Re: LAST ONE STANDING!! Winner takes it All.......
Hey Everyone! New week , new stories. I just wanna update you the results for the tournaments last week. 4th seed Nikolay Davydenko defeated Dominik Hrbaty , 6-1,6-2,6-2 to win the BNPParibas Masters in Paris, France. In Quebec, Canada , No. 2 seed Marion Bartoli beat Olga Poutchkova , 6-0,6-0 to win the Bell Challenge. And in Hasselt, Belgium. Kim Clijsters successfully defended her title by beating Kaia Kanepi in three set, 6-3,3-6,6-4. Well that concludes the tennis results for last week. The WTA Championship is finally here. Only the top eight players in the championship race are qualified for the tournament. Amelie Mauresmo, Maria Sharapova, Justine Henin Hardenne, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova, Kim Clijsters ,Elena Dementieva and the comeback kid for the year Martina Hingis. The eight players were divided in to 2 groups. And the top two finishers from each group will contest in the semifinals and whoever wins their semifinal match will compete for the top prize. So who do you think will win the YEC? Well it could be anybodies Championships , to be honest. I know a lot of you have your own favorites, I have my favorites. I know for a fact that Maria Sharapova is the clear favorite right now to win the Masters. But then again there's Amelie Mauresmo , who's the number one player right now and The defending champion. Kim Clijsters who just came with a win Hasselt and former winner (2002-03) is playing well again after missing few months on the tour because of the wrist injury she sustained in Canada. There's Justine Henin Hardenne, whose won 5 majors already but never the YEC. And always a threat on any surfaces she plays. Svetlana Kuznetsova, who has one Grand Slam title already under her belt would like to add this one in her resume. Nadia Petrova, Who had never passed beyond the Grand Slam Semis, reached 2 GS semifinal at Roland Garros , Would love to win this tournament to give her the confidence and drive to win a Grand Slam. I know it wont be long. And there's Elena Dementieva who's been twice a Grand Slam Finalist. Winning this tournament would be just great for her also. I mean, She deserves to win a big one. And this maybe the key for her to win a slam too in the future. And finally the comeback kid, Martina Hingis, 5 time Grand Slam Champion and a two time winner for this event. What can I say? It's nice to see her back ! I must say she's one asset to Women's tennis. After deciding to take a 3 year break from the tour to pursue other things in her life, She decided to comeback on the tour and give it another shot. For what reason? Only she knows. I know she's not done yet, I think We all knew. Besides She wasn't quite finish with tennis yet, after all she's only 26. In order for her to win this tournament , She has to have enough strategy to beat these girls. She knows it wont be easy but she just have to give her best. Well there you go tennis fans! There's my say about the players. I guess we all just have to wait and see till the tournament end. Who ever emerges as the champion? She deserves it! Regardless! I just hope everybody's give their 100 percent. Besides it's the last tournament of the season. May the Best Player Wins!! Good luck tennis fans!!! And Don't forget to support your players!!! Peace!
