I think Nastya will win... if she plays like she did vs. Jen, that will be too much for Elena to overcome with her weaknesses.

I am so happy that both Lena and Nastya are in the final!
Sorry Nastya but I really hope Lena wins it. With this title, Lena can finally be in the top 5.
But honestly, I think Nastya is going to win it. She always does well against her compatriots.
Go Lena!

Here's your head-to-head...

3 Toronto (http://angelfire.com/space/wta/tur2003/toro1255.htm) Aug 17 2003 E Dementieva(9) - A Myskina(5) 2-6 6-1 6-1
QF Sarasota (http://angelfire.com/space/wta/tur2003/sara1093.htm) Apr 6 2003 A Myskina(2) - E Dementieva(5) 6-2 3-6 6-1
2Australian O. (http://angelfire.com/space/wta/tur2002/aust361.htm) Jan 27 2002 E Dementieva(12) - A Myskina 6-4 6-2
SF Moscow (http://angelfire.com/space/wta/tur2001/mosc346.htm) Oct 7 2001 E Dementieva(8) - A Myskina-WC 6-7 6-1 7-5
2 Zurich (http://angelfire.com/space/wta/tur2000/zuri281.htm) Oct 15 2000 A Myskina-Q - E Dementieva(8) 6-4 2-6 6-1
SF Palermo (http://angelfire.com/space/wta/tur1999/pale188.htm) July 18 1999 A Myskina-Q - E Dementieva 3-6 6-3 6-2

I watched their last match in Toronto, in person... and that match, quite frankly, SUCKED. They both were horrible.

I'm sure this match will be much better. :)

I'm gonna go for Nastya though it's hard to chose who will win but my heart is with Nastya :)
I think she is playing better and calmer, maybe not so agressive like Lena but she showed she can hit great winners today. Sawing Lena's not best serve today I would go for Nastya. But I think that girl who will be less nervous will win. Nastya always plays great against Russians and wants to win over them so much. Hope for great final! :)

Nastya has a great record against Russians.

She is 3-3 against Dementieva, which is quite good because Elena was a better player for a while.

Nastya only has a losing record against Bovina... which only leads me to be more jealous, and angry.

It will be Elena's all attack game vs Nastya's defence turn attack game.... :)

Boy, I really wish Elena can win this more....
But at least this is one Grandslam final whereby I like both players very much. :)

I chose Elena. I respect myskina, she has really lifted her game, but Elena was always the potential Slam champ in my eyes.

I can imagine that it will be a nervy affair, I just hope Elena can relax and not feel the pressure. Elena is more solid on clay, so I hope she can raise her game and standard to take this.

Udachi Elena! :)

Jun 3rd, 2004, 07:45 PM
I go with Nastya because she is playing better and is the No.1 Russian which means a lot to her so I want her to stay there! :D I like them both a lot, but I have to go with Anastasia Myskina! :) Good luck Nastya! :bounce:

I hope Elena wins. :D But I like Anastasia as well and she would be a fine French Open champion. :)

It's just great that Russia will finally have a female grand slam singles tennis champion! :bounce: I've waited years for this. But Olga Morozova has waited even longer. She must be so happy. :D

I can't choose. Probably slight nod to Elena, only because it would be a success of two people I like very much - her and Olga, as opposite to only person in Nastya's case.

Me too... ELENA! WIN IT ALL, MY GIRL! This is so exciting!!! I like Myskina as much as I like Elena but Elena has a bigger heart showing her love for tennis. I can't wait to see the final!!! I want to tape the our first dream final!! This is a dream final came true for all of us... it's a great start and getting better and better... poor all Belguim and Americans fans will have to get used to it! :tape: :p

both players have had 2 really good consecutive wins in this tournament over top players. dementieva over davenport then mauresmo and myskina over venus then capriati. so both should have a lot of confidence going into it. myskina can hit hard but dementieva's forehand is one of the best in the womens game atm. its tough to pick a winner, i want elena to win but myskina might.

not really... I don't give a flying pig who wins a poll and the final. I like them equally both. In fact, I suggested to add an "I don't care" option to this poll. I just know people vote here not because they hate the opposite player, but because they like their favourite a little bit more (like in my case) or they think that Nastya/Elena have a better chance to win.

Elena has been just brilliant in her last two matches and if she maintains her form I'd like to see her win. I hope they both play well and noone in GM starts moaning about the absence of "stars" in the Final. Its nice that we will end up happy whoever wins.

I like Lena more... but I voted for Nastya.

In her last 2 matches... Nastya has shown qualities of a CHAMPION. Closing out matches with confidence. Knowing when to be aggressive, and when to play defensive.

Lena has played quite well also... but she still seems unsure to me. I think Nastya is a step ahead of Lena at this time.

Jun 4th, 2004, 07:26 PM
Let me say it simple - if Elena Dementieva is ever in this match, she will not lose it. She is a better clutch player, that I have no doubt about. If nastya gives her a chance like she gave to Sveta, she'll be gone, Sveta has no killer instinct to talk about, lena has the best killer instinct of all Russian girls. Nastya's chance is doing to Dementieva what she's done to Williams and Capriati, i.e. never letting her into the match.

DEETHELICK
Jun 4th, 2004, 07:39 PM
ys - I think you got it right. Thing is Nastya will be a little more nervous tomorrow than against Jen/Venus as it is SO much at stake and an all Russian affair. Elena is a great come from behind player, and in this match, she is the definite underdog in many people's eyes.

Myskina can win this, but never count out Elena IMO.

I just hope Elena believes in herself tomorrow when it counts... I have faith in you Elena!!

Udachi Elena!!!! :D

I disagree... Nastya may have been a weak clutch player before, but she's proven me different now. If Lena is serving for the match... I think Nastya will be quite confident that she won't need to do much to even the set.

Nastya gave a chance to Sveta... and Lena would be home if Wall didn't get cramps.

When was the last time Nastya has beaten an experienced quality player in a close match? From what I remember recently - Capriati and Henin at YEC, Clijsters at AO, she was outplaying their opponents but as soon as it would come to decisive stage, she would inevitably flop. Most of her quality wins against elite players are straight set routs.


Nastya gave a chance to Sveta... and Lena would be home if Wall didn't get cramps.
And that based on what? They were "on hold" in the third set, and by then Lena definitely made Anna run a lot, made her return a lot of bullets and definitely wore her down. Even without cramps, I don't think Smashnova would held it physically.
