Nastya can win it, unless she plays Nadya in semis. Agasint super-motivated Nadya she'll probably lose..

Nastya just beat Nadya in Leipzig. 1 & 1 the last two sets. So you never know.
First they both have to get there. Russians can win Philly, Quebec, and Pattaya, if Lena B. plays. Then Fed Cup.

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!!

Nastya beat Weingartner 3 & 1. So Nastya and Nadya play tomorrow in the semi-finals.
Both players are in great form now. Should be a good match.

A fierce battle going on now between Nastya and Nadia.
This is what Russian tennis will be like for years to come - top players wanting to prove they are Russian #1.
And fighting to reach the YEC.

Both are probably going to LA anyway, but the match is not pretty. Errors. errors.

Nastya defeated Nadia 6-4, 4-6, 7-5.
The amount of competitive spirit that Nastya has shown since the start of Leipzig is awe inspiring.
Udachi Nastya!

Nastya is an amazing 9-0 this season when she reaches semifinals.

Was she hurting today? I heard she took an injury time-out. Hopefully she'll be prepared for the final.

It's totally plausible that Nastya can be #3 in the world coming out of Australia.

It was one of the longest contests of the season for both players, with the third seed Myskina experiencing cramping at several points in the match.

"I don't play long matches. I was really tired," Myskina said. "It will be hard to sleep."

Just remember Nastia, you're still unbeaten in finals this year [and Momo's performances in finals in 2003 were really very poor]

"Nastya doesn't play long matches" ???

she plays the most 3 set matches of anyone in top 100
she did that last yr and she's pretty much up the list this yr
come on Nastya, win today and you got a good shot of Top 5

Good luck to my favs

I think Nastia meant 'long matches' literally. It's true she plays a lot 3-setters but many of them are like 2,3 & 2. This one was 4, 4 and 7, plus a number of games with multiple deuces, 2+ hrs.

Nastya deserves tremendous credit. She beat Justine in Leipzig. She beat Amelie in Moscow. Now she plays Amelie again in Philadelphia. Top players in big events.
Nastya earns everything she gets. Udachi Nastya!!
