what is the head to head? i know venus has beaten kim the last 2 times they have played so....going in i gave venus the big edge, and im sticking w/ it...but there matches both were similar, but it seems venus played the bigger points better than kim, thus why she won 6-4 in the second set...predictions anyone?

wta championships I would not put too much weight on. Venus should not have been on court that day

Well Serena is a better player than Venus right now and Kim has given her tight matches, so I expect the final to be an excellent match. Looking forward to it. Two of the best on the tour right now in battle. Should be great!

but you also have to take into consideration that venus and serena are not the same players. venus has a harder time against somone like mauresmo, than serena does, but then serena has a harder time against a capriati, than venus does, but with clijsters, we haven't seen serena play top notch tennis against her, she has been a bit off each time they have played recently, but w/ venus we have seen her play top notch tennis, and below par tennis against clijsters. but the way she is playing in this tournie, kim is going down, something like 6-3 6-3!
