Re: Womens Tennis in General

Jimmie48 (or anyone else) how do you feel about tomorrow's Kerber/Errani match? I know you aren't a fan of Kerber but I think she probably has the best chance of stopping Serena. Errani I don't feel would put up much of a fight.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Sigh. Robson broken for 4-6 2nd set finally breaking Stosur's serve.

Stosur was generally poor for the match aside from some serving, Robson was generally awful rom 2-1 1st set 40-15 up (2 gps)

I really don't thin Errani can beat Kerber but I sure would welcome it.

I kind of don't want anybody to stop Serena before the final because I want Vika to beat her there for the title.

If this were clay I think Errani would have a good chance of winning.

Serena is a pretty bad matchup for Vika.

A few years from now it may look perfectly normal.

Serena is a bad matchup for everyone, yet people manage to beat her all the time. Who would have thought that Stosur can beat her?

Vika is in splendid form and if she can beat Serena it's on HC...

Re: Womens Tennis in General

I would quite like to have four different slam winners this year...I guess I'm hoping for either Petra or Angelique to win (sorry Jimmie48).

All the time is definitely an exaggeration.

Vika can't hit Serena off the court like Stosur can nor can she retrieve well enough to get a bunch of errors from Serena.

Vika's ground game is as good as Serena's and she's much better when it comes to rallying and angled shots. Vika obviously has a weak serve, especially compared to Serena..so she was bound to be helpless on grass.

Whenever Vika could get her into a rally in London, her chances of making the point increased dramatically. Serena won't be getting as many free points on HC as she did on grass.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Argh. It's really annoying that there's 3 Wta matches on at once.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Vika wins 6-2 6-2

Even though she had to work quite hard it still turned out to be quite the comfortable scoreline.
