MARY JOE FERNANDEZ



Mary Joe Fernandez defeated Natasha Zvereva 6-4, 6-3 to become the greatest non-slam champion. Fernandez won the tournament without dropping a set. She used steady groundstrokes to keep Zvereva on her heels, especially off of the forehand side. Zvereva said " Mary Joe kept taking the ball on the rise hitting winners, she just hit too deep for me to even try and come in, she definately earned this victory". Mary Joe said of Zvereva " I knew I had to be aggresive, because Zvereva is really good at running you around and toying with you if you don't, I am so happy to win this event'.

THANK YOU'S

I want to thank everyone for their participation. Looks like our next event will be on red clay with a draw size of 64 players competing in both singles and doubles. Oh, and I made sure that Anna Kournikova will be in it. I'll release the players names who are competing in our new tournament tomorrow, it will be called The Red Clay Championships of Spain. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I seriously do think Mary Joe is the best player never to win a slam. She had the talent and the court smarts to be the #1 player, if not been for the multitude of injuries she suffered and strong rivals in Graf and Seles over the years.

Plus, she seems so nice and she is so beautiful too. And furthermore she is a very good friend of Monica!

Mary Joe was my second fave after Monica and i was kind of sad when she had to retire though we all saw it coming.

It was a coolazz tournement BL, and realistic too. When I saw that Shriver had to play Sukova in the Qs, I thought thats too early for them to meet. Then I was shocked when Zvereve beat Shriver.<br />Anyways, way to go Mary Joe. I'm sure the next one will be great.
