Actually, I found the match to be quite entertaining. Anytime Capriati gets her behind whipped on National Television it brings me enormous joy. Especially after seeing her running down balls, making great shots and pumping her fists as though she had won the whole thing. That energy should have been reserved for the third set when she found herself tightening up. I have always said, it's not over until the very last ball is struck!!!

I though it was entertaining, Mauresmo likes to mix it up, and I generally find that style of play to be entertaining.

I thought the match was OK, Capriati for my liking was too defensive, she didnt attack enough and let the whole thing get to her. There were too many errors and not enough good rallies for a quarter, KIM vs Capriati would have been a better match IMO.

Yeah, the fist she shook in front of Amelie at the net, when she broke her to go 6/5 and the gesture Stefano made was in poor taste. I gave Amelie big props for not giving up mentally.

Quality-wise it was scrappy and full of errors, but very tense. I didnt get up until it was over!

They are back!
