Petrova is amazing

I just got finished watching the Capriati-Petrova match and I can not believe how well she played. Her serve and volleys are so much better than the other Russians and I think that might set her apart as her career moves forward. I believe that she will beat Zvonareva tomorrow, although I think that Zvonareva might frustrate Nadia a little more tomorrow because she can throw in some junk balls. Still Nadia should win.

Regardless, I'm pulling for Nadia after that performance. (and to get revenge for Vera beating Venus )

I agree ... Petrova was amazing today.
It was a great match (a prop for Jenn even though she didn't win)

Cappy summed it well after the match!


"I think she had a different strategy out there," Capriati said after the two-hour match. "She was not trying to make winners, just hitting her normal, flat shots. I think she added a lot of spin to her balls, so different than in Rome."

Wow Nadia was pretty scary out there today! Now I know why she beat Monica and all her other opponents so handedly! Now there's the matter if she can hold her nerves...

Nadia surprised moi with her vast improvement. She has made Jenny realized that Jen is stuck to the same level of her play...no improvements whatsoevahhhh.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Nadia had incredible depth on her shots. She kept driving Jen back from from the baseline. She also kept finding the sideline. Just "in the zone" as Pam said.

She beat Monica becouse Monica was injured and could barely move. A healthy Monica would beat Petrova even when playing as good as she did vs Capriati.
