:o

she needs to learn how to serve...there was a time in the third set when she was serving at 28% :help: amatuers can do better than that :tape: and so many break points wasted. vivi was 2 for 3 in the final set, k-lina was 1 for 6 (and she also wasted a 0-30)

Karoline wasted too many break points and she had to pay the price :tape:

I am not surprised.

I didn't think she and Venus would face each other.

Karolina :(

Six first round loses in 2005 out of eight tournaments (the two she got past the first round she made it to the fourth round where she was beaten both times by the #1 seed) :(

Hopefully you can get a second win and get back to your former self for the rest of
season!

Well done Virginia - nice win and nice amount of quality points! :)

K-Lina...I'm going to have to revive my punishment list to put you back on it :sad:

this is getting out of control...She better get it together fast or she will be tumbling down the rankings. Obviously this coaching change was a wrong one...either that or something else is going on.

I thought it was interesting that Sprem had managed to reah the 4th round at the two biggest tournaments she's played this year... until I looked up who she'd beaten :o

Australian Open: Monique Adamczak, Tathiana Garbin, Elena Likhovtseva
Miami: Arantxa Parra Santonja, Stéphanie Cohen-Aloro

Likhovtseva is a decent win, but then she's very streaky so who knows how either played. Parra Santonja is in an even worse slump, and still managed to take the second set off Sprem 6-1 :o

That said, she hasn't had any really, truly horrendous losses... mostly up-and-comers or established top players. Stosur, Schnyder, Davenport, Safina, Chakvetadze, Vaidisova, Mauresmo, Ruano Pascual... they're all good players. It's just the cumulative effect of losing to ALL of them which is terrible.

Virginia does some spectacular upsets. Remember when she defeated Martina Hingis in the 1st rd of Wimbledon?

Not too shocking of a result but Karolina needs to win matches like this if she ever wants to be a serious threat in the big tournaments.

she's a strong player but that loss was primarily caused by a back injury to hingis which essentially prevented her from doing anything the entire match.

sprem's only decent win this year is over likhovtseva and as someone who was at the match i can say without trying to be mean that likhovtseva's form was the most horrible display of tennis i have seen from a top 50 player let alone a top 20. i left it was so bad.

Yes k-lina lost...and shoulda won...but vivi must played great...after the first set klina had 30 winners, 15 UFE....and only won 6-4...she only won 34 points.....usually if you have double the winners ur doing great!...hell she had 57 winners and 33 ufe...thats a geat ratio...id take that anyday!...davenport had 49 winners and 31 ufe.... So lets not read too much into this!

yep! and what's aweful is that she's not putting in poor efforts against a lot of these players. she's just simply not winning the big points and not getting any confidence (and rightfully so). she just needs to start getting out of the first round ALL the time, and she'll be good.
