Never realised what a HQ match that RG QF was... (SW vs SK) Highlights

Wow, there are some amazing shots in here and the video is high quality too. I never noticed as I was so anxious cheering Rena on. But wow, Sveta really played phenomenally.

I still think it was one of the best of last year. Only thing better then Sveta's play was her mental strength, after wasting almost the same lead against Ree in Australia.

This was a good match all the way around. I believe if Serena can play like this this year she will win Roland garros. Is was. Mental lapse that caused trouble with this match.

Just goes to show when Serena's confident, it translates in her game, some of the shots she hit without grunting, so cleanly for winners and Svetlana couldn't do anything.

But, even Serena Williams with her mental strength found it too hard to win Roland Garros considering her HIDEOUS clay court results and form prior.

So much credit to Svetlana here.

I just have to say Serena Williams is fucking amazing. I can't describe it. Her play from 3-5 down in the first set till about 6-5 ish was phenomenal. Shame she kept getting tight.

She CAN play on clay, those drop shots, volleys and angles she was hitting to set up points.

Great match! It was nice seeing how Sveta and Serena kept applauding each other's great shots in the first and second set.

Re: Never realised what a HQ match that RG QF was... (SW vs SK) Highlights

I admit I was very disappointed after Serena blew a lead in the third but oh come on, she rebounded from a 3-5 deficit in the 1st set, and then rebounded again in the 2nd. So... at some point her luck/mental strength was gonna take a toll.

And yes, Serena can really play on clay if she gets in the right gear.

Re: Never realised what a HQ match that RG QF was... (SW vs SK) Highlights

I didn't watch this match because the idiots at channel seven or what ever that australian chit is called decided it was more important to show the riveting Stosir vs Cirstea. And when that was over they switched over to Serena-Sveta till Sveta was about to serve for the match when them tards decided to show Federror and Monfails WARMING UP. *smh*. God i was SO disgusted that day.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

I have feeling she will so this year, but will be able to keep it together, she'll have less energy lost coming in this match, than usual. And is probably already practicing on clay as we speak

Yes. Cirstea and Stosur were scheduled on Centre, and this was on Lenglen. Oh, the mistake they made.
