Both Ivanovic and Zvonareva were impressive in their semifinal matches, as 7th ranked Ana Ivanovic defeated Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2,6-3 and 6th ranked Vera Zvonareva defeated Victoria Azarenka 6-3,6-3. Ivanovic holds a 4-3 edge over Zvonareva all-time, but she has struggled this year, particularly with her serve. In fact, this will be the first final of the season for Ivanovic, who was ranked number one in the world after her French Open victory last year.

Zvonareva has been one of the more consistent players of the season, thus far and she has cruised through the tournament all the way to the final. Ivanovic, on the other had, has the potential to recapture the number one ranking, but she has played poorly since her French Open victory last year.
