Cliff Drysdale heard that Lindsay just jammed her knee and will be okay to play in the final tomorrow.

Really bad officiating - wrong calls, missed calls both ways.

Lindsay was a better player for the most of the game and deserved to win.

Congrats Lindsay. Flawless 1st set.

However Elena was not even 100% and she still nearly got it close. Credit to Lindsay for hanging tough.

Bigger credit to Elena, who with an injury and with her 'bad' serve, still managed to keep Lindsay on edge and gave her, her toughest match since the BOW final.

Elena, get well soon. No Lindsay at the Olympics, keep building on this form

I found it funny that Elena had more winners than Lindsay. Some of her FHs at the end were

Stop this, please. Elena does not deserve any more credit for a good performance because she did so with a bad serve. Her serve is a weakness (mainly because the placement is pretty predictable - always to a righty's forehand), but when she's not double faulting, it's more effective than people realize. When you never know if a second serve will come in at 100 mph or 60 mph, it's tough to get any rhythm.

Besides that, a serve is something that can be fixed. I'm impressed with Elena achieving so much despite her weaknesses, and I'm sad that her serve motion became what it is due to that shoulder injury. But she's healthy, and has the ability to work on the serve. So she doesn't deserve 'credit' for being a good player despite her serve, as the serve is completely under her control.

For that matter, if you're going to give credit to players for playing well despite weaknesses, how about Lindsay being able to win despite her lack of speed? Or Amelie despite her lack of mental strength? Or Venus despite her nagging injuries? You see, you can do that for almost any player.

By the way, it was a good fight from Elena in the second set. She played very well at the beginning and end of the set, while Lindsay struggled with unforced errors. That line call did change the complexion of the match, but I think it was going to be a tough set regardless with no clear favorite to win. And seeing as both players got injured in that set, I think they both competed well to the very end.
