I remember saying that about a match or two last year. If Tennis Channel is able to expand, I'm hoping that will mean more Christina coverage.

Re: Christina McHale

^ Guys, there will no doubt be a livestream if Kuznetsova is the one she plays... I'd be more than happy to post the link here if there is one!

Re: Christina McHale

That's cool of you to do that. I don't use high-speed connections, so I'm still looking forward to when she becomes a regular or semi-regular on TV.

She's interesting to watch. In the speed department, she seems to rival players like Zvonareva, Radwanska, and Clijsters.

Re: Christina McHale

She lost to Kuznetsova 6-1 6-1. Didn't expect it to be so one sided.

Re: Christina McHale

I watched the match guys... as hard as it is to believe, Christina did not play badly. Sveta was just THAT good. I am one of Kuznetsova's biggest critics due to her mental midgetness and sloppy play, but I had nothing bad to say about her yesterday. She played incredibly. Just crushing the ball from side to side, hitting amazing angles, closing out the net... it was amazing tennis. Easily the best match I've seen Sveta play since the 2009 clay season.

Christina was hanging in the rallies and pulling the trigger when she got the chance, but it was few and far between. Christina's return game was a bit lackluster, but that was in part due to Sveta's amazing serving (literally she had no weaknesses yesterday).

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Christina McHale

yeah, watched about 2/3 of the match and i feel pretty much the same. didn't think she played badly but sveta was at another level.

and for some reason, i don't think she's playing this coming week. she was supposed to be in sydney Q but she's not in the draw. hopefully, she didn't get sick or injured.

Yes, it's a bit of a concern.
