The semis are only tomorrow, still I am already nervous as hell.

What's the matter with me? I have a bad case of tennis fever. I just can't concentrate on my work today.
I can't wait until the semis of tomorrow. I already feel that if there would be no Belgian in the final, I will have a bad case of post-semi final depression (remember the Australian Open 2003).
Is there any cure for tennis-itis???

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

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

I am sure there will be atleast one Belgian in the final and hopefully that
will be Kim Clijsters. For Justine, she is on the wrong side of the net
particularly during grandslam event.

I stopped so much that I can even sit out an exciting tennis match without feeling the urge.

Its funny...back in the days of Julie HD I have to say I never really enjoyed watching her play, it was all too nerve racking, too agonizing...I would spent any telelvised match pacing up and down, chewing on my nails, using every supersition there was to try to give her the edge!

But what Id do to have those days back!

So my advice is to relish every moment...

I guess my fave active player is Henin, so I hope she goes and wins it all. Gonna be so tough though...

Great words Chris! I guess we can all be happy our favs are still playing. And those of you whose favs have made the semis still have the enjoyable experience of watching some great tennis!

Hope all semifinalists give great fight and may the best woman win!

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

You are so right, it's great to know this excitement. I realize that I am a priviliged witness to a historical period in Belgian tennis.

So am I, i want Serena to win so badly but i'm worried that she will lose to Justine. I think thats highly probable considering the way they've both played but i hope Rena can pull it out somehow.
But try not to think about it and just try to look forward to some great matches.

I'm excited about tomorrow, as well. As long as Serena wins, I'll be ok. Her opponent doesn't matter to me but if Nadia makes the final, it'll be a great story. If Kim makes it and loses, they'll say she's incapable of winning it and that would suck!
