Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as



I like that she runs down balls that are nearly impossible to get too. She puts in that extra effort, and I like watching that.

Congrats Shahar! I know it's tough being in the first Tier I SF, but I hope you raise your game even more next time like you're capable of

Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as

I think Serena's figured Shahars game at the end there. But calling Venus didn't help much in the first set.

Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as

I was impressed at the beginning, but don't know what happened after the first game of the second set.

Her second serve looked better today than I've seen in the past and it was holding up pretty well, but she needs to get more on that forehand to really start contending.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as

Serena didn't play well in the first set. Some of it was due to Shahar, but she was way off.

OMG at Nicole and esp Maria!!!

Well done Shahar. Well played first set. But it is open knowledge that big servers always have advantage in tiebreaks.

You shouldn't have gone away in second set. Especially with Serena's tentative play in the very first game. Take your chances next time girl!

Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as

She is great to watch, and she definetly pushed Serena the most so far. I like her fight too, she never gives up. Even down 1-5 she tried to push Serena in that last game. I definetly think she has a bright future.

She did not. Shahar was emotionally very furious and I can understand her. while she has to work for every service game in the first set , Serena was blistering first serves so hard that Shahar couldn't get a single break point. it went in this patten through whole the first set, so Shahar was slowly getting more and more devestated and I can understand that. in the second set , she went 2 levels down missing easy balls and giving Serena a really easy time. She had 2 break points , I thing in the second set and she gifted them to Serena, what a shame.

yea, but those encounters are from last years downwards and Peer was a different player back than.

Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as

i'm sry but Shahar must be pissed off at her self this year....

she's so close to be that player that absolutely no one wants to play, but she hasn't produced a big win yet on a big stage. she's pushing them, but fizzles near the end. but the ground work for a potentially troublesome player on tour is already there, so kudos for her fighting spirit. she's still a little fragile though....we're pulling for cadet Peer :-)

Re: Shahar won as many games against Serena as

Shahar plays with so much intensity in the 1st set, by the time the 2nd set comes around she is drained
