Great opening game for Steffi, she can really get around that court as she tired out Maria with her consistancy.

Man has this match been unpredictable. Once one person is up they take it and run away. That is what Maria is doing right now. if Steffi doesn't stop this then Maria will be holding the trophy above her head very soon.

Steffi should be called the queen of spin after this game. She hit amazing topspin forehands and backhands taht ran away from Maria. looks as if Steffi realized that Maria was running away with the match and is doing something about it. The crowd is going wild.

Steffi hit two of the biggest serves taht i have seen all week in this game. Toping out at 122 miles and hour, her serve was just on.

Maria could run away with it now. Maria is running down every shot and is hitting great serves to steffis weaker side. This next game is going to be huge.

Maria!!! You need to keep the ball away from Steffis forehand. Steffi has teed up on so many forehands and Maria needs to learn from her mistakes.

Great Start for Graf and Maleeva as they were always in the right spots to hit their shots. Footwork is underrated but it helped them in this game

Rubin and Elena got lucky a couple of times but they won this game by staying in the points and waiting for Graf and Maleeva to miss.

They pulled the other team up and lobbed the ball over them easily. Graf and Maleeva need to watch out for the great lobs that Chanda and Elena have.

Steffi took over in this game with her amazing forehands and just completly took the otehr team off the court. If Elena and Chanda want to win this, they need to keep the ball away from Steffi deadly forehand, a problem that Maria had in the final.

Great returns highlighted this game. In doubles teh return can be very important and Dementieva and Rubin showed how important it is.

Like I said before, the team of Rubina nd Dementieva have amazing lobs and they constantly showed it off. Beware of the lob!!!
