Player Of The Week

http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/5686/315ri5.jpg

Lindsay Davenport

I'm giving it to Lindsay again so everyone in the field has at least 1 ace, and also she made the QFs last week and everyone else had at least 2 aces :lol:

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/photos/150x200/30200.jpg

Well Kim is the obvious favourite, her strategy has been working against almost everyone, she has to watch out for a few that can hang with her though, and I feel that her opponents are beginning to work out her plan, Kirilenko only has 1 ace, but her points have been successful, Maria is highly unpredictable however, so any results is possible, and Capriati has been very solid, she could take the title with a good draw.

The Contenders

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/photos/150x200/200137.jpg

"Queen" Dechy has been in erratic form and this is her last chance to get a good result on one of her strong surfaces, she has the game, but she's maybe lacking some confidence, Pennetta's points have really impressed me, she's definitely one to watch, and we can't discount Tammy, she won the Australian Open with 1 ace, so she can certainly win this with 2.

Mashona Speaks Out

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

This morning before her round one match against Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo, American Mashona Washington made a statement about her season and her thoughts about her round one match here at Roland Garros.

"Well, it's been a horrible season. I've only won one damned match. But clay isn't my best surface so I'm not too worried about it. Clay is for fat cows that don't move well on hard court so they slide around on clay. When the hard court season comes around I'll be knocking bitches out left and right. As far as my match against Maria, oh well, can't really do anything about the draw. Let's just pray that she get's explosive diarrhea before the match so I get the walk over."

Vamos.
Feb 26th, 2008, 08:49 PM
Press release from Mauresmo's agent:

"Amelie would like to thank her legions of fans for the continued support in helping her through this difficult stage of her life. She is now close to full recovery but feels it is best to delay her triumphant return to the tour by at least one more week. She, therefore, would like to end the speculation right now of the chances of her playing this week in Paris. She will not be. However, a prompt return to the tour will begin in time for the grass season where Amelie is confident that her full potential will be realised.

Mauresmo has given a lot to this tour and has already created something of a legacy and she would publicly like to thank the tour director for being so patient in waiting for her return.

Thank you."

Spaniard Sizzles In Paris

http://www.fedcup.com/shared/medialibrary/image/gallery/FC_1443_gallery.JPG
Paris, France
Maria Sanchez Lorenzo finally shows us why clay is her favorite surface by making the Quarterfinals of the French Open.
Yesterday, Maria had to take on Mashona Washington of USA. On Suzanne Lenglen, Maria handled the pressure of her first slam well to take the early break and lead 4-2 over Mashona. Maria consolidated that break with a quick hold to be up 5-2. At 5-2, Maria used her speed and power to break for the first set 6-2. In the second set, Maria again took an early lead and eventually a 5-3, but Maria choked a bit as Mashona used her experience to fight back and take the set 7-5. The third set, Maria fought hard to take another 5-3 lead, but once again got broken right back to be leveled at 5-5. Maria didn't let this get her down as she was able to hold easily to lead 6-5. Mashona served at 5-6 and saved 2 match points, but Maria slapped a passing shot to win the match 6-2 5-7 7-5.
Today, Maria went in huge underdog against current #3, former #1, Severine Bremond of France. Maria came out on court with no nerves as she used her backhands of both sides to smash winners all over the court. Severine, who isn't good on clay, tried to move Maria around and dictate, but Maria fought hard and got everything back causing errors from Severine. Maria broke for the second time to take the first set 6-2. Set 2, Maria was just flawless as she hit the lines perfectly. But when Severine was down 5-0, the crowd cheered her on and got her pumped up as she fought back like a champion to take the second set 7-5. Maria conquered her nerves in set 3, as she went up 5-2 and won the match with a backhand winner down the line to make her first Quarterfinal on tour.
In the Quarters she will take on the 8th seed Jelena Jankovic, who beat Maria's doubles partner, Gisela Dulko.

First upset of the day, and what a good one it was for the French/Aussie duo to pull off their first doubles win of the season. They played amazing today and although they play very risky, it suits them. Ana/Ai had a 5-0 lead in the third set and wasted so many match points. By the end of the third set, they were just too tired and caved in to the pressure that was being put on them by Tati/Alicia. Congrats ladies, good luck in the semi-finals! Ana/Ai :hug:

Lena/Nic certainly got lucky they were able to squeak by Jelena and Martina. Jelena just came from a tough triple set loss in singles against MASL and just wasn't physically up to the challenge. If Elena/Nic want to win the title, they need to be more aggressive or else Nat/Momo will destroy them. However, a win is a win, and Lena/Nic seal their ticket to the finals.

(2) Elena Dementieva/Nicole Vaidisova def. (1) Nathalie Dechy/Amelie Mauresmo

7-6(5), 3-6, 6-4

:eek::worship: What a way to end the doubles portion of the French Open. The top two teams in the world going at it and it was a great match. Unfortunately there could only be one winner, but congrats on Nathalie and Amelie for making it this far, and we wish the best for Nat in her retirement. And now, congrats to Elena Dementieva & Nicole Vaidisova, the French Open Doubles Champions!!
