Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Venus playing a bit better and Mathilde hitting too many errors. I don't think Mathilde's coming back from losing the second set.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Pironkova would have eaten Venus alive today
Anyway, it feels bad seeing her not being able to play at her usual level of athleticism and hence her brand of tennis. It's always like this with champions, u know they can do better but at one point they simply can't do that anymore.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Mathilde is such a mug, shame for Tsonga because he actually performed well.

Mathilde's doing a nice job hanging in there at the moment.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Venus gets break point as Mathilde hits an easy put away well long.

And then she smashes another easy put away in the net as Venus breaks.

Garbage.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Sorry for OT but why is Brown-Ferrer suspensed for 15 minutes?

There is a small hole in the court and they are trying to fix it. The surface cracked open for some reason.
