Kim in 2 6-4 6-3

Kim's going to give Jankovic a lesson in how to do the slide/splits correctly. Hopefully Jankovic takes note so as not to look silly the next time she tries it over and over!:lol: She's going to watch the replay and wonder what the heck she was thinking.

Jelena has had an unbelievable (thought not maybe tactically smart) run to reach the finals. I thought she was gonna retire after the 2nd set to save her self for Melbourne).

Clijsters LOVE playing players that play exactly like her....tries to hit the ball mach 5, quick around the court, strong off both sides, etc...because she does everything better. The only players that give her problems are ones that can out-bludgeon her (Sharapova or Davenport) or ones that are all-courters (Mauresmo, Henin-Hardenne)....otherwise players like Jelena will be at Clijster's mercy tomorrow.

Clisters in 2. Although with Jelena's will and fight these last 2 weeks...i wouldn't be surprised for a miracle 3 set win for the new bad girl in town ;-)

Kim in two, possibly three.

Unfortunately for Jelena, Kim has better groundstrokes, is quicker by a very small margin, better volleyer.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jelena won but Kim doesn't have many problems closing out people who play like her. Ivanovic and Vaidisova detest playing defenders like Jelena but Kim, with all the experience in the world, will outplay a tired Jelena.

But good luck to Jelena - she can prove me wrong.

Jelena in two. Just because that would look nice in the H2H's and would be the perfect end to a perfect tournament in Sydney.

According to posters who saw the Jelena/Nicole match, this tough 3-setter has taken a toll on Jelena:eek: ...sore back and suffering from blisters:sad: so I'd give Kim the edge in the final for that reason.:worship:

Jankovic can win this if she plays Kim the way that Justine plays Kim - i.e. taking the initiative as well as playing great defence. Just not sure that Jankovic has the energy left.

Well, it can go either way. IMO the match won't end in 2 sets, it'll go to 3.

My prediction: Kim in 3 :rocker2:

Kim will end Jelena's run in two sets.

Jan 11th, 2007, 02:49 PM
Clearly some aspects of Jankovic's game have been modelled on Clijsters'. ;) Today she was sliding on hardcourt, and yesterday she was doing splits!
But seriously - her training camp in South America this Christmas seems to have done a world of good in the fitness/heat resistance department. This said, I think it'll be a 3-setter to Jankovic.

Well, I love both and I have no idea what will happen tomorrow, but...
I think Kimmie will pull this out! Mostly I hope this can be a great match, JJ please get 12 hours of sleep beforehand :lol: ...Best of luck to both!! :hearts:

I don't want to vote on this one. I desperately want Kim to win - but despite the H2H I really don't know how Kim managed to pull out wins the last two times they met. Especially the last time - I was in despair at one point and all really did seem lost. I guess it was Kim's experience that counted in the end. But Jelena is beating more and more top players - and so far Kim has only just managed to hold her back.

I would almost put aside any worries about the Janky blister treatments etc. they seem to have happened in nearly every match this season, I would like to see the Janky finish the job but old strainer post legs might have different ideas :confused:

Be absolutely great if Jelena could pull out a win here, so superb, i'm running out of superlatives to describe her at the moment. just such a great effort here in Sydney:worship:

Jelena has a chance in this match i believe. both KIm and jelena superb movers, solid serves, but as we know, this will be a battle off the ground. If jelena can find the lines enough with that backhand, she could pull off the win here. She should try and focus on the Clijsters forehand which can break down, especially in prolonged rallies. Jelena could really force the errors with her superlative movement and anticipatory skills.

Go Jelena!:bounce:

She is wearing bad shoes. That's why she has blister treatmenst :)
The new shoes will arive in Melbourne, so there she will be fine with the legs :D

Has to be Kim, doesn't it? She is just out there enjoying her tennis right now and, may I add, kind of sneaking under the radar. Jankovic is too tired to run down the tireless efforts of Kim and we all know Kimmy can match her stride for stride.

Kim in 2. 7-6 6-4!

Jan 12th, 2007, 03:04 AM
Should be a close 3 set battle between the 2 best players of the year so far.. Ivanovic is the main factor in the match i think.. if she plays like she did against Hingis & Mauresmo she will be hard to beat but if she is plagued by injuries like her match against Vaidisova she will be unable to overcome a much superior opponent in Clijsters...

I'm hoping Kim will win, but Jelena has been playing so well that its too hard for me to pick a winner :lol: However Jelena must be getting tired from all the matches she's played plus she did struggle with a few little injuries against Nicole so maybe that will give the edge to Kim.
