I really feel Mary can -indeed, should -beat Patty!! She seems to be really on form, playing in her favourite tournament!

But a couple of complaints: Eurosport haven't shown a single point of today's match in their news programmes tonight. And the official Roland Garros website has had no Mary interviews yet the whole tournament...WHY?!!

i watched her from the first set being led 5-3 and the terrific comeback. :D
and although she said she is now playing better than her glorious day in 00.
but I'm not convincing by her form today. she has made many stunning shots.
but too many unforced error as well. she did nothing much on the return and a bit of hesitation and nervous.
i would say she's more like the old version of hers in 97-98 but what is obviously improved is her net play and her power. her forehand is sooo huge. :eek: once she get the chance to hit she just fire it away.
the people at the pub ( i was at the pub) who's rooting for vera were like "oops" or "shit" everytime mary got the short ball and aim for winner. they knew that she's gonna hit big and vera would lose the point. :yeah:
we are all having fun watching this match.

But hey... MARY WON A TIE-BREAK!!!!!!

Yes you're right !

THAT'S AWESOME !!!

I was so sad when she didn't break at 5 games all, and then 0-2 in the tiebreaks !!!
But she seems to love to be led in tie breaks (remember Koukalova in S Hertogenbosch ...) to finish by winning them !

A good Mary, a good tennis, a good Vera (she didn't cry all her tears, she stayed focus and agressive ! Not a bad Vera !), a good crowd "Je t'aime Mary" or "T'es la plus belle !" :lol: Too good :hearts:

Hope Mary will be able to play her tennis and beat Patty ... :lick:

I watched Mary and I'm very impress about her match and her mental, I read an article,

Mary said she's in a good shape but she's feeling something strange.
For 5 years she has been playing with "somebody else's body" she's now trying to play with her new "old" body, she's moving herself faster, hitting the ball very hard like before and she needs times to get used to it.

Yesterday Guy Forget confirmed that Mary was the player who's hitting the ball the most stronger, and today during Dechy's match he talked about Fed cup, and he said Nathalie played single because Mary and Amelie was injured, (Nathalie hates clay).

The crowd was great with Mary, and Vera didn't appreciate it I think ....
At least now she will know that she better be nice when she plays a french player, the crowd didn't appreciate the reaction she had against the ball boy... and she heard it.
Like Wizzy said, some guys screamed to Mary, would you marry me, or I love you, it was funny and Mary appreciated it.

Thank you Saby for that piece.

I am so glad that the crowd as so much with Mary. They help her so much right now I think.

Hi Saby if I was one of the boys there, I am sure that I might have screamed something like that LOL
