Did we expect to see anything less from Fran?

She's gutsy. She's never say die. And showing she's one hell of a tactical player. Even if she doesn't win this match, she's going to give it her absolute all. Respect.

P.S. This is not a live scoring thread - no scores please.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

She's the underdog. I expected her to play uninhibited like she always does. As I said before, Sam being the clear favourite is working against her in her first slam final.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

well, many people, including John McEnroe, felt it would just be a formality and Stosur will take the win in 2 easy sets.

But here we are. Fran came to play.

Stosur does nothing except bash the ball as hard as she can

Yes she is.
Emotions can go both ways.
It can motivate you, but also mess with your head.
