Considering the fact that Elena has been playing well lately many, I included, expected her to pose a problem for Amelie. Actually, I expected the match to go either way. My guess is that Amelie exploited her Elena's serve. I don't know. I was expecting a competitive match.
Maybe she was wary of Amelie's eyes on her? (j/k).
Poor Elena I really wanted her to become the first Russian to take the title.
Go Ai! Go Shinobu! Go Rita! Go Monica! Go Serena! Go Kim! Go Amelie! Go Lindsay! Go Jenn! Go Jelena! Go Mary! Go Conchita! Go Amanda! Go Chanda! Go Elena D! Go Maggie! Go Amy! Go Adriana!
Players I sorely miss.
Dominique Van Roost, Martina Hingis, Gabriela Sabatini, Mary Joe-Ferenandez, Steffi Graf, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Anke Huber, Kimiko Date, Pam Shriver, Naoko Sawamatsu, Brenda Schultz-McCarthy, Sandrine Testud and Julie Halard-Decugis.
Amelie!!!!! finally finding your form!!!
EVeryone says Elena played badly but Mauresmo played great tennis, kept her errors down, hit good winenrs and attacked Dementieva's backhand and secodn serve!!!! Smart tennis today Amelie!!!
