let's calculate: the tv ratings for that would be exactly......ZERO!!! Paola should never get to a slam semi-final, let alone a final. No, it will be Dementieva vs. Capriati, which still shouldn't happen. Cappy vs. Sharapova or Mauresmo would have made for interesting tv, though the best would have been Serena vs. JHH.

Well that doesn't change the fact that the players deserve to be there. Tv is business, Tennis is sport.

Elena hit 18 DFs in the first round and she is still leading in the all round DFs leaderboard...well, should we continue to bash her simply because she is able to reach SF of a Grand Slam by beating Davenport and Mauresmo?

I think it's great and it shows the 'dominance' the Russian players have lately, if Elena plays like her last two matches, she'll be a major threat to Paola and maybe to Jennifer -who I think will win against Anastasia, but you never know, looking at the draw

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

I'm sure the finalists, who ever they may be, will feel thoroughly guilty about the TV ratings.
