Re: Cheering thread - Wimbledon: R2 vs Radwanska / WD R1 with Makarova!

Wow what a win, so so happy for her!! Amazing way to start Wimbledon, by beating a legend. Kinda sad to see Venus play so bad too, after all her years of being great...its seems the injuries and sadly age means she is almost at end of career. But if she had to lose i'm so happy that one of my faves got the win. Best of luck next round lena

Re: Cheering thread - Wimbledon: WD R1 with Makarova!

...wow....
that was, ehrm......, not good...
The painful thing is this performance completely nullifies her great play in the first round

Re: Cheering thread - Wimbledon: WD R1 with Makarova!

That was awful

It's sucks when you have to see a player that you like, self-implode that way, with several silly mistakes..

Good luck for her in Doubles..

Vera Zvonareva / Elena Vesnina / Ekaterina Makarova

Svetlana Kuznetsova / Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova / Maria Kirilenko / Valeria Savinykh

Anastasia Myskina / Maria Sharapova / Elena Dementieva

Re: Cheering thread - Wimbledon: WD R3 with Makarova / MXD R2 with Paes!

7-5 6-4 against players ranked around 80 in the doubles ranking...

Not good, and with the Eastbourne results in the back of my mind, if I was Tarpi I'd scratch my head....
The team seems to be underperforming on grass, he might be questioning himself whether it would have been better to send Kuznetsova/Zvonareva to the Olympics. Based on individual performances in the past, a Kuznetsova on 50% and an injured Zvonareva still would perform better then these two....

Davai Vesnina!! Enough of runner-ups..

Re: Cheering thread - Wimbledon: MXD F with Paes!

6 slam finals with no title would be quite hard to swallow... her record in finals, singles as well, is quite dire but from a pure numbers perspective you would expect her to eventually take one of them, especially in doubles where she has a partner to help her out...

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

Re: Cheering thread - Next: Olympics, where losing the final means you get a medal!!!

Well who knows Mike's been checking her out a bit Apart from all the lobbing over Ves (which surely Bob told them to do) he seemed rather impressed. If Huber hangs up her racket soon maybe Bob will ask Ves to play with him

Also after the sf everybody kissed except Ves and Huber And also Huber was wearing padding under her clothes and a gumshield .

The thing is... After the Olympics will Makarova and Vesnina play on or not? And also will they team up in some MMs, too? No way they start winning finals again if they don't start on a bit of a lower level to get the monkey off their back. (Erranci stay away )

Elena is not lucky with the finals. She delivered some great shots but the other team was very solid.

Leander wasn't in a great day. But Elena reached two mixed finals with him. Better luck next time.
