I saw her match against Llagostera Vives, and was impressed by how she thrashed her 6-1, 6-1. Vives was the player the took a set of Hingis at Gold Coast, so naturally I assumed that she would trouble Hingis, but was surprised how she lost by the same score she beat Vives by. Anyway, it's good to see she's in the final at Las Vegas, good to see another Viking doing well.

I'm sure Emma is just delighted to have your respect, but this should go in the Las Vegas thread!

Oh, didn't you know, it's not possible for our friend to post in a thread he/she didn't start. But thank you for your helpful suggestion anyway. :)

Emma is a good player. Early on against Hingis, she was the aggressor and I was suprised to see her hitting so well from all corners of the court throughout the match. I think she's got a very good future ahead of her.

All I know about her is that she beat Leanne last year in the Qualies at her home WTA Tour tourney 6-3 7-5. And also her last name is pronounced weird from how its spelt.

she outplayed peng shuai at the US Open... i saw the third set live there and she was just not making any errors at all, getting every ball back, and hitting winners too

she just outplayed a player that was on a bit of a hot streak

Yeah, apparently a lot of Swedish names are weird in how they're spelt as to how they're spelt

consider a different language and a different perspective and the weirness might be on the other side

weird in how they are spelt as to how they are spelt...hmm I assume you mean as to how they are SAID... and in that language, the name wouldn't necessarily be weird. Sure it might be "weird" to an English speaker, but then English names are probably "weird" to Finnish speakers...

Well, I'm pretty sure it has actually Finnish origin.
Laine means wave btw.

She was born in Sweden though, wasn't she?

You shouldn't assume that she would trouble Hingis, as Martina was playing a lot better than in Gold Coast. The player cycle thing is very confusing and unpredictable. :confused:

BTW, please don't have a go at seles, davenport, for this thread. I mean, it wasn't a completely useless topic, was it? Although, I definitely agree he/she needs to not make so many posts... ;)

Her father was a top Finnish ice hockey player who at some point of his career played as a professional in the Swedish ice hockey league, Elitserien. Yes, it is very possible that Emma and her sister were born in Sweden (too lazy to check it!).

Pronunciation:
Lain - exactly as the word line"
the last letter e - as the "e" is pronounced in the work "envy"

Oh, okay. My mistake, so she is not a Viking.

Emma's sister Essi was born in Lahti Finland. Soon after her birth Erkki (Eki) left Finland to play for Färjestad in Karlstad, Sweden. During these years in Karlstad, Emma was born. Few years later Eki returned back to his hometown Lahti, Finland and is still living there by the beautiful lake of Vesijärvi.

Cool! Thanks for clearing it up! :wavey:
