Wheee, excited about the ladiezzzz semi-final line-up
(Congrats to Sam btw)
Great thread title, Loves_Shizuka!
Why thank you.
C'mon then, who we picking for the ladies champ?
Please let it be JJ holding the trophy on Saturday, but my head is saying Stosur at the moment. She'd be a very worthy winner, at least. (Well they all would lol)
I agree. Head says Stosur, heart says JJ.
Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!
Thread title ... you ornery boy. I'm clutching my pearls.
I'd have gone with "Tennis 2010: Federer-Free for 2 days" ... but that's just me. And would require too much updating when Roger loses in Wimbledon's second round to Donald Young.

Head and H.EART both say Dementieva. This one doesn't slip through her lovely fingers, and whichever of JJ or SS come through lays egg enough in the championship match to mitigate Elena's service [/lack thereof] game.
Re: The toughness factor: I think that Elena "is" mentally strong, relative to the WTA elite and relative to the final four here. She also possesses the most big-match experience. These factors should really help her in the final two matches.
Or not. I'm sounding a bit like the Beefcake circa 2004-2006 ... writing to convince myself that Sasha Elena is finally gonna toss off her drab bridesmaid's personae and become the queen.
^Would be great. In fact a JJ-Dementieva final would guarantee a happy winner for me.
In other news... For feck's sake, Nole!

Melzer takes it to a 5th set!
Dude was so solid and secure in the 4th rd, this is gonna be a fun set to
why did Liesel and Cara break up?
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
Nice win for Rafa. Three close sets versus a fellow Spaniard with a strong claycourt game. Great prep for the final stretch at RG.
Both Djok and Melz workin' the dropshots hardcore in this game
Stat fun: Melzer is 3 of 21 on break chances! Djokovic is a muuuuuch more tidy 4 for 5. But they're identical on total points won. (At least all of that was true before the scoreboard froze on my some 10 minutes ago.)
Almagro is kind of an understated cutie (isn't he?) as is the Djoker and his 90's attire. And Melzer has a good, chiselled face. Ahhh.
