Venus Williams Fights For Year Ending Championship Invitation

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/VenusWilliams.jpg

Currently ranked no. 10 in the rankings, Venus Williams is looking to make a move on the top players during the indoor season.

" I knew all I had to do was stick with the top players throughout the season and just wait for indoors, a surface I totally rule on! I have high hopes for this tournament in my singles and doubles play with Mashona; and for the remainder of the indoor season. I won't be satisfied with just good showings, I need another title on the year and to make the year-ending championships."

Mashona Looking for Big Break

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/FlamingoSpice/mash.jpg

With the ATC Tour winding down, American Mashona Washington is looking to make her breakthrough on the indoor courts of the Proximus Diamond Games in Antwerp, Belguim. The young gunner is coming off an impressive quarterfinal appearance at the U.S. Open.

Washington's first round match will be against Australian, Alicia Molik. This will be the first meeting between the two. Washington is very optimistic about the match and feels very confindent in her strategy.

"It will most likely be a tough match. I feel that I have a slight edge on her. I really have nothing to loose, she's much higher ranked then I am. I think she's got more on the line than I do."

Indeed Molik does. She'll be needing some good results within the next couple of tournaments if she wants to qualify for the Year End Championship tournament. Alicia is currently ranked 11th behind Mashona's doubles partner/countrywoman Venus Williams. Molik and Williams are seperated by a mere 22 points.

"I would definently love to help Venus any way I can. Hopefully I'll be able to get this win for her so she can get a bigger lead, also, it would be nice to get some good results in this big tournament."

The young American is still looking for her maiden title and hopes that within the last couple tournaments of the season she can find it before the season comes to an end.

"Of course every woman on tour wants to win a title, so the competition is tough. I will just have to go out and play every match as if it were a finals match. I still have a couple aces up my sleeve so the others better watch out."

Myskina(7) def. Pennetta
6-3 5-7 7-6(2) :eek:

Nastya once again just edges a 4-acer, her second set needs some adjustments :p But other than that she's in great form :yeah: Flav :hug:

Mauresmo(8) def. V. Williams
5-7 7-5 6-4 :eek:

Not a surprise that a seed beats a non-seed, but Amelie had 0 aces compared to Vee's 4 :eek: Momo's now looking good for the YEC, Vee needs to finish her opponents off quicker, but she can still make Madrid with a good run in Moscow and Quebec.

Vamos.

Myskina: Being biatch is advantage in tennis

http://estaticos03.cache.el-mundo.net/elmundodeporte/especiales/2004/05/roland/albumjornada11/myskina-ap.jpg

Q:Hi, Anastasia.I believe that's your first interview after the US open final?

Hello.Yes, it's my first one since then.I know I should keep in touch with the press, but I just couldn't handle all the things at once.But you have me here doing an interview now, so... *smiles*

Q:It's your third consecutive final.You've played a LOT if tennis last few weeks.

Yes, I did.It's awful.No, really, I enjoy it, that's why I'm playing it.I know I can act a bit biatchy, but that's my advantage.People don't like that.But overall, yeah, I enjoy it, so I am very happy that I was able to reach that.

Q:Maybe it's some kinda record?

Yeah, I believe it is.Or maybe not.

Q:You weren't very happy with your game at the US open.Are you happy now?

No, I'm still not happy.Why would I play like that if I can play better.Why would I win in 3 sets if I can win in 2?So, I just want to make the most of my talent that I believe in.And it kinda works, but I still have to become consistent, which I am not.

Q:I still haven't ask you about the open...

Well, then ask me.

Q:How do you feel as a Grand Slam finalist.

Not good at all.I would feel good if I would win it. *smiles* But if I look things from another side I like the feeling.I feel I belong here.In the top 8.

Q:So, your thoughts for todays Final.

I don't want to be the finalist again.This time I want to win!But Brandi is in form, and it will be tough to beat her.But I hope I can win!

Q:Thanks and good luck then!

Thanks.Bye!

Wow!Well done for the fairly newcomer.:yeah:
Nastya :awww: :hug: It's really unlucky to lose 3 finals.
But you'll probably be in front of Misa now for YEC.:eek:
:sad:
Everyone who is just behind me will surely pass Misa for YEC.:bigcry:
