Some comments of this match Eggy? I thought it would be easier

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!

Nastya ranking

I'm not very good at maths, but let's see:

Nastya's current ranking - 22
Points - 1164
Off this week: 32
Total: 1132

Earned:
Quarterfinals points: 37
Quality for beating Foretz and Stevenson - 4 +15 = 19
Total: 1188

If she beats Maleeva:
Semifinals points: 66
Quality for beating Foretz, Stevenson and Maleeva - 4+15+23
Total: 1240

Tatiana Panova - 21st - 1203 points
Off this week: 1
Earned this week: 1 (lost to Daniilidou in R2 after a bye in R1)

Magdalena Maleeva - 20th - 1213
Off this week: 0
Earned this week(so far): 37 + 8 + 2= 47
Total: 1260 - above Nastya, even if she loses

Tamarine Tanasugarn - 19th - 1224
Off this week: 22
Earned this week: 1
Total: 1203 - behind Nastya, if she wins

Patty Schnyder and Iroda Tulyaganova will be above Nastya anyways...

So probably it will be:
16 - Tulyaganova
17 - Schnyder
18 - Maleeva
19 - Myskina

I hope I'm right, hehe.

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

If Myskina wins semifinal against:

Nicole Pratt - 103+10+42+1132 - 1287
Anne Kremer - 103+23+42+1132 - 1300

She will be ranked close to 17, 16, it depends on Iroda and Schnyder Udachi!

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

Izzy ?? which baseball caps ??? there were lots in caps

Today Nastya started of slow on serve anyway even though she broke for 1-0.
she played a bad set but then began to hit deeper and harder in set 2, she had her left finger taped for blisters in set 2 (at *3-2)

Served better in sets 2/3, she had to fight and save BP at 2-2 in 3rd and after that it was plain sailing.

Most of the players that weren't playing were watching, and all hoping Nastya would win
Alinka, Magui, Asagoe, Ai, Els, Elena Tatarkova, some coaches of theirs.
Nastya got a really good round of cheers after she win


Nastya needs to beat Maggie tomorrow and on grass it favors her with her speed and movement.

then we can look to whatever can unfold on Saturday.

Best wishes Nastya on Friday

Good luck to my favs

I'm thinking you were the 5'7ish dark guy who walked past with a programme covered in autographs and gave me a knowing look. Please tell me if I'm wrong...

Congrats to Nastya today, glad she started playing better as she went along. Good luck against Maggie.

Thanks TBE and also for the match info. I do remember her talking to herself in her match with Alina.

Great win for her today. Same as AI with Stevenson taking first set and then Nastya playing wonderful in 2 and 3.

Keep winning Nastya!!!

In the Jul/Aug Tennis magazine, they have a section called On The Move and they featured Nastya. It says....

"Fans could be forgiven for having had high expectations for Anastasia Myskina. After all, in 1999, just three days after her 18th birthday, the youngster from Moscow won the title in Palermo in only her second Sanex WTA event. Though she has yet to win a second singles title, she finally seems to be making her move after two years of hovering near the Top 50. This year she's advanced to the quarterfinals in four events and taken sets from Jennifer Capriati and Venus Williams. Along the way she also reached a career-high No. 29 in April."

She is wearing a blue top/blue skirt outfit in the pic.

Ironically, it has an article on Alex Stevenson on fitness and health.

YES!!!!!

7-6 in the third over Maggie -- this is the very type of match that Nastya was losing earlier in the year! And now she's into the semis -- see what a good influence our Eggy is?

Nastya pulled if off again, a very slow start, played really bad sprayed balls all over, had bad calls, slowly she turned things around

now i can look forward to tomorrow and the semis

Go Nastya and make the final baby
will be tough vs a grass court player but i'm sure Nastya has one or two tricks up her sleeve (she doesn't have any )

Good luck to my favs

Okay! She's into the final, and today she managed to take care of business in straight sets. Well done!

JUST ONE MORE MATCH, ANASTASIA! There is NO reason not to take this title!

Incredible, even making the final does not put her at #18. She is still #19 and will be seeded #17 at Wimbledon unless she beats Dokic or someone withdraws.
