It is also mentioned on the WTA site: http://www.wtatennis.com/page/Scores/

Don't know if she's really injured, but I think it's better not to play in Luxembourg.

Re: Angie in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Sharapova's comments:
Quote:
"I thought we played a high level of tennis in the first set and a half, and even though the scoreline was 6-0, 3-0 there were many games that went to deuce," Sharapova said.

"She had a few break points and long games on her serve," the Russian added, saying Kerber was probably lacking fitness at the end of a long season.

"I actually didn't see much of her injury. I was surprised she called the trainer and even more so when she retired quickly after that," Sharapova said.

"The schedule takes its toll on everyone. It's a normal process. If you feel like it's too bad, you've got to take care of it."

Re: Angie in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Ist glücklicherweise doch nicht so schlimm. Laut Kerbers Management sei die Aufgabe eine reine Vorsichtsmaßnahme. Die WM sei nicht gefährdet. Als Vorbereitung zur WM soll sie in Luxemburg spielen.

Re: Angie in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Ich weiß nicht, ob das so gut ist mit Luxemburg.
Andererseits wird es in Istanbul schon sehr schwer werden, dort überhaupt eine Match zu gewinnen.

Definitiv. Angelique hat sehr viel gespielt, irgendwann ist der Tank leer. Sie wirkte sehr müde

Sehr gute Beobachtung. Stimmt wirklich

Stuttgart Kvitova
French Open Errani
Eastbourne Paszek
Olympia Azarenka
US Open Errani
Tokio A.Radwanska
Peking Sharapova

In all diesen Matches hat Angelique gegen Gegnerinnen verloren, die an dem Tag ihr bestes Tennis ausgepackt haben. Die Gegnerinnen hatten wirklich einen ausgezeichneten Tag erwischt. Vielleicht geben sich die Gegnerinnen auch extra viel Mühe, weil sie wissen, dass man Angelique nur mit Tennis auf hohem Niveau schlagen kann. Angelique hat auch den Nachteil, dass ihr ein starker Aufschlag fehlt. Das merkt man gerade gegen die Top-Gegnerinnen.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Radwanska in Tokio und Sharapova in Peking waren einfach unschlagbar. Ich hoffe Angie zweifelt deshalb nicht an ihren Fähigkeiten. Schließlich ist Tennis 51% Psychologie.

I have changed the title, so we can talk about Istanbul here too.

Group A

Victoria Azarenka
Serena Williams
Angelique Kerber
Na Li
Very tough. Group B with Sharapova, A.Radwanska, Kvitova and Errani is definitely the weaker group. I guess Azarenka and Serena will reach the SF. Just hope Angelique can beat Li.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Looking forward to the match today. Kerber played great against Serena in Cincinnati. I think she'll keep it competitive today but I expect Serena to win.

Man sah jetzt doch recht deutlich, dass Kerber gegen Topspielerinnen chancenlos ist.

Kerber Koukalova

Re: Angie's last tournaments in 2012 (Tokyo/Beijing/Istanbul)

Played well, I feel like the scoreline looks a little harsh on her. As always, her liability is her serve, she tried to go for more on the 2nd serve during crucial moments and double-faulted both times. If she wants to stay in the Top 5, she'll have to improve it during the winter break.

All in all, there's no shame in losing to Serena, and I hope she can beat either Na Li or Azarenka so she doesn't end the season with 4 losses in a row.

Mist, da wäre ein Sieg mal so wichtig gewesen um diesen Serena Fans und Kerber Basher mal ein wenig ruhig zu stellen.

Re: Angie's last tournaments in 2012 (Tokyo/Beijing/Istanbul)

Mir hat das nicht gefallen. Kerber ist nicht auf Rang 5 gekommen, indem sie einen Winner nach dem anderen schlägt. Sie ist keine Kvitova oder Sharapova. Normalerweise ist ihre Stärke, dass sie kaum Fehler macht und die anderen die Fehler machen lässt. Aber heute hat sie mehr Fehler gemacht als eine Williams.

Für mich spielt sie mit der falschen Taktik.

I think it's clear Kerber is exhausted both physically and mentally. She's had a hell of season and I hope she remembers that more than the way it's ending. I hope she gets a lot of mental rest in the offseason and works on her serve. She's good enough to stay in the top tier of players.
