especially well done Dinara , saved a match pt at 4-5 down , broke back , lost serve , then broke back to take match into a FS tiebreaker and strolled away

Tatiana Panova v Laurence Courtois
Svetlana Kuznetsova v Cara Black
Anna Bastrikova v Anca Barna

good luck girls <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Tatiana won as expected <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Anna Bastrikova ........ just couldn't find her serve winning only 45% on 1st serve ... thats not going to win any matches on the Tour , got to work harder Anna.

Svetlana got a tough draw , fought hard but again not enough 1st serve pts won and too many errors .... disappointing

at least Irina Selyutina won for herself and to make the path easier for Elena Bovina <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

I have just added Anastasia to my list of Russian players I follow! I liked teh way she held her nerve in such a big match against her famous compatriot, Anna. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Elena B., it's time to RISE AGAIN! <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">

Who are Lina/Elena gonna play? Spice girls? and what are there chances of winning if they play them?

Congrats to ED on reaching her first Tier 1 final (I think!) - and what better place to do it than at HOME??? It must have been quite a show out there!

Congrats to Anastasia too for a great run all week.

Good luck in the dubs to ED and LK, too! If they make the final, I think they will be the crowd favorites.

Good luck tomorrow Elena!!!!!
