Here is a link to a pre-RG interview that somebody kindly posted in GM:

http://www.eurosport.com/tennis/roland-garros/2006/mc_vid25408.shtml

She talks about coaches, and winning Miami, and wanting to improve :) it's a really nice interview :yeah: and she looks great! :hearts: I have a superstition about cheering and predictions so I shall keep it brief..., Go Sveta! :bounce: Do your best! :kiss:

Edit: The Amelie interview is also worth a look if you fancy a giggle! :lol: "I love what? :confused: strong cocktails?! I say that on my website???"

Good luck Svet. Had a dream last nite, i was watching the french open final it was ame vs Sveta, (which would rock if it happened), Amelie won the first set 6-4 and then i woke up :rolleyes: , typical.

:lol: So did you ever dreamt something that it become a reality?

lol, yes Liverpool winning the champions league final on penaltys, and also before the australian i had a dream that amelie would win that, although i also had a dream that she got injured during the Ao that seemed to work the opposite way with her opponents getting "injured" .

QF: Sveta d. DInara Safina 7-6(5) 6-0 :D

I saw the match... Safina was up 5-1 in the first set, that was coz Sveta's forehand was REALLY OFF :o
Bun then she came back :D

Davai Sveta! Keep those forehands and serves good!
(I really like Dinara, and it was lovely to see her believe
in herself against Sharapova. But in my gut, I had the
feeling that Sveta would win today.)

just wanted to say all the very best to your girl tomorrow! She is on her way now to being something very special and easily the best of the Russians. I met her again last week at Roland Garros and she was lovely as usual. We are a Davenport house here but we are all rooting for Sveta tomorrow. Enjoy the match Kuzzie fans- Cmon SVETA :bounce: !!!

Did you see the way the stuck a mic in her face like 2 mins after the game was over? That was a bit too much -very disrespectful. :hug: Sveta :hug: Awww, I'm gutted she lost, but all the same this was a great tournement :) and the game was closer than it looked I think.

Anyway -there is lots to smile about in Special K! Proud fellow Sveta fans, a toast to the future!... :drink: (see you at Eastbourne Sveta :wavey: )

Did anyone see that serve of justines that the umpire called in and he pointed to the wrong mark? i thought that was a bit unfair. Sveta played so well against justine, and she is always so honest.
