Martina is scaring me...

I'm serious, I've never seen her play like she is now.

She is playing with a conviction that we have not seen for 18 months at least. if this is the new "Attitude" expect Grand slams to follow.

6-1 6-1
6-4 6-2

Against 2 very accomplished players in Raymond and troublesome Sandrine, not to mention the convincing doubles results..it all feels and smells really good

That's true that Raymond and Testud are certainly no pushover players... from what I've heard in the interviews Martina sounds so much more relaxed; I think now that the pressure of being #1 and having to prove it are gone, she can relax and just play tennis the way she's supposed to and not try to outhit the power players. And if that's the case, then I think she'll most definitely be #1 again.

We'll know for sure when she takes on Kim and (probably) Serena.

I just watch Martina's doubles match, and her and Anna both played a great match. Hopefully victory in the doubles will add to her confidence and help her on her way to climbing back up the rankings and adding to her Grand Slam total!

Gooo Martina!!!

i'm so happy for marti


A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I'm very happy for her, it's very nice to see her back on the courts, her smile, her finesse, her tantrums *laughter*...

Go Martina, you stand as good a chance as anyone there. This is only the start of the amazing 2002! :

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!
