You’re Not Mother Theresa, and You’re Not in the Finals

June 8, 2007 at 4:08 am 4 comments

Mother Theresa will not be in the women’s finals of this year’s French Open.  A collective sigh of relief, please, that Maria Sharapova has been smacked down on the red clay.  Guess she was too busy pretending to be a dead nun because we know she can’t do that and win a match, right?  Oh what a sweet sound it was to hear that Ana Ivanovic won 6-2 6-1.  The same thrashing score Serena Williams had on her in the finals at Australia.  But I was equally crushed that Justine Henin beat Jelena Jankovic 6-2 6-2.  Jelena did such a great job and had some great matches.  Perhaps now Ana can get some well-deserved endorsements.  I still think that should be part of the tournament.  Winner take all, including sponsorships.   Speaking of winners, congratulations to the first Roland Garros champion of 2007.  Mixed doubles team Nathalie Dechy of France and Israel’s Andy Ram took out the seasoned and extremely attractive pairing of defending champs Katarina Srebotnik and Nenad Zimonjic, 7-5 6-3.  I guess I shouldn’t have thought two much about this prediction.   Speaking of wrong predictions, what about Czech pair Lukas Dlouhy and Pavel Vizner, huh?  Where did they come from?  I mean, I know where they’re from and a little about them, I mean like an appearance out of thin air kind of “where did they come from.”  Perhaps they’re to blame for Nenad’s doubles loss.  I’m sure Fabrice Santoro didn’t have a great day after the match, either. 

And finally, the talks-of-separation-pair Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor continue playing like they’ve got nothing to lose and the clay gave them thanks in their defeat of India’s Mahesh Bhupathi and Hingis’ Radek Stepanek … her Czech, you know. 

 

Tomorrow brings us great play from four of my favorite guys, Roger Federer against Nikolay Davydenko and Novak Djokovic will play Rafael Nadal. And then the ladies’ doubles final.  Of course I want to see Novak and Nikolay in the finals and maybe I’ll see Novak, but it’s really just not going to happen.  Federer and Nadal are headed for a repeat, I fear.  At least the match will be pretty awesome to watch.  Then Katarina Srebotnik and Ai Sugiyama will take the crown from the amazing run of Alicia Molik and Mara Santangelo.  And right after that, I’m calling up the voodoo doctor and sending them a barbie doll in tennis shorts, nose pinched, eyes looking beady, and we’re going to have a talk about the women’s finals on Saturday.

    Ivanovic is just as hot, hopefully she continues to be good so she’s around more often.

    … from the Armchair Tennis Pro … I think Ivanovic is one of the top 3 lookers on tour. And her playing has gotten amazing.
