Two players from different countries will play for the title. The only other final since the Australian Open in 2002 where Capriati beat Hingis was last year's Wimbledon, with Sharapova and Serena.

There have been six all-American finals, three all-Belgian finals and two all-Russian finals. This has resulted in a lot of boring and nervous final matches! Hopefully Sunday will be a bit more interesting.

Yeah, I hope they save a bit of this sloppy tournament with a high-quality final with lot of fighting, emotions and winners. They are both enjoying themselves on the court, Mary Playing great tennis. Hopefully it will be a good final!

I think you mean Saturday, men's final will be on Sunday. I hope Pierce will give Henin a run for her money and win in three tight sets, altough I'm sure Henin will take the title.
