Nottingham SF: Konta def Rybarikova 62 75

There will be Brits in both singles and doubles finals of Nottingham tomorrow!

Great stuff from Jo. Commiserations to Rybarikova who has an excellent and unconventional game, which is great for grass. She was undefeated on grass this season up to this point. Hoping she gets a good draw at Wimbledon.

It did look like maybe Rybarikova would make a comeback and take the second set. But Jo remained too solid. The last point of the match was great.. Rybarikova's last shot missed the baseline by inches.

Another very tricky match negotiated with relative ease by Konta.

Im assuming she would prefer Vekic in the final.

Safarova might randomly peak in the final.

If there has been any hype, she's deserved it considering she's won three titles over the last two months and was on a 8 match winning streak up until this match.

Yeah, I find Konta's game unbearable to watch. Her movement isn't fluid at all, just box-like and it looks like she's in a panic. Her strategy hasn't changed from day one, hitting the ball hard from side to side and aim to end the point as quick as possible. You could put highlights of today's match with any one of hers from last year and they would look exactly the same. The better players should have her figured out by now, just mix it up and don't play baseline tennis all the time.

Would have to disagree....her movement in Miami this year for example was better than in Miami the year before. She has improved her consistency leaps and bounds so it's difficult to come forward or take Jo off of the baseline these days if you're not playing really, really well or are not a top player.

Definitely doesn't look in a panic. I saw her live today for the first time and she was remarkably calm, especially under pressure situations. She also isn't *just* bashing the ball, she's become more patient in the last few months. There were many instances today where Rybarikova sliced to Jo's BH and Jo opted for the short angle or a deeper midcourt rather than rushing to end the point.

Rybarikova DID mix it up - a lot actually. Many dropshots, slices etc and tried to move Jo around but to largely no avail overall - yes she won some points off of it but Jo coped very well with it. Jo has an under rated passing shot as well, so net rushing isn't a guaranteed working tactic against her either.

Anyway, as for the match, am so happy to have seen Jo win live and also serve well today - I'm talking more about what she did off of the first serve rather than just the percentage itself. Also mixed up the serve well at times in pressure situations, was really using her head. she'll be the favourite against the tired Donna tomorrow but I doubt it'll be easy, she needs to keep the standard up that she has had all week. Let's go Jo! There hasn't been a british WTA title winner winning a WTA singles final in Britain in over 30 years.

Re: Nottingham SF: Konta def Rybarikova 62 75

It does seem a TF board meme to jump on the Konta bandwaggon and claim you didn't like her game, which come mostly form her serving tics, even though her backhand is as natural as anything and her movement has always been good when she is playing well. Like with the claims of pushers a lot of TF posters apply what others say even when it clearly isn't applicable because of some mob mentality.


Anyways, so happy for Konta and Robson and Rae, especially with Nottingham being the latter's hometown

Well said.

Yes me too, neither have a WTA title of any sort so would be a big deal and a huge boost for Laura's confidence I would hope! Would prove to her that if she was as loose in singles as she is in doubles, she'd be doing better.
