Mauresmo`s loss puts the pressure on Jen...

I am definately happy, Mauresmo lost, not for her, I think it makes things easier for Jen BUT...

...Jen now is the favorite to take the title and that is not what I wanted. Jen won their last encounters with all three, Myskina, Dementieva and Suarez pretty easily.

IMO, the media will concentrate on her now. Hope, she can stand that pressure and take her fourth Grand Slam title...

I agree Alex, I hope so as well. Jen has dealt with tennis pressure right from Round One, lets hope she puts all the media hype behind her as well..

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

I don't think there's a lot of pressure on Jen. She wasn't favored to win from the start, and at this point I doubt they will favor her. Its anybody's game now.

Even after the US Open debacle...All the chokes...

I think Jen has learned from them. How many 3 setters she has won in the past few weeks? And over top players. I really hope Jen learned from the past, and I think her experience coupled with her confidence will help her.

I don't think Jen will be any more nervous than her opponents. But of course, anything can happen!!!!!

My only request: please, is there anybody that can say to this Pam Shriver to not say that Jen is going to win?

Jennifer is really learning how to handle the nerves and pressure. She will still play one match at a time and just focus on the task at hand. This is an exciting French Open. 3 players that have never been in a G.S final and a 3 time G.S champion.
No Serena, No Venus, No Kim, No Justine. Who would have thought?

I think jen should just keep going like she has done in the past week. she has been very focused, very disciplined and i think it has helped her a lot. now she just has to concentrate on her semi, and not think too far ahead. Go jen! I love you

Jen can handle pressure imo. USO 2003 was part (self imposed as opposed to media)pressure, part complacency. Jen is a warrior. If she DOESN'T win this title, it won't be because of pressure.
