Molik is going to get her butt handed to her. Maria is very vengeful, and will have the Zurich loss in her mind the whole time.

I'm guessing Maria in 2 sets, Alicia has been good, but Maria seems to be in stunning form. Anything can happen though, but I'll be cheering for me Masha. :)

There is only one player who managed to beat Maria in the final by now, and that player is Alicia.. :eek: Maria is a better player than she was back in October. She is a better player than Molik. Alicia has also quite improved since. Still, Masha will continue her Federer-esque season with a win.

Well, Maria won now almost everything: GS, YEC, Tier I, Tier III, and Tier IV. :worship:

It's about time that she wins a Tier II title. So good luck to her! :bounce: :bounce:

But I fear she never will win a Tier V... :sad:

maria already got her revenge, wasn't that in linz or something, QFs
Why do people imagine the lower ranked player can only win in two. Molik beat an inform mauresmo handily, maria beat a dani who is a class below amelie.
Molik serves well she wins, she puts pressure on the maria serve.
maria has a good finals record and will be tough.

I think Molik will win in 3 sets because it will be very difficult for Sharapova to break that strong serve. If she does then it will be Sharapova that wins cause her backhand is stronger than Molik's. I voted for Molik though.

I like Maria to win this one in 3 tough sets. 6-4,6-7,7-5

If Maria has an actual plan to defeat do Molik by dictating play, returning well and exploring Molik's backhand, she can win in straights.

That's my prediction. But it's a risky one because honestly? Either one can win easily or struggling.

Both ladies have huge serves. The difference is therefore the return. Huge edge to Maria. If both ladies serve well, Maria wins. If both serve poorly, Maria wins. However, if Maria serves poorly and Alicia well, Alicia wins.

This should be a great match. It will be huge for Molik if she can pull it out. I say Molik in 3.

Molik is in the form of her life right now, but the only reason she beat Maria in the Zurich final was that Maria had a shoulder-injury and couldn't serve properly. Maria shouldn't have too many problems today.
