Lisa played great. You don't want to draw her at Wimbledon.

Wow. What an excellent victory! This should give her the confidence she needs in the future. And it's great Vera kept her head to take this. Congrats Bepa! :D

Is it a good candidate for one of the best matches of the season so far?

Great job Bepa! :yeah:

btw, was Vera's winning 5 games in a row helped by one of Raymond's patented choke-jobs?

Vera's second title. Her third final. She won Bol, Croatia, and made the finals in Palermo.

I'm really happy for Vera. After being trashed by the media, and
off course the peanut gallery here in her match against LD in Melbourne;
it's great to see her put her act together. She was on fire at RG last
year, and I never got the feeling that it was a one slam thing.

Congrats especially to fans of the Russian Mob! A toast to title #2~

GREAT final. Easily the best match I've seen since Capriati/Henin-Hardenne USO semis.

Just peeved that The Tennis Channel decided to go wonky at 4-5 deuce in the last set !

There sure are. Every player has a unique approach to choking ;) Seriously though, did Lisa start hitting Novotna-can't-wait-to-ruin-the-duchess's-dress-with-my-tears-esque volleys?

Lisa got tired. She still was very, very close to winning.
But up 5-2 in the third, you have to close it out.

Another homage to the great Jana?

I bet Lisa Raymond is a dog person. She just doesn't seem like
the cat type. ;)

Great Vera, hopefully this match can provide all the confidence needed so that we won't be seeing anymore weeping Vera!;)

What a choke. Lisa was so close to winning her third straight Memphis title but the pressure was too much for her. :sad:

Anyway, congrats to Veras on a fine win. :)
