Well this is going to be a very exciting match. I'm even setting my alarm so I can get up to watch :lol:

The tension in their matchups always make them very exciting. The key in this match will be the serving. All four have exceptional volleys and reflexes, so there will be plenty of fast action rallies.

My gut is telling me Stosur/Stubbs 3-6 6-4 10-7

As usual, Bluber get the tough end of the draw. :o :o :(

No doubt one of the biggest matches of the year with the year's No.1 ranking potentially to be decided here. So looking forward to it, I just hope there is a stream. 3 of my faves involved!


The good thing with this matchup is, not only are they all exceptional first class doubles players, but they've played against each other in various combinations for many years. They're all great at the net, but Stosur still falls short a long way to the other 3 in that department, although she makes up for it with the biggest serve. Black/Huber really are the better team and should win this IMO.


Head-To-Head

2009 Dubai SF Black/Huber 6-4 6-4
2009 Madrid SF Black/Huber 7-5 7-6
2009 Eastbourne SF Stosur/Stubbs 6-4 7-6
2009 Canadian Open SF Stosur/Stubbs 3-6 6-3 10-7
2009 US Open SF Black/Huber 5-7 6-3 6-1



Black has only once failed to make the YEC final since 2001, and Stubbs has only once failed to reach the final since 2004 (in 2007, where she was defeated by... Black, in what was an amazing doubles match). So hopefully a similar match to the 2007 semis. :bounce:

The court here plays slow, so it would favor Black/Huber. Really could go either way but I'll still stick with my gut.
