After leading 63 21 and Dinara looking out of it, Elena's game totally slipped, made too many UE

So happy for Dinara though, beating 3 top 10 players from a set down is really impressive. :yeah:

Elena :sad:

No regret. Dinara deserves it. Still a very good week until the final. Could have played better but it will be in RG :p

Dinara's dropshots were just amazing today :eek:

I thought Dinara would have given up at 6/3 2/1 after she lost another game on Elena's serve, wasting 3 BPs. But she managed to regroup once more. Congrats Dinara :)

Totally deserved. From beginning to end, Safina has been the class player this week and it is good to see her great tennis has been rewarded with the title. Loved the dropshots, loved the fight and resiliance, loved the crispness of the groundies, both forehand and backhand, and also loved the aftermatch interviews, Dinara shined as a really sweet down to earth girl.

Congrats Dinara. :woohoo:

Sucks that Elena lost... I thought she had control of the match but made too many errors in the 2nd set. :sad:

But Dinara played exceptional tennis in the 3rd and deserved the win, especially considering she took out the two most likely Roland Garros winners (IMO)along the way. So congrats to her, I'm glad to see her again playing the way someone with her talent should be playing.

nicidle
May 11th, 2008, 02:21 PM
Elena.. :mad::(
in the 2nd set she was just longing for the 3rd set..she just gave it up.. and thought that safina would falter in the 3rd...
and she never come back.

she is satisfied with that?

:sad: Sad for Elena, I'm sure she'll win in Istanbul though! And pity she's not playing in Roma next week - she has QF pts to defend, plus I think she would really have had a good shot at the title. Also, the end of next week's rankings are the one's they'll be using for RG seedings, but she won't fall out of the top 8 by then I'm sure.:)

Elena :sobbing: thought you had it 63 21 up :hug: shes played well this week though, taking out Jankovic and Ivanovic give her lots of confidence for Roland Garros, its just a shame she couldnt finish the job off. Glad shes not playing Rome so she can rest physically and mentally and prepare for Istanbul and Roland Garros. Great week anyway Lena :yeah:

Exactly. I'm not really upset. At least it was a three-set match, and plus Safina hasn't won a title in a while, so I look at it as it was Safina's turn to win a big break through. Still, I would have liked for Elena to win, but oh well. :) You rock Safina! :worship: Her play truly was invigorating. Contrary to some, I love Safina's grunt.

I am very sad. This would have been huge for Elena. Title #10, third Tier I, goes into Paris as a little more than a dark horse, improves her record in finals to 10-11, and wins her first big title on red clay after going 0-2 in big clay finals before (Charleston, Paris, now Berlin). And I'm upset she lost a three-set match, especially one where she was up a set, but that's just because I'm a stat whore and Elena's good in tight situations... Elena doesn't look that happy with the runner-up trophy, TBH. I hope this gives her drive for Paris.

All of my disappointment aside, Dinara deserved this title, beating three really great players, and Azarenka is no slouch either. I really like Dinara, but the final came at the expense of my favorite, o course. I'll get over it soon enough. Fantastic victory overall. Keep it up in Rome and Paris, then move on from there. :yeah:

But it is great to see Dinara come through (particuarly as she had a terrible start to the year); but probably it was the cherry on top of the cake and cements her wins over Serena and Justine.

:eek: Such a great week for Dinara!! :bigclap: I so wanted her to win the final 'cause she deserved it after beating Justine and Serena back to back, but I didn't think she could do it, (I thought she might run out of steam! :o ) Sorry Dinara - CONGRATULATIONS!! :worship:

:) great job Dinara. Elena, better luck next time.

Hopefully, this puts Safina on the road to realizing and actualizing her talent because she is definitely a top 10, possibly future top 5 player IMO>

I was rooting against her for all the matches that she played, seeing that I'm a fan of Juju, Rena, Vika and Lena! But it was really good to see her win. It's the first time I've been happy seeing a player I dislike win a title.

Congrats.

As always , Elena is the best rival in a important Final . Everybody on tour wants to face her

Yep..no better opponent in a big match than Elena.

Safina! congratulations on your first Tier One Title...
I really admire your courage and enjoyed your interview for your no-nonsense and upfront yet humourous response...very few players on tour are like that...ALL THE BEST in Rome!
