Safina v Clijsters

Clijsters has only lost 1 set in her 3 games since her comeback. All 3 matches were against very tough opposition so she has obviously done her preparation well.

Safina is probably the weakest number 1 we have had for a while and often struggles early on and has to fight her way back. She will be desperate not to lose today.

The market has them very close with Clijsters a slight favourite.

Very interesting match up and I quite fancy Clijsters to take it.

Perfect 15-40 or scalping match

Update: Not the fairytale comeback for Clijsters. Safina won 6-2, 7-5.  Still, the Belgian has shown that she will probably be back neaqr her best very soon.
