I love watching doubles, they just hardly ever show it. The only time you see it in the Grand Slams is if there's nothing else going on OR there's a rain delay and nothing else to show (then you get matches from previous days). I was watching Martina this morning - she is awesome! I thought Jummy Connors at the Open at 39 was amazing, but Martina just blows that away. She was still playing singles ten years ago too. I'd love to see her take one more Grand Slam.Originally Posted by Florimel
Other news today: Mary Pierce beat Amelia Mauresmo and is on to the semis! Statistically, this could be her year: she won the Australian in 1995 and the French in 2000.... time to win another Slam! This also means that we'll get more shots of Mary's brother, David.
The women's semis look like this: Clijsters vs. Sharapova and Pierce vs. either Davenport or Dementieva. I don't know who to root for - I like them all... I do want Lindsay to beat Dementieva, but as far as the semis They're all great players and have class. I'm leaning towards anyone but Sharapova, not because I don't think she's a good player, but because she's young and will have plenty of time. The other ladies (even though Clijsters is, what? 23) have paid their dues more.
