This win will move Sharapova from world #3 to world #2.

Mauresmo is the defending champian at the YEC so should Sharapova win the YEC and Mauresmo not make it beyond the semis then Sharapova should be world #1 heading into the 2007 season.

And I would say Sharapova would be the favourite for the Australian Open.

We are really,really thankful. But Martina really deserves her spot at YEC and gained the points on her own.

That was a Pyrrhic victory. Sharapova is dead tired now and will not make it to the title. Besides that this win lets Marti into YEC where Maria will suffer bitter defeat from her should they play there.

Exactly! She won two tournaments (incl. a Tier I), reached two Tier I finals. She deserved it.:angel: :hearts: :bounce: :bounce:

I hope every player who clinched a berth into the YEC will play the YEC.
I just don't feel Patty deserves to be there. She hasn't won a tourni all year. She still has a chance at Hasselt but I don't see her getting pass Kimmy.

Sharapova is just at another level right now.
Although I feel Patty could have rushed the net more in this match.
Petrova will definately do that if she plays Sharapova.

i think she'll be number one at the end of this season...

I’m so proud of you, Masha! Even being absolutely flat and exhausted you could still pull this match out against such a tricky top 10 player like Shnider. What a fighter you are, Masha! I love you more and more day by day!:hearts:

14-10 isn't that impressive, but then Masha just won a title last week, while Patty Punked in R1 of her home tournament. Fortunately, Sharky still had enough left to take out the trash. :yeah:

Wowm Patty fought hard. She never seems to win those "tough-battle" matches with higher ranked players. :scratch:

Well done Masha not producing her best but main thing done :)

There seems to be several reality disconnects here:

1. Nadia is playing at the top of her game, seems fresh and fully healed from her mid-summer injury. Pova is tired and has a foot problem. It's an "iffy" situation for Pova in tomorrow's match. She better bring her best serve game to have any chance for the title.

2. concerning rankings: Look only at the Race! If you look at the Tour Rankings, Ame is way ahead. This is not a realistic picture.

By the time the YEC starts, Ame drops way over 600 points earned at last year's Philly and YEC tournaments. Pova drops over 200 points for 2005 YEC.

JHH has a virtual lock on the Year End #1 spot. She gets it over Ame if she earns Quarter Final points at the YEC, even if Ame wins the YEC. And she gets it over Pova unless Pova wins the YEC and JHH is, at best, a semifinalist.

This win will move Sharapova from world #3 to world #2.

Mauresmo is the defending champian at the YEC so should Sharapova win the YEC and Mauresmo not make it beyond the semis then Sharapova should be world #1 heading into the 2007 season.

And I would say Sharapova would be the favourite for the Australian Open.

beeing favourite doesn't mean that she will win the ao ;) by monday she will move one spot but if she loses tommorow what separate her from justin it will be one point :rolleyes:

Lena D fans like myself constantly complain about our endless suffering, but I suspect being a fan of Schnyder is much worse, leading to clinical depression or suicidal tendencies.

ES1 picked up the match at 1-1 second set. Schnyder was playing so well, dictating the rallies at her leisure, closing out her own service games with ease, and Maria was clearly running on fumes. And then - BOOOM! - Patty implodes at the worst possible moment.

:woohoo:

Masha! :rocker2:

Congrats! It wasn't a bad match from her but she's obviously very exhausted. And with an opponent playing very well, you just gotta :hatoff: to her. Nicely done.

Her serve is still far far from what it was last week. Still struggling to close out sets, making things more difficult for herself than they should. We're almost at the end of the season Masha, so hang in there! You'll have one week off next week. Step it up for tomorrow and Good Luck! :)

Patty, great effort. Have a great off season. :)

Maria competed extremely well, as did Patty. It was a nice match to watch.

Enjoy your time off, Patty! Hopefully you'll have a better 2007. :sad:

Will she ever lose???

Depression and anger were my feelings at 5-5 in each set. :(
