Obligatory Poll! Why do you like Myskina?
So Anastasia Myskina manages to battle her way past Shinobu Asagoe despite injuring herself quite badly.
They taped up her leg and on she went to win the match. Clearly when she's not throwing her hands up in disgust and talking to herself she's a very good tennis player. But she's also plays well when she is going into full histrionics.
But anyway, the question is, why do you like Myskina?
For me, it's the way you always get your moneys worth with her. She seems to fight a full scale battle against herself every game, when the chips are down she can play brilliantly, thumping the ball to the line with each shot and chasing down balls with great speed.
But then other times she loses the battle and plays like a turkey, with an unforced error here and a double fault there.
She's had a hard time lately and I hope she gets through it and becomes the grand slam winner she once was.
She strikes me as a bit of a headcase, and is great to watch because of it. Like was posted in that other thread, she's a great fighter.
1st round against Bohmova 5/7-7/6-6/4 (being 7/5-4/1 down)
3rd round against Jankovic 6/0-5/7-10/8 (being 5/1 down in the third)
4th round against Dementieva 1/6-7/6-7/5 (being 6/1-3/0 and 2 MP down)
And now she battles injury to fend off Asagoe. Feel the love!
