Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

It's such a shame this match is so outside. The quality of rallies is amazing.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

Whenever Lucie gets any kind of lead in the match she pulls out some of the most obviously deliberate misses I've seen. Blatant tanking. Hope I'm wrong and she is just playing that inconsistent, as I'd like to see her progress.

Hopefully one of them is not Radek Stepanek?......

What's wrong with Lucie? This should have been an easy early round match for her.

Se has had enough of Oeiras it seems, not much more to it. As an underdog Polona has had to do bare minimum to take a very easy and comfortable lead.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

Every time the WTA or ATP see what looks like a tanking effort, the Tennis Integrity Unit should get involved.

It helps the game, eliminates slovenly, bad play and keeps the field on their toes.

Safarova has just given this one away... What a joke.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

No visible sign of injury, a bunch of 0-30 opportunities on Polona's serve wasted. This is the same Safarova who nearly bested Sharapova. An off-day Sharapova, but still Sharapova.

WTA needs to clamp down on this crap post-haste. It's terrible for the game, especially when this tournament is already a joke for crowds and credibility.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

Perhaps Lucie still wants to win this match after all....2-3 for Polona in the final set....in Stuttgart Safarova was capable to win 5 games in a row vs Sharapova in the final set, from 1-5 to 6-5...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

I think I might turn off the stream of Polona-Lucie .. when I'm in front of it , Polona loses, when I'm away she takes lead ...

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Gets back into the match, goes 30-0 up on her serve, loses the next 4 points with awful shots. Back to square one.

You put way too much faith in an inconsistent player like Safarova.
