That was gross. So much choking. So much pushing. So many bad errors. Horrible advert for the sport.

Second set was 1.5 hours alone!

That Caroline service game at *4-3 in third 4 straight errors.

Nice of Barbs to thank the crowd for staying to watch it in the searing heat.

Re: Sydney QF: Strycova def. Wozniacki 7-5, 6-7, 6-4

This is right up there with that Chak-Kuznetsova semifinal at the USO. I feel like I've lost years off of my life.

Sailor Babs could have ended this an hour and a half earlier, but she decided that a romp through the Sydney heat had to happen.

Then Sailor Caro decided not to give any F's at the end. I can't.

I'm saving this thread for when the debate about WTA and 5 set matches comes up.

Re: Sydney QF: Strycova def. Wozniacki 7-5, 6-7, 6-4

This match will go down as one of the most epic of this year I have no idea how they played for that long in this heat

Dead at Strycova choking 5*-0 in the 2nd set TB and then fighting back 3-4* in the 3rd to win Apparently La Borz got an audible obscenity, did she not give a shit? Get better for Melbourne Borz, still a great week

Some good shots, and some AWFUL tennis

Babs should have never choked, but you can say that for about 10 matches per season for her. That tiebreak was woeful from 5-0 up.

Thankfully she prevailed. Ousted the better athlete, by being a better tennis player. Love the way Babs hits her BH. She carves up over it beautifully for the topspin.

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

This was the worst tennis match I've ever seen. I don't think I can process how bad it was so I'm just crying laughter tears that it's finally over.

Yikes.

Strycova will move up to a new career high ranking on Monday. She'll either be rank 15th or 16th and Kvitova and Azarenka will unfortunately lose many points in the coming months.
