Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

She just beat Jankovic 7-6(3) 6-2 in round 2
Considering her recent form, a stunning victory. The Gulf tournaments seem to bring out the best of her...

However one nice result doesn't hide the grim reality, and I don't anything else to say about her and the coach, that I hadn't already written last year in the coaches thread:
Shahar's coach watch! Bye Pablo :sobbing: Who Will Be Shahar's New Coach???
I didn't trust him for a minute.

I wonder if Jankovic lost it more than Shahar won it. One telling statistic is that the total points winning margin was 80-58 while Jankovic has 12 more DF's than Shahar(13-1) Just taking that away makes for a much closer match.

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

I think the relative isolation is helpful to her. She hasn't been twitting also for the last 3 days (only official stuff about her result, I doubt she posts that herself).
Also she receives star like treatment in the narrow sense that she's escorted everywhere etc, but without all the pressure and stress of media attention and fan expectation.

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

Shahar first up on court 2 tomorrow vs McHale.

Christina is in good form, should be a good test.

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

It's an okay loss but Shahar could've defienately won this one. Up a break 3-2 in the second and break point at 3-4 in the third to complete the come back but it's fine.
Next is Dubai in which she'll meet Fatma Al Nabhani in the first round and probably Radwanska in the second. I'm not sure playing a big tournament and falling fast is better then playing a smaller tournament and going deep in it. Shahar needs to consider that in my opinion.

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

No news in Dubai, another R1 bye (her WC draws in AO, Doha and Dubai ), another R2 loss against a seeded player (5-7 4-6 to Radwanska).
Sure she served for the first set, saved some match points in the second and had a point to go back from 2-5 to 5-5, but it doesn't matter.

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

I followed a bit of the livescore during the end of the match. Hit a DF on GP right after saving a couple MPs.

I guess it's a bit encouraging that she had a tight match with Radwanska even though it was in 2 sets. IW is next for her?

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

shahar got nice draw in IW.. first round against Q and if she wins she'll play Schiavone, shahar won all 4 encounters on hard courts (1 lost on clay) but almost all the matches were tight (twice deciding set tie braker 7-3, and twice two sets with 1 time braker)
if she wins she'll probabaly play safarova (2-2 on hard corts) and bartoli (6-2 on hard corts)

W: Acapulco
R16: Qatar

That sure isn't a nice draw for Shahar. All qualifiers are playing well and Schiavone is always tough - even tougher if you are out of form. Shahar lost to Safarove in Brisbane last year after being 5-2 in the decider and I don't think it's possible to forget Shahar's last match afainst Bartoli.
That's one of the toughest draws Shahar got in the last year or so.

Excuses? What the?...
She has a grand slam winner (twice a finalist), a grand slam finalist and the hard hitting Safarova in her quarter.
You can consider that as excuses but these are tough players to play against and I'm not sure that in current form she can beat them.

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

^ ok let's add the classic extenuating circumstances phrase "in current form" to the list of excuses you're already making

Re: Shahar Cheering Thread 2012

If it's gonna cause a fight, quit looking forward and focus on R1.
