Essentially it has been a year without the Belgians ... we need to get them back in there next year!

I wonder how Kimmy is doing ??? poor girl ... just dumped, bum wrist, can't swing the stick

Sounds like Myskina might be out...and I have questions about whether Serena will play or not.
Caps and Venus might end up in the draw anyway. Though I think Petrova would be a better competitor.

And yes, we NEED the Kimster and JHH back soon!

I went with Kuzny. Linds hasn't had enough warm up time. Amelie is over-played, prone to injury after this many matches. Myskina is the only other one that I think could take it, because she is so good on indoor surfaces.

Yeah, but Myskina had the flu a couple of weeks ago. Sedentary types like me may recover that quick but it's a bit harder for atheletes.

Look at what the chicken pox did to Hewitt and Ferrero.

If i were Mauresmo id be worried about over doin it.

If I were any of these players I'd be worried about training hard and putting a lot into these year end tourneys. Unless absolutely necessary, just lick your wounds and try to find some extra time off ... despite unrealistic expectations by the WTA!

It's absurd ... the tour is absurd! These athletes have been at it since early January. I'm a broken record, I understand that ... but doesn't anyone else notice that the sport is shooting itself in the foot?

Sad thing that first set win of Serenas gaurenteed her a spot in the semis! Lindsay will face the winner of Elena and Anastasias match. I want Elena to win i really like her and she hasnt done so well in this tourney. Plus i think Lindsay would have an easier time w/her. Sorry Elena! :-/

They just showed that Momo has more wins than anyone else this year. Good solid consistent year ... and so much more enjoyable to watch than Lindsay!

Hey Kirk....Luckily God invented beer, it's easier to watch Lindsay that way. She's boring to watch, but she's had a really good run. If it was me, I'd retire, and drink some more beer.

I'd like to know what Momo said to Serena at the net. That was a great look Serena gave her, as if to say, "well excuuuuuusssssse me."

I missed that ... but I think Serena might be a little touchy, and for good reason no doubt!

And MAN Maria has nice legs! How long til she's 18 so I don't have to feel all freaky for making comments like that ... If I knew she was 18 I might go as far as to say

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

but I don't, so I won't ;)

Hey Kirk! Long time no talk! Where ya been?

If they showed that they were wrong. Both Mauresmo and Davenport have 63 wins this year. Mauresmo is 63-10 (with an additional W/O and ret.) and Davenport is 63-9 (with an additional W/O). Davenport won 7 titles and Mauresmo 5.

Sharapova wins in 3 sets 4-6 6-2 6-4. But don't worry, Serena has her excuses in order. She made sure to call the trainer out.

"The surface must make a difference."

************************************************** ***************************

Whatever that surface was, it seemed really slow ... A lot of indoor tourneys have it, but I'm no expert on court surface so I don't know what it's called.

I just don't like it because seems as slow as clay, without the sliding ... love to ssllllliiiiiiiiiiide :)
