Big time congrats to Myskina

Just finished watching the Eastbourne final and all I can say is big time congrats to Myskina for her performance today.

She at times actually dominated Justine on the court and I didn't remember Anastassia having such penetrating groundstrokes before.

She was close to winning the match and despite that second set, she played some of the best tennis I think she has since 2004.

I have been critical about Myskina's overconfidence as a tennis player, but after seeing some of the stuff she pulled out today, I can only give her kudos and wish her the best of luck.

Glad to see her hopefully back on track.

i know i was shocked at how hard she was hitting the ball,she had henin on her backfoot many times.if she could beef up her serve some more,she could easily be top 4,and she was #2 with this serve so i mean she can do it now too.she has excellent movement,and even her volleys arent that bad .i think if she meets venus in the 4th round,it could potentially be a very high quality match

fair fucks to Myskina - I was really impressed today! She played some great stuff today and hopefully will have a good run at Wimbledon, I reckon she can cause serious trouble for Venus if they do meet.

She's a darkhorse for Wimbledon if she can play the way she did today.

She seems to play good tennis so rarely now. It is time for her to step it up and not be a one slam wonder.

With other Russians doing so well, Anastasia could have given up.
Instead, she came all the way back.
Watch out for her in the US this summer

Loved her attitude after the match. She seemed genuine and very pleased.

Didn´t she even hit more winners on the backhand than Justine? That´s really huge and normally totally not do-able.
