How To Play

Playing PYW [Pick-Your-Winner] is simple, for each match proposed, just vote for the player you like best. Each vote will count as one game. You may only vote once, unless the "Vote again" is activated (after a minimum of 24 hours following the first vote)

As this tournament is a Grand Slam, there is no tie-break in the last set


Final presentation

The 8th seed and PYW World number 1 will take on unseeded and PYW world number 5 in the final of the first Grand Slam of the year. Both players came in with a perfect record in 2014. Jankovic, having won both Premier events in Brisbane & Sydney, is currently on a winning streak of 16 matches, while her opponent has won her tune-up event in Auckland and is currently on a winning streak of 11 matches. In addition to the pression of winning a Grand Slam title, the winner of this match will go back home with the PYW World Number 1 ranking.

Jankovic & Williams faced each other only once in this tournament, back in the inaugural event of 2005 when Venus Williams prevailed in the fourth round of the tournament. Since then, both players have shined down under, Venus finishing runner-up in 2009, while Jankovic scored two back-to-back semi-finals in 2007 and 2008.

Jankovic's road to the final was quite an easy one as she hasn't faced any seed in the tournament and has so far lost only 1 set, in her quarter final match against Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

Venus Williams's road was a bit harder as she faced 4 seeds so far, sarting the tournament by a complete destroy of 22nd Seed Makarova, then winning easily her next two round. She then had to battle in 3 sets for her last three matches against the 26, 28 and 30th seeds respectively.

Venus Williams USA vs Jelena Jankovic SRB [8] |

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Not sure if Venus' Srjogen syndrome will affect her against JJ?
