In spite of Lena losing all her matches in straight sets, especially the matches against Mauresmo and Clisters were still very good quality and the highlight of going to the tournie for me. Even in defeat she was magnificent. I am trying to get copies of them on video so i can watch them again, she was that good. So i dont know if you guys saw the matches on TV but take my word for it that Lena provided plenty of bang for the buck in L.A., regardless of the scoreline outcomes.
none of her matches were shown on tv.. if someone can get them can they be sent

If next year's field at the Championships will again be the 'usual suspects', I'm afraid I don't have much optimism for Lena's prospects. Unless she wins some big titles in the season, and surprises everyone.
She was probably very tired: she didn't stop playing since the US Open.
She played Fed cup (where she played the three matches in 3 sets) and after this, she participated in all the tournament to be qualified for the championship!!!!!
give her a break now please ,this subject is over ,why keep rehashing it. you want unparalelled sucess then join the Belgians or something .Lena is not for people who want win after win ..she is who she is and i very much doubt we can achieve any more in life than she has and still can.
