Two great wins for Schiavione in a row, but neither of them count for the rankings, such a shame.

Still on serve in the men's match.

Gambill leads 6-5*

It'll probably be a tie break.

Davide had a break point against Gambill, but in the end Gambill managed to hold serve.

Now Davide held serve and leads 7-6 3-2*

Arne, it certainly would help Belgium if Italy won.

And Davide broke and now leads 7-6 4*-2! Wow!<br />To think Italy only just qualified for the Hopman cup. This could be quite an upset!

So what they look at when the 2 first countries have the same amount of points?

The amount of matches won or the winner of those 2 countries in their meeting?

gentenaire
Jan 2nd, 2002, 12:06 PM
If Belgium loses 1-2 to the USA, there'll be three countries tied: Belgium, USA and Italy. I don't know what counts.

You're right, Arne. Anything can happen. We still have to play France and the USA. But this Italian win is certainly making things more interesting and exciting.

all credit to Francesca... but i'm more interested to know what happens to the USA team now? are the chances of making the final almost diminished?! wow...my heart really sank when i saw that Monica had lost... i thot she was having a smashing start to the new year... maybe this will wake her up for the Oz Open!

Francesca was playing very well!! Before the match started, I thought it would very likely a Monica's victory. After the 3rd game of the match, Francesca got injuried... then my mind was saying, "It's all Monicas now!!" However, who would have thought that after being 4-1 down, Francesca could fought back and won the next 6 games in a row to take the 1st set!!! I really didn't expect such an exciting match between Monica and Francesca! After Monica took the 2nd set, I still thought it would be her victory since Francesca got an injury on her leg... But Francesca.. wow.. just amazing!! Very strong, giving her 100% to fight for the battle... and she got what she deserved!!

Victories over Kim and Monica... what a fantastic start of 2002 for Francesca!! Another talented up-and-comer - Francesca Schiavone!!! Always happy to see another strong and talented player to come up in the tennis world!!!
