Tamarine's record is sensational! She must really like grass! Arantxa's record is quite good also...a finalist twice in Wimbledon but lord knows how many times she's lost in the 1st and 2nd rounds! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
tammy is sensationable on the grass! she feels at home and at ease on it! i just wish she was like that on a surface that is used regularly... grass is only used for about 4-5 tournaments! <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> i wish she was equally at home on the hardcourts or clay!!!!!
Yes ... Tamarine's upsets have mainly come on the grass .... <br />4th round at Wimby 4 times in a row!<br />pretty impressive.... if the tour consisted of more grass tourneys she would most likely be in the top 20! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <br />I think only Tammy and Lindsay Davenport have had such a consitent record at Wimby in the last 4 years! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> .... top players know not to mess with Tammy on her surface - she beat Amelie in Wimby this year as well! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
I totally agree with you, Vixen that if the tour consider of more grass tourneys it would be good for Tammy. But it seem difficult because Wimby's tournament play after French Open just two weeks. There are only 3 tourneys in 2 weeks for warming up before Wimby. Tammy always play at Birmingham, Eastbourne and sometime plus ITF Chellenger in the second week of Frence Open. <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" />
I realize that good players have to play well on every surface if they want to improve thier ranking. But just don't understand why there are 6 clay court tourneys even though Frence Open has been finished but no grass court matches after Wimby. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />
