Tammy failed to use POTW last time, so hopefully she pays attention here ;) Due to her run to the Australian Open final, she now has 3 aces to use in Amelia Island :yeah:

Nastya Excited to be Back on the Clay and Talks about this Season
http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/545/r1848440855.jpg
Amelia Island, Florida.
Anastasia Myskina, the #1 player in the world and reigning US Open Champion, won 2 matches on Friday to make it to the Semifinals of the Bausch and Lomb Championships.
Rain held up play yesterday, forcing Nastya to play 2 matches today. In the 1st round, Nastya went up against new comer Bojana Jovanovski. Nastya bossed her around the court, nailing backhand winners all over the court. Won 6-3 6-2.
"Bojana said how she was excited, I hope I didn't ruin it for her. I played clean tennis. Once I stepped foot out on the clay for the first time this season, I knew this is where I am going to shine. I was just hitting the ball so cleanly today, I just was hitting such great shots and there was nothing she could do."
Nastya then got the night session match against another new comer Justine Henin, but her coach is far from a new comer, having coached newly retired Krajicek.
"Justine will be tough to beat, she just eased past Aussie Open champ Spears. I just have to play my game and I think I should come away with the win."
Justine and Nastya were in a slugfest as both ladies played damn near flawless beautiful clay tennis. Using angles, drop shots, and power, the match was perfect and ended perfectly as well with Nastya the winner. Nastya clinched the win with a rare journey to the net as she hit a volley winner into the open court after taking Justine off court with a great cross court backhand angle dragging her out wide.
http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/545/capt_4d37bfe08ea849e2926d2206d17e9bc3_britain_tenn is_eastbourne_llp103.jpg
"Justine is definitely a fine player and one of maybe 3 ladies who are a threat to me this clay season. I was just too good today, I feel the practice from earlier today against Bojana really helped me be ready for Justine."
When asked about how she feels about playing Watson next, Nastya replied, "Who? Never heard of her. I might have played her, but doesn't ring a bell. Clearly she can play since she beat Vera who is always a tough player. So I am expecting a big challenge from her."

Nastya looks about her past season and goals for this season:
"Last season was almost perfect. I really went on a roll from Sydney to Paris. But then there were tough times like losing the Roland Garros Final, the rough grass season and hardcourt season. But I followed up those bad times with a US Open win which definitely made up for the Roland Garros loss. Then hit the #1 rank which I have held since I think Antwerp during the indoor season. I never thought I would get to #1 because of my inconsistency on the tour, but last season I was just focused and did I think fairly consistent. I ended the year #1, so that is just great. For this season, my goals were to win the slams. I set out really to win the Australian and Wimbledon to complete the Career Grand Slam, but the Aussie didn't go the way I wanted it to. But after that loss, it just makes me that more hungry to win Roland Garros again. I love Roland Garros, everything about it. Every year I bring some of my best tennis, I just hope this year will be my year again to shine there."
Nastya takes on Heather Watson in the Semifinals tomorrow. Nastya is looking to win her 8th title, 2nd of the season and 2nd title here in Amelia Island.
