he really is :lol: :p



nut I have said it since the first tournament, Dechy is the best you will ever see. Its all about whether she commits to the tour or not. She has been ready for the YEC since Wimbledon and despite all the talk she did about YEC, she has delievered the goods each time.

It's not a "great win". It is called having four aces indoors. :o

That is what it gets you. Titles. But for me, they will forever be hollow titles. :lol:

Baltacha has to prove herself on some real surfaces first. I respect Venus, because she did that before she dominated indoors at least.

Medina
Oct 27th, 2007, 12:06 AM
I know, it was kind of Bad putting 4 aces on indoor, because it was the indoor season. Lets see how she ends up Next season..

Vamos.
Oct 27th, 2007, 12:13 AM
:shrug:...I would have done the same. It was the obvious, and right, thing to do.

I just wouldn't call any win indoors with four aces "amazing". Or even good. It is just what will happen. The natural course of events. Getting to two Finals in the indoor season with ZERO Aces is much more amazing. :drool:

Medina
Oct 27th, 2007, 01:23 AM
So true, But i found it a bit lame, but people have mixed oponions. I would of thought using a bit of common sense she would of put 4 in Grass. :o. But its great to debut and get 2 tournaments. I cant get any clay tournament in the second queen of clay, after Bartoli :o
