You're saying that Nadal shows Zero emotions on court. This could just have one logical explanation which would explain alot; we have a diffrent view on what "emotions" mean. Here, I'll just show you what I mean and at the same time show that Nadal shows big emotions on court. However, I agree that Federer shows very little emotions on court. He too however, shows a minor drop of excitement from time to time. But his calmness is impressive.
I didn't found any good proof of nadal's emotions Im afraid, I maybe just didn't look long enough. But here is an excellent example of on-court emoitions by ana: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPQCrUkekqQ
Also, I really don't agree that Alizé has more talent than Ana really. I belive Ana is the most talented girl on the tour. But of course Alizé has enormous talent. I still can't belive really that you don't think that Alize can't beat Dinara.
And you posted earlier that Alizé is too powerless? For her age, she is extremly powerful and dynamic. In a few years she will beat Safina with her left arm
Umm, Ana shows emotions on court: that fist pump, you know. In the youtube video you post. But it's not the emotions that Alize shows. She cries, she throws the racket, she is a wild girl who can not keep herself consistant during the match.
About the talent, maybe I'm wrong.
Let's state that Ana and Alize are equal talanted. Ana has more natural power, Alize has more natural movement, Ana has more natural forehand, Alize has more different swings with the shots etc.
Back to the Safina match. Yes, I still believe that she can not beat her on fast court.
I'd love to believe that she'll beat Safina in a few years...
At the moment I even can't undestand who is defending Alize more, you or me?

is that his left arm??
but by the years passed, he became more "neutral", not showing many emotions to the opponent.I think we can call it "maturity".
I think girls are more emotionate,there are some who can handle it quite easily and others who need to get matured.
I think alize belongs to the last category.She lives in a match,she's not a ghost.Of course she needs to control and dominate her emotions to become a great player.Even if she has lost to the very experienced safina.I think alize is a smart girl who learn from her errors. She improved a lot in her attitude if compared to last year.
Still so young,I think she can do great things if she can mature
Agree with you in a total.
I don't follow Nadal's career but believe me he doesn't changed very much. Comparing when he was 18 years old or so. Again, it is Federer who changed, when become older
Anyway, let we forget it. Because girls are no the same that boys.
Let's wait the draw of IW. It will release in the night of european time?
