Chakvetadze is just lucky to be in the semis. She's weaponless.. Her ability to move around the ball well is overhyped.
I hope Kuznetsova makes to the finals. She definitely has a better chance of giving Henin or Williams a fight than Anna.

Lord help women's tennis. This is pathetic, to say the least.

maybe it will be the opposite of the 2000 venus vs hingis semi; one plays horrible in the first, the other, disgraceful in the second and then they both come together in the third to play the worst set they've ever played. Not just in their career's, mind you, since they both hit their first ball. :unsure:

talk about a step back for the women's game. this is the #2 and #6 player in the world? OUCH! Anna Chak is extremely overrated, but I knew that a while back. Kuzzie should win this in the 3rd set rather easily. Starting to come into her own, very veteran like.

I didnt expect better quality match without the wind anyway but I know once again things can be worse than bad :o

I saw a bit of the match at the end and it looked really bad.

What a gap in terms of quality in comparison with the other semifinal.
