    It would be refreshing to see that aside from the fact that these 2 girls have been playing solidly. Yet they have to contend first with The Hand and The Shriek respectively.

    Well, at least Justine and Jelena are in. My 2 favorite WTA players.

    Ivanovic and Jankovic have always been two of my favorite players in the whole of the WTA. I always liked Jankovic scince she won Budapest in 04. And Ivanovic scince she played Serena at the Open. I think Jankovic wants some payback against Henin, so she'll be pushing herself. And Ivanovic is a much better clay courter than Shreikapova. This final is very likely.

    I'm a Jankovic fan too, but I don't know. She played pretty passively against Nicole today. Yeah, she won, but she seemed more to be playing not to lose today. That won't work against Henin, Ivanovic, or Sharapova. I like Justine too, but I'm really hoping that Jelena can pull this off. She is such a fun player to watch!

    great for serbia, i don't know about anywhere else. if they both made it, the final might be super nervy, even by wta standards. though anything would be better than the prospect of having to mute the tv on saturday.

    I agree. Mainly though I want to see Henin go down. :D

    I would like to see an all Serbian FINAL, its too late for an all Serbian finals. :) When one says "finals" I guess it must mean quarter-finals and semi-finals since there are multiples of those. There's only one Final.

    Go Serbs!

    It will be Maria vs Justine because both Serbs will choke when it matters.

    ...and Shreikapova will probably cheat again.

    I would not watch the final if it was between Henin and Sharapova. I hate both of these players especially Henin for the infamous hand incident. I am fairly confident that Sharapova will not make it to the final.
