Women's Doubles Final

Review of Semifinals

(1) Raymond/Stosur def. Daniilidou/Medina Garrigues 6-2 6-2
Eleni and Anabel succumbed to the pressure of playing in a Grand Slam semifinal and just were no show for the 'Raysur' duo. Raymond has been to the final here several times, but has never won the championships. Stosur has never been to the final here; win or lose come Sunday, this will be her best result.


(5) Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (4) Yan/Zheng 6-3 3-6 6-3
A very close match, with a single break in each set, as was expected from the showdown between the Rome titlists, the fifth-seeds, and the Berlin titlists, the fourth-seeds. Hantuchova/Sugiyama now lead this head-to-head 2-1, and seem to have erased that painful loss at the US Open 2005. In fact, they seem to have outrun all their demons, and have gotten into a very confident zone. The past is the past, they're looking forward to the future. We know it'll have a slam final: will it be a win? An excellent result for the Chinese pair, but fan-favorites 'Hantuyama' snapped their winning streak (started in Berlin, continued in Rabat and here) and continue their own winning streak (Rome and here).

Who will win this final?

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

probably Lisa & Sam, but I would so love to see Dani & Ai win this

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
