Re: Marbella R2: Safina def Pironkova 6-3 6-4
Sometimes Dinara puts together 3-4 points that make you go "ahh", that must be the reason she was the best claycourt player 2-3 years ago. Then she reminds you why she is still ranked around 80. Her defensive movement is just not what it was 2-3 years ago. If Dinara was still in the top 10, you´d say she played like she just couldn´t take Pironkova seriously. Don´t think Dinara stands much of a chance against Azarenka, but who did the last two weeks.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
