I'm so sick of Stosur

with her floaters, kickers, overhits, unforced errors and the inability to execute at important points. She blew a lead in the second set after leading 5-4... She needs to pound the ball and be more aggressive if she wants to beat players like Clijsters and Henin.

Re: I'm so sick of Stosur

She makes some reeealy mind boggling decisions sometimes. Like at 40-30 on Kims serve, she hit a weak drive volley straight to Kim when she culd have hit it anywhere else, or hit an overhead.

Re: I'm so sick of Stosur

then i wouldnt recommend you watch sveta either... and she's a 2 time slam champ

EDIT: although she can pound the ball from time to time as well... and when she does, she usually wins

Re: I'm so sick of Stosur

The most predictable patterns of play of any player bar none.

Kick serve-forehand-kick serve-forehand. Of course no compensation for her leaden footwork on the backhand, that renders her almost incapable of hitting through the shot with any kind of balance or base.

Stosur is a competent player, but i've never seen her as a top 10 player at all. I thought she'd get there naturally due to her US hardcourt run last year, but she shares very few elite traits.

Totally with you there.

She hits that fh way too often, and her opponents can "predict" when its coming so move where they need to be and just push the ball into the open court while watch sam at full stretch across the net. It's infuriating to watch!

both are playing very flat. both were feeling ball great today. of course it was bit one dimensional as they dont use slice or top spin, but still great match. for this part of the tourney very good match. of course it wasnt the best i have seen, but woman tennis is shit in global. 95% matches are shit and this was good.

Re: I'm so sick of Stosur

Ive been say this for ages, she has no brain, no execution plan...

With that serve and those volleys, she should play way more better than she plays, if she constructed the points well, she would be ranked way higher...

Those frames are disgusting to see, and that backhand, she just prays its going to be inside the court

Re: I'm so sick of Stosur

I thought Stosur played better than she usually does, this match was better than the earlier one at least.
