The arrogancy and bas sportsmanship from Fish is limitless. He was pumping himself on every Jelena's mistake and serving faster on her side. Cursing the lineman in match vs Novak...

Serena was classy and was pushing Novak under pressure more then Jelena. She knows how bad it is to be injured

Jelena and Noavk kept the smile on...and fought well. Now recover both and get ready to smah at AO. Good luck!

Jelena ur smile makes me proud!

I didn't see what Mardy doing as being overly offensive. He only went at Jelena when they (US) was break point down or had a break point. She (Jelena) was out there after having retired her singles rubber for rest, so :confused: It could be argued that France didn't exploit Jelena's injury at the right moments and cost them the match and a chance to get in the final.

Nice to see Jelena and Serena sharing a laugh; but holy cripes man, he name is SERENA not SeLENA!! (Though the two do/did(R.I.P.) some ASSets) :lol:

That's very harsh and innacurate. Novak battled better than anyone on the court in order to take some of the burden from Jelena, yes. Serena was great at net today, and to say she just served big takes away the many times she was besting both Jelena and Novak at the net. Fish was too eager to poach and made some mistakes, but he came up with some important poaches.

What I don't understand is that when Jelena is injured - that's it. If she can't play - she has to forfeit her match. But when Serena is too ill to play - she can have a substitute. It just seems like double standards to me. What are the rules for the Hopman Cup?

you can have a sub at any time, but I mean, the depth of Serbia is :unsure: :lol:

They could have gotten any of their other three top 300 players. :lol:

But didn't Chela substitute for a different country, or something? I really wanted to see Tati/Serena. :(

Well congratz to USA. I thought it woud be too much for Serbia to win.

What I don't understand is that when Jelena is injured - that's it. If she can't play - she has to forfeit her match. But when Serena is too ill to play - she can have a substitute. It just seems like double standards to me. What are the rules for the Hopman Cup?

I don't think there are any :lol:

SHE DIDN'T really get great preperation to be honest...only 2 matches out of a potential 5...

but...
YAY!!!

AM SO EXCITED FOR 08 prospects!!!
Was in school following both the livescore of hopman cup AND watching hong kong it was so nerve-racking!...their matches followed the same patterned it seem because when Venus broke back or won a set (can't remember which) serena won the first set or got back in it(can't remember which)

I hope Venus wins her final so we can have a WILLIAMS WEEK!!!!!!!!

Great preparation for doubles though....glad to see they could pull it together!!
I OFFICIALLY LOVE JELENA...i mean that smile....AND I OFFICALLY LOVE Djokovic...he is just so funny....SERBIAN TENNIS PLAYERS all in all!! haha...
Yay Serena and VENUS!!!!!!

Team USA!!!
Seems like Mardy played really well in his singles match. To push Novak that hard is really good sign for his AO summer.
I just wish Serena got to play some singles against Janovic or Golovin to prep her even better for the AO. But oh well she won a diamond ball so I'm sure she's fine. :)

with jelena and novak being injured the us team really had to fight hard to win. fish used all his power of serve on jelena, she even comented that on court. not very gentlemen-like. still nice try for our team. well done!! if they were healthy and fit they would have won the doubles easily... jelena was just standing on court, still it seems they all had fun!

From another thread. :o

Ana is in Hong Kong. BTW watching mixed...Novak and Gisela playing really bitchy. Gisela keeps hitting balls at Jelena, and Novak hitting bombs to Gisela. Someone's gonna get injured.

Let me get that right. Its ok Novak hitting bombs to Gisela, but it is wrong Fish hitting bombs to Jelena. Nice logic. :rolleyes:

:weirdo: Yes, how DARE he try and win a match! What an asshole. :rolleyes:

Yes, but that doesn't mean he had to serve 220km/h to Jelena :rolleyes::o:fiery::tape::help:

Yes it does thats the game of mixed doubles if she couldn't handle it she shouldn't of played, no different than Djokovic bombing serves at Serena. He wanted to win and it would of been embarrassing if he and Serena lost by not capitalizing on Jankovic's injury like some other teams didn't.

Jan 4th, 2008, 09:15 PM
I just finished watching the mixed doubles. It was so fun. That volley that Serena hit after Novak fired a shot right at her was amazing. Even Novak couldn't believe Serena got that back.

The part of Serena's speech I saw afterwards was hilarious. She was like a little schoolgirl when talking about Djokovic :lol:
