the crowd must have been thrilled! It's always sad when you buy a ticket and only see 45 minutes of tennis.

I wish I could have been there, instead of failing my History exam, and passing my media (okay maybe the Media exam was worth it!)

I saw all 4 of them and the 3 on Center took 8 hours :o
Tammy served for match in 2nd at 6-5, after Eleni blew 3 set pts on serve at 5-3 40-0, lost serve twice.

Elena D served for match at 6-5 in 2nd too, after Masha was 5-3 up.
Maria Vento served for match in 3rd at 5-4 as well.

pfff at Elena! My god! But I have a feeling that Shinobu would have def. her if they had met (Asagoe won last time).

Im really also starting to like Shinobu I think I will start as her on my WTA computer game. I started as Stevenson, but after her behavior I do not want to play as her anymore.
