Mary Vs Elena
Go Mary!!! Go France!
I thought this was funny:
PARIS, Sept 16 (Reuters) - France's Mary Pierce, who beat Elena Dementieva in controversial fashion at the U.S. Open last week, will face her Russian rival again in the opening singles match of the Fed Cup final on Saturday at Roland Garros.
Dementieva accused Pierce of using unfair tactics when she lost 3-6 6-2 6-2 to the Frenchwoman in their semi-final at Flushing Meadows.
The Russian said Pierce faked an injury when she took back-to-back timeouts lasting 12 minutes to receive treatment after losing the first set.
There would be no hard feelings on Saturday, Dementieva said.
"If there is a break, it will be because of the weather, not because of Mary," the Russian said after Friday's draw, on a miserable day in the French capital.
Asked by a Russian journalist what she would do this time to trouble her opponent, Pierce smiled.
"I think I'll arrive 20 minutes late," she joked.
