Rematch of 2007 Tokyo Open final, but this final is a lot more important. I think some of us have forgotten there is still a match to be played at Dubai ;) Vee has beaten her before!

So who wins?

Venus in 2 sets, but she'll make it a nail-biter. Nothing's ever easy with Venus.

If Venus doesn't win I think my head might explode.

Razzano is obviously in good form, having beaten some top players, and she knows she can beat Venus, so it should be a tough match.

Venus is in good form too, her Serve percentage hasn't been great, but she has done quite well on serve anyway, from the baseline she looks solid, my only concern is her returns have been below her best this week, she has dumped a fair few returns in the net.

In the final Venus must keep everything solid, attack the net and keep the errors down, if she does that she is the superior player and should come through in straight sets.......... if she plays badly or below her best, who knows?

My main concern is that Venus doesn't come out thinking the match is a formality and play loose tennis, or even worse get tight and choke, we have seen that Venus can be vulnerable if opponents play above their station so to speak. (IE: Aussie open loss)

Well last time they played Venus was a lil' hampered movement wise causing her to make errors. If she keeps it clean she should win in straight sets. Plus their last match was a tier III final, a much different situation here in Dubai.

Virginie can definitely trouble Venus who didn't play that well today

But the match is in Venus' hands
I'll be very disappionted if she loses

Depends how Virginie serves, if she can keep up a high % of first serves she should be able to take a set or the match. She has playing extremely well this week and she is one of those players that can frustrate Venus because she is more of a tactician and knows which shot to hit at the right time. I believe she can win this if she goes out believing she can win this match.

Razzano beat here 2 TOP5 players in straight sets and also defeat one other former TOP5 player and in semifinal destroyed her opponent with 6-1 6-2 - and tomorrow will play against player which barely won today her SF match in TB of three setter and which is not TOP5 more than 5 years, and which she already beat in only final which they played before... but still odds on Razzano at bookmakers is 7.00 and on Venus 1.10 :eek:

Even at WTAW poll she has less than 50% votes (even less than 20% b/c poll is public :mad:)


Real Injustice! ;)

Would love to see Virginie win this, she is a much better player than her ranking when she gets her head together, but I reckon Venus will edge this out in 2 tough sets

Venus in two easy sets. 6-3, 6-2. It's been a while since (if she wins) she's held this many big titles...

The last two years have been a Williams renaissance, and it's culminating right now.

with all due respect to Virginie, who played some great tennis, I think her game is kinda predictable, and Venus won't have problems to read it, so Vee 6-4 6-1

i am more confident when Venus plays the top players than players like Razzanoexactly, but at least she knows Razzano's game.

the most nerve wracking is when she is playing some up and comer with nothing to lose for the first time. :o can we say Pironkova or Navarro.

kingbrh
Feb 21st, 2009, 03:48 PM
Razzano is playing surprisingly well here, but I'm not too happy about her antics so far....... really slowing Venus down on serve, and just as Venus has started to hit the ball OK and win a few baseline rallies Razzano has called for a trainer.....

Score is obviously 4-3 on serve.
