Caroline Wozniacki To Face Svetlana Kuznetsova In 2011 Dubai Final


I am a bit down that Jelena Jankovic lost to Caroline Wozniacki 7-5 6-3 in the semifinal of the 2011 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship, but it was a very good tournament for Jelena. Also, I like Caroline, too…so I’m not terribly bummed, but I just like Jelena more. This loss stings a bit because Jelena was up 5-3 and 40-0 triple set point and could not convert. Had she won that first set…who knows? It was Caroline’s first win against Jelena, having lost four times previously.

Caroline will face Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova, who came back from breaks in both sets to beat Italy’s Flavia Pennetta 6-4 6-4. Although Caroline must be considered the favorite in the final, I give Svetlana a fighting chance. She has been playing well. In that marathon match with Francesca Schiavone at the Australian Open, Svetlana actually outplayed Francesca most of the points, but not the big points that she needed. Caroline should win, but I would not be shocked to see Svetlana pull the upset.
