Nastya didn't do herself justice out there, she served pretty bad today and was always on the backfoot, also Jelena didn't miss either which added pressure. Jelena's drop shots were working good for her.

Nastya did 3 DF in a row to get broke for 1-5 in 1st.
Although she did break back another DF on set pt cost her 1st.

started of 2nd in a good way with good deep shots and even did some of her own dropshots to give some of her own medicine back, Nastya played a bad 3rd game and got broke but broke again in 5th and had a chance for 4-2 but didn't capitilise.
3-4 down got broke again, Jelena serving for match was 0-40 with a couple of good shots from Nastya, then Jelena hit a service winner, a dodgy Ace to make it 30-40 and another good serve and that was that.

Nastya still had a good week and is still upbeat for Eastbourne and Wimbledon

Good luck to my favs

Thanks for the report TBE and Nina Rus for the pic.

Are they laughing at the *trophy*? And Nastya doesn't get even a smaller one? Hmmph

Thanks for the report, Eggy. Too bad her serve deserted her, but all in all a great week for her. I'd love to see her go in to these events with Jelena's level determination to take the title. But that will come!

Question

Quote:
Myskina, although troubled by a shoulder injury, is enjoying the best year of her career but she still professes to a dislike of grass.

After an early exit from the French Open at Roland Garros, she put in hours of extra practice on the surface. Her dedication paid off in her performances this week, which included a straight-sets defeat of Nicole Pratt, of Australia, in the semi-finals.
EGGY!!!! What do you know about this shoulder injury?

I didn't see anything wrong with her all week, just in final she served bad due to nerves.
The only treatment she got on court was for blisters during Thursday's match.

She doesn't like grass all the much but she knows how to play on it and win on it.

Good luck to my favs

Strange, I wonder where the shoulder injury info came from? This article was on WTAFans.com, who said it was from Time.com or some such site.

I've just seen the Dokic-Myskina match on re-run on Sky Sports and I was suprised how fast Ana is when she's moving round court. And her backhand is great. However her serve let her down.
Also, didn't anyone think her 'skirt' was a bit strange. It was very short (nothing unusual there) but it had slits in the sides that went up to her hips. With the amount of flesh she was showing, I don't know why she bothered to wear the skirt at all. And she showed her underwear quite a bit aswell. Bright blue knickers.

EGGY, you went to the final, right? You weren't wearing a pink T-shirt were you?

I didn't think it'd be you. But it looked like the stadium was almost empty, and the man in the pink shirt was taking a keen interest in Ana.
So I thought:
'EGGY will be there, the stadium looks almost empty and this man likes Ana very much.'
So I thought of you.

I like Ana's game (now I know what her game is actually like). Her backhand is very good and she moves well doesn't she.

Thanks for everything Eggy! It's a pity we don't have much pics of this tournament! Nastya is improving a lot!!!!! Udachi!!

Wimby's draw has been released, and finally she didn't get a lousy one

She's on the 3rd bracket
Seeded 18th

R1 - Eva Dyrberg - DEN
should have no trouble
R2 - Arn/Selyutina - GER/KAZ
easy as well
R3 - Serna/Grande/Mauresmo
the only one that I think that could really damage Nastya is Grande. Mauresmo, pfff I hope she faces Amelie - juicy bonus
R16 - Mary Pierce, Sandrine Testud, Zvereva and Nicole Pratt. Should pass by as well.
QTR - Now that's a Slam quarterfinal. Shouldn't be easy, of course.
Jennifer Capriati/Eleni Daniilidou.... or maybe: Alexandra Stevenson

That's enough now... lets see how things will go! She's got to win her R1 first of all, hehe

DAVAY NASTYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Nastya beat Schnyder?
WOW!!!!!
Well done Ana.
I like Patty, but she often doesn't do as well as she should. I think she's a bit too timid.

Who's Nastya play next?
