A Kournikova/Widjaja final would be fitting

It would give Anna a chance to redeem herself from the professional low of the U.S. Open...fight off those personal demons.

There is a long way to go before that happens, though!

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

Even for those who dislike Anna, don't you think it would be good for tennis if she finally won a singles title? People complain about her getting so much attention despite not having a title...and many of these same people always root for her to lose

Aren't we a little bit ahead of ourselves here?
I'm sure Ai-chan has something to say about
the Kounikova finish for the title this Sunday.

Smashnova and Ai are not exactly push overs.

Greenout - Who is getting ahead of themselves?? That is why I added "There is a long way to go before that happens, though"

Ok-- Should be interesting. I'd wish we could see it.
Counter punchers -vs- offensive players.

Is it being televised anywhere other than perhaps China?

I'd really love an Anna-Angie final, but Ai would have to be locked in her locker for Anna to reach the finals

Anna is playing a lot better than she did at the US open, and so is Angie. In fact Angie is the one who has beaten the tougher opponent here, Clarisa, a top-40 player.
That final would indeed be interesting, Jason. But I still would prefer to see Ai in the final and also to take the title! I was hoping for Clarisa vs. Ai, but Angie vs. Ai would suit me just fine, too.

Ai winning in singles and doubles would make my day. Go Ai! Ai! Ai!
