Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Great game by Kata to hold to 4-4, saving another breakpoint. Commentators on Belgian TV say this is the best match at RG so far.

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Kata 6-4 *5-4. Good variation by Kata and Serena making the errors.

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

OH MY FUCING GOOOD!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE THIS GIRL!

I was in bed with the TV vaguely on, then the commentator said "Serena Williams is in deep trouble, a set and 4-5* down with her oppoenent serving for the match", and i thought OMG THAT's KATA!

So I ran to the TV, to watch MP!!

OMG!!!!!!!

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Kata was so happy at the end, I really thought she could blow this, I even said a little prayer

OMFG, GM is gonna be mental.

I wonder if Julien was able to see this

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Nervous final game, Kata quickly going up 40-15, then missing the two matchpoints, getting a third on a Williams ball that landed just beyond the line, and then finishing on a Williams error. An ovation from the crowd as Kata clinches both fists and walks to the net beaming with joy. Serena graceful in defeat acknowledges Kata's win with a smile. Kata returns to the court to wave at the spectators, signs autographs, also on the camera shield. Finally a big win at a grand slam. The commentators are very pleased. A perfect performance (except for the first serves) and Kata's consistency at RG is finally rewarded with an upset.

Doesn't surprise me

My Dad said my name, then said Serena is MP down (he was watching the TV) so I rushed to watch MP#3. Nice play I thought, hitting it deep right into Serena's forehand, and Serena's FH CC can easily break down, which is did on MP

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Kata was mentally very strong in this match, and generally had great shot selection and perfect execution. Great reflexes at the net, too, and a couple of fine lobs and razor sharp passing shots. She was the better player, and showed great resilience in the tough service games.

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

She was very strong when saving the bps in the second set. Although I'm glad that Serena didn't give a chance to be more nervous thanks to all the UEs. So fun to watch.

No.
