Re: 2014 American adventure (Cheering Thread)
I'm pretty sure Nightcrawl3r didn't mean to say they have a relationship outside tennis
Of course I didn't mean that.
WTA Cincinnati (USA), R64
(9)Ana Ivanovic (SRB) d. Sorana Cirstea (ROU)
Sorana was 2 points away from winning the second set when up 5-4 30-0
And before that she was 4-1 up. But I guess that means nothing when Sori is on court.
It was probably the best televised match in the last months from her though.
Ivanovic played very very well.
The worrying thing against Safarova was that she was probably serving as well as she can now ....
I'm not on the same page here. IMO, the service game is poorer. She might be afraid to "force" more, because of the recent shoulder problems (look at the 1st serve % , 1st serve pts won and DFs)
