Hot news: Sexy final for Australian Open

Probably the hottest players on WTA Tour according to their huge fanbases, russian Maria Sharapova and serbian Ana Ivanovic will fight for the first Grand Slam title of 2008 in the Australian Open final. Sure this line-up will satisfy the organizers, tour responsibles, TV channels and fans as there will be a great expectation in a match featuring these beautiful and talented players. A dream final from the marketing point of view.
Sharapova is now the favorite if we look at her impressive previous results. She has demolished strong competitors such as Lindsay Davenport, world #1 Justine Henin and Jelena Jankovic, who didn't manage to take more than 4 games each. She's playing her best tennis ever.
On the other hand, Ivanovic made a great run too, without dropping a set until the semifinals, where she came back from a 6/0 2/0 down to Daniela Hantuchova to get her place in the final. She has improved her physical condition and movement a lot, but maybe she still lacks a bit of experience.
An exciting final we won't miss!
