Re: CRO girls on US open 2008

i think i'll go watch sanda and try to catch some of jele.
petra played a great first set, but then fell apart. she needs to hit the gym to get some more power on her shots. her forehand completely fell apart towards the end of the second set and she lost confidence in her serve. in the first set, o'brien was having problems getting any of petra's serves back. i'm going to have to post videos/pics this weekend

ugh, why do they all suck????????

ps franko skugor played a hell of a match yesterday. also, sanda was at petra's match giving her support and the british coaches were all impressed by petra, but also all thought she needed to get stronger

Thanks for all the info, nice to here Sanda cheering her compatriots, as well as about the praise on Petra's expense from experts.

Franko plays a bit later than the girls today, so maybe you can catch some of that too. I hear he's like a male version of Mirjana Lucic - firing bombs from all angles (but that he still lacks precision) Although, he'll have to do more than just hit hard today against Ascione. Hope he goes through these qualies.

A breadstick served to Jelena, while Sanda won her opening set 6:3.

Re: CRO girls on US open 2008

i think jele will win, almost of these games she had one of more game points, so i belive she still has chance to win.

Re: CRO girls on US open 2008

0/6 - no comment necessary. Well, at least Sanda will jump some 30, and Jelena about 10 places in the rankings, so it's not a complete disaster.
