wohoo Nastya

Even if you don't get a top 16 seed in Wimby, we're sure you'll crack things up there!

Udachi in the final against Dokic

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

Here is is a match report from my cyber-friend, sid:

"Myskina v Pratt

This was the better game of the two semis. Myskina was very solid off the ground, especially the backhand. Her forehand was a bit of a slapshot IMO - she seemed to hit it quite late a lot of the time. I was also impressed with her serve. She got quite a few aces with a big serve down the T. Pratt had more idea of how to play on grass, slicing and coming to the net more often, but didn't have enough quality in general to impose that game. She did have quite a bit of success with the drop shot. Myskina would get to the ball but Pratt was there to put away the volley. There were some really long, and good, rallies in this match. I enjoyed it.

Myskina does have a nice pair of legs."

Nastya was always in control really, much more power and hit winners of both sides, and her 1st serve is much improved.

Nastya's biggest asset on the grass is her movement, speed and agility.
She hit some pretty impressive passing shots in set 2, thats when Nicole decided to come in more.

a woman behind me said how does she hit that hard, her arms are so skinny
timing is how

Good luck to my favs

First of all congratulations Anastasia for getting into the final

Second I'm working on a site for Anastasia and I'm wondering if any of you guys have some junior pics of her or her off court pics,etc. If you guys can contribute it would be greatly appreciated, you can either post them here or pm me.

Thanks in advance

Petr Korda had skinny arms too, but through great timing he could whack the daylights out of the ball. And he won a Slam.

Thanks Janie and TBE for the match reports.

People at AI said the same thing about Nastya's arms being so skinny yet she could hit so hard.

Nastya, I wanted you to win so bad. You had a great week and I am very proud of you.

You did fight though and didn't let her pound you.

Good luck at Wimbledon. DFS was a great start for this.

"Three double faults in a row from Myskina cost her a second break of serve in the first set, putting her down 1-5."

PLEASE don't become Anna, Stassy!

Very sad Nastya lost, she'll beat them all next time though
