uh oh!! I LOVE both! I think Masha will win tho. she'll attack elenas serve.
Oct 22nd, 2004, 07:44 PM
Hopefully Elena will thrash her.
Oct 22nd, 2004, 07:48 PM
if she trahes maria i wonder what she'll do with venus :lmao:

With Lena D the serve is always a question, but somehow she has recently managed to find the answer. She has been playing good tennis recently, and a second final in as many weeks wouldn't be shocking. On the other hand, she did just have a tough match with a out of form Sugiyama.
Masha must be brimming with confidence adding quality to quantity in her recent match performance. She has so many weapons on a surface this fast, and in top form she could easily hold and get a few breaks in hand to take the match
However, Lena D won't let Maria get as many free points on serve as Maria would like, and the fast low bouncing surface will probably make Lena's serve a little harder to attack. It will be close, but I think it goes to Elena in three sets, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3.

It won't be easy for Alyona but let's hope she'll win again ;)

Maria is a high quality opponent. But Elena is playing some great tennis. Maria is going to attack Elena, it will be good to see how Elena counter attacks and if she can use her superior mobility to her advantage.
Off the ground Elena is better, the serve goes to Maria. Elena is a great returner. Hopefully both girls will not be nervous or in awe and just provide a good match.
I hope Elena wins. Good luck! :)

Dementieva's serve may get attacked, but Maria will get attacked back by the solid groundstrokes of elena and dementieva's serve is not that bad. I mean she has a lower speed than the rest of the field, but her placement of the serve is very good. anyways, i think elena will beat sharapova in 3 sets, but three very tough sets. IT WILL BE HARD!!!!!
Oct 22nd, 2004, 08:29 PM
Elena in 2, it'll be tight though! Come on Elena! :D
Oct 22nd, 2004, 08:32 PM
I root for Alyona but I think Maria will win this one!She leads in her head to head and she must be confident after her win against Venus!
Oct 22nd, 2004, 08:59 PM
Elena 7-5;6-4. Hope Elena will be fresh after today's marathon
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:13 AM
I like both. But I believe Maria will win it quite easily..... Maria looks confident and must be hungry for a Tier 1 title to prove that "I am not just a one-Slam wonder!!" On the other hand, Elena looks mentally and physically tired!!!
Maria win it something like 6-1 6-4!
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:30 AM
Good Luck lena!
me just hope u won't be too tired after 2R & QF :sad: GOOOOOOOO lena!
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:46 AM
Maria looked better. Elena is tired. Maria has a great return. Elena's serve is not great. Russian players play to ranking. Pride counts. Elena is very determined. Maria is very determined. Elena is recovering from another outing with Nastya. Maria will be on a high after beating venus. both would like a Tier 1 title and might wrongly fancy a final against Patty. No idea who will win.

Udachi Masha :kiss:
Kick Demented's ass :kiss:
Revenge for Bovina :D
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:57 AM
this is a hard one but i put Maria in 3, Go Maria!!!

Elena has the speed and consistency in rallies. Maria has the killer shots. Maria will want to dominate off her serve and keep the rallies short. If she can do that, she can win. Mental attitude will play a big part too - and i think there may be a little "needle" in the match following Elena's comments after Wimbledon.
Should be interesting. I go for Maria in this one.
Oct 23rd, 2004, 02:18 AM
Maria actually has a 2-1 lead over Lena in H2H :eek:
I said Masha in 3.
I really hope this is a great match.
I want Masha to win but either girl winning would be a winning result for me :D
- She made the SF of an event other than a Tier III
- On a surface other than grass.
And he said it wasn't possible :p
Oct 23rd, 2004, 02:37 AM
IF dementieva's serve is a big issue
why she can still beat mauresmo,kuznetsova,venus and some of the hard hitters..
so theres no question she can beat sharapova..
in fact she beat bovina alreaedy 3 times in a row in a month..
so i think she can win this one..
but probably another 3 tight sets
6-4 5-7 6-4
Oct 23rd, 2004, 02:48 AM
they have played 3 times on tour
3 different surface
on grass maria won in 3 tight sets 2-6 7-6(4) 6-2
on hard court dementieva won in st8 set 6-4 7-6(4)
on clay maria won 6-1 6-4
so is zurich using hardcourts or carpet?
Oct 23rd, 2004, 06:15 AM
Though Elena is tired, remember how mentally tough she is. She will fight to the end no matter what.
Oct 23rd, 2004, 08:52 AM
Maria in 2 sets :)
Oct 23rd, 2004, 09:06 AM
PLzzzzzz :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

Maria in straights
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:20 PM
to admin, me's not doing livescores here
current result: lenaD 6-4
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:34 PM
winning Swiss will be not too great achievement for Masha (after Wimbledon!) but i believe it will be first tier I title for Lena, and she really deserves it! Being in so much finals and losing, now its time to grab a title..
Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:37 PM
soo u r cheering for who?
For both of them, but more for Lena.
And it was similar yesterday when I cheered for both Venus and Masha.
