The tournament is coming to it's climax. We had two close matches in the semi finals today. Now there is a rematch of the 2007 US Open final between the two top seeds. Who is going to emerge victorious and will lift the trophy tomorrow?

Have your say and good luck to your favourite!

Henin will win easily. Sveta played pretty crappy today.

The butchering of Sveta will continue.

Justine 6-2, 6-3.

Ditto.

This would be a good chance for Svetlana to prove she's the #2 player.

She won't though -- for she isn't REALLY the #2 player.

Justine might throw a bone at Sveta and let her win. This is merely a warm up. Justine has done enough excercise so now it's time to save energy. Australian Open is more important. Besides, there are quite a few dangerous floaters that she could face at early rounds.

Oh yeah - why not just tank....its not like she's on a 25+ match win streak right now.

Sveta has the capacity to make every match ugly even when she wins..but she won't, Justine to win and let her 5 games

Hope it'll be a high quality 3 setter with Juju winning.
Although Sveta would lose in the end,at least she somehow prove to others she IS able to threaten Juju if she continues to improve.:angel:

Anyway,don't forget her saying that she wants to challenge the #1 rank.:scared: :p

kuznetsova should just withdraw before the match starts, cos its a foregone conclusion that she will lose

Justine is the better player, Sveta needs this kind of match to see how far away she is from the top.

Cap in the ass? More like another feather in Henin's cap.

It'd be nice if Sveta shocked us all, though.

And her 2004 and 2006 Sydney titles were backed up by runs to the AO final. Perhaps more history repeating itself...

Just to take a chance, I'm going to say Sveta will win. :rolleyes: She looked dangerous against Schiavione and I didn't see her match against Vaidisova. But everytime I think Sveta is playing extremely well then she deflates to Henin. Honestly, is it Henin's sheer quickness that forces Sveta to ALWAYS be out of position. It's annoying. I want her to play well against Henin. :mad:

Absolutely.

I see Sveta playing intense, but if she gets too far behind it will be a 6-2, 6-3 set for Justine.

Justine had a bye, a W/O and a 6-2 6-0 win against Kanepi (which, basically spells 'useless half hour training'). That second set against Ana was anything but flawless, low serve percentage, loads of double faults... She's not quite there yet, so I think it will be a three set match with Justine winning, simply because Sveta has a mental problem playing her.

Kuznetsova's rarely an easy win for anyone, so I agree.

I have a horrible feeling there will be a big upset!

9/10 I would say Juju in 2 easily but something tells me this match may be close

Not yet, not yet. Sveta just missed a breakpoint for a 4-0 lead and now faces three breakpoints. :(
But we can't discuss live scores here.
