9 winners: 21 unforced errors in first set isn't great. McHale wasn't much better but crucially she converted a break point. Elina 0 of 7.

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

everyone. My first post here. That was a tough match for Elina to lose but I'm sure she'll bounce back.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Disappointing.. Hard to win when you converted only 2 of 19 break-points

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

I can't believe she lost given the recent form of the two.

Kind of a wasted opportunity IMO but whatever. Still a good win over Cibulkova in R1.

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

I am worried about how she's comparing with some of the other young upcoming players. Unlike Elina they've gone further in slams and had more wins over top 50 players.

Robson, Keys have gone deeper in slams. Bouchard managed to push top player to 3rd set (Serena, Kerber)

I am not saying she should be the best among them, but I don't want her to be dominated by those players either.

I didn't watch but the choking on those BPs must have been immense Anett style

I don't think she choked as much as she didn't do enough - too passive. McHale was actually pretty clutch on a lot of the BPs and I think she is playing better tennis now than she has all year.

Didn't watch the match. Was the pro-American crowd difficult to deal with for Elina?
