Mauresmo won 3-6 6-4 6-3, but it was a great match. And Pistolesi showed that when she wants she can play more agressively and even come to the net. I really enjoyed the match and it was the best I've seen from Pistolesi too. Mauresmo played really well too and had lots of patience. Not too many players could keep playing so long points through all the match.
I had never seen Anna play before today, but I was really impressed, she played so well! She gets almost everything back and hardly makes and errors at all! Yes, I thought it was a really great match to watch, the points were so long; I wish I had been in the crowd for this match!
She played really almost perfect. And she's so short but she got to all the balls and you could see at times how exhausted she was: there was that looooooong point where they were running all over the court (Anna more than Amelie); Anna won it, however after she looked like she will fall down - and the next point she was running like nothing happend !
I've enjoyed so much watching this:bounce:
Anna may not have the power others have but she placed the ball anywhere in the court, and I love the spin balls both of them played....
And some spin moonballs remembered me to Conchi!
It was great all the way, I wish there were more matches like that one nowadays, strategy, variety, not only hard hitting
