btw, Lena (in her interview) said it Moscow vs. St. Petersburgh final...

Funny way of looking at it. Russians do know there is a rivalry going on between these 2 cities. Is this a way for Lena to motivate herself?

Today, Lena, but, of course, I would be happy if Sveta wins as well. It's just that I want to see Lena do it today; I believe it's more important for her to win at this stage. But I want both of them to hopefully not be too nervous and kick ass!

I can get used to these all Russian finals. Much less pressure than the semis.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I know I'm in the minority here, but I really want Sveta to win. I see the appeal of Elena, but I've been really impressed with Sveta's work ethic and attitude. She's constantly learning from her doubles partners - Aranxta, Navratilova, Elena L - constantly working on her weaknesses and never being complacent. I just admire that in a player and would rather see her win than Elena Dementieva. Not that I dislike Elena, I just prefer Sveta.

Elena purely for the fight and determination she has shown. She has beaten world class players, has endured the heartbreak of RG and really improved her game to compensate for her serve.

Thats hard work.

Sveta is going to have many an opportunity in the future. For Elena, she needs to strike now.

Hope its good match, but best of luck to Elena!!!

me ... Lena of cos'
Butttttttttttttttt realistically...me thinks Lena won't win..
She's given everything in QFs and SFs already...
if I'm right...I hope Lena won't be too discouraged by these 2 final losses...

"Logan Tom" is the best!!!

I think that if Elena wins this match, she'll finally have the confidence to finally start hitting her serves properly outside of practice

then we'll really see what she can do
