SF: (2)Agnes Szavay 6-3 7-6
F: (1)Jelena Jankovic ???

Head-to-head

Jankovic leads 1-0
Roland Garros F
Jankovic wins 7-6 6-4

Preview

This is the second time that both players meet each other in a final, first time at the glorous grand slam Roland Garros, and this time at the first US Open Series final, they definitely know each other very well, and i am sure that this will be another great final as both players are in good form!!

Jelena Jankovic, nothing to say about her, she is world number one and she has already win 3 titles, the most at the tour!! But she actually has had some troubles in this tournament, her first round against Alize Cornet was a truly tough match, Jelena even faced some match points from her opponent in the final set, but our number one showed her mental tough there and for sure she really wants this title!! But is the tough Jelena tired after playing so many three-setters?? And will Jelena be able to win her fourth title??

I think it will be pretty hard for her, as local favourite and Eastbourne champion Ashley Harkleroad has all the advantages against her, she is back on her favourite surface and the audience will always support her. But the most important factor is her match-performence, however she is still better, she haven't even lost a set in this tournament so far, and the opponents she defeated are all good form players, like Peer and the new YEC qualifer Szavay, also the fan favourite Sharapova, so will Jelena be added to this list?? And will Ashley made the local residents happy?? Watch out the final at 9:30pm(Perth time) to find out the solutions of all these questions!!

Ranings projection

This is probarly the most important thing that Jelena and Ashley wants to know!!

If Jelena won the tournament, Jelena will be ranked #1, and Ashley will be ranked #7!!
If Ashley won the tournament, Ashley will still be ranked #7, and Jelena will still be ranked #1!!

So anyway, both players will stay at this rank wherever who wins this!!
Jelena will still be #1 and Ashley will be back to top 8 again

BTW, good luck to you two!!
