I'll be rooting for Justine, but somehow i don't see her winning tonight, not in the shape Kim is.

Good luck to both.

I'm just back, I've seen many matches live already, but I'm still always surprised by the speed of the ball!

First, it surely was a real match! Kim was more consistent and played more surprising tennis as Justine.

The athmosphere was realy great!!! Did they show how we all did the the Mexican wave? The crowd was also very mixed, a lot of young people with their parents, also a lot of retired people.<br />And people were always shouting for the player who fell behind.

The doubles was, as expected, very funny!

Yeah, Arne I saw it all. But it wasn't a very good game, Justine was making lots of errors. That damn serve again. The crowd seemed to be a very good one...Well done Arne.

Did Elke play too? Against who? Who won??

Too bad they had to play on such a fast Greenset court. If they wanted a match with good rallies, they could have chosen something slower! <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Thank God they will play on a slower court during the WTA tournament in Antwerp next February (same carpet as in Paris the week before).

BTW who were the 6 top 10 players wo are going to play in Antwerp? Clijsters, Henin, Dokic, Mauresmo and who were the other 2?

I was there too! It was a nice evening, but I expected the match to be a three-setter! The doubles was funny : Flipkens/Nastase (or someone else, I don't remember his name) against Elke Clijsters/Bahrami : they played one set with tie-break which Flipkens won!<br />My nephew could't stop laughing when Bahrami played some points on his own (he always jumped over the net to hit his own ball back)<br />The mexican wave was cool too! We had a great sight on the crowd because we sat very high!<br />The Clouseau song was nice too : they mad a new version of "daar gaat ze": "daar slaat ze" about kim and Justine! They really seemed to have fun while they stood there watching Clouseau! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />The match itself started quite well, Justine made some good points, but after her 4-1 lead she started to make a lot of errors. After all it was a nice match (Kim made less errors) but I just expected it more spectaculair.<br />But I'm sure I will go back next year!

I was also sitting very high.

They didn't mention a 6th player, I think.

I had the feeling that sometimes it went to fast for Justine (cos she was tired), and that's why she started to make many mistakes after the 4-1 lead.

But Kim played good tennis, even when she was behing I had the feeling it wasn't a problem.

After the match Kim throwed her racket in the crowd, a shame I wasn't sitting lower!

I wish I could have seen the doubles match. Bahrami is so very funny! You should have seen some of his matches at Wimbledon!

Bahrami is incredible sometimes..I used to watch matches on Eurosport. He plays in lots of exhibitions for fun, together with LeConte, McEnroe, ... The guy is still a very good player, with magnificent strange shots. I remember him playing a whole rally just sitting on his knees on the field, or jumping over the net to smash his own lob...

He did the same thing yesterday, playing on his knees, returning his own shots, all the players played several points between their legs (also Elke and Kirsten!!!), playing the ball high in the air and catching it right in his pocket, etc...
