i really hope maria can do it but she looked really exhausted and i dont think winning the final will make a difference in getting to #1 cause i think either way shell have to go so far! but im not sure petrova was quite impreessive in her semi and maria looked so tired i just hope she has enough energy left to take the title keep fighting masha! you can do it! :) good luck!

Nadia in 2! She's amazing this week.

Oct 28th, 2006, 03:32 PM
Nadia will squash Maria leaving a big splotch.

Oct 28th, 2006, 03:46 PM
Great finale...Gotta go with Masha though...7-6, 6-7, 7-6 :)

Oct 28th, 2006, 03:49 PM
I think Nadia is fresher and that she will win :sad: :sad: but I hope Masha will prove me wrong.Davai Masha! :rocker:

Oct 28th, 2006, 03:54 PM
nadia or masha ?:scratch: well i will have to stick with what i've always supported : masha in 3 sets :)

Oct 28th, 2006, 03:55 PM
Masha 7-5 6-4

Oct 28th, 2006, 03:57 PM
It's more important for Nadia to win
Beat Sharapova in a meaningful match,
and withdraw next week

Oct 28th, 2006, 04:03 PM
Masha has too much pride to tank a final... so she'll win!
Of course she'll be dead tired but she gets a week off b4 YEC

Oct 28th, 2006, 04:13 PM
i think nadia will surprise everyone and maybe win quite easily. something like 6-3 6-4

i think it really depends on how both of them are serving though ;)

Oct 28th, 2006, 04:16 PM
That's going to be another match in which we'll see hard hitting girls. Maria loves
when her opponents play like that so I think she'll win this match but in 3 sets as Nadia is playing great tennis this week.

Oct 28th, 2006, 04:19 PM
It will be a really great final,but I hope Maria will win,although it will be tough against Nadia,she's playing great!Go Mariaaaa:bounce:

Oct 28th, 2006, 04:20 PM
Nadia in 3 sets. 6/4 3/6 7/5

Oct 28th, 2006, 05:12 PM
I'm hoping Maria, but realistically, I see Petrova winning this. She's just playing so well and seems so fresh at the moment, really having easy matches after easy matches. Maria has looked just tired and spent, and even though all her matches have been in straights, she's struggled in 5 out of 6 sets. I hope she can pull together one more win, then rest for a whole week and get her energy back up.

Nadia beat Amelie in the Doha final, and Justine in the German Open final.
Even if she wins this, she still has to beat these players in majors and big YEC matches

Oct 28th, 2006, 05:28 PM
Maria needs to serve a bit better than today. She raises her level against the best players anyway, so I'd expect her to win in 3 sets. That said I wouldn't be surprised if Nadia won, considering the wonderful form she's been in.

Oct 28th, 2006, 06:35 PM
wow 24 votes apiece...

I say Sharapova. She knows how to step it up when she needs to.

Oct 28th, 2006, 06:42 PM
true,nadia did beat momo and jhh in two finals but don't u think masha isn't comparable to others? she's something between a #1 and the best player at the moment and i don't think masha is goin' to lose inthe next few times.
masha in straight sets:7-5 6-2

Oct 28th, 2006, 06:46 PM

Oct 28th, 2006, 06:50 PM
I've been waiting for this re-match all year ....:drool:

Sharapova is gonna get badly pe-trov-ed in three bad-tempered sets 6-2, 6-7, 6-4 :bounce:

Oct 28th, 2006, 06:58 PM

Oct 28th, 2006, 07:53 PM
Sharapova in two tiebreaks.

Oct 28th, 2006, 07:55 PM
Sharapova in three 6-4, 2-6, 7-5

Oct 28th, 2006, 09:12 PM
i really hope masha can do this! ha ha petrova is winning the other poll for the final and masha is winning this one! lol i wonder which poll will turn out to predict the winner! :)

Oct 28th, 2006, 09:15 PM
Looking forward to the final. Hard to say, victory in 3 sets to Maria Sharapova

Oct 28th, 2006, 09:21 PM
damn now its all even! :( please get enough energy together to win masha please! :)

Oct 28th, 2006, 09:24 PM
Petrova 6/3 7/5

Oct 28th, 2006, 10:34 PM
Sharapova's mental toughness will get her through 76 76.
