Re: » Simona's Livescore Thread » USO R4 - Halep vs Pennetta

Pennetta just refused to play

On the third day of this year's US Open it also started raining and play was suspended on all courts minus the one Venus was playing Jie Zheng. Reason: Venus wanted to play because she was coming back in the set

With only one point to get to win the second set, I'd much rather be the server. Fitness is an issue; so if they go to a third, then the break will have benefitted the less fit Pennetta. But that makes the rain-break a toss, if you ask me. First Halep has to get to a third.

Yea, the rain is really helping Pennetta, but I'm happy on how Simona played this set, she would have won in the 3rd. .
What I'm really happy about is that she is enjoying the game, i have seen her smiling a couple of times .

They are poor, no money for such thing. GSs should be organized in Romania, we have here lots of roofs

Re: » Simona's Livescore Thread » USO R4 - Halep vs Pennetta

My thoughts so far:

The rain break just before SP definitely sucks, but on the other hand I'm pretty sure the rain hindered Flavia in that very last rally and was one reason why she pushed that harmless backhand long. It may could have stood 30-40 and then the rain might have arrived, who knows?

Thus said, Flavia was nearly flawless in that first set and Simona probably unprepared after that gift of higher ranked Kirilenko the round before. She was surprised by Flavia's resistance and got steamrolled after a couple of too many errors. Especially her defence is astounding, no comparison to the trainwreck tennis we saw from both at Bastad earlier this year.

That second set had me standing on the edge of my seat with all the close balls, net cords and wasted BPs. I'm glad she still went for it with that nice forehand return that got her the important break back. While Flavia's level dropped afterwards, Simona grew in confidence.


By the way, guys, tone it down in the live commentary thread. Simona's latest results will attract haters, success always does and I guess that many people still have a hard time that one of the most underhyped prospects of recent tennis history is starting to make it big right now. No time for unnecessary fights there.

I was thinking the same thing...anyway seeing this match...they have pretty similar games...only that Pennetta is a taller more experienced version of Simona, with our girl not being such a headcase...anyway a blogger in the twitter-verse said something about the first set...we forget that Flavia invented the Halep gameplan...so true
