Srly, hits an attacking FH, then takes 2 extra steps behind the baseline, and then fucking loses the point.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Jovanovski technically may be a really bad player, but her fight is tremendous to see.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

There's gotta be some drill to force her to go against that natural instinct. I mean look at that last ROS, she's hitting off the back foot.

It was fun!

I enjoyed seeing Sloane's game get dismantled.

On a side note, Bojana really cannot volley at all.

This kind of tennis won't cut it. And that's why i appreciate Madison Key's tennis more, granted she also has lots to learn, but she won't back down.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

How many more short angles do you have to be beaten by to see that your court positioning is shit?

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Is Bojana screaming "Jaja" during rallies in reference to the Empress?

Supporting useless players before it was cool.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Yup. Sloane's become way too passive, and Bojana is loving all the hitting practice.

Sometimes Sloane can get a bit resigned to defeat when she gets behind. Hopefully she makes some adjustments and fights.

And you make that statement about me chosing a player based on her look (or race) based on what ?

Yea the rallies were great.

Eventhough I love sloane, I kind of want bojo to win because she is taking more risks.
