:bounce: Tammy!! Phenomenal Week for you! She beat both Bondarenko sisters!!

Mini choke after holding a couple match points at 5-3, scared me for a bit.

First final in a couple years, this is awesome. I was worried about your game after losing to Mattek last week, but this is great news.

Alona same amount of games at Kat ;)

I was watching (most) of this match - Tammy played pretty well! Stunning shots from her, although I have to admit her movement isn't getting any better :sad:

Still going at 31?

Great effort from Tammy. Hopefully she doesn't tire herself out before Wimbledon.

Love to see her on T.V!

Bad luck Alona.

I kind of agree with you there

All you need is a good slice or good dropshot to make Tammy vulnerable.

Maybe you should think a little bit before you post...she's beaten Mauresmo twice in her career and stretched the distance at least one other time (and Mauresmo slices...a lot)...

And which of the two other semifinalists slice or drop shot a lot? I can't remember...?:lol::rolleyes::o

Congrats Tammy! What an incredibly exciting week! Hope she can sneak past Safina or Dementieva now!

Tammy beat Amelie at Wimbledon all the way back in 2001. There is a big difference between someone who is in their mid 20s and someone who is over 30 years old. If you can't understand this then thats not my problem.

Did you watch the match? As I said a number of times, Tammy's shots were very impressive and she really knows how to use the Grass courts advantages! But let's be honest, Tammy isn't anywhere near as mobile as she used to be and as a fan of hers for a number of years this is a bit sad to see.
She's an incredible lady who is friendly both on and off court, and I would be very pleased if she wins the final,

she also beat mauresmo this year as well...so your claim about the slices doing her in is bullshit.

also, another report commented that she was "running everything down," so i'm not inclined to take your word for it...:lol::rolleyes:

Good luck Tammy! This girl is just brilliant on grass courts. She always does well and understands the tactics required to win on the green stuff. There would not be too many grass courts in Bangkok you wouldn't think so all the more credit to her.
