Li was totally outplaying her and then makes 3 doubles at 5 all.

Unbelievable.

Exactly. It makes the whole concept of watching tennis and supporting anyone so futile.

The chokes...

Re: I am sick of watching the players chocking like that against Serena

It's Serena Williams, the most dominant player of her generation and a double-digit Slam champion. And they're playing her at Wimbledon on Centre Court with the whole world watching. Li isn't the first player to choke at the thought of taking a set off a Williams Sister and won't be the last.

Re: I am sick of watching the players chocking like that against Serena

You saw Stosur make great shots to break Serena in Paris.
Serena is playing as the favorite, she has more pressure on her.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Same as Sharapova double-faulting twice in the tiebreak. Without that she played a better tiebreak.

Not everyone has the fortitude of Pironkova. Makes her win so much more impressive

Re: I am sick of watching the players chocking like that against Serena

That is the benefit of being a top player and having won so much. You build an aura.

Sharapova has benefitted from some chokes too.

The reason NA-LI is choking is because she is hitting her second serve like her first.

Serena Williams GOAT
