I miss her, too. All of my faves are either retired or virtually retired. It's amazing that I still care about tennis so much!
Your avatar makes me miss Monica too, with a passion. I wish I still cared about a player to that extent.

Please do. The only match of hers I have on DVD is the Venus/Wimbledon epic.

I've been dying to rewatch their Berlin match and her other Wimbledon '04 matches. I think used to own her Montreal match vs Golovin and one of the Davenport matches, but now they're nowhere to be found.

And I feel your pain. My three favorites are Kournikova, Golovin and K-Lina. WTA is dead to me.

Can I end this post by saying I desperately need some K-Lina back in my life since she's basically retired, and I love you lots and lots and whoooooooole bunches. xox
I would love to see those finals of Karolina again too.
Just not the one against Myskina please, awful tennis, but I guess that is vintage Karolina too.
Kolkata SF would be better.

I already had Montreal match on youtube and dailymotion countless times and they always delete it along with my account.

I tried to search some matches of Karolina which were never uploaded anywhere but I have no idea where I put it.
I'll try to find it again.

No player makes me so excited like Karolina did.
I always wanted to see again her Wimbledon 2004 match vs Shaughnessy.

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread! vol2

Watching the 04 Berlin SF now. What an incredible talent she was, and a ridiculously breathtaking shot maker. If she had started playing tennis earlier in her life and really received proper coaching as a youngster, she could have done so much more with her career.

Still, what a joy to watch when on form.

That's my all time favorite match.
The best Karolina ever played and Venus during her career best clay court form.
If not for injury in this match I think she would have won RG that year.
But Karolina played flawlessly in first set and at amazing level untill the end of match.
I always missed her intensity during play later after 2005, it just wasn't there anymore.

You must. And forget DailyMotion and YouTube, just upload the full matches as torrents (by far the best/easiest way) or on a server, then you don't have to deal with copyright issues and slicing the match up into highlights.

I really don't think so. Even then, she was a bit too erratic to be a legit slam contender. She could have done damage though. And I agree that after 2004-2005 there was a belief & youthful, fighting spark that sort of left her.

Oh what could have been...

Any way you can try to upload this in full? That way Nate won't have to and he can focus on sharing other stuff.

I did upload the Berlin SF back in the day, though it was on Megaupload which no longer exists so I'm sure all the links are dead. I'd be willing to re-upload it for you guys if you want it. Sharing is caring!

I have no idea how to upload stuff...I'm completely clueless when it comes to that sort of thing. I can't even use torrent sites beyond things like wupload.com that are easy to download.

How do you even upload from a DVD?

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread! vol2

Yes over Wimbledon match, level of play was so much better in Berlin.
Wimbledon has greater meaning though of course.

Nate, it's on you.

If he doesn't come through, I'll eventually send you a detailed step by step process on how to do it.

I'm gonna re-upload the Berlin match and the Strasbourg final just so I'm doing my part here. Oh and maybe what I have of the Fed Cup match against Clijsters. I'll do the full matches first, and then from there I'll try to make highlights for YouTube.

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread! vol2

Agree about Berlin level of play being better than Wimbledon. Karolina must have hit a million winners in that match, and there was never really any big dip in her level, it was impressive throughout. Venus was pretty awesome too.
