Re: Su-wei Hsieh New Start Cheering Thread
Su-wei was not playing well against Brengle who has a powerful forehand. Su-wei was bothered by some of the calls and was not serving well at all. As always, she relied on breaking serves to win the match. There were many well-disguised shots coming off Su-wei's double handed forehand and backhands that really confused Brengle. Sometimes Brengle just watched with disbelief that the balls went to unexpected places. Even though su-wei eventually came off a winner, she was not satisfied with her play. Brengle is a good player. After all, she has had a great junior career. I also watched Su-wei's 3rd round match against Barrois. Barrois can serve well with strong forehands. However, her backhand side is a lot weaker and mostly uses slices rather than top spins. Barrois was very disturbed by some of the calls. There was even on one occasion that she thew the racquet down to the ground and yelled at the chair empire. I don't think she really recovered from that. Su-wei was serving poorly as usual during the first set and gradually got better. She even got some service winners and aces in toward the end of the 2nd set. She finished the match in style with her favorite drop shot.
