18:59 Maria Sharapova walks out onto court knowing victory would take her to second in the world rankings. For Kim Clijsters the prospect of become only the second player - since Steffi Graf - to win an Indian Wells-Miami double will mean she'll rise to 17th in the world lists. Only four weeks ago the Belgian was 133rd!

They have no choice because CBS is contractually obligated to carry the tournament.

Right now, if you are in the US, we are watching a special report on the Pope.

Apr 2nd, 2005, 05:30 PM
19:26 The rain is fall quite heavily now and without the aid of tarpaulin covers - something U.S. tournament director don't cater for - the final could be delayed for quite a while... stay logged on to eurosport.com/co.uk for weather updates!

19:25 Kim Clijsters and Maria Sharapova walk off court with their bags back to the locker-room... thousands of spectators head for the exits... huge dark clouds cover the Grandstand Court and Key Biscayne area...

19:24 IT'S RAINING LIGHTLY! The chair umpire calls the players to their chairs...

19:23 CLIJSTERS sets up BREAK POINT through a backhand that drops dead the net... Sharapova can't believe it, the Belgian apologies! Sharapova serving at 30-40...

19:19 Clijsters closes out to love placing her first deliveries into court as ball boys run to catch towels and stray cups that fall onto the surface... 2-1

19:17 The crowd let out a collective groan as SHARAPOVA first hits the net cord, then drives a wild backhand out of court to give CLIJSTERS an immediate BREAK BACK for 1-1!

19:15 BREAK POINT for CLIJSTERS... Sharapova serving at advantage point down... the Russian hits a good forehand-backhand combination attacking the net to get the game back to DEUCE!

19:11 A SECOND BREAK POINT for SHARAPOVA... the pair engage in a short rally but Clijsters overcooks a backhand long of the baseline, lunging for the shot... SHARAPOVA BREAKS for 1-0

19:11 BREAK POINT for SHARAPOVA, struggling with her service throw up in the wind, Clijsters serves at 30-40... first serve into the body is unreturned, DEUCE!

19:08 Kim Clijsters gets the women's final in Miami underway, serving first... play!

Okay, I thought you meant balls in rallies which you have to run for. :)
And Maria served to venus' forehand all the time - mean girl :mad:

Apr 2nd, 2005, 05:32 PM

they said it stopped but you could see it was still raining...I know they couldn't do it because of TV committments but they shoulda waited to start until late afternoon when both storm fronts are finished. This way the players and play is messed up and we still probably won't get to see much of it. And dnag espn for not sowing Clijsters vs Mauresmo...typical but soooooooo annoying :(

But it is going to take a while to dry off the court, get the (sparse) crowd back in, the player come back out to practice and resume play. We are talking about 30 minutes for all of that to happen.

They could move coverage over to ESPN2, but they are showing classic boxing all day:o . Too bad CBS doesn't have a cable station. If they did, then we could see the rest of the match.

I'm following live scores at http://www.nasdaq-100open.com/scores/

Seeing as we're in a rain-delay, I might as well post my notes so far:

First Set

Started 12:09 EST.

Clijsters serving 0-0: 15/0, 15/30, 30/30, 30/40 (BP), Deuce, ad M (BP #2), broken

Important for Maria to get off to a good start after Clijsters thrashed Amélie Mauresmo 6-1 6-0 in the semi-finals! A lot of times the start of a match can really set the tone for what will follow.

Sharapova serving 1-0: 0/30, 15/30, 30/30, 40/30, Deuce, ad C (BP), Deuce #2, ad C (BP #2), broken

Hmmph! :(

Clijsters serving 1-1: held to love

Now it's important for Maria to respond to that emphatic hold with one of her own. When Maria is holding serve easily, it puts so much pressure on a player like Clijsters to hold hers.

Sharapova serving 1-2: 15/0, 15/15, 15/30, 30/30, Clijsters hits a dead-netcord winner, 30/40 (BP) - due to rain, play was suspended from 12:25 to...

If this match goes past 2 eastern, CBS will just leave it.
These 2 players won the last 2 YEC's.


For CBS to cover the final four, it cost them much more than it costs to cover tennis. Again, shame on CBS for not having a cable station so they can move it to there. They can't put it on EPSN or ESPN2 because one has college basketball (ESPN), the other has classic boxing (ESPN2).

It would kill me to have to watch Kim demolish Momo but I would just to see what she does so effectively against her!! :o

well, i think that kim reads her serve REALLY well. and if u think about it, justine used to play a lot like momo. heavy ass topspin shots. and kim used to whoop her ass easily 6-1 6-2, 6-2 6-3....but justine improved. she flattened out her shots and improved her serve and movements and came to the net a lot more.

momo, not as speedy as justine, has wide array of shots but never uses them (her net skills are unbelievable, better than justine's) and because kim is a retriever she plays well against momo. with hard hitters, she still makes loads of UE's because of the depth and pace of shots, but wit momo, its easy for her to keep the ball in and make momo make the error. and when kim goes to the net, momo hardly hits a good lob. her passings are never DTL but straight back to kim.

think about it.

think about it.

Sounds like Momo needs to be more agressive going to the net and varying her shots more?? Didn't she do that during the last match (I'm going by what I read) and Kim was just too good?? Sounds like Momo needs some new strategies, in any case!!!! :(

I wish I knew whether this rain-delay will be buggering on long enough for me to get my meal. :(

Today for Maria's a pain
She has to wait for the rain
But soon she will volley
And then we'll be jolly
And Clijsters will be on a plane

yeah, she slices way too much. kim hndles slices well. and she needs to flatten out her shots more.maybe try out a new serving tactic as well. and against kim, its also a head thing for her. lots of errors. and her approaches against kim is pretty bad. she often looks like a dead duck at the net. straight in the middle. HOWEVER, one thing she has is that she smashes kim'slobs really well. lets face it. momo is one talented biatch. she needs to forget who's on the other side of the net.
