Serena Williams vs Ana Ivanovic
Both players had tight three-setters in SFs and both managed to win. After losing the first set 6:2, Williams manage to start playing better. She won second set 6;2 and built 5:2 lead in decider. She eventually close the match by result 2:6 6:2 6:4. For Ana, it looked like she will win in two sets, when she built 6:2 4:0 lead. But from then, Ana get nervous and lost second set 7:5. Sharapova built lead 4:2 in decider and even had two match points, but Ana showed how much she improved mentally and eventually won this match 6:2 5:7 7:5. This final will be fourth time these two met this year and all matches finished in 3 sets. I don’t expect anything less this time. This will be hard-hitting battle and Williams will edge Ana for her first title in Cincinnati.
Prediction: Serena in 3 tight sets
