Don't say it, Van, don't … don't …

Ahhh! I can't hold back! Here it goes:

For some reason, I have some serious doubt about an all-Williams final happening!

There, I said it.

It's not like they're playing bad or anything—far from it, in fact. But Elena Dementieva's also been playing incredibly well and looks to have shaken whatever funk she was in. And while Dinara Safina hasn't exactly looked like the second coming of Venus, she's been fighting through, which is always good.

I wouldn't mind seeing an all-Williams final, and it is the call I made at the beginning of the tournament. But I just can't seem to shake those nagging thoughts.

I guess we'll see what happens by the end of the day!

UPDATE: So much for those doubts!

Van you were very close on one of them. Elena deserves BIG props for pushing ReRe and staying with her stroke for stroke - unheard of these days by anyone on the WTA especially the World No.1.

The Russian came out with a great attitude and came out to win. I'm hoping she carries this play into the NA hardcourt season. I think a rematch at the US Open could go a very different way.
