As I said she still is so in shape, quite more than while she was playing, I am becoming jealous
The level of tennis was really good, her FH was working pretty amazingly, but Lindsay for the first half of the match made a lot of mistakes, she wasn't really into it. Steffi made a rageous FH at a moment with a "YEEESSSS" to conclude it
Martina is still incredible at volleying and justine was justine, playing great, we quite didn't hear the sound of her voice. Navratilova, as expected, was the one who was talking and making jokes. She kept on telling Justine not to play on that FH !
There was a funny moment at a changeover with Steffi and Lindsay talking like 2 oldies about children (with the mic (that she lost twice while running) we could hear everything), Steffi ended the discussion with "they (kids) are into baseball, not tennis, NOT TENNIS."
Steffi spotted Tony Bennett in the crowd(apparently a star singer in the US
) and told "there is tony bennet, HE should have a microphone!"
Navratilova/Henin won the match 8-6. Steffi made more mistakes (the net) while the match lasted. Navratilova really seemed to be concerned to win it.
Davenport said at the interview at the net, that in the corner leading to the court they talked and Steffi thought she (Lindsay) was 40
(she is 33).
Great tennis, great fun.
The mens match was hilarious mostly thanks to Andre, first question when he came on court was :
"what do you think of your wife performance ?
-what do you mean... on the tennis court or...? "
BUT later he made a stupid joke about Sampras being a bad tipper, Pete was clearly pissed of, the mood after that changed, poor Rafa and Roger didn't know what to do.
(Sorry for the mistakes)
