Kiri avoids the bakery products in the first set.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Why did they put this match as the late night match?

And that 1 missed serve was a foot fault. Ruined her 100% first serve percentage.

Boring. Serena should play with the men, or retire. OK it's not her fault that she's too good.

The, because it is Serena and she is facing quite a popular glamour girl.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

I still think Serena is playing better than Sharapova. It's just Serena tends to have more lapses than Sharapova.

Because it suits Serena. She can't take the heat.

I don't really know how Kirilenko becomes top 20.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Kiri is trying hard. If only she can serve better and make lesser UEs it will be more competitive. Her shots are way too long. Make Serena run.

By not playing one of the greatest players of all-time every week?

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Serena was nervous in the first game, but is a lot calmer now.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol26

Kirilenko is not going to consistently overpower Serena anyway, so she might as well practice her groundstrokes for a while. Phenomenal footwork allowing her to do it. Really impressive.
