Re: Point of the year?

Really nice point, but a little too clumsy to qualify for greatness. Radwanska hesitated before tracking balls down at certain points in the rally and Schiavone's attempted putaways were so weak.

Re: Point of the year?

i think what clijsters did was amazing, but yeah, i'd have to say that that is more luck than skill; i'm pretty sure all she was hoping for was keeping the ball in play.

when i first watched the aga-schiavone play i was dazzled. talk about good retrieving skills. this is what little jie is supposed to be able to do

Re: Point of the year?

I don't see what's wrong with any of Schiavone's smashes. They're all firmly hit and well placed. predictable, maybe...
