How can somebody as talented as Kleybanova lose to Llagostera Vives

I donīt get. Llaagowhatever Shites commits seven double faults, has a 1st serve percentage of 48% and you still lose. I donīt get it. Itīs like Brazil playing Indonesia in football, Indonesia plays like crap and Brazil still lose. I donīt get it. Explain it without using the words "Shites has some ability and can actually play", cause she canīt.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.

Nuria is a great player. If if wasn't for some bad injuries, she would be a solid Top 50 player.

Also Nuria is one of the smartest players in the circuit. She toys with the young players quite easily.

Kleybanova powerful strokes must have been off today, because the other player just retrieves everything!

Tennis isn't just about who hits the ball the hardest.

Seeing both of these players separately, it IS hard to imagine Alisa losing.
