Well, unexpected ones at least.

Baush & Lomb Championships
SF Elena DEMENTIEVA RUS 6-3 4-6 5-7

Sparkassen Cup
F Anastasia MYSKINA RUS 6-3 3-6 3-6

Justine does not like to play longrallied consistent tennis that players like Elena and Anastasia offers, does she?

I'm thinking that those scorelines are quite similar!

she had a matchpoint versus Elena
She was mentally tired during leipzig (cfg Kim in toronto)
Justine doesn't like players with a weak 1st or 2nd serve (dementieva, kapros, myskina...)

I'll admit something. I'm actually a bit 'afraid' for today's match against bovina.
She isn't one with a weak serve ( :eek: ) but I don't know, I have this bad feeling, I hope I'm wrong!!
Justine looks a bit tired, and Lena is playing great...

About those two losses against the russians...
I think you're right about Justine havin problems
with players who have a weak second serve,
why do you think she lost to Venus the last 7 times the played ;) (just kiddin, Venus is one of my favourites, actually :eek: :D

Well, Elena played the best tennis of her life in AI
Loss against Myskina was kinda unexpected, but Justine was mentally tired in Leipzig winning 22 straight matches :worship:, so now I'm over that loss ;)

yes, remember Davenport in 1998, she was just so mentally tired in Filderstadt in 1998 that Testud beat her. Davenport had a strong summer that year as well. Then she came back to Zurich a week later to win:D
