Re: Arantxa Rus

I give her a decent chance in this match. Stosur struggles against left handers and of course on grass, It will just be important for Arantxa to keep it together.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Man, I'm so proud of her
It's 2-0 in the second for Stosur. Time for another 6 games in a row

Re: Arantxa Rus

I really don't know what happened in the first set cause I could only tune in from the 2nd, but Sam owns Arantxa atm. She might be playing badly (errors still all over the place), but it seems like she successfully changed her game plan. Backhand slicing works excellently for her and Rus is just not able to hit winners.

Re: Arantxa Rus

What a disgusting set so far how Aran won the 1st is beyond me. Sam selfdestruct-mode I guess.

Re: Arantxa Rus

I don't see how she can take another game playing like this. Now Arantxa should change her gameplay too. Just try to go for the winners more, add some variety. But I don't think she's able to do that?

Arantxa-Grass = pushermode so far.

Re: Arantxa Rus

only followed the audio most of the first set.

Commentators said that Stosur stopped hitting the slice after the first 2 games... that's why Aran won the set.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Stosur

Arantxa did pick up her game in the 3rd so far Much better angles, deeper balls.
