Kristina :hug: Great run though, she's been playing good tennis these last few weeks :) Takes the pressure off of her Strasbourg finalist defense too.

Anabel :) Congratulations

I also wondered why Anabel isn't playing in Barcelona, I mean it's great she won the title here but she could've won easily in Barcelona as well. As for the match today, Anabel was playing her good clay court game while Barrois just couldn't get it together, that was a GS-Safina final performance, I wonder how she beat Safarova, Bartoli, Kleybanova and Vesnina :o

I wonder if Anabel will thank for the crowd support during her speech, because this was certainly the worst attendance I've ever seen in a final, even Guangzhou was better than this. Just sad that Estoril can't get a better entry list, I thought the new place in the calendar this year would be a huge booster for the entry list.

If Joćo Lagos spent 1/10 of what he spends to get some of the guys he gets in here, he'd easily get a top 15/10 player :shrug: I mean...Didn't he pay half a million or sth to get Federer here last year? :lol:

Congrats on the title Anabel :D

Part of her speech: "it's nice to have a tournament here. We live in the same island and we are almost the same country, so I hope to come back for many years"

priceless :bigcry:

Anyway, congrats on your 10th title :yeah:

What a bad match....:o just bad.

Barrois was a failure, she played much better throughout the week. Dramabel just played her usual self, very high %...

AMG injured her back at 4-1 first set. Got 2 medical time-outs...

She actually talked about that during her speech. She said that her injury had gone worse in the last two points of the match and that she was grateful it had ended right there

I think that Medina Garrigues won because Barrois played horrible rather than because she would have played particularly well herself
anyway - still congrats to the tenth title

actually I did (most of the time)
I mean I did not say anything like it wasn't deserved, it is just hard to deny that Barrois played horrible and IMHO this was the reason Medina won

Barrois just couldn't get it together, that was a GS-Safina final performance

It's sort of a myth that Safina had these huge meltdowns in her Slam final appearances. She just got completely outplayed by a much better player in all of them. Safina didn't really have a fifth gear - she went through a patch in which she played at a quite high average level and won a lot, but her best game was always clearly inferior to the very best of the true Slam contenders.

I wonder if Anabel will thank for the crowd support during her speech, because this was certainly the worst attendance I've ever seen in a final, even Guangzhou was better than this.

Yes, it was an embarrassment. Something like 100 people in attendance, no more, in a stadium that can hold more than 5.000.

Just sad that Estoril can't get a better entry list, I thought the new place in the calendar this year would be a huge booster for the entry list.

The Estoril Open's current slot in the calendar has actually killed it. With Madrid's qualies starting on Friday, and the MD on Saturday, nobody wants to stay here for too long as it will hamper their chances of doing well in Madrid. We can never be sure if any of the top seeds will put in their best effort from the 2R onwards.
