The best match of the year after this one should be Lindsay Davenport against Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon...

:tape: she will only make top 10 it seems if someone drops some points ahead of her... can she even find a way to mess that up too?

o well, prolly a good match from both of them. too bad we didn't see it.

There is no loser! Vera should be proud! This makes it almost criminal to have a tie break after such outstanding play! 17 15 is amazing! The heart and fight displayed by both is awe inspiring.

I hate to say it but move over america the russians are here and if you dont step up you will get stepped on.

I hope myskina can recover mentally and physically in time to win this tournament! GO SKINA! You can be number one in the world and in russia!

Cybelle Darkholme
Aug 1st, 2004, 04:41 AM
Sad?

This match was an event! its not sad. It should show vera that she has what it takes to be not only top ten but top five and higher!



Though I wish the crowd was more behind vera but oh well she can hold her head high.

updates on vera crying, please :tape:
im just very sad for her and curious how she will react to this.
must be difficult. myskina is sooo stealy and doesn't miss a whole lot on any point, can't imagine trying to close out a tough match against her...

venusfan

Myskina got her last match point when the she hit a volley and it slammed into the net and just roll over on vera's side. It was just a fantastic match, I have so much fucking respect for Myskina and Vera from this point.. They both embrace each other at the net for awhile. Myskina talking now and said it was so much better than the French Open, not sure if she means it or not. Hopefully ESPN will show some of it because I think the final will be a blowout

Bravo Myskina!

venusfan
Aug 1st, 2004, 04:43 AM
Oh, I forgot to mention. Myskina was screaming at her coach thoughout the match when she was down in the 3rd set.. from 2-0 lead to 2-5 to 5-5, it was the best 3rd set I've seen in a very long time. The Lindsay/Venus match was full of errors..

Mase
Aug 1st, 2004, 04:43 AM
Bravo Myskina!
She has some much tenacity, its not even funny. You have to give her credit thats for sure...

OMG!!! What a match. What is the longest tiebreak in history, btw? :confused: Too bad, fucking ESPN didnt show this. :mad: :rolleyes: Too busy showing fucking Roddick!! :mad: :fiery: I hope he gets his ass kicked tomorrow, badly ;) Great match, by both :worship: :worship:

OMG :::Cries:::: i really wanted vera to get into top 10. she's been denied so many times. OMG I cried for an hour. this is so heartbreaking. i really feel bad for vera. i mean I am very proud of her. 15-17 in a third set tiebreaker against your countrywoman, trying to prove how valuable you are to your country and trying to get top 10 and trying to win a tier 1 title. OMG CONGRADTS Vera, u did very well. I'm rambling, but i cannot help it. I hate when fairy tale endings like this get destroyed. I cried when hant lost to kuznetsova in the eastbourne tournament too. that fairy tale ended in a heartbreaking manner, just like this one.

exactly. This was a tennis match! Not that error fest Venus and Lindsay had. When you see excellent tennis by both players you truly understand what a great match can be.

and thats the beauty of it! She should be proud because this could have gone either way. She remained tough even though she could have easily folded when she lost that huge lead in the third. I have new respect for Vera.

It was on the Tennis Channel.. and Vera will be back on court in about an hour or so because the doubles match will be broadcast live also.

Let's not forget that Myskina blew 4 match points of her own though!

Feel so bad for Zvonareva... she has to play doubles after this!

OH MY GOD. 2-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (15)??? What an amazing scoreline.

Vera :crying2: :sad: :bigcry: :timebomb: :banghead:
10 match points lost? Broken twice when serving for it? I can't believe it.

Congratulations, Anastasia and good luck in the final tomorrow. :clap2: I'll be happier for you in a little bit. But right now I am just in shock.

AND I AM SO MAD AT ESPN! :fiery: How could this match not have been shown in favor of a fucking HOT DOG EATING CONTEST? There is no way you can make me believe that getting the in the fifth episode of SportsCenter and Baseball Tonight today was more important than a tier I semifinal between two top 10 caliber players. It's not like many people are home watching TV anyways, so why not show the damn tennis match?! I bet anything they would have shown the match if it featured Serena or Maria.

She held it in after she embraced Myskina at the net. Then you could see her start to break down as she went to shake the umpire's hand. Poor girl :(

Great post, Cybelle. :worship: How could anyone NOT respect these two players after that effort? Amazing fight from both, just never giving up. They are both headed for big things. I can't believe I couldn't watch it :bigcry:
