She played consistent tennis. Her opponents self-destructed though. Dinara Nicole

I am very happy for her. Now I hope she can perform in the final an control her nerves. If she wins she will be a multiple slam champ and will have validated herself as a Great Player.
If she loses she will have added another fine credential to her resume: Roland Garros Runner Up.
Either way she wins!
Go Sveta!

I am very happy for her. Hope she will win, because I know she has the game to do so...

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

Not so- Olga Morozova lost the French final in 1974 to none other than Chris Evert. She then went on to lose to Chris in the 1974 Wimbledon final as well. She was (and probably still is) a terrific tennis player.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Morozova was the first ever, then Dementieva when she beat Suarez, Mykina when she beat Capriati, Sharapova when she beat Davenport, next Kuznetsova when she beat Davenport then LenaD beating Capriati so technically lena was the last russian to reach a slam final and Morozova was first. What does FS final mean cause Svetlana isint the first Russian to do anything

Grassonkova.

Svetlana is not the most talented, she is one of the most manufactured players on the tour

thank you for mentioning this. after such an awful, heartbreaking year last year, a lot of people deemed her a headcase, and one who had a "fluke" US Open win. well, with this final appearance, and a consistent year so far, if svetlana wins this title, whether there are russians ahead of her in the rankings, i think she has to be considered the best russian at this point in time. i really want her to win this, not because i don't like justine, but i can't IMAGINE what this would mean to her, and what this would do for her ever-building confidence. best of luck to svetlana saturday

Serena Williams.

16-Time Grand Slam Champion.

2013 Titles: Brisbane, Sony Open (Miami), Family Circle Cup, Madrid, Rome, 16th SLAM-THE FRENCH OPEN, Bastad, Roger's Cup
