Myskina about her loss to Henin in Athens...

"I'll probably never be able to forget that defeat but this win should definitely help," she said. "It's been over a month now since the Olympics and time will also help me to heal my wounds."

I'm glad she's over it, but its still a painful match for me to think about, so i really don't know what it must be like for her

Still, this title proves she's back, looking forward to the YEC now...

just a quick reminder.. Anastasia was leading 5-1 in the third, before going down 6-8. That was a semi final match.

If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Yes that was the most heartbreaking loss I can remember following tennis. I`m glad that this win starts to put that dissapointment back in history a little bit.

Yeah, it was a weird loss, but you have to put it into perspective; it
wasn't just any player across the net that day. When it comes to the
battles of gut and will- the UberBoss is the strongest now when
she's feeling healthy. If it was Amelie across the net or even one
of the Sisters 2004 she would have won it at 5-1 in the third set.

Does it really matter who you lose against in a match like that The opportunity to win an olympic medal came around once every 4 years, she may not ever get that chance again. I don't think she was interested in 'who was across the net' do you

duh... why didn't she gut out a win against like garbin in roland garros? u'll have to agree that myskina herself messed up her own mind. not that justine played exceptionally or what...

She had a chance, but she was mentally broken when she lost to Molik for the bronze medal match

Nastya I suffered with you so much but you showed today that you have got over it.
I know there are things that could be never returned, but in compensation the life always gives many other opportunities and you will take them

Did you read my post? When JHH is healthy she's the stronger
of gut and will. She was not 100% at RG- I thought we all
understood this by now? Whatever. If you think JHH sucks
that's not my problem, and I'm not going to defend my post
since- we're suppose to be talking about Myskina here.

When JHH wants to win- nothing will stop her- ok!
