^:rofl: Not the first time I've seen Lena in some interesting photoshoots. I think she's so naturally pretty, but is one of those people where less is more. I often think she looks so overly done-up in these shoots, and it takes away from her beauty.

Safina lost 1 and 3 to Radwanska.

The Thomas Muster road show continued today in Kitzbuhel:

He lost 6-4 6-4 to Dustin Brown of (JAM). Not bad for a 42 year old guy. At least he made it competitive.

Why do I like all the headcases? For God's sake, JJ, even Ana can beat Kleybs these days.

Falla beat Hewitt, even if it was a ret :cheer2:
and Fat Dave beat Wawrinka :eek:

^JJ is really quite injured though; word was she was going to pull out, which perhaps she should have done. Kleybanova IS a very good player, IMO.

Why let facts get in the way of my drama :drama:
I agree, JJ should've pulled out. Obviously her ankle isn't healed yet. What kills me is that she wasted a 4-0 lead and set points.

^Damn, I didn't know that. Sigh.

I watched the Moscow final from 08 yesterday (JJ beats Bepa 6-3 6-2) and it made me sad. If she could find that kind of form again she'd be a GS champion, I'm sure. It was beautiful to watch.

Well JJ wasnt quite able to win a slam even in 2008 and the field isnt exactly worse now than then or is it? How does Serena for example compare to 2008. She is winning even more slams now but is she actually better again or did the field actually get even worse in 2 years. Henin's comeback has been a flop so far which has added minimal if anything to the WTA. We will see this fall and next year I guess. Kim the other comeback which was supposably going to add to the WTA competition has been hit or mess, you sense she can win a slam at any given moment again and who knows maybe at the U.S Open again, but for the most part she is unnoticeable playing only part time and often crashing out early. Ivanovic was a big force in 2008 which she is not now, same for Safina. Jankovic herself was definitely better in 2008. Elena seems less of a force than the last 2 years at the moment. Maria was a big force in early 2008. And Venus is aging out of contention.

Wow come to think of it the field overall is even worse than 2008 which I didnt really think before now.

Rumour has it Rafa and Novak playing doubles in Toronto, as a team. :cheer:

That would be awesome :cheer2:

^OMG, double booty action.

That would be awesome

The news has been confirmed by the Tournament Director, Karl Hale! :cheer2:

Maria was a big force in early 2008.

So now she's just a big farce? ;)

And Venus is aging out of contention.

Unlike a fine wine, huh? :D Actually, it may be a bit too soon to tell. If she underachieves at the U.S. Open, then I think your prediction is correct.

Roddick lost 3 and 3 to Simon in DC. Andy is really having a tough time of it lately; of course there are the predictable "he's finished" rumours, and I'm not so sure about that, though I think his time is rapidly running out to win another GS. I think were he not to win another one, his career would be deemed one of "under-achievement" which would be a shame considering his potential when he was younger, the hype and the expectation, though of course, he's still acheived a tremendous amount. It's also a shame he's morphed into a pusher. I think this loss also shunts him out of the top ten.

Just saw Roddick's score from last night against Simon. It is disappointing. After Roddick won his US Open I was certain he was going to win 6-7 majors during his career. Then 2 guys named Federer and Nadal came along and well the rest is history. Unfortunately I agree that his time to win another major has probably run out. Fortunately his credentials will still land him in Newport when his career is over.

OMG, Coco Vandeweghe beat Vera Zvonavera late last night in San Diego. :eek::eek: What a win for Coco!! :)
