But it can be hard to make, as Domi came here just in time, today morning, few hours before tournament starts and it can have some influence on her game :sad:

Nicole Vaidisova Works With Robert Lansdorp

http://www.tennisserver.com/images/advanta2005/Advanta-20051104-0762.jpg

For the past couple of months tennis star Nicole Vaidisova has been plagued by an afflicting shoulder injury. Just when it seemed as her career may be in jeopardy doctors have noticed some improvement an Vaidisova is expected to be back to 100% physically in no time. Mentally however she is a player with a broken spirit and depleted confidence. In order to salvage what has been a terrible ending to a once terrific season for the young Czech, Vaidisova and her coach Justin have brought in legendary tenis coach Robert Lansdorp to work on her game and give her a confidence boost coming in to the Year Ending Championships. When asked about her chances at the YEC Vaidisova stated, "Obviously I'm in poor form and although my shoulder is on the right track I am still not 100% physically or mentally. I just have to hope for some magic on court."

Good tennis here from Vaidisova. She seems to be over her recent struggles, and moves confidently to 2-0 in round robin play. A little blip at the start of the second, but she recovered well!

Serena is already qualified and Ivanovic already eliminated, so our tommorow's match means almost nothing except to know if Ree end first or second in her group.

Cibulkova vs Lena will be the most important match! Go Lena!

Vaidisova, Shahar and Olaru could all end up at 2-1, if Shahar beats Nikki and Olaru beats Dulko :eek:

Great win for Ivanovic here. SHe was already 0-2 so knew she couldn't qualify and went out today playing without any pressure. Similarly, Serena was already through so no pressure on her to win this one either. The CT gave Ivanovic the win, and she was just a tad better in the decider, with many close games going the Serb's way.

Such a tense decider here between these two. Dulko got the early lead but was unable to carry on. 2 CTs at the end of the set show how tight these two were. Just one extrea point in one of those CT games and Dulko would have taken it on a tie-break!

Serena is so confident and fired up with her tennis right now. She was in devastating form today, and there was not alot Peer could do out there. Serena moves on to the final - Peer is sent packing, but she should be pleased with her semi-final showing here in Monte Carlo

Dementieva continues her mastery over Vaidisova, once again winning an encounter on a third set tie-break. Dementieva move on to the final where she will face Serena Williams, who beat her 6-0 6-1 in the round robin, and will be looking to reverse that in the final. Good showing from Vaidisova after her recent struggles

The hottest 2 players on tour right now made it to the YEC final, and it is only fitting that it would be such a tight affair. Almost every game was decided by just a few points, and in the end it was Dementieva who came through on a third set tie-break to avenge recent losses in the Moscow final and the round robin stage here. Dementieva wins her first major title after mediocre performances at the Slams this year. Serena has had an outstanding second half to her season and should be pleased with her performance here this week.
