forza.



yep. she will be playing on the same court of the 1st round anyway.

nope i'm not saying she's a crappy player but she plays a really difficult type of game, she doesn't have margins at all in almost every shot she makes. If you're not in a perfect form it is hard to win matches because you don't have a plan B or something to play around your problems. Against Flavia i think she raised a bit her level even because she was playing against a fellow italian and a high rank player but we all know that's what she does normally and i'm concerned about this match because i'm not seeing a good overall form and she won't have her usual "boost" since Smitkova is a lower ranked player.

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

okey. but i did see improvments from Hobart to Melbourne. She should have won easily in 2 against Flavia..she brainfarted a bit on the 4-4 on the first set. But her win has never been in doubt in my opinion.

Tereza is a good tennis player ok, but hse is not a top10/20 player. Also Tereza tends to gout out of matches and gifting point + her games is more or less like camila's game. Cami ROS was good against Flavia, also in the 1st set.

Forzaaa !!

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

Smitkova is good and I like her. I see her a top 40 already this year! But Giorgi is a much better player. Much more qualities and has more weapons then Tererza who mostly relies on her serve.
It will all depend, as usual, on Camila concentration and ability to limit errors especially in key moments of the match.
She has beated similar kind of players (Vandeweghe, who is actually better than Smitkova), why should not she beat her?
Said all this, am worried as well but I feel slightly better after having seen her against Pennetta. She seemed totally different from previous week and had some really good points/winners.
Ok, the Czech won easily with Lucic, but hey the lady was all messed up with injury.

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

Jojo-ing form:
Yes, her form is jojoing. Not a fatal problem, if she can achieve longer and longer good form periods even at the expense of longer bad form periods. In 2014 she could already won 4 matches in a row (at least two times), and her longest winning streak of SETs were already 9, if I remember well. And she was right on the track to improve further. In 2014 she reached 2 finals, this year she can reach even more, and her first title(s).

In the off-season she worked hard on her strength, and on her returning skills. Also she had a little surgery, so it's completely understandable to play a little rusty in her first few matches. I suppose she will be better and better very quickly!

What is more: if you carefully look at her match vs. Pennetta, it is already CLEAR, that her killer RETURNS getting really a "weapon". (She won 54% of her return games!)
Australian Open R1: Giorgi def. (12) Pennetta 4-6 6-2 6-3

What she currently needs is, to learn how to stay still for a fraction of a second before she bashes/smashes the ball. This will give her the opportunity to think cooler, and to make fewer errors. For me this is the question, for what I'm looking for the answer in her R2 match.

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

it was GOATmila tonight...she looked like a servebot, serving more than once over 200 kmh..Smitkova lokked clueless for all the match..and saving the only BP...with an ace...like she did with flavia.

OMG i am so happy..she is playing so good.

hope she gets the rod laver arena against Venus.

This performance came out of nowhere for me :P

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

AOpen 2015, R64, Camila Giorgi - Tereza Smitkova: 61 64 (http://www.ausopen.com/en_AU/scores/...y9/2213ms.html)

CONGRATULATIONS!

Cami in the 1st set played in TOTAL DOMINATION mode ! (There's nothing more to speak about it.)
In the 2nd set she became erratic, but still she was in the driving seat, and she was the better player.

In total she made 8 aces vs. only 5 DFs (and 23 winners vs. 20 UEs).
Her fastest serve was 203 km/h (the average 1st serve speed was 175 km/h).
For the 2nd serves, fastest: 170 km/h, the average: 158 km/h

Smitkova was also good at serving, her fastest 1st serve was 185 km/h, and she made 4 aces.

As it could be foreseen, Cami-Kaze Giorgi further improved compared to her 1sr round match. (And this is still not the end of the story...)

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

Awesome performance!

I like Venus but I still hope Giorgi makes the 4th round somehow.
If she can play most of the time like she did today in the first, then she surely has chances despite Venus being in a great form as well.

OMG I'm sooo happy!!! Camila finally played her best against an average player, great to see it!
Now it's Venus next, I don't care about when it will be but I'm surely watching it and supporting our Camikaze.
I'm sure Cami will play well, can't wait to see the match!!!

Re: Cami at AOpen 2015

Great performance yesterday! Solid and strong. Spectacular serves sometimes and, must say, much better FH…cross court was superb! Smitkova seemed totally outplayed and this affected Tereza performance. She is not a bad player! Now Venus. Cannot wait to see. I hope (and think) Camila will play good. Not sure if enough to win, but enough to make us proud of supporting her!

I woke up in the middle of the night and then saw Cami is playing. Plugging in my computer and watching the match was a desicion I made in 2 secs and I'm happy I did. Camila was on fire, dominating like she should. Hope she can show the same form against Venus
