Re: Italy Should Thank Its Lucky Stars They Beat China, Will Be Crushed By Momo,Tati &Co
I'm confused. Italy beat China fair and square. (Just so I can see it and comprehend it better I'm going to the type the rubbers for my self-clarification.)
Garbin def. Sun 64 26 63
Garbin def. Zhang 36 62 64
Pennetta def. Peng 06 75 30 ret.
Santangelo def. Sun 64 62
Santangelo/Vinci def. Sun/Sun 62 64
Garbin, Vinci, and Santangelo have all had good years. Pennetta's done well on clay, which I think is what this surface was. Schiavone's had an awful year, so I can see why they'd not pick her. Italian tennis is much more than Schiavone.
Mauresmo, Golovin, Dechy, Razzano, Bremond, they're all good players, and they probably will defeat Italy in the SF, but that doesn't mean Italy didn't deserve to get here.
