Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Bobusic wins 6-2 6-2 in 57 minutes. Atrocious result for Sally, seems it has been a case of one step forward, two steps back for Sally since January.

Sanders is now in the box seat to make the semi finals from this group - which TF poster forecasted this (I know someone did)

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Yeah got to sit through the Sally v Boj match.

Not much to report, no signs of injury or illness she was just playing crap. Haven't seen someone hit that many return errors in a long time. She has gone from effective counter puncher to all out aggressive player in about 10 months. She would play maybe 1 good point per game and then follow it up with errors on the second/third shot of the next rally. I think at one stage in the first set she got 15-40 up on return then hit 4 wild returns and lost the game.

Really it just seems confidence is an issue. Maybe her new style of play would actually work if she believed in herself some more.

Bojana played solid like she usually does. Didn't have to do anything really and I dont think she would have hit more than 5-10 winners in the match.

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Sally So do we think that Bojana has secured herself that last WC? I agree that Sally is now out of the running and with no other strong options I guess it is hers. I just feel that TA will be reluctant to give it to her. They didn't even give her a QWC on the back of her great ITF performances in 2009.

Liv vs. Dani and Rodionova vs. Bai now on the SB.

Samantha Stosur, Storm Sanders, Casey Dellacqua,

Jarmila Gajdosova, Ash Barty, Olivia Rogowska, Abbie Myers

Lucie Safarova, Daniela Hantuchova, Kristina Mladenovic, Sabine Lisicki

I don't think this group is quite decided yet and therefore the w/c situation. Sally would have a decent chance against Storm and barring Rajicic not springing a surprise, Boj, Sally and Storm could have 2 wins each and will go on sets.

If Storm goes through undefeated (or makes it anyway) and then makes a good fist of her semi, TA could spring a surprise MD WC with Storm. (considering Storm is the 18's R/U too). Agree I wouldn't expect Boj to be in TA's plans at this stage.

OR TA might just give the 5th w/c to Robson in a reciprocal deal??

There's more to life than just being happy.

What is Bai's problem

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
