Viva Extra Time!!!!!!

anyhoo, her semi took less than an hour... elena should be thankful mary made it take another unnecessary 10-15 minutes.

Likhovsteva should be happy that Pierce took so much time, if she didn't the match would have been over in 30 minutes !!

No if she wins it will be because she was the best player over these two weeks or because Justine gets injured in the finals and is unable to finish the match.

The only way she can win it is if Henin gets injured or sick.. Shot to shot she has no say in this match, different leagu, different galaxy. Top 5 against Top 50.. But now that's a final, one off match. Anything can happen. Even an average player can end up being a winner against one of the best players in the world, like in 2004 RG men's final..

I think she would have beaten Lindsay and Elena regardlessly, but I think it might have effect Patty [and the crowd]. Justine'll cope with it.

You're saying Mary is just a top 50 player? :lol: Great analysis! Where do you class Vera Z, Patty, and Lindsay in the rankings then? They can't even be in the top 100, according to your standards.

Henin is the overwhelming favourite, I admit. But saying Mary is in a 'different galaxy' to Justine is ridiculous. :)

Are you suggesting she is not? :lol:

Pierce played somewhat better against Vera and Patty. And on top of that they are headcases, which Pierce is not. And Lindsay can lose to pretty much anybody on clay. She should have lost to Peng, for one.

No, it is not. Wanna bet?

"Pierce played somewhat better against Vera and Patty. And on top of that they are headcases, which Pierce is not."

Ys, you are dangerously underestimating Mary Pierce. You are better than that. You do have a well functioning memory and I'm sure you can remember 2000, 1997, 1994 etc. You may say it was long ago, but Mary is showing signs of recapturing her former form. Plus, Mary Pierce not being a headcase !!!!! She's one of my favourites, but Mary is one of the biggest headcases ever. She could trash a Top 10 player one day and lose to a below 100 player the next.

Who cares about her former form? Her 1994, 1997, 2000 opponents would not have a prayer against Henin. Just like her.

Different type of headcase. Mary is headcase of a day-to-day type. If she is on, she will likely stay on for all match. Vera and Patty are second-to-second type of headcases.. You never know what is going to happen next minute.

SPARE ME Ys !!!!!!!! :devil: Conchita almost beat Juju in three sets. Mary almost slaughtered her in 2 sets in 2000 :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p

First match of the tournament.. Everyone takes a set off Henin in the first round..

She would have slaughtered her even worse in 1995.

A Mary win would be great but honestly Im happy either way because no blonde russian is winning this and in fact no russian at all. That can only be good.

Don't go making excuses for Juju :p And, by the way, you and I know that Conchita played very well :p As to 1995, you came up with the explanation yourself: Mary is a day-to-day headcase :p

The bottom line is, ys: you said no one Mary beat could threaten Juju, but Conchita did prove you are wrong :p

No she didn't.. The match was exciting, but the quality was awful.

No she didn't, Conchita never threatened Henin in Slam semis..

If Mary wins it's cos she played great tennis. She will have to produce the highest quality cos I believe Justine has her number.

Conchita proved you wrong :p Just be fair and admit it :p :devil:
