Club night (22)
Club night mix in this week had the usual suspects. My regular doubles partner and I were both struggling to find some form and clawed back a set from 1-5 down to eventually win it 7-5. It wasn't pretty tennis and we both just cut down the errors and ground out the win. The second set was better and we deserved it 6-1.
I see my predictions in the previous post have jinxed both Lindsay Davenport and Kim Clijsters with the two French women in the final at the WTA Tour Championship.
So Lindsay finishes no.1 anyway, which after thoughts of retirement is amazing reward, and Kim has had a successful come back year topped with her first Grand Slam.
So what of Pierce v Mauresmo. The popular vote has to be for Mauresmo who has never won a Grand Slam and to win the year end Championship would compensate a bit for that. Can she hold her nerve though?
