Nastya like her good friend Elena Dementieva, has to play a thick chick today. Elena plays Jennifer Capriati while Nastya plays Mary Pierce. While Capriati can run and cover the court as well as Elena, Pierce is much slower than the quick Myskina. I think Nastya will use her superior mobilty to her advantage and beat the powerful Pierce in 3 sets.

Udachi Anastasia!

The rain came at a bad time last night

Nastya was leading 4-2, Mary seemed out of sorts

She had 3-0 but let the lead slip a little. She had a point for 4-1 which would've made it 5-1 a game later but she's still in front

Hopefully Pierce will still be uncomfortable today. I don't think she likes the rain. Then again, there might be no play at all today

One of the highlights of me visiting US Open this year was observing one of Nastya's fans over there.

That was a Russian guy with Russian flag, who was shouting things in Russian all the time. When she would miss he would shout:"Ничего, всё нормально" ( It's nothing, everything is OK ), if she would make a shot, he would shout :"Красавица!" ( "You are a beauty" ). The best one came when Nastya reached a breakpoint against MASL, when he shouted : "Давай, души её" ( "Com'n, strangle her" ). At the end he asked someone around to take a pic of him and Nastya, refusing to concede that Nastya would not go all the way to opposite side of the court just to see him. But when he realised , that Nastya would only sign autographs on player's side, without any hesitation he jumped on court ( it was on Grandstand ) and ran to Nastya, posed next to her, and the pics were taken. Of course, the next very second he was taken by security and we wouldn't see him again.

If not the encouragement in Russian, I would suspect it might have been JollyRoger

he was drunk in both Nastya's matches (especially against ASZ) and disruptive... honestly, fans around him didn't appreciate his behaviour at all (even Nastya's fans).

he also looked like he could use a bath or a shower.

I don't think Natsya would like that kind of behavior either.

Nastya won the first set from Pierce, 7-6 (2).
They're on court 4 and it's 10 PM.
Udachi Nastya!

Edit: It's raining again. Nastya's up 2-0 in the second.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Strange match. Nastya started nervously netting few easy short balls in first three games. Then she steadied herself and was in total control, few points were absolutely brilliant. Mary doesn't have much to offer though. She is more powerful than Nastya, but she is not overpowering her. And she is much less mobile and consistent. Anything that drops more than 4-5 meters from her, she would not even try to chase. Nastya cruised through the tiebreak, and after that Mary asked for medical timeout and left the court for, like 20 minutes. I even thought that maybe that timeout required a surgery or something. After Mary was back, nothing really changed, Nastya was in total control. If it wasn't for long break, she would probably have finished it today. The way it looked though, I am not worried much, unless she has a big letdown, it should take another 6-7 games to finish.

Nastya played pretty well, she is definitely improving, and this could be good news.

Not sure. It was on court 4, not Grandstand. And it means "no chanses" for russians fans with tv sets but without flags .
Yesterday the best tape was Marat-Pete 2000. Marat was great in the 2 game of the 2 set.
