Congrats!!:bounce: :bounce:
Jie:hearts: :hearts:

I'm so happy that Jie can played so consistently in such noisy surrounding;) .
The crowd was cheering loudly for every Jie's UE. :tape: :help:

Hope Sania will take a good rest and do well in Mixed doubles final.;) :hug:

Congrats Jie :clap2: Gold medal in her pocket now, well done to her :) making big strides for China which is great to see.

Sania :sad: disappointing, but silver isn't that shabby & i'm sure that your weeks here in Doha will give your 2007 season a boost. well done :) :hug:

Jie played very good in the 3rd set and she looked nice too. congrats to her.

Sania. disappointment for us and for her but i never expected her to win the gold before the games started. she is a better player now and 2007 will see her nice. thanks for the heavy duty you have put up for the nation. now win the gold in mixed.

I was seeing Sania play after a long gap. And unfortunately, today she looked like the same old buggy Sania. Pathetic footwork, sloppy serve, and lots of UEs. The fact that she ended the match with back-to-back double faults at 30-all illustrates the scenario.

Either she was VERY tired, or she needs a lot more work to do.

Im so happy for Jie!!!!
She will hopefully have an awesome, awesome 07 maybe cracking the top 10 (hopefully).

I saw it on CCTV, Jie played awful in the second set but stunning in the 3rd....

Congrats Jie.

Sania needs to learn how to string along her form into strings of wins. Not a couple of good wins then a slump.

Dec 13th, 2006, 09:13 AM
sania was very inconsistant today which is expected when you are tired and your opponent is returning everything with some statement.

Congrats Zheng.

Just the fact that you are celebrating wildly shows Sania deserves at least a round of applause. After all, wasn't Zheng the favorite per ranking, being no. 2 seeded here and 33 per WTA compared to Sania's 4 and 66 respectively?

Sania looked too tired for the match. This was her 12th match of the Games (no one has played so many matches in this Games) and she deserves a rest after her mixed doubles final today. She will come back strongly in 2007. Well done Sania! :)

The crowd was distracting to Sania also. Do you think she paid them to come into the stadium and cheer? Warped Chinese mentality I guess. :mad:

Players from other countries generally have no problems playing in India. Martina Hingis enjoyed and won the tourny in Calcutta recently. Chinese girls must be something special. :help:

BTW Sania/Paes are leading Japanese team of Morigami/??? in the finals 7-5 4-4 but Sania is playing really poorly..The lead is solely due to Paes' brilliant efforts.

Dec 13th, 2006, 04:28 PM
Its all poor planning. When you are entering four events, it was apparent you would get tired during the finals. She should have planned accordingly and, may be, skipped one event (at least the women's doubles or may be team event). I would rather have 1 gold than two silvers.
