She has to get past Hingis to make the quarters. If she gets to the QF, she'll have a great chance to make the semis. It's the easiest quarter by far.

Anna played really well and of course I have no problem to accept this. So once again, congratulations to Anna for winning the Ordina Cup.

Great match from Anna. She knows how tough it is playing against a great competitor like Jelena, she coped well with all the rain delays and she didn't let losing the second set get her down.

And it's about time this message board gave Anna her dues. She's in the Top 10 for a reason.

Wally1,
Agreed that we had two good finals before Wimby. Hopefully, Wimby will produce good matches also. The WTA bosses have to be glad that the top players were scheduled differently this week because Eastbourne and s-Hertogenbosch had some great matches between their upper echelon players.

[Chak] Firmly (?) established as the russian # 3, she gets hardly any ink, but is always a joy to watch.

Too right on all three counts.

I understand that people ignore Safina because of her unglamourous appearance and arguably boring game, but Chak?

4-0 in finals:worship: :worship:

I hadn't even thought of that. Our Chak is one tough cookie.

Jankovic plays on Monday, but luckily for her it's against a Brit WC she can beat with one hand tied behind her back (plus there's a chance Monday will be rained out). But I'm still worried. People told me she was looking spent even on the SF. Playing this wasn't a very wise move to say the least - the field turned out to be as strong, if not stronger, than the one at Eastbourne. On grass, Chak/Danka >>>>>>>>> Peer/Vaidisova.

As for the trophy, I like it. It's different from the usual tacky crystal vases, brass salad bowls and tin pots. I was just looking at the photos at Yahoo Sports and it was a bit weird seeing Grasscourt King Ljubo kissing a little naked guy, but it's all fun.

Shame for Jelena, but she can't win all the grass court titles this year

:lol: Made me laugh because I imagined Jelena flying between Eastbourne and Holland to play both tournaments at the same time (maybe between rain delays?). You know she'd do it.

Excellent match. Whereas the other final today was a showoff at the net, this match was a battle on the baseline. It's funny to see Anna's transition from clay (on which she looked utterly useless) to grass where her superb placement and point construction should put her on the list of future contenders for Wimbledon (needs to improve that serve though). She can move her opponent around effortlessly by creating super angles and clean hitting with more flair than power. If she continues to play like this, she'll make Krajicek look like a fool should they meet in the third round next week. I think I found a replacement for Myskina who I also only enjoyed on grass or fast indoor surfaces.
Jelena played fine but looked mentally worn. But like always, she was gracious in defeat and all smiles. :)

Anna is 4-0 in finals, but it's because of who she played. She's 5-2 h2h with Jankovic. 4-0 with Petrova. 5-0 with AMG and 2-0 with Bardina.
So she's 16-2 against the players she met in finals.
Anna is very good at beating players she knows she can handle. She's won 34 matches this year, and she doesn't play every week.

This result almost makes up for Momo choking away the Eastbourne title.

I love Anna!! She is just as fun to watch as Jelena! I bet this match was a doozy!

Anna has recently done a good job of not retiring in matches when she's really not injured. If she keeps it up, she'll make my signature in no time. That, and not giving Sharapova a pass on clay.

Congrats to Anna on winning her 2nd title of 2007. She is a dangerous player on all surface, good luck at Wimbledon

Jelena :sad: she desperately needs some rest before she plays again on Mon. :help: Good Luck

Tank job by Jelena.

Jankovic for Wimbledon '07! Here's hoping she gets a crack at Serena! JANKOVIC DEF. FATTY 6-0 6-0 LOL. Serena would be feeling the after-effects of the several cheeseburgers she'd eaten prior to the match.

anna deserved the tittle, but jelena had two strappings on her leg, and wasn't moving at all, some points of hers were brilliant, and she was obviously taking caution before the Wimbledon, and played with about 60% of her best game. still she was a contender ( as she was down 0-5 in the first set, and got trough to a tie-brerak). i know it , 'cause i saw the match on tv.

Prob shouldn't have played Jelena. Has she not learned from others who played too much? Jelena Dokic, Martina Hingis (prior to 2002), Kim Clijsters are examples of players who burned out young. And funny enough, they all have somewhat similar games. I hate to blast a player fro playing a lot, but I feel that Jelena shouldn't ware herself out this year and then have a few bad years the following years to 2007.
