Yeah, i was at the match and she was really sad at the end... She had some opportunities but Nadia was serving too strong and Dina made some unforced errors in tough moments... She was really angry at her but i think she keeps trying and fighting but that was simply not a good day... Mays not recover 100% from her battle against Pin... Good times will come soon Dina, don't worry !

Yeah the match was nice but it was kind of sad because Anna was crying at the end... Honnestly she was the one who plays the smartest all along the match, but she often missed the last shot... There were too some bad calls for the lines judges so honnestly i feel like Amélie is a bit lucky to have won that one... She has more experience than Anna and it helped a lot today, plus with the crowd all behind her... But it was a nice match to watch with really good shots.

Yeah, Anna is a smart player, she made it a match, and some great shotmaking, that's why I liked it. I mean those 6-0 6-1 snorefests in women's tennis are what ppl complain about. ;)
And well, luck is a part of it, we as Marat fans should be used to that. *noodle* ;) Amélie deserved it though, especially at home. Anna's time will come.

I feel Nadia vs Amélie could be a big one ! And Safarova is playing amazing, she could make a surprise against Henin.. I've seen her play against Vaidsova and she was incredible, really gifted player and smart and, this is a big plus, she's really nice with everybody, not a diva at all...

MariaV
02-09-2007, 10:43 PM
Oh yeah, Nadia vs Amélie should be great. :D

And it's good to have JuJu back. I feel sorry for her with all this divorce and family story, nice person or not.

Dina lost the last game blank on her serve... So the match is ended : 4-6, 3-6... Maybe she was tired from her first match which was very long... She doesn't play agressive enough but Bartoli played a big match, taking her chances and defending very well...

Dina lost against Nadia 6-3, 2-6, 4-6... Pity because she gave such a fight in the third, coming back from 1-4 to first 3-4 then losing her serve but she saved a MP at 3-5 and broke back... Then she was really close, up 40-15 on her serve but she lost all the next points, with no first serve in... Bad luck but great fight Dina, big wins are going to come back soon, you're on the way :)

I am not surprised...I saw her doubles match on Sunday vs. Clijsters/Maes, and she was doing all the work :rolls:. Actually it was like watching a singles match between her and kimmy :lol:. She must've gotten tired :awww:. Golovin was just happy to be there, working on the tan :lol:, she was smiling even after she hit an UE, which was every time she'd get to a ball. Dina was really intense on the other hand,and stared Tatiana down after she missed a volley, looked back at Dinara and smiled, it was priceless :haha:. She even threw her rackets once. Some lady in front of us turned to another who was txting or something and was like "aw, you just missed it, she threw her racket!" "who did?" "who else?!" :haha: Dina is a really good volleyer btw :eek: or was having a really good volleying day, but I was impressed, I had no idea :worship:.

Mischa - Dina again :scared:

well there's this fatigue injury, don't know how it's called in English... when you don't really twists or sprain anything but just suffer from repeated efforts.

Dina lost 6-2, 6-2... it was very windy and she kept arguing with the sky and everything... Jankovic played solid, making her running a lot and doing some great winners. Dina makes a lot of errors but she fought. Was leading 2-0 in the second set and start missing again... Jankovic had dealt a lot better with the tough conditions and Dina didn't seem in a good day at all...
Bad luck Dina but still a great week with a finals in a Tier I so congrats !

Jankovic Wins Family Circle Cup


CHARLESTON, SC, USA - One year ago she was in the midst of a 10-match losing streak and working her way down the rankings. It's funny how the wind can change direction at the drop of a hat, however; on an incredibly blistery Sunday afternoon in Charleston, Jelena Jankovic continued her awesome career turnaround and climb up the Top 10 with her third and biggest Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title at the Family Circle Cup.

Sunday's final was somewhat anticlimactic, considering Jankovic's marathon semifinal against an unseeded Venus Williams, which lasted for more than two-and-a-half hours, ending with the No.2-seeded Serb winning, 36 63 76(5). No.4 seed Dinara Safina provided little resistance in the windy final, going down in straight sets, 62 62.

"I had an awesome week here," Jankovic said. "Especially beating Venus. Today in the final it was a bit of a different story because of the weather. It was really windy and tough circumstances, but I gave my best, and I'm the champion. I'm so happy I won this title. It's my first Tier I title. It's a really amazing feeling."

Safina came out strong in the early stages of both sets, going up 2-1 in the first then 2-0 in the second, but every time Jankovic retaliated with a string of easy games, none of which even went to deuce. It was over in one hour, 11 minutes.

"It was not my day," Safina said. "I was struggling with the weather, but it was the same for her, so I think she was able to handle it better than me. I was giving away too many free points. With this weather you have to make someone play."

"She was having a difficult time, but I was also; it's not easy playing in this kind of weather, but there is nothing you can do about it," Jankovic added. "Especially when we were serving. I was just trying to stay focused and positive out there."

By virtue of reaching her second career Tier I final, having finished runner-up at Rome to Martina Hingis last year, Safina will return to the Top 10 on Monday, at No.10. She was No.10 for four weeks last year and three more in January. With a title here she could have risen to No.9, but she was still pleased with her week.

"I'm definitely happy," the Russian said. "I wouldn't have expected to reach the finals. If somebody told me I was going to be in the final I would shake his hand and say 'I'll give you half of my prize money.' Sometimes it just goes your way."
For Jankovic, the title win represents another giant step in her career turnaround. She was a first round loser at this event last season then fell out of the Top 30, but she was one of the hottest players of the year thereafter; she hasn't changed a thing in 2007, claiming Auckland in January, cracking the Top 10 soon after and, with her second title of the year here, moving up to No.7 on Monday.

"You see what I mean by the wind?" Jankovic joked. "Some things are meant to happen for a reason. Maybe if those things didn't happen I wouldn't be here. That period made me a lot stronger and now I realize some things and values. Now, I appreciate my results a little more; I appreciate things a lot more than before."

One of the things the 22-year-old will appreciate when she returns to defend her trophy next year is a banner of her among former champions at the event, which include tennis legends Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf and Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario, as well as a smattering of active players like Jennifer Capriati, Martina Hingis, Mary Pierce and Justine Henin.

"I'm the new poster girl," Jankovic said. "Next year, when I come here, hopefully I'll see my picture up there. It's a good feeling!"
