Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

Whew. Maria wins the 1st set tiebreak 7-5 from 0-2 to 2-2 to 2-5. Stay focused Maria. The match is 1 hour 10 minutes long.

Maria was down 5-3 1st set.

Coco. Clearly wrong there.

Kiri still too passive in winning the first set 7-6, I really hope she raises her level.

Actually the double-hit call was borderline, since the rule states that unintentional doublehits are allowed. It happened so fast that I don't think it was on purpose. But her momentum made it look like she had a second push at the ball. I think that was accidental. It's a judgment call though, and the umpire's decision is final, so not much anyone can do about that. Anytime you doublehit you're at the mercy of the umpire's judgment.

Coco didn't really lose that set because of that one call anyway. She lost because she played poorly after being 5-2 up in the tb, and also when she served for the set.

Looks like Kiri is safe now, the momentum is firmly in her favour and Coco has gone off the boil, although this is the best Coco has ever done in a GS maindraw singles match.

Kiri has definitely been too passive. Her serving has no aggression.

Maria breaks for 3-0 2nd set at 40-30 from 30-15 to 30-30 (2nd serve) (2nd serve there) on a 2nd serve. Hold Maria.

Yeah it definitely was a close call, but I think she really had to move her racquet to make the second hit, didn't seem unintentional to me but who knows. Great reflexes nonetheless.

Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

And she wins. But not really convincing. In the end, Coco made too many errors, as she is apt to. But Kiri needs to step it up if she wants to do well here.

Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

Got the job done, though nothing impressive.

Next up is Chanelle Scheepers.

Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

The 2nd set was better but she didn't do much. Against Scheepers, she'll have to be more aggressive to take her revenge from Dubai...

Yeah definitely. It's good to get the win but Maria definitely needs to start playing more aggressively. She always does well when she's aggressive but doesn't seem to implement that game plan too often. Maybe it's a confidence thing.

"That's not my wonder! It's just a smelly sock!"

Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

She was very passive, hit quite a lot of balls in the middle. Good thing Coco started making more and more errors.

Play better next round Maria.

Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

Is she not playing doubles with Vika? OH NO. What am I to do without Vikkiri as a doubles team in a slam?
EDIT: Nevermind this, I wasn't paying attention. What I get for being an idiot.
Good luck against Scheepers by the way.

It's gonna be totally awesome.

Re: Lets do this Kiri!! - Roland Garros

I think she should be more agressive.She was a bit passive in her first match IMO but glad she kept fighting and won

good luck in the next round!
