I think Maria Sharapova will win this time, because she played so consistent against Vera Douchevina today. Her groundstrokes were very good especially her forehand. The serve of Martina Hingis was not that good in Dubai as it was in Tokyo. So if Maria attacks the serve of Hingis, I think Maria will win in two close sets.
maria she served really well today and in the second set(didnt see the first) she was getting a lot of cheap points on her serve, more than in tokyo. to me it seems maria is nearing her top form(still not sure) and martina is getting tired even she admitted she had overdone her conditional training since tokyo. i saw martina play against mirza and although she played ok it wasnt near as good as against maria so if shes not on form i think maria might just edge the win. also maria said after her win that she doesnt like to lose 2 matches to the same player in a row, and was laughing and seemed to me to have sussed somthing about how to beat hingis or else realise how to beat her by feeling in top form.
