Congrats to Nastya on her win today, that was *really* impressive.

I hope she can win this, and then have plenty of confidence going into Wimbly.

I did not expect Anastasia to beat Hantuchova with such a one-sided scoreline! Good stuff!
I hope she takes the title now! #15 in the world.... hard to imagine she nearly dropped out of the top 100 at one point last year!

Wow, thanks for the report, Eggy!
I didn't know till now if it was Good Stassy or Bad Daniela that caused today's outcome. I am SSOOOOOOO happy to hear that it was Amazing Anastasia! I also love the way she closed it out without any hiccups! She has come so far in the last few weeks.

But of course, we knew all along that she could, and would.

Vanity ..... she dropped to 119 just before US Open last year
but that was mainly due to having to regroup after 4 months off after surgery and it took her until June.
but she really made her move from New Haven onwards

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

I finally saw Anastasia play on tv!
I saw everything that Eggy said.
But my favorite thing about it was Anastasia's unwavering focus through the whole match, and the way she cruised throught the game where she served for the match, without a sign of nerves.
If she can play that way in the final, it's hers.

eggy, i didn't know she dropped that far
I saw her hovering around the 100 mark once, but I guess I didn't notice her back then...
If she continues to play the way she did today, not only will she take the title but she could pull some surprises at wimby

She is getting higher rankings now, you are going to see her more often.. You are going to see how incredibly streaky she is..

I only saw the second set, and it was Nastya's brilliant play rather than Daniela's inadequecies that won the match.
Someone posted a thread in general messages saying that Ana was very lucky that Daniela didn't play well and that she doesn't have a hope against Rubin.
They also said that Ana is very lucky that her shots drop just inside the line. Well, if a player continues to hit just inside the line, at first sure it could be very lucky, but after a while surely its because they're very good at hitting the angles. The person who started the thread doesn't seem to think like that.
I'm still amazed by Nastya's backhand. It's great. I love it.

Anastasia herself said she was lucky on some of those shots -- this from the BBC site:

"Myskina admitted that luck was on her side against Hantuchova in Eastbourne.
'I played very well but I was also fortunate,' she said. 'A few points were marginal and the umpire said they were good.' "

Hit 'em just like that again tomorrow, Stassy, and you'll be fine!

Incidentally, I have put the poster "mboyle" on my Ignore List, and am so pleased that I won't have to read his ignorant posts about Stassy's looks any more!

Yeah I saw her after match interview. She said she was a bit lucky that her shots were inside the lines, but isn't every player lucky when that happens?
I think she was being polite.
I also agree that MBOYLE must be blind for calling Nastya ugly.

mboyle has been on my ignore list for about two months. He/she said something really uncouthe about someone (can't remember but it was BAD) and it only took that once. I saw his/her comments and they were cruel.

Please don't take me wrong but having been face to face with Nastya, she is very beautiful and this was after three sets. I was surprised she didn't have any sweat for all that. Maybe she is like Anna K. as one fan of hers said during her match, "She doesn't sweat, she glistens." We thought that was cute.

I also can picture her being polite about her play and her opponent.

I hope Nastya wins tomorrow.

Thank God for that Ignore List feature!

I think Anastasia is stunning, really exotic looking. And you could tell from her expression after the match how sweet a person she is. I am thrilled that she is coming into her own. I am also happy that she is a brunette, so she can escape the dreaded Anna-comparisons that plagued Elena D. from the moment she made herself known!

Elena D will always be compared to Anna because she is blonde. Anastasia and Lina are lucky in that respect, because they have darker hair.
Is Myskina's black or just very very very dark brown. I couldn't tell from the TV, because:
1. My TV's crap
2. The sun was shining on her, and one moment her hair was black and the next it was brown.
3. My TV's crap.
