Great, Shuai double faults to lose the match. He knew she had no chance the way she was playing, if you can call it that. That second serve on match point she just hit it as hard as she could and served it long to get the match over with. :lol:

Peng was never a threat in singles here...in doubles she could have a good run.

people need to stop expecting anything from Peng. Her game has no margin whatsoever and she just isn't that good. Not a good combination at all.

she WAS exceptional...but those days seem to be behind her...she just isn't able to dictate play like she used to.

Why do I feel like its gonna be a long, soul-destroying process supporting Shuai through her entire career? I kinda wanna just stop, but I just love her too much :hearts:

What was that? Horrible.

I wanted Peng to win this match but I am happy for Alize all the same. I agree with switz, there is no way she is going to have decent results until she stops going for broke on almost every single ball. She has nice timing, she should use it to her advantage and go for more angles instead of just raw power.

Seriously, what is up with Peng Shuai? Yesterday she played such an intelligent match against Carla Suarez Navarro. She knew Navarro likes pace, but isn't super tall, so she mixed in moonballs and deep drives and kept CSN off balance. It was a hard fought match because CSN gets to a lot of balls and has some power too. But Peng stayed composed and played the important points well and won in two sets.

Yet today against Cornet, she played liked she didn't care. She just mindlessly blasted everything as hard as she could. There was no fight, just stares into her group, and ended on a double fault with a second serve hit as hard she could.

I am a fan of hers, but with this disappointing performance, I'm not so sure anymore. I mean c'mon, this is the Olympics. 1.3 billion people are trying to cheer her on. We're not expecting her to win a gold medal, but we think we deserve her to show some effort in her matches. Look at Zheng Jie, who is playing her heart out in both singles and doubles. Peng, on the other hand, loses her singles, and then promptly loses her double with defending gold medalist Sun TianTian. Pathetic! I wish Li Na had partnered TianTian instead.

Seriously, although Li Na can sometimes be a mindless basher too, but at least she gets mad and shows she cares. Li Na might hate the CTA as much as anyone, but on court, she leaves that behind. She gets mad at herself because she wants to win, and cares about her performance even if she doesn't do well.

God, Peng just me make so :fiery: Peng :smash: and makes me wanna :banghead: Seriously, GROW UP!

Rant over :tape:

I totally get what you are saying, its something that has bugged me for a while. Watch her performance against Szavay in Beijing last year, its on youtube. Towards the end of the match Shuai is losing and she is just a giant soulless void.

It doesnt look like she even cares, and her gameplan just turns into a giant mess of hitting as hard as she can off the forehand combined with giant loopy moonball backhands :weirdo:

I used to think her attitude was cool and I liked her nonchalent nature but it's not quite as endearing these days.

Maybe she doesnt care, and thats the problem - I dont know :shrug:
