Martina:sad: Wasn't aggressive enough, this surface definitely advantages Kuzzy though... Still she lost serve only 3 times, she really tried in the third but Kuzzy served really well... Prepare for the YEC Marti:bounce:

Hmmm, good try Martina!! You did your country proud. It was a tough three set match, and a very strange scoreline. Hopefully you can qualify for the YEC and win a couple of matches there. Good year babe! I love you!!!!

Thats a shame how often a player levels the match and then loses the decider. Anyway, I'm just glad she made it to the YEC, it means a lot to come out of retirement and instantly be top 8. Incredible situation. :)

What did Marti say to Kuzy at the end...I think a few words were said...;) :p:devil: Marti whispered something in her ear, and Sveta's smile quickly disappeared and she just looked confused...and a bit angry. Hingis just looked pissed. I'm not surprised, she really had her chances there.

Did you see what happened at the net when the match finished? They shook hands and Martina must have said something to Sveta whilst they were shaking hands, because Sveta smiled and looked as if to say "what did you say?" Martina said it again and Sveta had a total look of shock on her ... Sveta looked at her as if she couldn't believe what she had just heard! :eek:

Did anyone else see it? I'm wondering what Martina said to her? :rolleyes:

It didn't look nice from the way Sveta reacted. Martina looked totally pissed that she lost :lol:

Glad you won Sveta ... ignore what Martina said ... you played a wonderful match and go win the final because you will get there if you are not too knackered! :worship: :bounce:

And yet again a missed oppurtunity to win another title... I'm not optimistic at all for the YEC ! I expected Martina to lose today anyway after her unimpressive wins against ALG and Dechy...

oh no! I think this lessens Dani's chances for making the finals. You never know with Dani though. Maybe she can step up her game enough to beat Sveta. Oh i hope so :)

Good job though Sveta! Weird scoreline...

Very good match from both players but Sveta's forehand was devastating. Will be difficult for Daniela next round.

Martina said something to Sveta when they shook hands. Sveta went "Huh?" Martina repeated it but I think she was drowned out by the applause and the umpire speaking because Sveta walked off with an extremely puzzled look on her face.

Martina definitely said something to Sveta at the umpire's chair. Sveta leaned in smiling and Martina said whatever she did and walked off whilst Sveta's smile turned to a confused look of "what the hell was all that about?" Who knows.

You could not see what was said.
And it didn't look Kuznetsova was shocked in any way. The slight face she made could have been nothing to do with what Martina said, just acknowledging the tough match, thinking Sharapova in the final etc. Martina did not look like she said anything bad. Looked happy after losing the match even.
Stop making up things out of thin air.

I'm happy if Martina is happy with her match. Still not seen it, but from the comments it was a good match. Kuzzy's forehand is deadly.
It's very very positive if Martina's serve has improved as it looks like. Makes future matches much more easy. Good luck to Martina for YEC and now go Kuzzy and win this tournament! :)
