Venus gunning for glory in Doha
Venus Williams faces Vera Zvonareva in the final of the Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha on Sunday. Both women finished top of their respective groups with perfect records so it is fitting that they meet in the final.
In the semi-finals Venus defeated world number one Jelena Jankovic and Zvonareva overcame fellow country woman Elena Dementieva.
Venus is the 4/11 favourite to win the final with Zvonareva available at 2/1. Rather surprisingly Venus has never even reached the final of this illustrious event so perhaps it is a testament to how seriously she has taken this year's event that she finds herself in the final. With that in mind it is virtually impossible to go against Venus in this end of season final.
The match is likely to go three sets and Venus can be backed at 11/4 to win by two sets to one.
