I know everyone's been caught up in the incredible anticipation for the Dubai final between Venus and Razzano---and I certainly have no doubt that that will be an epic match that will be remembered for generations to come---but here's a final match-up that I think might be even MORE interesting than that (hard to imagine I know!) It's a battle between 2 of the biggest rising stars in women's tennis, both of whom appear to be destined for the Top 10. Here's some stats.......
Wozniacki leads H2H 1-0
(They played each other at the 2008 US Open, where Wozniacki won 6-4 6-4.)
EDIT: Apparently if you count Fed Cup Wozniacki leads the H2H 2-0.

I'm looking forward to this. I think Wozniacki will win it in a close 3 set affair :)
Feb 21st, 2009, 02:52 AM
This final >>>>>>>>>>>>> (add 100 more >'s) Dubai final.
Cmon Vika! :yeah: I really like both though. :)
Feb 21st, 2009, 02:55 AM
Let's go Vika :rocker2: No livestream for this match though? :sad:
Feb 21st, 2009, 03:06 AM
I voted Vika in three though my head says Wozniacki in two because Vika must be exhausted.
Who cares about that hot mess of an other tournament this week anyway? This is a good-ass final matchup between two players who hopefully are just starting to manifest their full game. Until Wozniacki grows up further overall I'm pulling for Vika, but both have potential.
Feb 21st, 2009, 03:50 AM
I like them both so I'm pretty happy with whoever wins, but I think I'll go Caro in three.
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:08 AM
Vika struggles against her.
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:13 AM
Hopefully Wozniaki will save the tour from bitchy ball basher.
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:19 AM
I hope Vika can win, but I'll be happy either way.
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:23 AM
Wozniaki will win :)
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:45 AM
I like both girls but I'd really like Vika to win. Although for some reason Caro seems to have an edge over Vika. So I say Caro in 2. :shrug:
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:52 AM
Wozniacki - 6/4 6/1
Feb 21st, 2009, 07:08 AM
Caroline in straight sets
Feb 21st, 2009, 08:18 AM
Heart says: Vika.
Feb 21st, 2009, 08:41 AM
I hope Vika:scared:
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:03 AM
Unfotunately for Vika, her game style doesn't work very well against Wozniacki.
She'll probably hit more winners but a lot more UE.
Wozniacki 6-4 6-3.
Isn't the h2h 2-0. They played in fed cup a few weeks ago.
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:06 AM
This match is all about mentality. Vika's got all weapons to take caro out, if she can stay focused. And caro's got the intelligence and strategy to beat vika, if she can't.
Voted Azarenka in 3. At this point in time I also think it's closer to vika in 2 than caro in 3.
Hope I'm wrong !
No offense towards Peer, but caro/vika seems like a much more balanced doubles. I'm actually looking forward to that match also.

Yes they met in Fed Cup Zonal play or whatever it is called. But Fed Cup at this level is not counted as activity on the WTA page. Caro won 63 63. Caro won 1 other match during the fed cup. Vika won one and lost 2 (incl. the one to Caro). So their current win-loss ratio is a bit different that what is in the first post taken from WTA.
I am hoping that this is one of the big rivalries of the future, and to get it started Vika needs to win this since she is already 2-0 behind. But my mind says Caro.
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:16 AM
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:21 AM
Azarenka :hearts: 63 26 64
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:43 AM
c'mon Vika !!!!!!!!!
dont get frustrated at her pushing
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:54 AM
Feb 21st, 2009, 10:53 AM
I think Caroline will win her 4th title here.
Miss Atomic Bomb
Feb 21st, 2009, 10:55 AM
I hope Caro :hearts:
Feb 21st, 2009, 11:20 AM
Go Caro :hearts:
Feb 21st, 2009, 11:37 AM
Hopefully Vika :armed:
This surface is much more suited to her game. She doesn't have the best record against Caro but she has a better chance to beat her indoors than anywhere else. Plus she is the more confident of the two having enjoyed a title already in 2009 whereas Caro has struggled by her standards.
These two play the dubs final too, good luck to them. :yeah:
Feb 21st, 2009, 11:46 AM
Caro will wear her down1
Feb 21st, 2009, 12:09 PM
Caro takes this.
Feb 21st, 2009, 12:11 PM
Wozniacki will prove she's a superior player
Feb 21st, 2009, 01:08 PM
wozniacki in 2 cause she can do more things with the ball.Azarenka is too unidimensional imo.
Feb 21st, 2009, 01:13 PM
I'd be happy with either winning, but I'll say Vika in 2.
Feb 21st, 2009, 01:55 PM
Come on Caro :D
Feb 21st, 2009, 04:05 PM
Wozniacki in 3:)!
Feb 21st, 2009, 05:31 PM
Azarenka in 2. She is the better player.
Will there be live stream for this match? I appreciate any information.
Feb 21st, 2009, 05:41 PM
Tough match to predict but I like Wozniacki..... not many athletic players on the tour these days.....
Feb 21st, 2009, 06:51 PM
Looks like we can`t see it...:tape:
Could be a GS-final in the (near) future...:hearts::hearts::hearts:
I like them both very much, but Vika :kiss: will make in 3!
6:4 5:7 7:6 :)
Feb 21st, 2009, 07:03 PM
Wozniacki is really growing on me . Hopefully she will hold up the trophy :p
Feb 21st, 2009, 08:45 PM
I like both players but I would say Caro because Vika is probably tired after her long match against Lisicki.
Something like 4-6 6-3 6-3 for Caro and if Vika is not tired, than she'll win by something like 6-3 5-7 6-3
Feb 21st, 2009, 09:50 PM
I want Vika to win, but I think Wozniaki will take the W. I voted for Vika in 3 now go figure.
P.S.Vika has no business at 19 yrs of age being tired from a 3 set match earlier. If she is then she'll never win a slam. I doubt she'll be tired.

Screw you tennis channel.
Seriously why the hell am I paying for it if they're going to take out Dubai, as well as not even air the singles final where there is a camera. Dont show the Semis or the Quarters fine. At least show the damn Final.
Feb 22nd, 2009, 12:22 AM
So no livestream?
Feb 22nd, 2009, 01:01 AM
Vika in 3 sets.
Feb 22nd, 2009, 01:20 AM
My god... this is going pretty horribly for my girl Wozzy at the moment :eek: :confused: :sad:
