Farina Elia drives me mad!!!!

sorry but this girl could have won so many matches!!!


last year she could have won canberra after having MPs against Suarez, also had MPs over Clijsters(Ter 2 Q/F) and Mauresmo (Tier 1 Q/F). She had match points agin Lisa Raymond aswell in Zurich I think.


she had set points against Capriati in Doha aswell!



This year she let slip a set nd 5-2 lead to win and just got through 7-6(8) after 7 match points and then in the next round a set and 5-3 and again lost her nerve and lost the match!


against Schnyder in the last round Silvia was 4-1 in the final set but let Patty back in at 4-4 before crossing the finish line! Then tonight against Serena Williams she had 2 SET POINTS at 5-4 and lost the game and set 7-5!



WHY CANT SHE EVER HOLD HER NERVE???????

What about her WIMBLEDON performances?
Sly plays beautiful tennis, and I'll say it again; the most
immaculate 1-handed backhand on tour. Justine's is a whiplash
super sonic version; but Silvia's is elegance.

dont get me wrong but the year she reached the Q/F she played Rubin (7th seed) in the 3rd round and struggled to serve out and had 4 MP if my memory is correct! She couldnt have easily lost that match I believe if she lost her serve at 5-3

She led 5-2 in the third set of the rome Semis last year didn't she?

She's such a great player, who has GREATLY underachieved IMO...her choking frustrates me too.

She also had a big lead against Granville in Memphis 02 or 03..I cant remember..she lost the match eventually..but it was like 2 hours and 45 minutes..I was a ball kid and I remember they wouldnt let me go to the bathroom because Silvia was supposed to win quickly..yea right..and I had to hold it the whole time

fuck.

well if you looked at the stats you would see patty did from 3 winners and 8 unforced errors in the set at 1-4 to 12 winners and 9 unforced errors by 4-4. then she finished 12 winners 13 unforced errors.

kind of sounds like it was patty who was dictating.

Yeah, unfortunately she IS a choker.

And for her it means that on break-, set- or match-points, she makes errors that she would normally not make, like missing basic shots in a baseline rally. Why, I don't know.
