Kudos to Maggie

Well Maggie just won her first tier 1 title by out steading the woman who many regard as the best indoor player in the world, Lindsay Davenport.

What a win What a week

Maggie reached a peek of #4 in 1995 before becoming injured in 1996. She has fought her way back, and although some have recently criticized her in for lacking results, it all came together in this tournament and she proved that indoors, even the best will have a tough time beating her by beating the world #2, defacto world #3 and soon to be world #4 on route to the title.

Maggie also continued the recent upset trend in Tier 1's. Of the 9 tier 1's in a calendar year, eight have been played and neither Jennifer, Venus or lindsay have one.

Who said women's tennis was predictable?

To be honest though the result might have been predictable if Serena had been playing - unfortunately from my pov.

But yeah kudos for Maggie Maleeva, and what an interesting tournament!

I just watched the final. Maggie played so well. I've never seen her play the way she has this week.

Maggie wins her first Tier 1 event! Congratulations!!

O joy!

Unbelievable game.
Don't tell me Lindsey was tired
She hit 15 aces. 5 in one game to save 2 break points. It was first class tennis.
Maggie was unseeded.
1st Smashnova, she had very successful year.
2nd Venus lost only 3 times this year to player other than Serena
3rd Dechy upset several top 10 players this year
semi Mauresmo 3-0 record against Maggie
Final Davenport - the best carpet player


Celebrate Maggie fans !!!!!
