Elena:
winners - 15
UEs - 12
at net - 2/2

Sorana:
winners - 11
UEs - 23
at net - 4/5

Yet another VERY convincing performance from Elena. That was a super match from her, arguably even better than against Amelie. She was striking the ball very well aside from one particular game in the first set where she hit four unforced errors, plus several backhand down the lines, a few forehands behind Cirstea, and several running forehands that were just :drool:.

Cirstea was error-prone early on, but 17/22 of her unforced errors were in the first set. The second set was very well-played from both.

Fifth final of the year. :hearts: Take this opportunity, Lena.

Sorana was not bad, Elena was just too good, Sorana will learn from this what is high level of tennis.

A title would be a nice way to finish up arguably her best year ever.

The only sad thing is that she won't reach a new career high:-(

Lena hasn't lost more than 4 games in each of her last 3 matches (62 62 in 2nd Rnd, 64 60 in QFs and 62 62 in SFs) :eek:

Good win.

Tournament isn't the greatest though, people.

Poor loss, Sorana.

Will DFeva become the GOAT if she gets this Tier III tomorrow?

Delicious stuff from Elena again! :woohoo: :hatoff:

No more Doublefaultieva where you shivered with her at every serve game. :p

Win the title! :rocker2:

We know that.

Poor loss, Sorana.

Poor loss to #5 indeed. And no, but 11 career titles is always nice to see. A tournament win after struggling for a few tournaments is always accepted.

Delicious stuff from Elena again! :woohoo: :hatoff:

No more Doublefaultieva where you shivered with her at every serve game. :p

Win the title! :rocker2:

Yes it was. She hasn't served a double fault in her last two matches, I think...

Edit: Wrong. She had one today. But none yesterday, so I was close.

She served one DF today. Thats 5 aces and 1 DF in 2 matches. No more DFeva

I feel Elena has been under the radar in this tournament. Europsort didn't list any of her match scores, so basically I'm getting all my info and updates on her from this WTA forum. Thank God for this WTA forum! :worship: thanks. I can't wait to see some clips from some of her Luxembourg tournaments. I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I don't think Caroline should be a problem for Elena.

Lena with another Gold medal performance

The girl just needs a Slam. I can't help loving Elena; she truly is irresistable, even if I feel like a masochist for being her fan. I just want her to succeed. I just hope her recent consistency and confidence keeps her going far in Grand Slams. The farther she goes in Slams the better chance she has of winning them: common sense 101. LOL ;)

Expected win for Elena :D
Good chances in the final, although Wozniacki should like Elena´s game :unsure:
But Elena won at the Olympics against her...

We´ll see, good luck :D
