Scary but she fought like a champion she is, and what i liked more is that she went for it when she was break points down, she needs this attitude... I hope she improves her serve too ..
BTW unexpected tournament win for her, its amazing. :bounce:

Very, very impressive. Martina, you've definitely proved your doubters (and even some of your fans) wrong (I guess some former threads will be bumped up soon). As Spunky83 said, such a feat after many years away from the tour is one of the greatest ever. Given her results since she came back nobody will be able to call this a fluke. Congrats, Martina, once a genius always a genius. I think the bookies will have to reshuffle their odds in the upcoming major...

Whatever happens from here on in, she has already achieved more than enough in this comeback to prove the naysayers (ie. she couldnt handle the modern game) wrong.

No, Venus was tired, coming back from injury, rusty, still grieving for Yetunde, etc. :devil:

What a great moment for Martina. Her game is to fluid to remain on a horse. This is a great tennis moment for the WTA. Martina won another clay title. She was born to win on this surface. Roland Garros here we goooooooooooooooooooooo!!

Congrats to the Martians also. She was retired and now winning a Tier 1. What a feeling for all tennis fans. Old school Champs rule!

Finally just watched the final and was great to see how much better Martina played the final on Sunday than her match with Venus.

Dinara on the other hand, just didn't do enough today. She seemed pumped up later on in the match, but just couldn't keep the ball deep enough to outhit Martina.

She definitely lost a golden opportunity to really put herself on the tennis map.

Great week for both though.

no,concerning dinara,i dont see it your way.IMO,she played a big match,but the main reason she lost is:martina was just THAT touch better.thats all.
and she(dinara) will still turn some heads in the future,100%ly!!
