Congrats to Mary! <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <br />Bad luck to Babsi! <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

This is a real test for Mary. I would say she is coming back. Both girls hit the ball so well and played the same but Babsi is not good enough to beat Mary. Totally I would say Mary played better than babsi, Mary moved well, serve well, hit the ball deep and hit the winner when opponent give a shot ball. I think Mary need some some couple warming match like this before OZ Open.

Welcome back Mary, you are a great player. <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> <img src="graemlins/kiss.gif" border="0" alt="[Kiss]" />

exhibtions give very unrealistic indicators, for example capriati lost here last year in the semis to anna and then won the Australian Open, this match gives me no pointer of babsi's form yet, i am waiting til she plays a wta tournament with points.

Nice match for both Mary & Babsi.

I can't wait to see how Mary will do against Jennifer/Lindsay/Serena/Venus should they meet at AO!

For Mary it's all about confidence at the moment. She knows how to play the kind of tennis that has gotten her 2 GS titles.

Exhibitions obviously don't tell the whole story, but I am just so pleased that Mary could be in a position to want and need the competitive action.

It's a great sign!
