Peer, Li, Makarova, and Stosur doesn't indicate "back" to me, but if she wins the title...well, it helps she's played great tennis this week.

This result makes up for the Rosmalen semi Elena lost. I am SO happy for Nadia. Such beautiful tennis.

WIN. THIS. TITLE.!!!!!!!! :rocker2:

Nadia is serving well, volleying well, and returning serves low.
She's back and I think she's going to have a good summer.
Tough Wimbledon draw with Vika R3 then Maria

Nadia plays Marion or Aga. This is Nadia's good form.
Still time to have an excellent year

This is her first ever grass final. Surprisingly, a lot of her worst results have been on grass. She IS best on clay, but her tactics and ability always seemed best suited to grass--to me anyway.

'08 Eastbourne F
'03 Rosmalen SF, '07 Eastbourne SF
'05 Wimbledon QF

Overall W/L on grass is 24-16 without Eastbourne this year. Best wins were probably Dementieva at Wimbledon '00 and Rosmalen '03, which doesn't say much.

Anyway, good to see Nadia getting back on track. :yeah:

You never know. Nadia has the best serve and best volley of the 3 players left.
If she plays like today, she will be tough tomorrow

Petrova showed some good signs in her matches against Kirilenko on clay, so this is not that surprising, I saw it coming. On the other hand she only beat a couple of scrubs, it's ridiculous to think she is back, especially considering what I saw yesterday - she is still slow and overweight. Grass just enables her to use S&V and thus win some cheap points without having to move around so much. I dare to say that once back on hard she will suck again. Of course a lot depends on her result at Wimby resp. how much confidence she will gain or lose there.

Bloody hell, haven't seen Nadia play this well since ... well, 18 months at least. Well done, that was impressive. Body language was *great* too, running back to her chair after service holds and what have you.
