The same as with Jen!! Hope Justine will repeat her US Open & Dubai victories, & it will be 2 sets win :)
But Nastya is in great form, just she looked tired in her last 2 matches.
As Nastya won their last match, Justine will take her seriously, & will come to the match prepared!!

This match will be very interesting because we know that Myskina is one of the hottest indoor player of this season. Of course Justine doesn't want to lose to Myskina once again. I think Justine wants some revenge!!! But Myskina is very dangerous if she's on, her "down the line" shots is lethal and her game is very tricky. To win this match Justine must perform her A game, try to use her brain to win point by point and put some pressure to Myskina from the beginning of the match.
Good Luck Justine!!!

Yeah I agree with you Lady, the tiredness must be a big factor. Myskina is very tired because she played 3 sets match in the SF and F at Advanta, comparing to Justine whose took 2 weeks rest after Zurich. I hope Justine make it easier, and i pick Justine in 2.
GOOD LUCK JUSTINE!!!!!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Vendetta!! Justine looked tired and wasn't as into
that final in Leipzeg as much as Myskina. It was sooo
sloppy from the get-go. On the other hand you have
to give Myskina for taking her form into the Kremlin
Cup which was a very, very emotional event. There
was alot of maturity shown, and heart too.

I think Justine will win over Myskina in L.A. She'll
be the fresher of the two players, and Justine has
become the type of Champion in the classic Grand
Slam winner mode where they will do everything
they can to win the next meeting.

Indoors is clearly myskina's best surface, and Justine's worst surface. And Justine still able to win and took revenge :D
And we know Justine still has room to improve. Hope she will be better next year than this year :D :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
Good Luck Justine, for all your next matches :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

:bounce: me is happy :bounce: again she showed what she is made off.

But why does Justine always have such hard matches while Kim always seems to win effortlessly in two rather easy sets.

In the long run the disadvantage of her smaller frame will play a huge part healthwise I think. :sad:

I wonder about that too, but it was Justine who won Slams :D
