Believe it or not..no coverage of the event in Asia!!

Nope, not even tv clips here in SouthEast Asia. I'm sick of
all the sailing, and Cricket world cup news stories.

So, tell me someone how Ai did it? Still can't believe she
beat LD? a pretty amazing week. What was so different,
and so great?

I'll fill you in

At the start of the match, Ai was on fire. I really expected her to run out of gas sooner or later becuz of her conditions. She was up 3-1 before Kim really took it from her, winning 6-3 in the first. At this point im thinking Kim will take it in two...but Ai proves me wrong. She doesn't have a good start in the 2nd set, but manages to counter punch everything Kim gives her. Kim's net ability wasn't so great either, missing about 3 overhead smashes. She tried to make Ai run more by doing drop shots (which worked twice) but the 3rd time Ai caught up with it. Then there was a rain delay, and when they came out, it was all Ai. She had the shots, and Kim couldn't keep up. That's bout it...

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

finally seen a few seconds of the match via the BBC

The match was actually mentioned on BBC World. A clip too.

Oh- so it was a huge counter puncher running match eh?
Considering that Ai had to play against such big hitters/
and power servers all week- this is quite fantastic.

I can so believe it. Tennis coverage seems to stopped completely except for the Slams. I remember 2 years ago when they showed the semifinals and finals of an event a week after it's completed. That was good considering what we have now, or rather what we don't have.
