Caroline played baad in that last set.

Vesnina wasn't hitting it that good either...so short even when she was trying to be aggressive.

Wow great week for my faves this week :rolleyes: It doesn't matter though since Caro is going off my fave list soon anyway. I find myself rooting against her all the time.

Well done LenaV

Wow, the 3rd set was as exciting as if it gone to breaker! :worship:
Top stuff from Lena! :yeah: She made some great shots (especially BH DTL worked well) in the 1st & the 3rd set. Caro rolled over her in the 2nd, but it's more like Lena gave up on this set when she went down a double break. 3rd set was so well contested. Lena had a BP to go *4-2 up but Caro saved it with a great netplay. At that point I thought Lena would lose it completely and she went 0-30 down in the next game. She held thanks to some spectacular volleys and broke in the next game. She had one of the luckiest netcorders ever on the BP though. :lol: Caro has had a similar one a few games before, but seriously such luck on a BP! :lol: She played very well to serve it out too. There was one more tight moment when at 30-30 Caro hit return into the top of the net, the ball bounced up and for a second (for Lena for an hour I bet! :lol:) the world stood still. The ball bounced on Caro's side of the court to give Lena 1st MP. Caro saved it with a great volley which touched the net again and dropped short. :lol: Lena hit an ace to gain 2nd MP (letting a huge CMON out of her :lol:) and converted it with an aggressive play. Lena was so good at the net, in the 3rd I don't think she missed a volley. Very well done! :yeah:
Too bad for Caro, but she got outplayed today. :hug:

Caro you really do not deserve to be in the top 10 :tape: You are just so :yawn: and passive out there on the court. Start hitting the ball please! I really want to like you but you just make it so hard :sad:

sammy01
Jan 8th, 2009, 07:47 AM
yay, i really don't want caro to be top 10. i don't dislike her she just isn't good enough to be top 10 right now, todays match showed that.

lena v played pretty well but as usual she was left to dominate by caro being so passive.

anne this is such a good chance to make a final!

Dexter
Jan 8th, 2009, 07:49 AM
anne this is such a good chance to make a final!I love Anne to death, but unless Lena's level drops I can't see her beating Lena. :(
I'm really excited for that match though and will be happy whoever wins.

I haven't seen Elena playing this week, but she really seems to be in a good form, especially comparing to a dissapointing end of 2008 season.

Keep going Elena ;)

Caroline will be fine and still will be in the Top 10 before clay season.

If Elena continues her form, she will make great strides in the rankings.

If Caro played like she did vs Craybas, I'm not surprised she lost today...

She said Elena did play better than her ranking, but i wonder if she underestimated the lower rankt players...

We'll see in Sydney. where there are only good players.

Good win Elena! Despite liking Caroline, I was hoping she'd lose to make Nicole's loss understandable. haah

Why do the players i support have such vicious haters! :rolleyes:

Tough luck, you still have a lot to prove to some here. But i totally believe in her. She needs her first serve to fully implement her game. She didn't have that for the 1st and last sets. When she served more first serves in her whole game clicked. Some really bad errors out there - uncharacteristical.

I didn't watch the whole match just bits from each set.

Slightly surprised but definitely pleased for Lena. She has in the past done reasonably well Down Under so maybe not such a surprise. However I hope Anne can beat her next round.
