I don't think these players have ever met previously in their careers :eek:
Sania is obviously the hot favorite but she will have a harder time with Jie because Jie will run everything down and not give her any free points

I really feel irritated with players like Jie, who play in the ASV or Michael Chang mode. Hope Sania gets some good rest tonight. But looks like the mixed doubles is going for a 3-setter :( Hope she wins tomorrow.

Well you never know with sania!! Its gonna be a lot of pressure and Jie can really irritate Sania and break her rhythm but the crowd will be all for sania and if shes on she can beat anyone!! Hope she pulls this one through!!

Sania Mirza in straight sets. :worship:
Come on Sania make it double gold tommorow.

I don't think these players have ever met previously in their careers :eek:


:lol: You seem to remember Na Li match in Asian Championship 2004 but does not remember Zheng match in Hyderabad.

Mirza leads H2H 1-0

Mirza def Zheng 6-1 2-6 6-3 in hyderbad 2005.

Sania 6-0 6-0

I doubt this match will be that easy.
In fact, Zheng will probably give sania more trouble than Li. She'll chase everything down and drive her crazy. Still, sania seems to have matured enough to handle these types of players better. It'll definitely be a closer match than 6-0 6-0. :p

Sania! I am VERY impressed with her sudden surge of consistency so far

I agree that Jie will trouble Sania more than Li did... but I still think Sania's gonna win.

Sania can only lose if she is tired after playing 2-3 matches each day for the last 3-4 days. If it is a 2-setter Sania wins. In a 3 setter, tiredness may set in and she may lose. However, the vocal crowd would inspire her to give the last bit of energy into the court, and she is a patriot like Paes. She said on record that she likes to play as a team member.

For excessively trolling Nadia Petrova fans i'd imagine :confused:. If a lot of people report your posts to an admin/mod then you are given a warning or two before getting banned.

Jie is like Pauline Betz and the only way to neutralize that is high first service as well as take advantage of her serve and maybe hit some lobs. To change the tempo.

Looks like Sania is still not fit enough. Looks really tired in the match. I'd be surprised if she comes back from the set down to win the final.
