WTA: Off in Asia...

The women were in action again, too, with comeback mum Lindsay Davenport leading the way. This week she wasn't destined for the final, but made a deep run at the China Open before falling to Jelena Jankovic in the semis. Jelena got a bit of revenge for Bali, but needs to learn not to hit balls at her opponents between points, or Lindsay just might take her down out in the parking lot after the match!

Jelena followed that win up by choking the final away against....Agnes Szavay! She hasn't gone away! Jelena won the first set, and was up 5-1 in the second, which she eventually lost 7-5, and then went on to lose the final set. Hey, at least I feel better about my game when I see the pros do this.

Szavay was once again well dressed in that halter top that I love:

I tried like mad to make an avatar out of this, but just couldn't get the size right, and ended up making a nice one of Momo holding the Venus Rosewater dish. By the way, Momo played this week in China as well...but was defeated by Peng Shuai if I remember correctly (too lazy to go back and check now).

Also winning this week was Maria Kirilenko in India:

She had the easiest time this weekend, winning 6-0, 6-2. Nice to see her playing well finally! The doubles winners in India were Vania King and Alla Kudrysomethingorother (aka the girl who almost beat Venus in the first round of Wimby). Nice result for Vania, and that will help with Fed Cup doubles duty.

Tatiana Golovin also won this week, defeating Srebotnik in three sets in the Slovenia Open.

Hi Topaz. Great entry. Actually, I think the WTA needs to watch out for Agnes. I reckon she is a force to, um, err, reckon with.

Hey, thanks for the link to I appreciate it. By the way, we're booming lately with over 2600 members by the end of today.
