This is one heck of an entertaining match!

It's 6-2 1-1 Wozniacki ight now, but the score isn't my point. These are two fairly evenly matched players, neither of them able to overpower the over. This is like fencing. Thrust, parry, moonball, slice, flat shot, lob, dropshot... it's not even halfway through the second set.


This isn't war. It's chess.


Mods, please leave this thread til the end of the match. View it as advertising. Every weekend warrior in the word could benefit by seeing the tennis being played here. It's like 1996 Hingis playing 2006 Hingis. It's not elite level tennis, but it's SO mental.


These are two players who have to work their way through a point and FIND success. Point after point after point. This is an instructional video.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Oudin's slice reminds me a lot of Graf's and that's something real nice to see.

steffi's slice was far more agressive and she used it as an option to rush to the net.

Re: This is one heck of an entertaining match!

This match is entertaining for the reason that Pushniacki's always are. I've never seen a player who has no desire to play aggressive tennis. She can't expect to win Slams playing like this?

Re: This is one heck of an entertaining match!

This is partly enjoyable only because Oudin is trying to do so many different things to figure out how to break the pushing wall.

Re: This is one heck of an entertaining match!

Wozniacki has like 4 winners and is winning the match.

Really pathetic match so far.

You have to hit through her, which sadly Oudin does not have the ability to do. Her only hope now is that Caro starts to think about the occasion.

'steady unremarkable tennis has been enough'
Mel has to think her way out of this one, Caro is unlike any opponent shes faced so far
