Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

Liezel blew the set point in the SF with a horrible inside out forehand volley.

Lisa constantly set them up to break the Russians in that second set, but Liezel was useless. Liezel really held Lisa back. And their goal was to get an Olympic medal, that was the goal as a partnership, they didn't, so time to call it quits for next season.

Lisa is so sad

And not to mention, Liezel was broken every fucking set.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

I am so depressed. They really should have won that. I am so pissed at Liezel.

Please win Mixed Bronze. Please win Lisa that Bronze, Mike!

I really want a Lisa/Vesnina 2013 partnership. Vesnina always compliments Lisa. Vesnina is what Lisa wants; a young player with hard strokes to set her up to put volleys away. And maybe Lisa can help her get over that Slam hump if she doesn't at the US Open Mixed.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

That would be a really good partner

Or maybe she could partner with Nadia

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

i would imagine that they had a plan to assess their partnership after this year anyway, with the olympics out of the way. Depending on the US hardcourt season, we could see that assessment made sooner rather than later.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

^They shouldn't break up before the YEC. They will qualify together easily. No matter how pissed I am with this team, they still get the job done against most and beat Vesnina/Makarova and Radwanskas this week. Finish the year out and try to defend all their big points together. But 2013 is a different story.

They have #1 for AT LEAST 5 more weeks. I expect them to lose it after US Open. Since they have 4850 points to defend from US Open, Tokyo, Beijing and YEC.

Agreed

But with the history with Liezel, this partnership could end today.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

So sad for Lisa- she played so well today. Liezel was, and has been since Miami, the weak link. She can't seem to put her volleys away and is getting tight at key moments (just look at bp chances today!). I think she is also too slow and that hurts as her first volley is not good enough to pick up the returns from where she is hitting them
- behind the service line.

I wish lisa would pair up with someone else for 2013- just not sure who. Vesnina is a good option and they do get on well but
not sure what the status is for her and Makarova and lisa with Liezel.

I think lisa still has the hunger for more so maybe she will make a change!

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

^She should want more. But in all honesty, if she wins that 2013 Australian Open Mixed title, I couldn't care less what happens the rest of the year for her.

Lisa/Mike's to do list: Win Bronze and Win AO Mixed
