The woman is very talented.. I just love her fight and game. No one really expects much from her...

Anyone else hoping she takes this title?

Btw, funny how it takes two unexpected finalists to produce the first good RG final in what seems forever.

She is really fighting out there and has full belief in her game.

Playing some really smart tennis. Go Franny get your prize!

Pluss Italian Tennis Federation are paying another 400,000 on top if she wins today! wow.

I love how the Italian players are on the stands going NUTS for her country mate!!! :hearts:

Can you imagine the Serbians doing that? Or the Russians for Sharapova? :lol:

I couldn't care less about this final

but I still want Schiavone to win it to stop the Stosur hype on this board

Yes
Probably more than will admit it.

They are don't want to get their hope up because Stosur is the overwheming favorite.

Why not? She's playing great tennis.

She's played amazing so far :bounce:. Her backhand has impressed me the most :worship:. I would love to have even 1/10th the spin she puts on that thing, not to mention the placement, deepness and everything else she puts into it :lol:

Ivanovic and Jankovic would most likely support the other's opponent! :lol:

I love how she's playing, but I still think it's Stosur who should take the title.

I dont really care who wins, I think they're both deserving. It would be nice for Fran though, I dont think she'll have this opportunity again and I think Sam will sometime.

True :lol:

I've seen Pennetta and Garbin there. Don't know if there are more Italian players on the stands.

I started the match rooting for Stosur but as it went on I've been leaning more and more towards Fran. I love what she's doing out there.
It's one of those matches where it's a shame only one can win because I'd love for both to do it now.



I am.

Well it's not a given that doubles success = good volleys. Stosur's serve ws obviously a huge advantage for her in doubles.

And volleying in doubles is alot different to singles. In doubles matches she volleys fine.

It seems like they watch a lot of tape of Stosur and figured out her tendacies.
At least for the moment. Fran has managed to stay in the match

Why not? She's playing great tennis.

Yes but Stosur beat Henin, Serena,Jankovic back to back. That's worth one maybe two majors:tape:

See that's what I fear. I'm not too sure Sam will have this opportunity again if she loses. Having had the tournament of her life, best form she's ever been in this year, to then lose to Schiavone in the final. Would she be able to recover from that? :shrug:

Exactly. I can't see her beating those players again next year. Bound to be ready and out for blood and Stosur probably won't play THIS well again time and time again.

With your italian flag?

That volley she just hit was more a doubles volley, reacting to it and closing the net rather than having to approach and set it up herself.

im not really i think sam deservs it more but i won't be devastated if fran wins ill be happy 4 her she's 29 in a slam final 4 the 1st time and will make top 10 for 1st time.

Franny.... wouldnt it be just awsome for her to win this.

Elisse

healthy dementieva would beaten both their asses -.-


But she didn't at RG this year...

And more importantly, Francesca did something that Dementieva has never achieved...to play awesome tennis in a Slam final and became a Slam Champion!!! :worship:

So, this time....it's all about Francesca, and she deserves full credit for her great achievement!!!! :hearts:
