Per, what makes you think Elke should beat Maria? I've seen a couple of photos of Elke, and she is much bigger and stronger than Maria. But Maria just whipped 2 very powerful girls yesterday. I know Elke has not fully concentrated on the juniors. But Maria has a much higher ranking than Elke. I would think Maria would be the slight favorite. But you could convince me otherwise.
P.S. - Per, I don't think Elke would look past Sharapova to Kuznetsova. Do you?
