It’s a good thing I don’t make a living prognosticating…I had the quarters of Dubai all wrong. In the match I am most happy to be wrong about, Jelena Jankovic beat Samantha Stosur 6-3 5-7 7-6 (4). It was a big win for Jelena, I really thought Samantha’s power would get the best of Jelena. However, I did say it depends, as always, on which Jelena shows up. Can she beat Wozniacki in the semis? That’s a tall order. I think Wozniacki is playing with something to prove, no matter what she might say. But as always, except against Kim Clijsters, I am pulling for Jelena!
