Puig is definitely determined, credits to her; but it's nothing an in form Kerber shouldn't be able to handle in straights.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Kerber's attitude really annoys me; she's developed quite an ego. Does she think she's the fucking Venus Williams or something?

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Honestly you watch Puig and you watch Wozniacki. Can you seriously tell me she is not better than Wozniacki. 2010/2011 was really a dark dark time for the WTA.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 25 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 25 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

I've seen players play worse and win against decent opponents though. I agree it's bad, but it's not "dismal". She isn't handing Puig tons of points out there.

I think the comparisons were between their attitudes, but I agree with you there. Yulia actually looks quite nice off-court though.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Lot of work to do on that serve, but it´s the correct decision to try to beef it up.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 25 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 25 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

I do think Angie has hit many more UEs than usual.

What a game from Julia to get the break! She's 2-1 up in the 3rd set

Angie needs to just calm down and refocus.

She has committed over 25 unforced errors, DF's 6 times and held serve once. You have a strange notion of what giving points away is.

Hey, whatever works for the player for them to play their best. Can't have a smile on your face and be happy all the time.

Actually, I find her to have one of the best attitudes on tour usually (aside from that suspicious withdrawal against Maria last season). She has good sportsmanship values and has fight in her.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol24

Finally a quality game by Kerber.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 25 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 25 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)
