Myskina Does it Again
Some people won't like me saying this. But a familiar pattern repeats itself. Myskina plays her guts out to eliminate her fellow Russians. Then as soon as she faces a top non-Russian player, she plays a half-hearted, unmotivated match and collapses.
A few days ago the threads were full of how Myskina is the only top Russian, she is the world beater and potential slam-winner. The others are all flukes and has-beens. I said then that I'd start to believe it when she won the title. As I expected, the old pattern recurred, and Myskina is blown away 6-1 6-1.
And if Nastya was tired, as some are saying, wasn't Lindsay tired after playing 3 weeks solid and reaching three finals. And she was injured too.
