:wall: Elena stop ... being Elena. Without 10 (10!) double-faults, she'd have had this wrapped up rather than battling deep into the 3rd set. Sigh, well, it would be cool to have a Canookian in the R16 (and WTA Woz who I like to watch), so there's that. But, c'mon, Miss D!

ETA: Dementieva broken, and now trails 2-4. Oops, broke back and is now on serve 3-4.

The Match Math is trademark Dementieva :lol: ...
6 games with held serves + 17 games with service breaks = 23 games played

Petrova slams an ace to level the 3rd set @ 5-all, then points to her eyes to show the officials that its so dark they can't see.

She saw well enough for a beautiful shot down the line to make it 0-30!

And now she's got the break and is serving for the match. Guess it's not always good to get what you want, Nadia! :lol:

[ETA: Eh, nevermind ... broken back, and they'll probably call it a day now.]
[ETA 2: Eh, no, playing on with night goggles innit?]

And Rezai breaks back to level it @ 6-all! :rofl:

At this point, I think they're just whackin' at the ball and hoping it lands "in".

Sick ace from Nadia for 30-15.

OMG, get some flashlights and let these gals battle it out all night long! :watch:

In the changeover Nadia is looking as if she wanted to murder somebody, quite possibly herself considering how many chances of serving the match out she has wasted so far. :yikes:

After 152353743 deuces we've had since my last post, I totally agree! :lol:

Ok, play suspended at 7-all in the 3rd and Rezai is hopping around and clapping like she's won the thing? Hmmmm.

I'd be hoppy too, knowing that Nadia would have an entire night to get herself :fragile: thinking about things ... like, for instance, the opportunities she let slip through her fingers

Argh, too much drama. I gotta stick with the lughead fratboys in ATP. ;)

God damn ESPN showed taped tennis all afternoon. :( That pisses me off especially with so many late matches going on.

Rezai and Petrova both blew 3 match pts. :P And now they have to sleep on that.

I think Petrova could beat Venus if she wins this match but I don't like Rezai's chances. Once the French get their hopes up they usually get squashed shortly after. Venus will get revenge for Madrid IMO.

Way to go Tsonga! Glad he survived.

Still alive in the ladies suicide pool thanks to Dementieva coming back. Vera and I had to sweat that one out. ;)
