Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!

Mary had a +9 differential for winners-errors, but not good enough for Serena who had a +23 differential! 5 aces for Serena, 2 for Mary.

Mary

but Serena was out with a vengeance today ... obviously Serena is not going to let anybody stand in her way of getting her arms around the Hand in the final

I think Sprem and Petrova better watch out

Wow, they both played well! It's a pity ESPN isn't showing the early rounds.

I hope Mary gains some confidence from this loss. Even though she lost, she has to see that she played well. Her opponent was just too good today. Better luck next time, Mary!

Serena keep up that positive play! It will be interesting to see if there will be a Showdown in the final.

Mary played well, but clearly was not good enough.

I think it's pretty obvious these days that athleticism is of the utmost importance in the modern game. Lindsay and Mary are excellent strikers of the ball, can hit the ball as hard as anyone, and having big serves, but they can't move very well and that will hold them back for the rest of their careers against the top players. At least they got some Major wins in before mobility became a neccessity.

I hear drums in the distance. Temperature is rising. The nr 1 wasn't convincing. The former nr 1 was. The jungle is full of whispers "Impossible is nothing". The fight is near.

Rumble, young girls, rumble.

damn colonists
ignore their patronizing
tear off their blindfold
open their eyes
