Suarez Navarro played really well. I had only seen her once at FO QF.
She looked very mediocre and I was wondering how did she make QF.

But now she played really well. The backhand is almost like Henin's.
It is even better technically, but doesn't have quite the same magic.
Forehand is a beautiful shot too.

Agreed.

With the financial crisis it wouldn't surprise me at all if they cut
women's prizemoney by 50%. I doubt tennis fans would complain.

Womens tennis will become a complete joke if/when Henin wins her first
slam on a comeback tour

Google Groups is a joke, women's tennis is fine. In fact, Venus's
opponent played very well.

She did, but Venus played dumb.
