Kuznetsova defeats Stosur

This might be my favorite match of the whole tournament. These two are such great sports, such fantastic atheletes- I could just stare at Stosur's pipes all day long. I want to be that buff. For real. I am disappointed that Kuz didn't win the second and win in straights, but God this is such a great match!

Mary Jo thinks Stosur is going to win the third. I have no fricking idea who is going to win. I thought Serena would win and Kuz pulled it out.

Kuzy is up a break in the third! I like the way Brad Gilbert can't actually pronounce Kuznetsova. That is tooo funny. He says Kuzy not just to be cute and nicknamey, but because he can't say Kuznetsova.

I think it's possible that we will have a all Russian final, and frankly, I think it could go either way- Kuz or Safina. It could also be a good opposed to a boring one. (Sometimes, the final is a serious letdown. )

WOW! Did she go for her shots or what? I love THE KUZERATOR! I like Safina too. So, thefinal will be painful- I'll be all conflicted. It's easier when you really, really want one person to win. I will not be feeling that way. I'll be cringing, confused, elated, tortured...ah, tennis.

Yours Truly,

Apparently Brad is not alone - every pronunciation of Kuznetzova I heard at the French Open, including the umpires, got it wrong: there is no emphasis on the "e". Like most Russian names, each syllable has approximately the same weight.
