Re: Finals Sunday OOP
Great final coming up between Jelena and Maria. Interesting stats which are as follows:-
Titles (WTA & ITF): 23-13 Maria
Head-to-Head: 5-2 Maria - 4 of these matches were on hard court (Maria winning all 4).
One of Jelena's two victories was a walk-over (Rome Semi 2008). Last met in Tokyo in Sept 2009 - Maria was 5-2 up in the first when Jelena retired injured
Jankovic win/loss this year: 31/15
Maria win/loss this year: 38/9
On the above, you would have to say that Maria was the favourite. However, whilst Jelena has had a very poor season so far and has not won a tournament since Indian Wells 2010, her form has picked markedly during the North American hard court season and I would say that she was in with a shout.
