so about the finals.. everything has been said, but here is my opinion anyway..
WTA: it's becoming a joke. word number1 defeating no.2 3 and 0 in less than an hour. This match was so disappointing, Safina just had no idea what do. She's an aggressive player, that's all she can do, that's her game, and when she faces someone who does it better than her, she's cluless because it's not like she can turn into good defense play or something. Plus, she double faulted as if she was a girl in an area tourny tsafon
(sorry I had to
The main problem is, that this is how the tour looks lie now, 3/4 of the players are all the same, same aggressive and ballbashing game, losing to player/s (serena and Venus)who play whenever they want and not committed to the tour 100%, and they are the girls who win all the majors..Thank god for Suarrez Navarro who played such a good tennis against Venus. She won it without being a ballbasher.
About the men final..
We had 4 sets of brilliant tennis, about the 5th set I'm not going to talk.. the gazillion UE's that Roger hit speak for them selves..
But TBH, Roger could've and should've won it in three sets..
In the first set he led by a break and I think he also had bp's in 5 all,in the 3rd he had plenty of bp's during the sets, especially in 5 all..And then he double faulted in the SP
It was his match to win. He's a better tennis than Nadal, and damn it's so frustrating to lose to a player you're better than him just because he beats you in the mental section..
Once again, like in all of their matches that Roger lost (except the RG last final..) it was all about Roger not taking his chances.. Nadal played great yeah, but Roger was better. Except in the important points (such as bp's, sp's..)
The thing is, that if anyone still thought 2009 would be the year to win RG... It's not going to happen.. He can't beat Nadal even if Nadal would come on a wheel chail to the match. So if he can't beat him in an hard courts slam final, how would he do it n a clay slam final?
It was so sad.. "it's killing me"
It killed us too
Btw, Rod Laver him self said he wanted to give the thropy to Roger..
