Ah thanks. That makes sense. :D Would give you a Goldie for the analysis but that function is missing at the moment :lol:

Merc, Elena made it to the semi's, so 900 points instead of 500. She will still be in 5th after the tournament on 5570 points.

Sam will end at 6th if she wins and 7th if she loses, as if Schaivione wins, she will get 1995 points from this tournament, as she lost 1R last year meaning she would be on 4990 points, just higher than Sam.

I really expect Sam to make the top 4 by the end of the season, for the grass season she is only defending 2R Eastbourne points and 3R Wimbledon points, as well as only 2R US Open points later in the year.

Oops, thanks for that, I thought it might contain errors but I didn't think my mistakes would affect Stosur, lol. All fixed now.

Been a great couple of weeks for Sam, the match against Justine and Serena were insane. I hope she can pull it off, it'll be extremely disappointing if she couldn't do i against Schiavone.

Looks like we are getting a Soderling/Nadal final in the men's.

Yep Nadal V Soderling is the final. I am going to tip an upset and say Soderling will beat Nadal!

Also for those who have it and i doubt anyone here does but in case you do the Stosur match will be broadcast in 3D on channel 200 for Austar and Foxtel viewers. I can see the channel but the screen is split into 2 which is how it works i guess. They put one over the other and it broadcasts the signal. I think its a waste of money and effort imo.

Wow. Heartbreak is what i would call it. Beating Henin, Williams and Jankovic only to lose in the final. Stosur i would say played her worst match of this tournament but was courageous in defeat. Its hard to say it but its true i'm afraid. In saying this Stosur has become a much better player but like all players they have those off days and thats how it goes.

Schiavone played a awesome match. She was the best woman on the day. Sam and Australia will have to wait for another chance. Congrats to Francesca though because her heart was there. Its an amazing achievement and whats more she becomes the first Italian Woman to win a Grand Slam title i believe. For us better luck next time.

Final Score
Schiavone def Stosur 6-4, 7-6
