Conchita beats Alexandra!!!

no - this is not 1995 - this is 2002 - and conchi is in a tier 1 semifinal again!! this thread goes out to all the haters who have been gagging for conchita to retire over the past 12 months. well hard luck peeps - she is here to stay!!!

supremeross - no-one can hear the fat lady sing - she has gone on a diet!!!

gallofa et al - hope this win means as much to you as it does to me!!

Wimbledon champion, Australian open runner up, French open runner up, US Open semi finalist, World no 2, Fed Cup darling, Italian Open queen, Berlin doyenne, Hilton Head heroine, Philadelphia Princess,...the beautiful, incomparable CONCHITA - A 1988 vintage - sweet, fruity and just gets better with age!

P.S - If Conchi ain't in the draw - go Monica!

And whats more; she played really well! Great news for the Spanish FedCup team as well, only a couple of weeks from the finals.

The only thing I'm slightly less pleased about is that Arantxa now cant catch her for Spanish #1, but never mind

I wasn't going to say anything but since the first shot has been fired and my named was DRAGGED into this post....

One semifinal appearance does not a resurgence make (ask Patty S.). Or are we forgetting that this is the same Conchita that got BOUNCED in the first round of a Tier IV, not once but TWICE this year! But with a miserable year like she has been having, as a fan you have to take your wins where you can.

Just as a note of interest, here a list of some notable players that Conchita has LOST to this year:

Kristina Brandi
Asa Svensson
Emilie Loit
Lilia Osterloh
Stephanie Foretz
Denisa Chladkove
Lisa Raymond (X2)
Anna Kournikova
Svetlana Kuznetsova

I'm sure this is a year that can't end soon enough for Conchita. Perhaps we should have the FAT LADY que up in both English and Spanish, so Conchita doesn't miss a word.

ross - players she has beat this week! myriam casanova, jennifer capriati, alex stevenson - i think that DOES mark a resurgence!
BTW - what does conchita actually have to achieve to get your approval? win this title? back in the top 10? serious question, just out of interest.

Conchita salvages something from this dismal year. Good for her. Hope she get to the final. Hantuchova ain't nothin'!

Coolconchita, please do not take my jabs at Conchita personally. I'm just poking fun. I have never been a fan of Conchita, but that doesn't mean she has no talent. Conchita has had an excellent career. I just look at players like Conchita, ASV and Michael Chang (and Michael Jordan for that fact) and shake my head. While I can appreciate their love for the sport and their accomplishments, I also think a player should know when to walk away from the sport, before the sport walks away from them. Conchita has nothing left to prove, but she should also know when to walk away (a la Graf, Courier, Novotna, etc.). And before the whole Conchita-brigade starts in with "Don't tell Conchita when to retire...yad, yad, yad... I'm sure Conchita knows her game is not where is use to be and the players are just getting younger, faster and stronger and the likelyhood of her making it back into the top 20 or top 10 or top 5 is between... well you get my point.

So to answer your question, in a word, nothing.

I dont know what your problem is with me , free, I haven't done anything to you. But you always take shots at me - you must be jealous. That is ok, I am worth it.

I dont care that Jen lost last week or this week. I dont know why you are bringing that up, it has nothing to do with anything.

I think its a good win for Conchi, so what? And yeah, Alex is just too inconsistent to be top 10. So, why do you try to start shit just because I have a comment that has nothing to do with you?

the first decent post i've ever seen from you with regards to conchi! congratulations!

just to respond, conchi fans were getting the 'she should retire' threads in 1997 (terrible year) and 1999 (even worse). if she had of retired then, we would never have seen her make 2 grandslam finals, and reach world no 3 again!! 2002 has been bad - no question, but this week suggests to me that yes, maybe she can't be in the semis week in week out, but she CAN still perform at this high level. Just ask Pete Sampras!
