Yes. I agree, 2013 is gonna be a BIG year for Miss Robson.

I have a feeling she could dig deep at the AUSO too.

Enjoyed what I saw of this match. Congrats to Su-Wei, some great stuff

Also very nice to see her win a title that won't have an asterisk placed next to it, like at Kuala-Lumpar

Good week for Robson as well.

Fun match to watch. Congrats to Su Wei. Great week from Laura. That first title can't be far away.

You say that about every single player. What kind of "variety" does Serena have? Right. Junkballing isn't the universal panacea you suggest it is. Works for some players but not for others.

Match went as feared, attrition eventually wearying down Robson.

Yes, it's quite bad.

Who woulda thought Su-Wei would be winning 2 WTA titles this year. Such an amazing run here in Guangzhou.

Laura will get many more chances I'm sure. Everything I've seen from her so far was really good.

Su-wei! I had a feeling people shouldn't have been so quick to say Robson would take this easily.

In that particular case against a player like Hsieh I tell you that playing paceful tennis is not the right tactic. It's weird cause when Robson put spin and hit the ball in the middle Hsieh was not comfortable but she remained with her tactic which is hit hard. Powerful tennis cant always win even if you're name is Serena. Tennis is a whole game with many many strategies and a player has to think and use variety more often. But well that's my opinion

Re: Guangzhou Final: Hsieh def. Robson 6-3 5-7 6-4

Congrats Su-Wei!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
