Yes, the courts do seem slow...
Martinez has no pressure on Casanova though... if Casanova loses, it will only be because of her errors...
She does seem to play better now [Casanova], I really like her style, she hits so hard!

Martinez leads Casanova 6-4 1-3

YESSSSSSSSS!!! Any win at all for Conchita especially in straight sets is just SIMPLY FABULOUS.

Thanks TBE for some details on the match. I think more players should hit the occasional off-pace serve up the tee. I do it a lot by hitting very short with side spin that makes the ball jump an extra meter away from the right forehand in the AD Court. Usually I do it after having hit some bigger body serves which get the returner to back up. Then I follow it up with the short, spinny soft serve up the tee and it TOTALLY FOOLS THEM! It's fun and a free point for me. Even if they get to it they are usually out of balance and make an error or a weak reply. CONCHITA is SMART. Too bad she is just too ripe and out of shape these days to be a real threat. :D

I watched this game on Eurosport and have to say both girls played really well. Casanova 'll be a great player. She's a potential girl but quite young yet.

Congrats Conchita.

17. I HATE Slow hardcourts. It is so stupid. Okay clay can be slow but indoors should be fast as lightning.

mboyle,

SLOW hard courts help JENNIFER CAPRIATI. Jennifer is VERY consistent and her groundstrokes are quite good so she does not need the help that a fast court provides a player. Other players need help from the surface but Jenn has so much power and great wheels. She plays great on slow surfaces IMO.

well, we can say that Conchita is back for her old form.

her chances vs Jennifer are little but she already beat her a lot so I wound't be surprised if Conchita wins.

If Conchi doesn't get injured, she will be a real threat next year to top 20 players.

IS CONCHITA TURNED 30?
HOW LONG WILL SHE STAND TO PLAY VS TOP PLAYERS?

Conchita is 30 and 7 months. I had no doubt about the outcome of this result. Conchita's tennis is still too awkward for young players that aren't used to her game. Unless they can overpower and be consistent, then they usually lose patience with the 8th moonball or 7th delicate mid-court slice. Conchita forces you to do something with the ball. If you're not totally confident in yourself, then you end up playing totally into Conchita's hands i.e. you're also 6 feet behind the baseline.

Well played Conchi! Vamos! Good Luck against Jen C. You know she is not 100% and *hates* your game. Kick her ass and make our day.
