Stolen from MTF.

Well? I found it rather boring, especially on the women's side due to lack of quality, so no, I can't say I enjoyed it.

Not really. I think by this time next year I won't be watching tennis, well very rarely.

was a load of pants really. Justine peaked when needed, but even she played pants in the earlier stages. Maria struggled, Lindsay, Venus, Anastasia, amelie all pulled up short....no serena. Best match imo was the lindsay vs kim match!

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

Jelena Jankovic
Mary Pierce MARTINA HINGIS! Kim Clijsters Ana Ivanovic

it was HARRIBLE. so bad its gets the annoying accent horrible with an A instead on an O. my eyes hurt when they weren't tearing up from ugliness.

at the start of the tourney you looked at the players and there was a reason for all of them to do badly except justine and kim. when a major is won by who doesn't suck then it's not a good two weeks.

♥ Number ONE in my heart ♥
2004-2006 MYSKINA
2006-2011 JANKOVIC
2011- KVITOVA???


Honorable Mention: GOLOVIN, SAFAROVA, CIRSTEA

Oh, yes!
I mixed Enna's matches well with old videos of the 87, 88, 93, 95, 96 & 99 finals!

Bits of it. It was great to see Justine win, and it's always fun when kids like Sesil and Ana have Slam breakthoughs. Most of my other favourites crashed out early, though, mostly when they had wide open draws waiting for them (I'm looking at you here, Ms Dementieva). And the quality...well It wasn't good to have it confirmed that only three women out of the whole of the WTA Tour have any degree of mental strength. And one of them wasn't here, and one of the others can't play on clay

Overall, it wasn't that great, quality-wise...

But I was really happy for Mary making the final , and was fun to see Lindsay pull out some tough matches on the clay.

The only good match for me was the Mauresmo-Ana match. So no, this year wasn't enjoyable.

Don't cry GoDominique, Monica will come back eventually and you'll rediscover the joy .

Then you can spend all your time here and stop even having to bother with MTF .
