I would have enjoyed watching this match. Two players I like a lot here. Shame either of them had to lose.

Oh, I do have to laugh when a Lisicki fan refers to Pironkova as Grassonkova. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Whoops, you forgot about non-grass Pattaya final

And what Pironkova did outside Wimbledon?

Err...ok...first I will congratulate Lisicki on her amazing week in Pattaya defeating the world's 108, 103, 75 and 130 ranked players. Very impressive.

Regardless even with those ranking points gained last week, Lisicki has about 740 ranking points off of the grass. Pironkova has around 930 ranking points off of the grass. And what has Pironkova done in the last year off of the grass? How about 4th round at the US Open? Lisicki, in contrast, currently has three 1st round defeats on her rankings in three non grass slams at the moment.

Romina is an all court player these days. She can handle herself on a hard court. Infact the lion's share of her current ranking points have been gained on hard. I also think she is intent this year on making a real move up the rankings and to do that she needs to play the bigger events.

Kerber was clearly tanking Doha because she was super tired from all those tough matches in Paris the week before. Lisicki wouldn't let her lose but she had nothing left in the tank for Tsveti.
