Petrova is squahing Davenport...

for the moment, That serve of Petrova can be lethal i mean never saw a player with a serve avg of 110, i think only Venus once at wimby when playing Henin in the final of 01 had 111 but briefly and then avg overall 107.

Just took the first set 6-3, Lindsay looks to be in trouble, so i guess the slower of these two is going to lose the match. Both not known for their speediness on court but Petrova the younger and more athletetic of the two is currently winning and most likely will be the victor who plays against Mauresmo on the finals.

Yep...already a break up. Wow, Nadia´s little coming out party. 110 mph average serve?! It´s amazing....

Always bet on black!

Petrova is known for being slow?

Not when I last saw her. I may be wrong about that, but when I last watched Nadia she had NOTICEABLY good movement. Not the fastest, but certainly at a level where she'd never be made to look cumbersome by anybody.

Nadia and Lindsay are very similar players. They both have wonderfully fluid actions. Nadia's faster, while Lindsay in her maturity is a lot more solid.

Nadia has had so many injuries. Maybe someone saw her when she was suffering from a foot injury because she was out with one.

Nadia is certainly a sleek looking athlete.

Slow or not, she´s really repeating her perfomance from against Serena....today against Lindsay. Lindsay can´t even touch the girl´s serve, just ONE bp....and no breaks.

Always bet on black!

Well her mom or dad was an olympian, world class runner and medal winner! So i only saw her the year when she made the qfs at the U.S open and lost to Davenport i think she didnt look spectacularly fast nor too slow sort of a bit faster version of Davenport and a much more powerful serve, but rather inconsistent. Should Petrova harness her power and become more consistent and less injury prone she'd certainly be an established top 6 player certainly a slam contender. Hence shes got good genes anyways!

She's not slow. Can't you see that with your own eyes?
