The stas say 19 unforced erros to 5 winner for kuzzy and 9 erros to 1 winner to anna, not currently watching it.

Is Anna winning it or Kuznetsova losing so to speak (19 UE from her but only 1 winner form anna)???

when i say getting more of a contest have to admit it's a bit relative. More evenly matched but poor match to watch

This match is hilarious! I can't take my eyes off it... just when you think the quality of play can't even worse, we see Chakvetadze attempt a forehand again.
And who said the final would be a walkover for Henin/Venus?

and he is wrong!. Piers says this on the commentary -

2014: "Am i the only person left who's interested in this match? well....its only because i did a double bet Kuznetsova and France!"
From Andrew in Coleraine via text (France have just gone 6-3 up. Shame that)


Actually, France have just gone 6-3 DOWN....

Very poor game, though. But hopefully the decider will be better.

ok so it's one set all with everything to play for. Kuznetsova's looking nervous and Chocvertadze's looking like she's posing for a modelling contest - agressively.

Have not access to watch this one, listening to I think Tony Jeffers and the ever so grand Frew somebody or rather. Frew sounds like my old headmaster with some 'oh so exact commentary, appropriate examples from the days when he played in South Africa' Tony on the other hand much more down with it.

But I get the impression that the match is so topsy turvey. '10 breaks of serve in the match so far!'

for those without sky sports...... Chakvertadze is wearing a Salmon pink dress with fine pearl earrings and a delicate necklace. Her skin is like burnished gold and as she turns there is a bright rosy glow from her neck..... her forehand is however poor

Actually it's Chakvetazde that's the bundle of nerves and getting thumped not the other way round although Kutsnesova is almost as bad. One thing is certain, it's totally irrelevant who wins this because the champion will come from the other semi-final and these two are here only because of the horrible lopsided draw. Had Jancovic or Serena been on this side, it is they who would be fighting this one out.

Why all the cattiness in the commentary?
Both girls are playing a lot better than Serena did the other day...

Are we to expect the same patronising tone if there's a Davydenko v Ferrer final on Sunday?

OMG that was soooo boring. Hoping Henin/Williams will wake me up. Basically whoever wins this one will take the title. Kuznetsova's got nothing to threaten either one.

well, that was a strange match!
erm
Anna C has a very weak serve. It's almost as bad as Hingis' serve!
smiley
If she wants to reach a Grand Slam final, she needs to vastly improve her serve. Did she have a single ace in the match?

And generally she needs a lot more power if she's going to have a chance of beating the really good players....

I think the right player won that match....

Anna C only got to the semis because the bottom half was incredibly weak. That, and Sharapova and Hingis self-destructed!

Already, the first game in the second semi is so much better in quality than the entire first semi! Henin breaks....

Hello again Piers.
Fashion notes for US Open.
Nike - huge failure except for TMF & Maria's outfits. All the other Nike athletes looked terrible.
Adidas - failed on the Mens front - too 80's but all the Adidas ladies looked good.

"think I'd rather watch chak v kuz than williams v henin"

I have no idea why you'd say that....

The quality of the first three games has far surpassed anything in all three sets of the first semi!

Venus and Henin are charging the net at every opportunity! You don't see this in men's tennis any more....

Henin leads 3-2, one break of serve. Much better than the chaos that surrounded the first set of the first semi!

Absolutely, Maxx! The difference in quality couldn't be more stark....

Henin's strategy seems to be working, so far. Attack the net where possible, go for the corners, keep Venus pinned back.

This is the real final! What a smash!

That ninth game was fantastic! Henin ran from one side to the next, and finsihed with a great passing shot. Then, Venus finished a point with a great volley, and wrapped up the game with an ace....
