Venus Williams has quietly sneaked through the women's draw and had advanced to the final after a 6-3 6-0 demolition of Shahar Peer from Israel. Venus has just recently beaten Peer in Rome and I think that helped, since it seemed like Venus was well prepared at what will be thrown at her and she had an answer to pretty much anything that Peer can produce.
On the men's side, affter Federer and Nadal both emerged victorious in their 3-sets semi-finals. This sets up a rematch of last year's Madrid final and also marks the first Federer-Nadal in a year. Both players had suffered forms issue (very different time though), but given Federer's form righ tnow, I'd say that!
