Re: Womens Tennis in General

Vika almost plays like a retriever today...no initiative, hardly on the offensive. Add a piss poor serve to that and youŽll end up with today's scoreline

We know nothing about poor serving retrievers here.

Vika breaks for 1-1 2nd set after saving a couple of game points. Vika with better returning and actually hitting some winners.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

3-1

If she holds now she has a great chance to force a third set.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Maria's serve is really in the crapper now. If she doesn't turn it around the score could get a bit embarrassing for her.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

It's in Vika's hands now, she just has to hold to get to the third.

Embarassing scorelines don't seem to really bother Sharapova (6-0 6-0 loss to Davenport in 2005, 6-0 6-1 loss to Serena in 2012).

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Vika seems to fare better when she's on offense instead of defense.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

6-2!!

Much better from Vika in the second....very nice.

Interestingly, both girls have a perfect record in three-setters this year, one streak is going to end.
