Are you getting nervous/anxious...

...before the biggest final of the Russian female tennis player?

I'm not. I didn't expect Lena to do so well in her first tournament after a break, so each win starting with the quarters is like a bonus. I, of course, want her to win, but, moreso, I want her to show a good tennis.

So, I'm going to relax and enjoy tennis tomorrow...

But go Lena !

Very good question! I really am. But, I totally agree with you, tenn_ace. I didn't expect anything from Elena. I am just glad that she has come back and begun to have good wins again. Anyway, I can't help hoping she will win. If not, it's not the end of the world. She has done such a great job already. Yeah, the only thing I don't want is the one-sided scoreline. I want to see her fight til the end.

Go Elena. We believe in you.

we are not going to hear the end of it on this board if it's a one sided scoreline...

I guess so. That's why I don't want that.

Nastya winning the KC was pretty big. Nastya will always be the first Russian Tier I champion. And it was in Moscow.
This is big moneywise. But Elena walks away with $210,000 if she doesn't win. So it's all good.

The first Russian to win a major, that's the big one.

No... because I have no expectations of Lena even making this competitive.

Is playing in the Key Biscayne final bigger than winning the KC?
This year, Justine, Kim, Lindsay, Amelie, and Nastya aren't playing. I don't remember Anna in 1998.

Any other year... I'd say the Miami final is more important.

yeah, ys, you're right... and for a while, until sometime in the second set, I thought the title would be ours...

Anna actually had the most impressive run then in, probably, recent history. 3 top 10 players in a row.

This tournament is not that strong. Nadia beat Monica, Jennifer, and Vera in Roland Garros.
And I think Elena's road to the title in AI was at least as tough as this one. And it was her first title.

it will be different from AI... Lena will be o the run all the time, but she'll have less time due to a different type of court. it will be tougher.
