Gajdosova and Hlavackova



Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS) and Andrea Hlavackova (CZE) DEF. (4) Sabine Lisicki (GER) and Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)
1-6, 6-3, 6-2


After a dominant display from the No.4 seeds there looked no way out for Jarka and Andrea, but both came back fighting in the second and third set to upset the No.4 seeds. Lisicki and Kuzzy had the match in their grasp and still played to a high level in the second and third sets, but the Aussie and Czech played the best they have played all season!

Make her run. Get her. Remember, it takes courage and discipline to do/be Serena Williams- the best.

(2) Garrigues and Petrova



(2) Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP) and Nadia Petrova (RUS) DEF. Kim Clijsters (BEL) and Jelena Dokic (AUS)
0-6, 6-2, 6-2


After it was clear that Anabel and Nadia didn't want to work together, the opening set really showed this as both made hardly any effort in the first set. However after an exchange of words from the umpire to the duo of Petrova and Garrigues, who were given warnings of possible fines for not trying, they certainly reached their potential and showed the dominance they display as a team when they are working at their best and as a team!! Clijsters and Dokic really had no chance in the second and third sets as Garrigues and Petrova were pretty much unstoppable! Petrova may be out of Singles as the World No.1, but does she now fancy her chances at the US Open Doubles Grand Slam Title maybe?

Make her run. Get her. Remember, it takes courage and discipline to do/be Serena Williams- the best.

(1) Anna Chakvetadze (RUS) and Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) DEF. Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) and Christina McHale (USA)
6-3, 6-2


Looks like Anna Chakvetadze and Dominika Cibulkova's coach Miracle Worker went back to basics from the Australian Open!! Both Cibulkova and Chavetadze won Grand Slam Gold in the Australian Open Final against then partners Ashley Harkleroad and Gislela Dulko. Both have played better and better as the Doubles Tournament has moved on. Domi played some ruthless shots and rallies, while even creating some tension at the net, as Anna Chakvetadze who won Singles Gold and Doubles Gold at the Australian Open which propelled her to World No.1 in both Singles and Doubles refused to let any ball slip from her grasp. There's no question that Aga and Chrissie have had fantastic success together this tournament advancing through to the Semi-Finals, and should stay as a permanent team. Both showed flashes of excellence especially towards the beginning of the opening set, but the Russian and Slovak were on top today and could very well become 2 time Doubles Grand Slam Champions come tomorrow!

(2) Medina Garrigues and Petrova



(2) Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP) and Nadia Petrova (RUS) DEF. Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS) and Andrea Hlavackova (CZE)
6-4, 6-2


After getting in trouble in their Quarter-Final match up, Petrova and Garrigues who have been known to be unable to stand each other followed in the footsteps of the No.1 seeds playing in ruthless form. The opening set was the hardest for the No.2 pair who were seen to be struggling with tactics they had been talking through at change of ends for what seemed to take forever. It seemed as both couldn't agree at first, but with some strong, hard and consistant hitting from the No.1 Singles player in the World Petrova, Garrigues was able to come to the net to take her opportunity in finishing the points off to keep the Aussie and German guessing every time. The second set was much easier for the Russian and Spaniard who seemed to be at ease with the play that they were executing! It didn't take long to rap up the final set as Garrigues and Petrova even gave each other a celebration hug. Jarmila and Andrea have played a fantastic tournament this past fortnight and both are looking a promising duo for future tournaments to come.

But a block-buster final ahead! No.1 seeds Chakvetadze and Petrova who are aiming for their second Grand Slam together will face No.2 seeds Garrigues and Petrova who are aiming for their first ever Doubles Grand Slam title together! Who will take everything?

Make her run. Get her. Remember, it takes courage and discipline to do/be Serena Williams- the best.

Re: ART US Open G/S- Week 18

Well congratulations to No.1 seeds Chakvetadze and Cibulkova. They have reached their second Grand Slam Doubles Final. They will be going for their second Grand Slam Doubles Title, if all goes their way in the Final tomorrow!! Can they do it?

Though in their way is first time Grand Slam Double Finalists Petrova and Garrigues who looked extremely pumped up now and now know what is at stake! A Grand Slam Doubles Title!!

Congratulations to Coaches Miracle Worker and Flareon! You have done a fantastic job!!
