nothing we didn't know about, and nothing to say anything about the matches we're about to see.
apart Petrova, Maria didn't meet any YEC opponent, as stated Kim, JHH and you can add Marti to the mix (asian tournies not an indicator for anything when we are looking to compare her comming into a much bigger occasion) were all out of competition, petrova had a fair share of great wins, though again not much against elite-eight, kuznetsova went from high to low.
I guess mauresmo is most lacking - though she could also turn it around.
really, the only summary is that the year end season has been one big disaster, that we don't have enough exciting matches in this part of year from the top girls and that they are all going into the final tourny with form that we cannot judge.
well done wtatour!
