the match was good :) although nicole made some mistakes, she hit some awesome winners & really made sveta earn it. sveta played well too & both players returned well :D

but i don't think nicole's loss has to do with her match last night, that is no excuse. sveta was the better player & was more consistent than nicole. if nicole was a bit more consistent she could of pushed it to a 3rd set.

somebody saw the match?

Yes i saw the whole match. Nicole play was ok but she hit soo many UE on important point and literally let Kuzzie back into the match 5/6 times...her BP conversion was a poor 3/12 aswell.

Kuzy played solidly and allowed Nicole to self destruct :rolleyes:

Poor Quality match overall and Kuzy will be thrashed in the final against Henin based on that performance.

It's more than "choking"... its Nicol's "big SF" HEAD-CASE... 0-12 now...
She convert 0 of 6 BP before Sveta broke her in 1st... or best example - she lead in 2nd set TB 3-0 but lose TB 4-7

She have talent, have weapons, have game... but her mind is still not ready for big things.

I thought it was boring. Both wasted chances and made heaps of stupid errors. Especially Nicole... :tape:

good luck in the final

Don't waste your good luck on her. She is going to lose in about 46 minutes.

ZZzZzZzZzZ.

Bring me back to the days of Williamsx2, Davenport, Seles, Capriati, Pierce, Hingis in her prime.

(For the first time ever, perhaps) I completely agree with you. :D

At least when Serena, Hingis, etc. had their dominant years, it was exciting to watch. :help:

Sveta was a great player last year she just lost many finals. If she can win some of the titles that she could of won last year she'll be ranked #2 for another year. Why is Sveta under valued on this board?? She is going to win another slam soon IMHO. I want Justine to win cause I picked her on my tennis game but I know SVETA is bound to break thru soon.

I agree with you Dawn that Sveta is very underrated. But her H2H with Henin is seriously depressing :help:

2-15 I think?

Jan 10th, 2008, 05:39 AM
Very disappointing loss for Nikki. :( Once again she blows many good opportunities like missing out on the break chances in the first set and then blowing a 3-0 lead in the second set tiebreaker. Nikki still has a ways to go if she wants to move up the rankings.

yeah-it wasnt an overall brilliant match and the conditions were hard on both players because it was really windy so there were a lot of unforced errors from both but Sveta found a way to win :D.I hope she picks up her game in the final though :)

Good luck Sveta !! :bounce:

I saw Kutze play a couple of matches live this week, her form is very very good, very powerful tennis and she seems more motivated than usual. BUT i think she does have some sort of mental problem against Henin. She needs to completely disregard reputation and fight like hell in the final, especially since ive paid good money to go see the final he he he

Alright match, Nicole's problem is she tries to smack the hell out of every ball which when it works, works great, when it doesnt leaves her frustrated and vulnerable...like today

hmm, it was in parts but it was a scrappy match that was hard to get into. Both made quite a few unforced errors but sveta hit a few less and played decently at the right times.

This has take about half-an-hour to post, wtaworld is acting terribly for me today

Give the girl time. Besides, she's going to do big things in 2008 because I just got a feeling when I saw her play against Jankovic. :)

goldenlox
Jan 10th, 2008, 12:34 PM
That really wasn't the best of Jankovic. I'll bet she's still feeling that injury from Perth.

This final is not a big final.
The final Justine and Sveta played in NYC last Sept., that's a big final. Also RG 2006 final, Justine-Sveta.
A big final is coming in 2 weeks.
This final is a practice session for Melbourne.

At least she has won 2 matches :shrug: unlike Nicole , Ana , Jankovic ...

Apart of the Williams sisters and maybe Pova I can´t imagine a better rival than Sveta for Henin
