Martina/Sveta in *great* doubles battle...

against Jidkova and Morigami. Martina/Sveta have just taken the second set in a tiebreak (8-6).

Hope someone else is here reading this cuz typing and talking makes it less nerve-wracking for me!

Oh dear, I see that they have just suspended play for the day. Now I have to wait under *tomorrow* and get all nervous again!

Zummi, or anyone, come talk to me tomorrow, OK?

I'm not so optimistic/pessimistic as you, Eggy! *LOL* But I think it will be a *great* last set. I like Alina/Akiko also as they were almost the "stars" of Amelia Island this year, as they graciously did a little exhibition with two local junior players here.

I just hope if it is as good as I think it will be, US tv will show a bit of it!

Hopefully the Russian/American team will triumph! I am surprised to see you rooting against svetlana, TBE. You really don't like Martina, do you?

I think it was just one match point when Sveta served down 3-5.

Jidkova/Morigami were up 5-3 in the tie-break, just two points from winning. Martina & Sveta were very lucky to win, I think.

Don't know about tomorrow, but the best of luck to Martina & Sveta. It will be a very difficult set and Jidkova/Morigami will have to be the favorites given how back-and-forth the match was.

I think Martina will be HOT for winning it.

It might be that they weren´t so much into the match that late a day and that if playing earlier and being under pressure, they´ll win it.

Apart from the Kuerten match, this match isn´t on the schedule for today. Is that true ???

I don´t think so because they MUST finish Guga for the 4 remaining 4th round matches played tomorrow

So both matches aren´t on the 3 show courts then right and should be placed somewhere else later ?

There´s a mixed match for Martina as a fifth match on that court and the other courts full of junior matches. I doubt they´d have a problem finishing that match tomorrow but what speaks against that is the problem with the Guga-match

I think they could easily replace that mixed match by the doubles and the Guga-set could be on one of the 3 main courts - best on the court where all 4 other matches are finished the earliest

What's going on.. I was about to watch on the scoreboard and it came off mine also..

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow
