I think Dinara in 3 ...

Sep 20th, 2008, 07:42 AM
Dinara 6-0 6-0.

Sep 20th, 2008, 07:47 AM
Sveta. Dont be fooled by todays scoreline.

Sep 20th, 2008, 07:49 AM
I think Dinara :sad: but hoping for Sveta in 3 :)

Sep 20th, 2008, 08:19 AM
I like both players, but Sveta needs this more. I don't care how she does it :haha:
Based on form, I expect Safina in 3 sets.

Sveta, you need this win!
Sveta will win in 3 though sets.

Sep 20th, 2008, 08:52 AM
After what Dinara just did to Nadia, I think if I was a tennis player I'd be too scared to face Dinara just now and I would just run far far away. Dinara in 2 providing Sveta has the courage to show up.

Sep 20th, 2008, 09:15 AM
Dinara will win :o

Sep 20th, 2008, 09:26 AM
I don't think Safina will sustain today's form. Kuznetsova's very good in the post-US Open month, traditionally.

Sep 20th, 2008, 09:31 AM
Sveta in 3

Sep 20th, 2008, 09:55 AM
Although I didn't see the match, it seems Dinara played incredibly well today, so it'll depend on whether she can reproduce that form which won't be easy.
I also think Sveta's gamestyle will cause more problems than Nadia's. Safina and Petrova play a similar style but Safina does it better. If Sveta plays smart, looking to mix it up, and executes well, she can cause real problems for Dinara. I say Kuzzy in 3!!! :yeah:

Sep 20th, 2008, 10:14 AM
Well, Svetlana seems to be playing very very good tennis so I would have to go with her. Scratch that, this is a final, Dinara in three. :lol:

Sep 20th, 2008, 10:22 AM
Sveta needs this more........... which wont help her.
hope its a good one tomorrow

Sep 20th, 2008, 10:28 AM
This is a final. Expect sveta to lose this, She hasn't won anything big in ages. Ihope she wins though.

Sep 20th, 2008, 11:11 AM
I think Dinara in three.But i think that the final will be very dramatic,because both players are playing very good tennis in Tokyo

Sep 20th, 2008, 11:44 AM
I hope Sveta wil win.

Sep 20th, 2008, 12:15 PM
Sveta in 3

Sep 20th, 2008, 12:23 PM
sveta all the way baby :rocker2:
safina has done enough winning lately :ras: time for a change! :D

Sep 20th, 2008, 12:32 PM
this must be a first on this site :eek:
that sveta has a significant amount of votes on a WWW poll :speakles:

Sep 20th, 2008, 01:05 PM
You'all need to realise Svetlana is a potential Goat, she has the game! Her new coach might mean an improved mentality. And Safina hasn't always delivered in competetive finals... So Svetlana in 3 if she's a bit off. Otherwise, Svetlana 6-0, 6-0 not losing more than 10 points all match, making 10 UFEs of course!

Sep 20th, 2008, 01:07 PM
If Lana loses in the final again :o:o:o:o

Sep 20th, 2008, 01:44 PM
Dinara in 3.

Sep 20th, 2008, 01:47 PM

Good luck Sveta. Davai!

Sep 20th, 2008, 02:33 PM
I don't care how but I hope Sveta wins this

Sep 20th, 2008, 02:34 PM
I hope Dinara will win, 3 sets probably :)

Rooting for Sveta in three. She's a nice girl, much better than Dinara.

Sep 20th, 2008, 04:17 PM
I probably would say Dinara, not because I see her as necessarily a better player, but because for Dinara the Final will be only her second serious trial of the tournament while Sveta had to be fully mobilized in her two previous matches.

Sep 20th, 2008, 04:38 PM
I like them both and would be happy with either, but this is dinara's to lose IMO. safina in 2.

Sep 20th, 2008, 04:46 PM
Sveta in 3. Please win sexy Sveta :sobbing:

Sep 20th, 2008, 04:59 PM
I think Sveta will definitely use her black charm to win this one in 3 sets. Maybe even two sets.

Sep 20th, 2008, 05:00 PM
Dinara in 3

Sep 20th, 2008, 05:15 PM
Forth title of the year for Safina. (Third Tier I).

Sep 20th, 2008, 05:26 PM
Dinara- 7-6(4), 6-2

Sep 20th, 2008, 05:27 PM
Safina in 2

6-4, 6-1

Sep 20th, 2008, 05:32 PM
Dinara in 3...I hope but Sveta could easily take it.

Sep 20th, 2008, 05:56 PM
Hopefully Kuznetsova. She needs it more.

Sep 20th, 2008, 07:14 PM
Safina. :shrug:

To think she's been able to sustain this kind of a level for half a year already. She's the real deal.


Sep 21st, 2008, 12:17 AM
Let's have a damned new dawn for Sveta when it comes to finals!


Sep 21st, 2008, 12:23 AM
Sveta in 3 sets. I really believe she can win this title! Either way she's had a great week.

Sep 21st, 2008, 12:30 AM
Hopefully Sveta. That would be great for her confidence. But it would be extremely hard as Safina is in great shape and she's tough mentally.

Sep 21st, 2008, 01:31 AM
I hope Sveta wins, but Dinara has been on fire over the past few months so I don't see her losing this one.

Sep 21st, 2008, 02:24 AM
Safina and Petrova play a similar style but Safina does it better.

I don't see similarities: Nadia is a rare today in women's tennis serve-and-volley player, Dinara is more of a baseliner. The only similarity I see is that both are big and strong.

Sep 21st, 2008, 02:33 AM
Safina. :shrug:

To think she's been able to sustain this kind of a level for half a year already. She's the real deal.


I'd imagine she'd be the fourth/next Russian slam winner, yes. I hope all of the Dinara bandwagon fans are happy about that; there are many of them.

But the thing about Dinara is that she IS beatable. It'll just need a fairly special day from her opponent now.

I actually kind of want Dinara to win this title. Since she's now so much better than Dementieva according to everyone, I want her to actually back that up with numbers and titles. Her in two, maybe three.

Sep 21st, 2008, 02:49 AM
Sveta 6-3 6-1 :smoke:

Sep 21st, 2008, 03:03 AM
Hopefully Sveta so she can have a title this year, but if Dinara wins I will be just as happy:)

Sep 21st, 2008, 03:12 AM
I think Safina needs to win.

She's only been this good this year because of her improved mental ability, which of course leads to more confidence and better shots on court. Could you imagine if she continues to lose in the big finals? I can definetly see it. I would not be surprised if next year Safina makes it to all four Slam finals, but loses all of them.

Safina needs to win bigger tournaments playing better players. Besides Henin and Serena earlier, the only notable name I can remember off the top of my head that Safina has consistently beaten is Jankovic.

But I think Safina is going to lose. Sveta has been in great form this tournament. Call me biased, but I think the Jankovic v. Kuznetsova match will be a better match than the final

Sep 21st, 2008, 03:18 AM
Hopefully Dinara.
Keep up the impressive run Dinara :D

Sep 21st, 2008, 05:33 AM
congrats to Safina! i have a feeling she's going to become #1 before very long.
