Then don't watch and quit your whining.
Flashback to my Dad, circa 1976 ... "quit your crying, or I'll give you something to cry about!" Made sense back then.

6-all in the third. :kickass: Serena seems to be playing a masterful set, but Sam is hanging in there ... surviving a couple of breakpoints in her past three service games. ETA, and as I hit save, Serena is broken! :wideeyes:

She did it! :eek:
I thought for sure Serena would win after that 2nd set!

ETA: Regardless of the winner - we'll have a new slam champion! But who will it be? :D (Jankovic plz :shuffle:)

Stosur prevails 8-6. After losing the 2nd set who thought that would happen? Not me that's for sure.

I hope Stosur goes all the way now. :cheer2:

Congrats to SS! :respec: So, yeh, guaranteed a new Slam champion.

Sam has got to be considered the title favorite ... having shown Henin and Williams the door in consecutive matches, and having had the overall claycourt season she's had.

But I'm still hoping for my Elena to come through! :kickass: (it's been a tough ten years for we fans, Miss D, please shine!)

If not ED, then Jelena!

Sorry to see Serena go, but ...

My prediction, the winner of the Schiavone/Dementieva match will win the tourney. Dementieva has been so close, maybe this is her time.

But Francesca is an incredible clay court player and she's is playing wonderful this tourney.

Just beating those two back-to-back is an incredible feat. She has essentially already played two finals. I hope she can win this now!

I am expecting a Dementieva-Jankovic final. Actually I was expecting that from the moment Henin went out, but am expecting it even more now with Serena out now too. Stosur could surprise (and I guess in an even more unlikely event Schiavone) but I would expect Dementieva and Jankovic to meet now and one of them to win their long awaited first slam.

I think the complete opposite. The winner of Jankovic/Stosur has got to be the favorite.

H2Hs:

Jankovic leads Stosur 3-1 (Sam won the last match, though, in Miami)
Jankovic leads Schiavone 3-1 (1-0 on clay and Jelena won last 3 matches)
Jankovic leads Dementieva 7-3 (1-1 on clay; Jelena has won the last 3 matches)
Dementieva leads Stosur 4-1 (but Stosur won their only meeting on clay - at the FO last year)
Dementieva leads Schiavone 6-4 (won their last 3 meetings and 1-0 on clay)
Stosur leads Schiavone 4-1 (2-0 on clay; won their last 3 matches)
