    Marija, did you get to see this match? I didn't, but the first thought I had was that Lindsay isn't yet up to two days in a row in that humidity.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't watch the match. My first thought was that Dinara would fall to inspired Lindsay, but that's what's so great about tennis — you never know in advance. There are so many factors that influence a player's game, and we who just observe them rarely have the full picture.
    You may be right about humidity, I'm not sure. Lindsay won Bali, and I believe it's humid there too.
