Did anyone tape the matches?

I'm looking for a DVD tape of the Davenport and Pierce matches... If anyone taped these with english commentary, I would love to get a hold of it, and will pay you for it. Please let me know if you do... Thanks.

Hello E.



I wanted the Pierce match so I can hear what the commentators had to say about it. Apparently it caused a bit of a stir.

NEW YORK - Mary Pierce resorted to gamesmanship and Kim Clijsters recovered the spark she’d momentarily lost to set up a U.S. Open final between one of the oldest women in the game and the toughest on tour this year.

Pierce brought her famous histrionics to a new level Friday — a 12-minute, double-injury timeout after she lost the first set, another tape job afterward, doses of eye drops here and there, endless poses and finger-blowing between shots — before she finally put away last year’s rattled runner-up, Elena Dementieva, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2.

At 30, Pierce knows all the tricks of the tennis trade, and she used them to good effect against Dementieva, a 23-year-old Russian who had enough trouble overcoming her own tragic serve, never mind waiting for Pierce to play.

Pierce had a minor injury — a right quad muscle she tweaked in her quarterfinal victory over fellow Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo — but she decided, in the interests of strategy, not to tape it before playing Dementieva.

“I didn’t want my opponent to know there was anything wrong with me,” Pierce said.

Dementieva didn’t have to see a bandage to know she could win points against Pierce by running her from side to side. Avoiding the double-faults that often plague her — she had 62 in the first five rounds — Dementieva seemed on the verge of a straight-sets victory even with her powder-puff serves.

Pierce, though, wasn’t about to give up so easily on a chance to claim the third major title of her career, five years after she won the French and 10 years after she won the Australian.

“After I lost the first set, I was like, ‘OK, I need to get help because I can’t play this way,”’ Pierce said.

The rules allow a player one timeout per injury, and each timeout is not supposed to exceed 6 minutes — 3 minutes for evaluation, 3 minutes for treatment. Because Pierce claimed two injuries — she said her leg problem was affecting her back — she was allowed two timeouts.

She lay on her stomach while the trainer massaged her back, then did a couple of yoga stretches. She had her right thigh wrapped with a yard of tape. While Dementieva went back onto the court to warm up, Pierce got down on the ground again and the trainer worked some more on her back.

“You can change the game around by winning an unbelievable point or by changing the rhythm,” Dementieva said. “By taking a 12-minute timeout, I don’t think it was a fair play, but she could do it by the rules. And she did it. If that’s the only way she can beat me, I mean, it’s up to her.

“I’ve never had such a long break. I was trying just to keep warm, stay focused because that was pretty long.”

Dementieva was thrown off almost as much by the time Pierce took between points when they resumed play. Pierce always plays deliberately, but in this match she got away with more delays than usual.

“If she has 20 seconds, she’s going to use 25 seconds between points,” Dementieva said.

Pierce denied the timeouts were gamesmanship.

No. No, not at all,” she protested.

“I had injuries that I needed to attend to to help me. I was hoping that would help, that I could play better, and it did.”

Pierce surely looked like a different player in the second and third sets, while Dementieva’s level dropped. The Russian double-faulted four times in the final set, running her tournament total to 68, and repeatedly looked at her mother and coach, Vera, for encouragement.

It did no good.

“Maybe I was a little bit angry in the second set, but then I know if I want to win this match, I have to be focused, not think about what she did,” Dementieva said.

You have bittorrent?

I cannot download the 2nd one because of the filename encoding.
