the kid plays a decent game to break.

odd that henin chose to serve first since her serve has been so erratic.

henin holds for 2-1. they both look a little nervy out there. that's no big surprise. ana's first final. and justine is often a wreck to start big matches.

easy hold for henin, 4-1.

it's been a nervous start and the crowd is fairly quiet. but i still think ana can get into this. she's just gotta hit some balls out there, hit through the nerves . . .
 
The occasion looks like too much for poor Ana now. Just too much pressure playing in your first slam final vs the games undisputed queen of clay.

this is how i thought ivanovic would come out in the semis. nervous. but she was on fire and full of confidence. i thought maybe she would take that same attitude into today's match, but so far . . .

Ivanovic so scared now, just wants to get off the court and hide. i feel so bad for her I can't watch. 1 and love for henin maybe. It ain't tennis

that's why we all have to remember to put our sunblock on when we play in the hot sun. i mean, tans are fine and dandy . . . but who wants to look like an old handbag later on??

Ivanovic just looks nervous and shaky. I see great things for Ana, but not today. Justine isn't doing anything special. Neither one can hit a 1st serve in. It's just that Justine is a smarter player WITH a Plan B.

justine might want to keep those "allez" to herself. i mean, i know she's hungry to win . . . but she is wiping the floor with the poor girl, who can't even keep the ball in the court. that ball was past the double's sideline . . . no need to rub salt in her wounds. or the fans, who are suffering through another bad final AGAIN this year.

very well put. she's not showing what she's made of today, but she's a real talent. and STILL my official new best friend (since she knocked out that other girl in the semi. that blonde chick, whatever her name is).
