    Hmmm, body wise, Maria K looks alike Anna Kournikova.

    Plays like her too.

    Maria K does look stronger. She's lean but you can see the muscle tone.

    Barbara Schett, Barbara Paulus and Judith Wiesner all are former Austrians in the top ten.

    Tamira's father is Ariff Mohammed, who is Tanzanian born Kenyan-raised Canadian of Indian descent. Her Mother is Chilean born Austrian.

    She is a walking UN...

    Hmm not really tall. Very blonde, pretty. Good all court game, and yes had a good serve and gorgeous stroke production. Got to about no. 7 about ten years ago and beat Venus at RG once. Now does lots of work for Eurosport (and is very good at it)

    I'm already seeing a difference in Vika's game with the addition of Amelie into her coaching staff. The slice backhand is looking fantastic.

    I know she was "considering" it. When did this happen? Right before Wimbledon?

    Well maybe she should hire Amelie back because her slice backhand looks better.

    It's not just a grunt or a scream at an important shot, it's a multiple second loon mating call that lasts until her opponent makes contact with the ball. She needs to be stopped.
    Yes please

    And grunts i'm generally ok with but outright screaming which is what a lot of the ladies are doing just seems purposefully effected rather than a grunt which sounds more genuine.
    Yeah, I don't mind the grunts it's that dreadful loooong wailing/screeching thing - the men do not do that. I agree it sounds like an affectation or gamesmanship.

    I don't know her last service game looked OK to me. But I still favour Viki to win this!!

    She doesn't get a high first serve %, and her second serve is a puffball. She's been serving well, but that's not normally the case.

    Yes I agree that her serve needs to be beefed up - especially that second serve as the rest of her game is very good.

    Viki gets a second chanceto serve this out - lets see if she can do it this time!!

    Paszek's serve is I don't even trust her being 40-0 up.

    Vika serving for it a 2nd time.

    And apparently A-Rad-Masha K. will follow them on CC to finish their match.

    Well we will have to see if that is the case as this can still go the a 3rd set what with the way Viki is having an issue serving it out

    Well done Vika!

    I'm definitely a Tamira fan after the last few weeks though!

    And now it's A-Rad/Masha K. time!!

    Finally Viki does it - that sets up a semi vs Serena and that couod be a good match.

    Now to see the end of the final quarter - finally a good decision from the organisers!!
