No surprise... as usual Sveta falters when there's any kind of pressure exerted on her. I feel sorry for her.
Congrats Na. Good win after a long break.

Na :woohoo: the smile at the end was so good to see, you could tell it ment so much to her.

Too many errors from both; but such hard hitting too.
Svetas serve abandoned her :tape:

So good to see Na fit healthy and playing good tennis again. Hope she stays injury free now; she could do very well this week with the crowd helping her as long as she cuts down on the errors and dosnt choke MPs like today.

Good match anyway :hug:

Li rises to the occasion, while Kuznetsova folds like a cheap tent. Seems just about right.

It was a huge baseline duel with the pace being nothing short of ferocious. Li is wild. It could be an outrageous winner or a big UE at any given moment from her. You just don't know. Her depth was stunning today as were practically all of her winners.

Sveta :smash: what the peep was that, out there? Up a break in both sets only to give it back.
She let Na Li back in the match and in the second set Li ran away with it.
Sveta has zero confidence in her game right now, so sad to see her loop many forehands, that´s so unlike her.
I hope she recovers from this slump because the level she´s playing at is so beneath her.
They were both making many errors but well done to Na Li who won the important points.
Somebody has to teach Li how to defend better though, her reply to aggressive balls is to hit it back even harder :tape:

Sveta needs a total shake-up - a new coach would be good, but a psychologist would be absolutely essential!

looks like we know who two the SF at the USO will be. Ivanovic and Kuznetsova.

Tough luck w/ the draw for Kuzzie but this should give her more time to rest for the USO which might be better in the long run.

Are the stats on NBC right?

Na Li: 18 winners, 54 UE
Sveta: 6 winners, 46 UE :spit:

Kuznetsova.. please just take the rest of the year off and see a psychologist or something.

Wow! NA!!!
:worship::worship::worship:

It's been quite some time since she has been able to show some great form. I hope she can go deep here and carry some good form into the USO. She could be top 10 soon if she could keep this up, she has so much talent. I just re-watched her match with Martina at last years AO, at times she is just dazzlingly good (not in the 3rd set obviously).

Oh Sveta, not a surprise but still, maybe she has to drop out of the top 10 to start winning some tournaments again. :lol:
Seriously though, she needs to take some pressure off herself, this has been a pretty poor season from her.
