Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Adamczak def. Myers 6-2 6-4. Abbie

Rajicic and Cabrera still on court.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Abbie was very erratic today and hit way too many UE's but she actually has quite a decent game. Good power on her groundstrokes and can can give her serve a good whack as well.

Todays results have changed my perspective on who should and will get the QWC's for AO. I'd now go for Rodionova, Rajicic, Bobusic, Myers, Patterson, Moore and I'd give the last one to Hon for her recent wins over Peers and Hadzic.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

What a pity that Azra's form dropped off at exactly the wrong time. She does seem a long shot for a QWC now She was doing so well a month or two back.

I was really impressed with Moore today - not that she was that spectacular but that I didn't see much of the flaws that sometimes plague her. She was aggressive, served pretty well and was moving great.

So happy Bojana had a good win. I hope she can push Ashleigh a bit.

Glad Viki had an easy win. So much potential there.

And Tammi, wow. I missed that much but great to see her get such a big win!

And thanks heaps to TA for putting on such a great livestream. It really is a treat to be able to watch such a quality stream at an event like this. It's interactive, entertaining and we are spoiled with multiple cameras and replays etc. It's great. (but not great for my productivity at work!!)

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Way to go Tammi Olivia will get a WC anyway.

Priscilla

Some surprises today.

I'm loving the top half of the draw. Someone who probably wasn't in WC consideration to begin with, will be making the final

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

I was tough on Keir earlier, after watching the match again she played quite decent (compared to some other girls today) but was just no match against Barty.

I will upload a small vid of Ash's great shots later

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

^ were you there as well?

I laughed at Keir's tantrums and her 'where did that come from' after she hit an ace

She was just outplayed by Barty though, and Keir is a bit big as well

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

haha, yeah Keir was funny to watch with her tantrums. i always like watching players like that, Groth and Kyrgios yesterday was great i didn't get to see Liv's match, but the result isn't too surprising, a bit like Casey's loss last year to Barty.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Sally was also having tantrums, 'it's gonna go there' after her 100 forehand went long

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

How did the players look and play live compared to watching on TV?

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events
