My mind is very gloomy after Elena's loss today, but think about that. Since Nastya won Palermo, our players made at least five finals (at least five that I can remember - Dementieva - Olympics and Acapulco, Likhovtseva - Leipzig, Bovina - Estoril, and Kournikova - Moscow, as well as the final of Fed Cup), perhaps 25 or more semifinals ( I guess Anna alone made more than 10 semifinals. Yet with these incredible numbers, we haven't won a title since that Nastya win. Statistically speaking, these numbers are incredible - 20% of success in semis and 0% in finals. Does it mean that our girls just can't hold themselves together for the most important matches, just can't handle the pressure?
