Re: Christina McHale

I have to admit that its a little worrying that every match Christina has played since RG has been a struggle

*3-2 in the third now.

Re: Christina McHale

So frustrating She had a great chance to reach the final or even win the title. A bit of a wasted opportunity

I didn't know that I could! I've gotten use to them not showing a damn thing. But, maybe it's best that I missed this one. Surprised that Bartoli won it. She seemed unable to win any of the important points until right at the end. I thought x-tina had it.

ugh, i know. thought she had control of the match in the 3rd with a break but she got broken when bartoli hit 3 or 4 service return winners, all on 2nd serves.

when christina was playing well, it was nice to see that inside out forehand and some nice finishes at the net. but i also thought she wasn't consistent enough the whole match.

Re: Christina McHale

It does seem like Xtina really has to grind out these matches to even get a win nowadays, not sure whats going on. I watched the match against Bartoli, and I was just shocked at all the shots she was hitting straight back to Bartoli, time and time and time again..... Like, Marion is not the best mover, so I have no idea why Xtina was not trying to move her some..I love Xtina, but even I was getting annoyed.

Re: Christina McHale

I really thought she had a great opportunity to reach the Carlsbad final too. Still, I was proud to see her playing well on several points. She looks like a better player now than she was a year ago, which gives me hope for the future.



I always like to see Christina hanging out with Mary. It's too bad she can't have someone like her in her corner full time. Maybe it's the opponents, but the Fed Cup Christina seems to play on a different level.

Looking forward to watching her in the Olympics.

Re: Christina McHale

She faces Ivanovic in the first round of the Olympics.

Not really expecting her to win that with her recent form
