Good luck in the final, Maria! Su Wei is very tough. Maria needs to be ready for a long match. But Su Wei is also in the doubles final. So that may drain Su Wei of some energy.
After their 2002 junior Australian Open semifinal, in which Maria defeated Su Wei in three grueling sets, Maria said in her interview that she only played at 50%. And that if she plays better the next time she plays Su Wei, she'll beat her "easy". I was surprised Maria said that. She is a very confident girl. Let's see if she can back it up. Udachi Maria!
Hello Izzy/Hoytie! What brings you here? Glad to have you.
