I wonder if Nastya knows how to hit passing shots.That seems to becoming a forgotten skill at WTA Tour. Bedanova played serve and volley for all match. I haven't seen the set two that Likhovtseva won, but in the sets 1 and 3 Alyona looked pretty clueless about how to pass Daja at net. That's strange for a doubles player of her class. On the other hand, Daja is very good at net. Nastya has to practice passing shots tomorrow.
"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."
Nastya's third final of the year -- not bad! She has a good chance to win the title, too. Eleni almost collapsed with heat exhaustion today. I think Nastya is in better shape. And she may be fed up with losing in finals!
