elena in straights. she's yet to have her good day and she'll want to prove who is the best russian.

think about it, if elena can rally past justine "i'm on fire" henin from 6-2, 5-2 down playing way below her level , then imagine what she can do when she's on. elena can win this.

Dementieva in 3.


(I hope she still has fight and energy left in her, after this almost 3 hour long match )

You know this is going to be either Maria in straight sets or Elena in a tough 3-setter.
Maria is such a good front-runner and Elena is so good at coming from behind. Could be interesting!

I voted Elena in three. I like how she has built up so much rythmn and match toughness.

However she needs to start quickly against Maria and hold her serve.

I would prefer her to play a little more aggressive too. It will be bash bash tennis, exactly what both girls like.

Good luck Elena

no i think elena will be too tired to win this match, shes had far too many 3 set matches in this tournie and i think will run out of gas, alsom maria leads the series 3-1 and the last time they played maria won in zurich in 2004 but even more impressively it went to 3 sets, so even if it does go to 3 sets i think elena will be too tired and maria will win especially if maria serves well and elena doesnt, but i am worried about this match. but we all know what dementievas like shell beat somone like kim in filderstadt and then lose in the next round, but well have to wait and see.

I would like to see Elena take the title, but I have a feeling it'll be a easy 2 set victory for Maria.
