Moonball Mania: 2 Amelie Vs Conchita

LOL I can just imagine this match: most of the time both women will be moonballing, with Amelie taking initiative to dictate some of the time. At those times, Conchita will be 10 feet behind the baseline

Amelie is not a moonballer, just hits with a lot of topspin. Conchita will have to be quite aggressive if she wants to win. She can't just wait for mistakes.

People talk as if all these girls can do was moonballing
I hope it will be a nice match. And I would love the winner to take the whole tourney (well unless Momo faced Myskina at some point)

Yes she throws in the occassional moonball but she also throws in the occassional drop shot, volleys a lot and plays with lots of spin - I think the technical term for how she plays is called all court or variety.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

i hope conchita can really hit deep and high moonballs onto amelie's backhand. conchita's the better player and should win, but is she fit and fast enough these days? she looked good when i saw her at wimbledon 2r

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.
