Personally, I think it will be a Kim-Svetlana final. Davai, Sveta!

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Clijsters is the highest seed so no surprise if she wins the whole thing

The Russian's still got two of their aces left, also the talented Anna C, who has to face Svetlana... shame...
they should hold...
Let's see Elena do a Fed cup peat against Kim

I hope Anna wins, but i really don't care as long as Kuznetsova don't win. If Elena wins then i guess the cycle starts over and Nadia will win the next tournment.

He likes to pretend Sveta and Nadia are like the best players around, kinda like you with Nadia and Patty.

She played both matches injured, in case you didn't see them.. She just didn't want to withdraw..

Don't want to witness Lena choking again in another All-Russian final.

The non-slam tournaments, natch

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
