USO QF: (10) Errani def. (20) Vinci 6-2, 6-4

Matches like this really expose how overrated Radwanska's craftiness is. Errani simply targeted Vinci's backhand and broke it down completely. Radwanska isn't even capable of varying her spin enough to replicate this tactic.

Also at everyone in the Radwanska - Vinci thread saying Vinci had real variety when she is terrified to use her drive backhand 99% of the time.

Congrats to Errani, she is such a tactically sound player. If the player on the other side of the net has a weakness, she will not pass it by.

Also congrats to Vinci for a great run over the hardcourt season well deserved slam QF for her career

Errani showed why she's the higher ranked player. And to tell you the truth, Vinci is not much taller than her.

Errani slays all normal sized, passive and underpowered foes (and of course it helps if you're her doubles partner, and knows her weaknesses).

Maybe Roberta wasn't as cut throat as Sara, playing her partner?

And I like Vinci. Congrats to Sara.

Boring match, to be honest. So flat. Never seen Sara with so little emotion. Very understandable though. The hug at the net was super cute, so was Sara applauding Roby as she left the court.



I still can't believe Sara's year.

That was the worst Slam QF in years.

Kvitova - Kanepi WI 2010 came to my mind, but no.

Vinci was beyond ridiculous. No backhand was not sliced. None.

Vinci would have troubled Errani much more if only she'd used her slice backhand a bit more often.

Errani

I wouldn't be surprised if Serena got another double bagel in the Semis

But well done to Errani, this has been such a surprising tournament

Vinci is errorprone and it was NID Errani would outgrind her, Vinci also has more trouble to finish at the net obviously as ERrani is also very solid there.

Re: USO QF: (10) Errani def. (20) Vinci 6-2, 6-4

Errani now heading for #7 This is just getting insane. I know everyone thought that Kerber was a lock for the most improved player of the year, but surely Errani is going to get that now?

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

Expected, well done Sara amazing year for her. Top 5 here she comes
Too bad she doesn't have any success in big tournaments outside of slams, but maybe this will come soon.

Re: USO QF: (10) Errani def. (20) Vinci 6-2, 6-4

Roberta was horrible but as always I´m able to find some possitive things on this run, she was playing well enough last weeks, so I´m not mad because of this match.

LOL @ people surprised Vinci has using slice backhand that much, you surely aren´t watching girls outside TOP 15, are you?
