I believe in Miss Jankovic.
Maria seems like she had rhythm problems today.

Henpova
Aug 21st, 2011, 03:14 AM
I think JJ will just get to much back in play...but they have been playing each other since kids so they know how to play one another. So it should be close and tight.

I will be happy with both...

In terms of match-up, it's clear though that Maria has the advantage. H2H 5-1 I think for Maria with JJ's only win on grass :oh:

Sharapova 7-5, 6-3

Probably JJ. I think she will get in Masha's head and overall play really well.
But I'm hoping Masha though...

THIS!!!:worship:

My dream final:inlove:

JJ played great today, when she isn't afraid of BH DTL then it means sth. ;)
Masha was bad today, but in other matches she was very good...I think she had off day today...because the level of 1st set was the worst since Australia.

Masha has advantage in H2H, but wouldn't be surprised if Jelena wins.
I hope for a good match. :D

For Jelena it's already great result...but I feel Masha needs it more to be confident at USO.
Masha in 3.

Jankovic is already real winner of this tournament reaching Premier-5 final after such big slump in last about 15 months - no matter what will happen tomorrow!

I still don't get why people would pick Masha to lose in 3. She is 100% this year in three setters.

I hope Masha wins this one, and I think it's gonna be in three

Jankovic played the better semifinal, but I'll go with Maria in three.

Maria in 2, in straightforward fashion.

I'm not sure if Empress has anything that can bother Maria. Should be easy.

goldenlox
Aug 21st, 2011, 04:34 AM
I'll be surprised if Jankovic wins. She doesnt have a good serve and Maria will tee off on those 2nd serves.
Maria gives you a window to beat her, as everyone saw against Vera, but I dont see JJ in 2008 form just yet. More like a nice draw.

marineblue

I believe in JJ. She is an alter ego of Woz and her game could work with Maria because she is not exactly imune to making lots of errors. The Empress will grind her down.

I am SO looking forward to this match. I think Masha will take it, but I would be happy with either claiming the title. :hearts:

Henpova

In terms of match-up, it's clear though that Maria has the advantage. H2H 5-1 I think for Maria with JJ's only win on grass :oh:

Well the head to head is miss leading...it is really 1-1....three of Maria's wins where before JJ was a top player. Also the last time they played JJ retired so that really leave one win each when they where both top players.

Well, as long as Jelena doesn't run away in the middle of the first set again, or doesn't get completely thrashed, I'm happy. :)

WHY does everyone keep calling Jankovic, the Empress?

Also, I'd be stunned if Maria didn't win this final.

Because she is Empress!

Is there any reason why she is called that (some history behind it) or just something random?

^ coz of her costumes in 2008 if I remeber correctly. A red or yellow dress she wore in 2008 was the main reason.

Maria will win in a 3-setter that's even uglier than her match against Zvonareva.
