Always bet on black!

Mary's match was one of the best final sets of tennis I've ever seen. Both her and Shaughnessy were amazing.

To come back after being broken at 5-4 up, losing three match points in the next game and going 0-30 down after that was unbelievable!!

Mary was only just standing at the end, she was exhausted. I think the whole of the French team will be preying for Amelie to close it out tomorrow because I don't think Mary has any energy left at all.

I think its safe to say that Mary is most definately BACK!

I'm really happy that Mary won but her inability to close out tight matches is rather worrying. She lost a lead against Myskina and nearly lost a lead here after being 5-3 up in the 3rd, and wasting 4 mps. I'm not sure how she played, but Shaughnessy also had a tight match against Flipkens and lost to Callens so she musnt be playing that well.
France have surely won the Cup now I think, unless Meghann manages to upset Mauresmo, which is unlikely.

Yeah, this is the second match that Mary nearly blows while serving for it....the first time she didnīt get away with it, but this time she managed to hold on.

Makes winning the Fed Cup easier for France now, because if she had lost itīd become MUCH MUCH more difficult.

Always bet on black!
