Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

I absolutely loved this fine evening of tennis.

First justine keeping her streak alive and showing why she's #1 in the tiebreak keeping it together mentally.

Then maria showing why she's a champion and can win even when she's rusty and not playing that well.

Then a blockbuster of a match between ana and sveta. Ana playing godlike tennis for a set and a half and then a titanic battle with great rally's and a deserving finish.(except for that last game )

What a great start of the YEC it was today! Lets all hope all other days are just as good as this one. It would be great if justine,maria, ana and (serena/jelena) make the semi's. What a great atmosphere that would give.

Here's to day1 of the YEC!

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

Tell me more about it... I wish Danka won instead of Maria, but guess what I can take it.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

The last match was good. At least Sveta has tomorrow off. She needs to win out and it won't hurt if Dani beat a tired Ana tomorrow.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

I thought today was a good day in Madrid. I was very pleased that Ana pulled out a win in a tough match against Kuzzie and that Maria and Dani had a good competitive match.

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

Yea good start and its gonna get even better.

I was pleased Chaky showed in brief passages, just how good she can be.

Maria showed impressive fortitude in her match.

Ana v Sveta was a cracker.

Now if Jelena can beat the Belgian Bruiser tomorrow ......

Amazing???

Well one of my favs won (Masha), that's good, Kuzy and Ana had a competitive match, that's good too, but I wish it goes better and better.

21 and counting...

The Ana-Sveta match was indeed very nice for the most part.
Maria-Dani was ok but the wrong player won
The Justine-Chaky match was quite ugly from what I've seen

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

Tomorrow's matches don't excite me as much. The only one that should be any good is Justine vs. Jelena. The other two will either be blowouts (with Serena/Ana winning) or error fests.

Hoping Ana wins in straights so that Sveta knows she has to beat Masha to stay alive...

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

I didn't think today was anything special.
The first two matches were won by the overwhelming favorite, in straight sets no less.
The third match could've went either way - and the score showed that to be true.
All in all, a hohum day with expected results.

Bring on 'rena. Now there's some drama at least !

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

I wouldn't say it was an "amazing" day, but it was entertaining. The second set of the Henin-Chakvetadze match was great, as was the entire Ivanovic-Kuznetsova showdown. However, the Hantuchova-Sharapova match was embarassing.

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

All three matches were strong. No one was moping with no one.
From these six who played I think Henin and Maria has the best shot to the semis. I can't see Masha not winning one more match. I hope the shoulder will keep up, though. She owns CBETA and Ana is too slow minded IMO.

Re: Amazing first day at YEC! Don't you agree?

Amazing day? I'm glad I watched some practise instead of see Anna lose. The results speak for themself


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova
