Head to Head
S Williams leads 4-2
Williams has won their only meeting this year in straight sets at Toronto. Their previous match before that was a French Open Quarter Finals, which Stosur won in 3 sets.
Stosur is probably a surprise finalist here, beating 3 seeds, including 2nd seed, Zvonareva. She may be a bit tired after having 3 set matches in 3 of the last 4 matches, including yesterday. Williams has been unbeatable all tournament yet to drop a set and only playing in 1 tie breaker.
Conclusion - You'd have to be a brave person to bet against Williams winning here for a 4th time. She is definitely favourite and I think she will win in 2 sets here.
Today we will find out the results for these matches.
