Very interesting. Played only twice before against each other. Jelena won once and retired in the other one. Both were on Justine's favourite surface clay:

2002 Baush & Lomb Championships Justine W 6-2 4-1 Ret
2002 Betty Barclay Cup QF Jelena 6-7(3) 6-7(3)

Justine didn´t look all too well today against Nadia and both Jelena and Kim played at a higher level today...so if Jelena can play like she did today, she could be the second player to beat both Belgians no.1 and no.2 in less than a month! So much for the Belgian domination...

Yeah like Myskina in Leipzig, I think she has a very good shot at beating the Belgians back to back.

Allez Justine!

Goodluck Jelena, if she has the confidence then she can do it!

:bounce: I really hope she can win and if she plays like she did in her previous two matches I don't see a reason why she can't. Justine didn't make that much of an impression today (of course she's gonna be really motivated to get that nr1) and Jelenas confidence must be incredibly high so ...lets hope she pulls it out!! GO JELENA!!! :worship:

(wow, I've never been so happy for a player after just beating my fave; Kim and Justine already had a good year , I guess I want this for Jelena so she can end on a happy note after her terrible 2003 season)

justine should use her slice and chip to put a lot of serves back into play and should come into the net or force jelena in and most importantly, serve well and be aggressive. :D

you can tough out one more match JUJU! so you can have the #1 for one week (until Linz falls off) Dang, Kim hangs onto #1 forever despite justine winning two grand slams and now being in six straight finals. But this loss today may have sealed kim's fate even if justine loses tomorrow. she will be well rested for LA!

Jelena will win, I'm pretty sure.

Yeah, Justine is gonna lose tomorrow,
like she lost against Krasnoroutskaya at Toronto (who beat Kim in a previous round) !

You simply don't know how Justine and Jelena are gonna play tomorrow!
Anyway, congrats to Justine and Jelena!

Justine no.1 with lots of titles this year already, losing one won't hurt her at all. That's why I will be rooting for jelena, after what she has been through this year, I hope she makes her comeback in style, beating the world no.1&2.
The tour needs more than one exciting quarter final at the OZ. A confident Dokic, revived Dementieva, and if Moma can get it together, seles recover fully and same for the sisters and Daniela too, 2004 will be great.
Go Dokic, claw your way back to the top 10. Boy has she amassed quality points in this tourny! :bounce:

The one with the fresher legs and hungriest will win.

This is your chance, Jelena! Take it!! Pull a Myskina. :bounce:

I predict that if Justine loses the first set, she'll lose. If not, this final could easily go the distance, and if so, Justine may indeed run out of gas. :(

:bounce: :bounce:GO JUSTINE!!! :bounce: :bounce:

Dig it out, Baby, dig it out! :mad: ;)

I am soo happy for Jelena!! But I want Justine to win just because she deserves the #1 ranking.

But I hope Jelena wins does great the rest of the season and hopefully wins a tournament!!! :bounce:

Let's go Justine!!! Even if she is only number 1 for one week, I will be appreciative of it! Let's go Justine!!!!! You can do it.

But Jelena will prove to be a stubborn opponent. Jelena has had a good week, but I hope she does not think that this is all she would have to do to get up the rankings.

Justine is just a wreck! the poor girl is running on fumes, she really needs to rest after this week. although, dokic will have a myskina leipzig week imo. if dokic is going to make a splash, this is her week to do it.

I also believe that the reigning French and US Open Champion will have something left for tomorrow's final;) ALLEZ JUJU!! Another Tier 1 tomorrow!!!

I really appreciate what Jelena did!
But I really want Justine to become number1, even if it's just for one week.
So i'll be rooting for Justine, and hoping that Dokic continues playing this way in the next tournies !

Justine has seemed tired this tournament, so Jelena has a great chance of taking this title. But you know Justine is gonna be extra determined to win so that she can get the #1 ranking. And Jelena will be very determined to capture another title. Lately its been a hard road for her and she has an opportunity to add another title now, she is gonna be really determined to win this. It shall be a very interesting match indeed!!!

I have a feeling that Jelena will win. After she defeated Stevenson in the 2nd round, she looked totally different.

Jelena used to be one of the most mentally toughest players out there. I think its all starting to come back and in addition to Justine's fatigue, Jelena will pull the upset.

However, I do believe that Justine will end the year as No. 1.

Jelena can win ! But will she? I don't think so ! Justine must really want to win 1 title since "long" : she's been in 2 consecutive finals! Now, it's time to win!
Anyway, Dokic has an advantage over Justine : with the year she's been having, she's a lot fresher ! (i'm joking)

Dokic has the skills to win and her mentally side is good now. However, Juju is far too strong.
