Good luck in the Superfinal, Natalia! 
 
We have usual suspects in the field, but, IMHO, your arch-nemesis is Daria. :-) 
 
Ubiennykh vs Gunina is interesting too. I have no doubts in the result, but it will be interesting to watch.  
 
P.S.  
I think the best 'outside' bet for SF is 'Will Nadezhda and Tatiana play a new variation in their mutual encounter' :)
