Not sure if this has been discussed yet, but all four of the finalists have won at least one major. That could mean that the nervousness factor won't be as great as it would be for a first-time finalist or someone who hasn't won anything yet, and we may just be in for some really great tennis.:bounce:

Much as I do hope you're right, last year's women's final also featured 2 Slam winners.

I hope it's a great match, and i hope Sveta wins, but let's not jinx anything ;)

I meant Federer/Nadal/Henin-Hardenne/Kuznetzova, but you knew that I'm sure. I'm going out for breakfast tomorrow morning to catch the 9AM start on a big HDTV screen (probably with a bloody mary in hand). It just started raining here again, and if it continues tomorrow, this'll be a whole week without playing tennis- TORTURE for me when a major is being played. I always want to get out there and hit my backhand like Justine does!:lol:

Friend, I'm not THAT dense ;)

(I just didn't think the men's finalists have any affect on the women's final, and vice versa)

Rain? Yeah, we got that, too. So much they've actually shut down some public athletic facilites until the ground dries out. Lucky for tennis players who at least don't have to worry about THAT.

Wouldn't it be fun if they played the women's final just prior to the men's at Roland Garros, and had a woman in the chair for the Federer/Nadal match?:lol:

I can see the French response now. It'd be Bastille Day all over again!
