FOK FOK and DOUBLE FOK ... Makarova couldn't serve out 2nd at 6-5 and played a terrible tie break Unlucky with a ball, she didn't challenge, but ... *siiiiiiiiiiiighs*.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Sam Stosur takes first blood .. 2-0

On serve from Sam's early break. 4-3 now.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Can Agnieszka finally halt the Garbine Muguruza Blanca juggernaut?

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Serena up to 8 aces. And good on her because she already looks a bit winded out there.

Nods. Yes, Serena's game style is what in technical terms is known as 'Brute Force Tennis' ..

Re: Womens Tennis in General

I suppose, from Caroline's ranking point of view, a Serena Williams victory would be preferable ..

Sigh, the "Garbine" and "Muguruza" I have no trouble with but the "Blanco" trips me up. Stupid three named players. Still, it's easier than Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Yikes, I think Sam needed to finish this in two, I'm not sure that she has it in her to come back now. You would think that a long match should favour her but I'm not sure about that.

Why we shorten her to MJMS and make her sound like a STD

Sam had her chances in that 1st set. Famous last words (and I see S.Williams is now 1/10 on) but I can see Sam Stosur taking 2nd.

A stream if anyone hasn't already found it yet : http://www.sportlemon.tv/v-2/18/58/v-385957.html

German commentary, but stream is pretty good.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Ah, Li/Lisicki just underway, this should be an interesting match. Neither one of them are playing great at the moment but I have high hopes. Li should get through this but a lot depends on how Lisicki serves.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Sam Stosur missed a couple of break points to go 3-2 up and next played a sloppy own service game a was broken to 15..

Hmmm. Stosur saved .. 2MP to only be 3-5 behind. Then was up 40-0 and had another adv, but failed so lost 7-5, 6-3 ..
