Re: Womens Tennis in General

The sad thing is that if there is any play today poor Kerber and Pennetta will be banned to court 17. A slam 1/4 final is a highlight in their careers for those girls and they will have to play on a small-ish court to empty stands while everyone is following the action on the three main courts.

Yah, it's a sucky situation.

Caro and Yanina Wickmayer had to play their US Open semifinal with a very small crowd on Armstrong back in 2009. Caro has gotten other chances to play grand slam semifinals with full crowds but Wickmayer hasn't.

Totally unfair in my opinion. They should fit them in somewhere on a big court. Same for Caroline and Wickmayer in 2009. Having to play the biggest match of your life in such a setting - the lack of respect is annoying.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Is there a reason why they can't cover the courts when it's raining? They would spend less time drying the courts because they wouldn't be so wet.

Sam Stosur takes out Vera Zvonarëva 63 63

My favorites: Caroline Wozniacki, (Patty Schnyder), Samantha Stosur, Julia Görges, Natalie Schiller. Your favorites may differ.

Congrats. She'll probably make the final now.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Grrr, can someone please explain to me why Vera is incapable of defeating Stosur? Yes, I know, Vera did beat her twice in 2004 but what is it about Sam's game that she has trouble with?

So after losing seven matches in a row (now eight) Vera still hasn't figured that out? Can't she just take the balls early?

Vera played so great to take out Lisicki, I'm a bit gutted that she went out so easily.

The score is pretty dissapointing considering how close their last 2 matches were.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Serena has won and I for one am glad. Not because I care for her but I don't want Caro to reach a slam final without beating a top player along the way.

Why? Make zero sense to me and no doubt to Caro... you play whomever is there.
