How can somebody as talented as Kleybanova lose to Llagostera Vives

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

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

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.
