Safina in 3. Sorry Lena D, you had your chances in the past,this is Safina's. So I go for her, come on Safina:yeah:

wow talk about history repeating itself. straight after coming from behind to beat sharapova 2 years ago, she lost to kuzzy something like 7-5, 6-0. a few weeks before that though, she beat kuzzy in 3s in berlin or rome.

shes come back from the brink to beat sharapova again, now plays someone who she beat in 3s a few eeks ago!

i predict dementieva 6-3, 6-4

I don't know. I'll give a slight edge to Dinara. I feel like it's her slam to win. I just have a feeling.

I hope Dinara wins and she's capable of it, but I won't be too upset if Dementieva wins either

I'm afraid Safina in 2, 6-1, 6-4.

Prove me wrong Lena :rocker2:

I have a bad feeling about this one. Lena should be favourite but (like in Berlin) I think Dinara's confidence is high and she's shown she can follow up big wins.

I feel good about Elena's chances. Amazing opportunity for both though, as always with Lena D.

Whoever wins this match wins the title. I truly think so. I like both, but of course I'm rooting for Elena.

This RG has just been amazing. For me anyway.

where is the poll.?
anyway this will a tough match for safina beacuse elena is much different from sharapova. unlike sharapova, he gets a lot of balls back and her forehand is quite solid. Dinara must get a good start and take advantage of lena's weak serve and be agressive. Otherwise ena will punish her.
anyway back to the original question
i'll say safina in three.(although i woun't be dissapointed if lena wins this.)

Both girls are so tough. Elena's serve hasn't been that bad, but I think Dinara in 3.

Dinara in three. Mentally right now Dinara is as strong as a rock.

Elena is tougher mentally than Dinara and Maria. It's up to her game and physical condition to take this. If it goes three setters it would be tough for her again, she's kinda thin for clay.

goldenlox

There's a lot of parity in the top half. Closely matched on clay

AnnaK_4ever
Jun 2nd, 2008, 08:05 PM
It's on clay so confident and in-form Dinara should win this.

This could go either way, and it's hard to pick a winner. I hope it's Safina. She has been amazing for the past month, and I want her to at least reach the semis. Safina will be the favorite.

Safina who played six sets today is getting one (unexpected) day of rest now!

Elena is very mentally tough. She's back in the top 5 with that serve

brain - safina
heart - lena

Elena is very mentally tough. She's back in the top 5 with that serve

her serve isn't that bad anymore though
This is Elena's best shot, she has Dinara and then most likely Sveta who if she plays like at the USO SF, Elena should make Final, so come on Elena!:bounce:

Safina is once again the underdog here even though she won berlin beating lena.

After seeing Dinara's performance today, this seems like a huge toss-up. What a fighter. Safina in 3.

Zvonareva had an absolute meltdown out there today. Who's to say Dementieva can't cause the same to happen with Safina? On the other hand Safina was mentally tough against Maria. But Elena has been to the Finals here before. :scratch:

I disagree, Maria is mentally toughest on the tour and that says alot about Dinara for fighting her off today. Safina is on fire . Not to mention that Zvonareva layed down for Dementieva.

2003 BERLIN OPEN CLAY (O) R64 D. SAFINA 2-6 6-2 1-0 ret.
2004 US OPEN HARD (O) R128 E. DEMENTIEVA 2-6 6-1 6-2
2006 ROME CLAY (O) Q D. SAFINA 6-1 6-1
2007 MOSCOW CARPET (I) S E. DEMENTIEVA 6-1 6-0
2008 BERLIN CLAY (O) F D. SAFINA 3-6 6-2 6-2


Safina leads 3-2. All her wins are on clay ... this doesn't look too good for dementieva but I think she'll win in 3 sets.

At first I was going to say Elena but their head to head is 3-2 in favor of Safina. They have played on clay 3 times and Safina has won them all. Including their most recent encounter in Berlin that Safina went on to win. So now I say Safina in 3.
