Re: ~Petra Martic~

Won 6-2 6-4

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.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Friedsam def. Nara 6:3, 7:5
Martic def. Kerkhove 6:2, 6:4

Not much to say about Friedsam, never played Petra, has (this match included) 18:3 win-loss ratio in the past 7 weeks, during which she beat our Ana Vrljic twice, both times in straight sets, but has also lost this year to another of our Ana's (Konjuh) a few months back on clay. Of course, Ana K. is great on clay, while Friedsam feels more comfortable on hardcourts, but it's still worth mentioning. Friedsam obviously can't keep this form going on forever and Petra is playing pretty solid tennis lately, however PM will have quite a big task ahead. And now all we need is for streaming to get back for this match.


Good luck Petra!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Congrats, Petra

Friedsam is a talented young german player and i expect her to become a TOP-50 player at least. Her serve is very good, and unlike most of the WTA players she is quite impressive on her second serve. She also has a strong backhand, whereas her forehand is a bit shaky at times.

She twisted her ankle in december of last season and also received a knee injury during the wimbledon qualies, and that's why her season hadn't been that successful until July. But after that she won two 50ks and a 25k, so at the moment she is an in-form player.

Nonetheless i expect Petra to win, because i still regard her as one of the greatest talents on the WTA tour and under normal circumstances she is the better player.

But given Petra's erratic performances of late, i expect a rather close match, something like 64 75.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Here's how Petra's point breakdown looks at the moment:

AO 5
Florianopolis 1
IW 5
Miami 5
Katowice 70
Marrakech 1
Cagnes-Sur-Mer 1
Rome 1

RG 5
Nottingham 110
Nottingham II 18
Wimbledon 160
Budapest 30
Bad Gastein 30
Toronto 30
Cincinnati 30
Quebec City 30
Ningbo 1
Beijing 1
Linz 1 - 16th result, to be replaced next
Nanjing 22

With current points from Taipei (22-1 for replacing Linz) she can't move higher than roughly #114 and in order to reach AO MD ranking (#108) she needs about 50 points. A win against Friedsam would get her close to that (44 points), and two more wins (85 pts for the tournament) would surely be enough. Of course, there's still Dubai to be played next week and luckily (if we can call that lucky) Petra has enough 1's in her 2013 to be replaced so a bit less to worry about.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Well, considering ALF lost a set to Mrdeza and was beaten by Ana K. (both of whom are good claycourters) maybe we're in for a pleasant surprise. Petra's defensive skills and that slice of her's in particular could maybe do some damage.

P. S. Doubles today (with streaming) around 1 PM CET.

Doubles match is underway and it's streamed...or so they say, cause when you start the streaming all you get is a white screen...

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Just confirmed a break in the 2nd set - 2:0*; this win alone would be enough for Petra to get back to top 80 of the doubles rankings.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Wasn't easy, but a win is a win (6:4, 7:5) Next up is Chan/Xu, yes the same Xu who teamed up with Doi last week in Nanjing to stop Martic/Zheng in the semis. Here's hoping for some revenge.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra's match could start in about 30 minutes (maybe) and none of the streams from Taipei are working at the moment. Why am I not surprised...
