absences of the former number ones Venus and Serena Williams of the USA and Kim Clijsters of Belgium to take several WTA Tour titles.
Last year Wozniacki won six WTA Tour titles before winning again in Dubai in February. However
Wozniacki is 0-8 lifetime versus Williams, Williams and Clijsters. To be fair, the Williams sisters have been more absent than present on the WTA Tour in the last 52 weeks. Clijsters, Williams and Williams have only played a combined total of four singles tournaments as of the present date this year.
However Clijsters defeated Wozniacki in November in the finals of the WTA Tour Championships.
Head to head, Wozniacki leads Bartoli 4-2. Bartoli, who dropped the pairís last encounter 6-1, 6-1 earlier this year at Doha, will need to deliver aggressive power baseline tennis while maintaining control of her unforced errors for any chance of an upset.
Top ranked Nadal leads his finalist competitor Djokovic 16-7 head to head and the Spaniard has only dropped one set in Indian Wells. Djokovic scored a major upset in the semifinals, knocking off Roger Federer of Switzerland in three sets to reclaim the ATP Tour number two world ranking next week.
But the Serbian should have an even tougher time facing the solid and overpowering groundstrokes of Nadal in todayís final round match. Last year Nadal took the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open titles and looks set to bite into yet another championship trophy.
