This is the first thread I saw so I'm gonna assume that this is the official one. Great match from Kim. I'm not her biggest fan, but all due credit to her. As of this moment, her level of tennis was just higher than Maria's. SHe is playing like the number 1 player in the world, and I have no problem saying that. She's a huge favorite going into the French. I'm SOOOOOO proud of Maria, words cannot describe how I feel about her. To lose 6-0, 6-0 last week and then to come back and reach the finals, I definitely think she proved her haters wrong. Kim has beaten everyone and their moms the last few weeks. There is no shame in losing to her. At least Maria gave the crowd a great match and didn't just back off when Kim was seriously getting EVERY SINGLE BALL back. I'm very excited about this year. I expect the top five at the end of the year to be Belgiums, Williams, and Sharapova. I could be wrong, but thats what this tournament tells me. Great job to all the girls!

I agree with you!
Couldn't have happened to a more deserving player.. and a good competitor as well!
No gamesmanship etc, just good solid tennis.
Goes to show you last years Russian revolution was an aberration and totally fake!

What did the announcers say at the end of the match? I am at work and had to watch with the sound off.

I dont think that the Russian Revolution was a fake..but just when all the rest of the top players are back its harder for them to dominate like last year..but Maria,Elena,Sveta, and others are still top..
