I think Kerber plays very well? Yes she may have a less appealing game than Martic does but she has a pretty nice game herself too.

Possible another SF for Angie

Supporting useless players before it was cool.

Okay, I'm glad you mentioned the moonballs in the title, because I was going to ask about that. I've never watched Kerber before, but I know she's having a great season. I was more focused on the Errani match, but when I watched the occasional points from the Kerber match, Kerber was moonballing every time! Is this her typical style of play?

Martić is so much fun to watch, I love her game. I didnt watch many of her matches before RG but I'm officially a fan since this week. Her net coverage and skills are amazing. I'm looking forward to see how she will do on grass. All the best!

It's amazing what confidence to you. Kerber has just become top10 player and she seems as though she's been there for ages playing like an experienced top player. She's an awesome match player and got the tactics right today. Congratulations!

I don't like the way Kerber played today.
How can that be succesful, no pace at all, she was very nervous, no length in shots, no good tactics.
She only made fewer errors than her opponent.
That was like Wozniacki in 2010.

Very very disappointing match from both players.
Probably because of the conditions and the pressure.

Petra has a great game style like Henin(no one-hander though) Way too many errors costed her the match. Good play from the Canary She is supposed to make the semis, guess she will.

Whenever i've seen Kerber play both live and on TV. She does nothing with the ball except get it back in play. This match was even worse. And she is a top 10 player in the 21st centuary?

No, it isn't. But i think she realized that it works against martic, who hasn't got a backhand and a really shaky forehand.

Looking for Mary Pierce, Monica Seles, Lindsay Davenport, Marion Bartoli, Angie Kerber, Flavia Pennetta matches and many many more.

Kerber looked so lifeless for her standards today. Both mentally and game-wise. Maybe she's tired after having a great year.

This is the best I've seen Martic play by far. Since Kerber was pushing, there was no danger of her FH and BH breaking down today. Positive attitude too, even her coach seemed very pleased
