LOL Mauresmo and Schiavone are putting on an exhibition of topspin tennis! Enjoyable but frustrating at times...

That's not sweet tennis. Those high looping balls belong in juniors. The thing is. I'm listening to Tracy, and I don't need to turn down the volume. I wonder if commentators know they're taking away the fun of watching tennis, when they talk too much. I did not have to turn down Jen's match also.

Gee angles, smashes and volleys and lobs too - makes some players look very one dimensional. They can even do the boring fast serving stuff too. Francesca hit one at 116MPH.

There was a real competition out there in the background between Momo's power and Francesca's endurance but Momo iwas playing too well on her serve to let Francesca get it to a third set. Now if Momo hadn't had those few bad games she would look pretty good to win this USO playing that well - she might have won the olympics playing that well too.

Mansur must be giving up the racket soon - they both could have his job doing exhibitions in 5 years time.

Good match by both, especially match point which showed Schiavone's determination. I knew Mauresmo would lose that first break in the second because that's just how she is, great one game and terrible the next, but lots of respect to her for playing a damn good game and pulling off a convincing win against her opponent.

i love Schiavone's fighting spirit but at times she reminded me of Moonball Mama Martinez
