Re: WWW: Peak Davenport vs Peak Kvitova
Well, Ludmilla has the power and variety to repeatedly hit the sidelines in a random unpredictable fashion (mostly because she plays completely by instinct and without any sort of tactics at all), and it would have been much harder for Fatvenport to simply stand in one place midcourt and clobber balls that kept coming back to her.
BOTH of them suffer from the same complete lack of desire to be a champion, deeply introverted and slouching about court full of talent, but uncomfortable with the pressure it brought.
Fatvenport on the other hand had a little bit more willingness to play ugly and grind it out...
so...two tough sets 7-5 5-7 and then Ludmilla decides she is suffering from Hypothermia or something and loses the third 0-6.
