Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

I think Monica is not playing her own game - she's trying to match Venus and she can't do it. Not many people can.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

The other player who was compaired to Santoro was Patty Schnyder and although I don't completely agree Patty was one hell of a crafty player and she would certainly be testing Venus out in different areas of the court and not just waiting for her to miss like Monica is.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Sure the fact that Venus is a lot more aggressive on return has made a big difference but if Monica loses this match to Venus, as seems likely, it hardly seems to me a shameful result. Others might think differently but that's the way this forum works.
Venus shouldn't have that many possibilities to play well behind her serve in the first place, if she's serving like this. Monica's return game is just bad today. Also when they're in the rally Monica does nothing to keep Venus moving or to take that aggressive baseline game away from her.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

I'm pretty sure that I would beat Niculescu in a tennis match.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

Niculescu had a great game plan against Dani and she executed it well.I don't get why she is not trying to reproduce that.Sure Venus moves a lot better than Dani but it would still make a lot of damages.
