For Justine:
1.High % of first serves, even if it means taking something off--Don't give Amelie a second ball.
2.Make sure to have a quick start to put Amelie in Chokomomo mood ASAP. Make her and the crowd think she's choking, even when she's not.
3. Hit to the extreme western forehand to get the highbounce off the topspin and mis-hits.
4. Keep Amelie away from the net-- and give her time-- as that is when the errors will come. If anything bring Amelie in on YOUR own terms.

For Amelie:
1.Be as agressive as possible.
2.Focus on holding serve and take more risks on the return.
3.Be prepared for a comeback if you are up-- accept possibly losing a lead and move on.
4.hope that Justine is having an off day.

that seems about right!!!!!!!It will be very imp for justine to get a good start tho..Choko can serve extremely well at times tho..Ju has to make sure she pressures mo's serves all the time..It might become but easier if mo loses her rhythm...But again for mo ,she is not gonna give absolute no pace to justine..I am sure will use hella of slice..As justine doesnt like to use slice too much..hence try to hit topspin winner with BH and can do lots of errors...Well they both know what to do and are both tactical...So lets see how they show up on saturday..

To Amelie:
Just remember this stat. In all of her GS SF appearances, Sharapova lost to the eventual champion. Therefore, just relax... and you'll...Oh. er... wait... maybe i shouldn't give that advice to chokomomo. =)

That's not advice. That's just a wish, hope, or a prayer. Not a tip, or advice though.

For Amelie:

Just relax - you made the final of a slam again and had to dig very deep to do it. You've gone one better than you ever have here before so relax, enjoy yourself, do yourself proud and let your racquet do the talking because when you're hitting freely it produces poetry.
