I hope Francesca doesn't get the Roland Garros curse. You know, the one where you win RG and your career goes down from there.. [H]
I have nothing further to add. It was a final that was worth watching from the first serve right through til match ball. Never a dull moment. And it was so goood not to have to watch a fat snorting lumbering bull lugging her 90 kilos around the court and sweating like a pig.
Well done Franchi and Sam too, for a very entertaining Match.

Pretty much. [Y] I think there may be [st] delays in Paris today.
Complimenti alla prima italiana a vincere un torneo dello Slam. Povera Pennetta eh eh.[
Congrats to Sam too, obviously[Y]
With a striking absence of pre-pub or media attention, Elina Svitolina of Ukraine won the RG 2010 Girls Championship.
Congrats, Elina & davaiii!!! [H] Will be watching for her in future.
Elina Svitolina became the first Ukrainian in history to win the girls’ singles title, beating Ons Jabeur (TUN) 6-2, 7-5, while Agustin Velotti became the first Argentinean to win the boys’ title since Guillermo Coria in 1999, beating Andrea Collarini (USA) 6-4 7-5, in the 2010 French Open junior finals. A nervous Jabeur got off to a shaky start, taking the first game but dropping the next five after an aggressive run of play by Svitolina. The 15-year-old from Kharkov took out the first set in just 28 minutes, and when she took a 4-1 lead, the second set looked likely to go the same way. The Tunisian showed great patience however, and began to play more efficiently. Forcing Svitolina into errors, she shifted the momentum and levelled the second set at 4-4.
Svitolina broke again however, but at 5-4 and serving for the title, it was her turn to fall victim to nerves and she conceded the break-back to 15-year-old Jabeur. The Ukrainian broke again for 6-5, however, then served out at the second time of asking to take the match out after 75 minutes on court. She threw her racquet into the air in celebration, while Jabeur dashed hers to the ground in disappointment.
The best news of today is that Stosur WON ! [Y]
Sorry Paul, I go for a final between Stosur and Schiavone with a win for Schiavone.
At the end of her career, a Grand Slam title will be the cream on the cake [^]
[/quote] It took a while to react but happy for Schiavone and tennis in general ! She really played a smart game and deserved to win.
Actually, I took no time at all to react. [;)] Message 537567 yesterday:
Nella called it! [H] Congrats to Francesca!
On one level, I kinda gotta get behind this. Schiavone has never been given her due by the commentariat. Not like the hateful contempt they direct at Russians--rather, amused condescension. Decide for yourselves which is more galling. They're still cracking wise. lol! Can't hardly believe it...
Thanks and WOW she looks like Daniela, smashin’
[quote user="Philli"]Well, I hope she has a better figure than Daniela H. That girl has absolutely NO Ass at all.[/quote]
hahahaha that’s quite brave comment from a women.
at first glance i thought she was Masha.. but yes hamoudi.., she looks like Daniela very much! lol
well, congrats! i will look forward for her future plays.. :))
Philli will be happy to hear that Junior Champ Svitolina appears somwhat more... thickly built than Dani. 'Course, that doesb't take much. [;)]
[quote user="CROUCHING TIGER"]LOL[H]....Philli meant her "behind", Paul, not her....euhh...face?[8-|][/quote]
Maybe I'm stereotyping but I think it a safe bet the typical Ukraine girl is not skinny in the ass. Have to see more match photos to know. (There was a stream of her final but it was a bit too early for me.) Not easy to find body shots of juniors--media all afraid some Yankee freaks might get upset. [:P]
Darn Paul, I'm surprised the French Open wasn't totally censored...or was it. You know what the French say...'thank heaven for little girls' ... Maurice Chevalier couldn't have put it better. Anyway, some of the Body shots by those horny cameramen and, of course, those cams set at ground level behind the base lines for all those delicious pantie shots, all went out live on Eurosport, just as they happened. And they particularly like the slo mo shots of the girls running for balls when they have a nice bounce to show...like Major boob owner Serena. I think, secretly, WTA Tennis is one of the most erotic sports to watch for healthy men...if only more of them knew about it.
But it's a fact that American Live sports are delayed by up to 5 minutes so that 'juicy' bits can be edited out before transmission...and I bet they are too. Damn prudes.
