SAMMMMY please win this in 2 sets.. realistically i think it will go to three and its going to be a close and exciting battle. Hopefully both girls are at their best and if so then its the WTA and IW who will win

Hopefully Sam. If she keeps her mind off the fact that she is playing an out of form player in a Premier Mandatory semi final, and in the final she will go up against a player who she has beaten the last time they played...then she might not choke.

I like them both, but Jelena needs to win something big to get that confidence and to re-establish herself as a proper top player.

Jankovic easily here. Todays match between Stosur and Sanchez was terrible.

most likely it will be JJ in two uneventful sets, but who knows, anything can happen.

Why do I get the feeling that all of Stosur's shots are going to land in for a resounding and convincing straight set victory?

So happy at the odds, $1.75 for Janka is an absolute steal.

Come on people, watch the replays, I have twice, and todays match was a laugh. Stosur beat a girl
6-4/7-6 who was serving at 39%, couldnt hit more than 2 shots in a rally, couldnt return, couldnt volley, and who had 15-40 on Stosurs serve in the first set, but blew the lot.

Janka is going to cruise tomorrow.

If Martinez Sanchez could keep 2 shots in in each rally that's about 1 shot more than Kleybanova could... ;)

Whilst I agree Kley was erratic at times, she was far more impressive than Sanchez. Very solid serving until 4-2 second set and some cracking winners.

If Sam dishes up 40% service Janka will be all over her, unlike Sanchez that netted almost everything.

Its also important to note that Sanchez had 0-30 twice on Stosurs serve, and failed to win another point.

I think Stosur is going to be very effective on serve against Jankovic. She has a good first serve, but maybe more importantly, a very effective kick serve on this surface. It is much more difficult for a righthander to receive that second serve as they get it above their head on their backhand side. 60 % of the points Jankovic got against Kleybanova was a Kleybanova UE so she didn't prove anything really. Jankovic was decent the few rallies she got to play but I think she has to be even better to beat Stosur. Stosur's mental strength will probably decide this one one way or the other.

Nightmare match-up for Stosur, especially if Jankovic hits CC to her backhand around 80% of the time, which i think she will.

Stosur will always struggle when she has to inject enormous amounts of pace into her shots, against opponents who give her very little. Jankovic a la '08, would probably be able to expose Stosur's leaden footwork more efficiently, but even less than herself, it's still possible.

Jankovic in 2.

I dont think Jankovic is anywhere near her late summer/fall 2008 form.
But her draw worked out perfectly. Kleybanova was up 42 40-15 2nd set and was just exhausted, Kim played a fresher Alisa.
