Unfortunately, she and Nadia Petrova faced the #1 team in the world (Lisa Raymond and Samantha Stosur) and the US Open defending champions. Martina still played wonderfully but her double’s partner was not very good today. They lost 7-6, 6-3.
The good news is Martina advanced into the semifinal in the mixed doubles. She and Bob Bryan won by the score of 6-3, 6-4. I got as a gift a signed copy of Martina’s latest book Shape Your Self.
I also got as a gift a signed copy of the Tennis Fundamentals DVDs from Jimmy Connors. This DVD features Chris Evert, James Blake and Justine Henin-Hardenne. I think tennis is a wonderful sport to play to stay fit. I very much enjoy watching good tennis.
