Cool Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:


great work for pushing and playing out of your mind!
i never actually really bothered about players who don't perform or less skilled.
but today ms. pin showed me something different and you don't have to be a top player to almost beat a top player.

Re: Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:

Yeah, it was a good performance. But I've never seen anyone gain then lose so many fans so quickly: people jumped on the band-wagon, excited about an upset--that this girl was showing such grit and giving it to Maria--but then they jumped off when she choked the match away.

Re: Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:

Putting this incident aside, Pin's game has improved in the last several months, anyway. And she was fun to watch tonight, even though I expected her to choke, which she finally did. But she gave the spectators unexpected thrills, and performed stoically. Nice to see.

Re: Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:

she looked so tiny alongside Sharapova. She kept the ball in play and played a great match.

Re: Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:

Yeah, hopefully she won't be considered such a joke on here after this performance. I felt so bad for her after she lost though. Great fight though.

Re: Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:

Sharapova and Pin played under the same conditions...

Maria couldn't cope with the heat as well as her opponent... Now I'm supposed to feel sorry for her just because she's fit enough?

Re: Hands down to Camille Pin! :worship:

Camille said after the match:

"I was so close that I thought it was my day but apparently it was not, so next time."
You have to love her attitude. Camille has a really great attitude to the sport. I have never seen her swearing or crying when she loses. She played Bartoli in the Japan Open semis last year and only won 1 game yet Camille walked off the court smiling and signed autographs. She always stays calm Next time will be Camille's day
