Well the clay season is finished, and we now move on to the British grass season, which is a short yet highly anticipated 3 weeks of tennis. Nicole Vaidisova triumphed in Paris to regain the top spot, and will be looking to do well here. The transition from clay to grass is never easy, so this week will be very interesting, and could give a good indication of who to look for at Wimbledon in 2 weeks time. Let's check out the draws...


(1)Vaidisova Vs. Bye
Golovin Vs. Stosur
Petrova Vs. Dechy
Schnyder Vs. (7)S.Williams
(5)Peer Vs. Bye
Hantuchova Vs. Chakvetadze
Capriati Vs. Salerni
Bye Vs. (3)Dulko

(4)Olaru Vs. Bye
Jankovic Vs. Safina
Moore Vs. V.Williams
Ivanovic Vs. (8)Davenport
(6)Cibulkova Vs. Bye

Davenport can only beat losers like Jessica Whore. Yeah she did better, but Tati wasn't feeling well this week. She got wasted at the players party in RG and couldn't even play. Poor thing, she's still hungover.:hug:

Hottest woman in the world. You just can't speak French;) Tati is a very professional player, she's one of the most popular players in OWTT tour, she draws the crowds. The fans and the rest of the players love her and you know it. Ahhh, jealousy:yawn:

(1)Vaidisova def. (7)S.Williams 6-4 0-6 6-0


French Open champ and World #1 Vaidisova continues her great form with a win over hard-hitting American Serena Williams. The fist set was really tight, and Vaidisova sneaking it seemed to give her the mental edge as she ran away with it in the decider.

Congratulations to Elena Dementieva who wins her fourth :eek: title! :worship: A match between the world #1 and #2 was bound to be a thriller, and the crowd were treated to a classic. Vaidisova drew first blood in the first set, securing it 6-3 with a single break. The second set was a mirror image of the first set, but with Dementieva taking it. Vaidisova twice went a break up in the decider, but was unable to close it out, as Dementieva fought back and took it on the tie-break to wrap up a memorable victory. By virtue of winning the title, Dementieva will tie Vaidisova for ranking points, so we will have co-#1s next week :eek: Great week for both! :bigclap:
