Ekaterina Makarova VS Kim Clijsters match analysis

Ekaterina Makarova surprised everyone by getting so far into the tournament. However, it is not that hard to see why - her opponents were not from the very top of the game. Kim Clijsters is. She demolished her first two opponents in a straightforward fashion and I can see that repeating here. Cornet was a different story, but Clijsters made a huge number of stupid errors and she will want to regain confidence by playing well today. She is definitely the favourite for the title now and if she can save some energy once again, she will be in prime position for the victory. 18.5 games is not that much if you look at it, but also not that many. If she starts serving, one break in each set will do. If she starts receiving, she needs three breaks in total (if she does not get broken of course, but Makarova should not be able to do that). She is probably the most experienced player in the game today, while Makarova is young and without much experience in these conditions (huge crowd, center court, etc.). Kim should beat her comfortably.
