what a boring day.

I would be gutted if I had tickets for that day. But then again non of my favs are playing Berlin so the whole tournament would be pretty boring.

yes, indeed what a great day of tennis tomorrow

Quote:
19. 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”.

I attended Dubai and the quarterfinal session was:

Mauresmo - Kuznetsova
Henin-Hardenne - Schiavone
Hingis - Sharapova
Davenport - Kirilenko

A much better lineup for 2006. And a Tier II at that.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

All of those players will be playing at Berlin tomorrow except for Sharapova, Davenport and Schiavone

IMO
Li, Zheng, Petrova, Schnyder, Dementieva, Hantuchova, Groenefeld > Davenport, Sharapova, Schiavone
