Patty: "I dominated"

"I really dominated. I stuck with my tactics and kept my concentration," Schnyder said. "I tried to change speeds on her backhand. I served well. That helps a lot in exchanges."

it was true on this day, at a Tier 2 QF with Lena tired out and not particularly motivated. But when Lena brings her A game, like at the USO, she owns Patty. The level of tennis Patty has shown since 2003 is good enough to beat most of the lower ranked players, but not usually good enough to beat the top players when they are motivated.

Having said that, tomorrow should be a very interesting match.

patty played great, granted elena didnt play her best but she didnt play aweful

patty's problem against the other top players is in her head, she needs to believe she can win and keep the effort up
that's what she did last year and that equals top 10 ranking

patty rules

Why should Elena be tired? She lost early in Australia which gave her a lot of rest time to play 2 weeks (3 weeks counting next week). I'm sure she's fine,Patty just played very well.

Sounds like a player full of confidence

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Interesting that Elena is "tired" after 1 week on winning, and you are making excuses for her. But the Williams Sisters, Sharapova, or even Justine fans could never use this excuse for their favorite.

Schnyder played better than Lena, and nearly always won her own serve games with some ease, but she didn't exactly "dominate". Particularly as the second set was decided by a single break (the only break point of the set, BTW), much like an ATP match. "Dominating" is what Lena did to Hingis at Tokyo, or what Schnyder did to Nastya at the AO.

Kvitova * Garcia * Dodin * Robson

That's why the oscars suck. Yay Cannes.
(Btw, I also love that movie)

And I believe Lena was tired. Tokyo was tough, she played a lot of three-set matchs.

I think Connelly deserved an Oscar too. It's good to see an actress as pretty as her doing some tough roles - especially the ending
