Maybe there's a resemblance to Ludmilla Khartosmilova (spelling?)? A fellow Czech female, middle distance runner from the 80's .. If anyone remembers this athlete they'll understand why I am laughing... Hehehe. Now I cannot stop. .. A little colour. She was so doped up with testosterone that she had a quite visible moustache. When asked about it, her answer was : *with a very VERY deep voice* It comes from the hard training ..
I remember Kratochvilova. She looked like she was Roger Daltrey's uglier brother. Roger Daltrey was the vocalist of the Who.
... I've gone off topic, just thought I'd show a picture of the above mentioned female ex world class athlete .. (According to wiki her name is actually Jarmila. So much for the Ludmilla parallel. ). EOM
PS and here's a young Roger Daltrey

I don't think there's any particular logic behind it or any reference to other women with that name. But the name Ludmilla (or Ludmila) seems to fit some poster's (stereotypical?) view of Czech women (like the name Heidi would fit a girl from the Alps and so on...).
Have just watched a few games from the Estoril final. Not exactly a lot of spectators there. The play is abysmal with lots and lots of moon balling. Now it's gone into a 3rd set, so suppose Kanepi is fave for the title. Here's hoping the Spaniard will win though and no, I'm not watching any longer.
Barthel beat Goerges in 2 sets. Barthel & Caroline were born on the same day. Right now, who knows who is better?

I'm glad that Li Na won her match. Jimmie should be pretty happy as well since one of his favorite cuties Cirstea won her match even though Goerges lost ("you win some, you lose some" Jimmie ), but I feel a bit sad for Zvonareva who continues to struggle. Looking at the score the Venus vs Halep match must have been an exciting one.
5-5 in the TB and Sveta hands Vika SP by DFing. Quite typical of Sveta, sadly for her.
I think Kuznetsova double faulted to 4-6 in the 1st set tiebreak and then Vika double faulted right back.
These scoreboards are a bit weird with who they say double fault or hit aces in tiebreaks. On a player's 2nd service point if they hit an ace or a double fault it'll say the opposing player did that. But the match stat is correct though.
Zvonareva and Schiavone are really struggling lately. Sooner or later both of their rankings are really going to take a serious nosedive. I guess as fans of Caroline we can look at those two and draw the conclusion that things could be even worse.
