Maria :help: You could've actually won this.
At least she's obviously improving imo. QF is already good I guess.

Wozniacki :rolleyes:

Maria played a lot better than their meeting at Wimbledon, but her game still lacks the power to trouble any of the top players. Everytime she was given half a chance she'd just choke it away with some poor unforced errors, like serving for the set in the 2nd set at 5-4 i just knew she wouldn't be able to hold. Against Wozniacki you need to be take the game to her and be aggressive but Maria's lack of power causes her to be unable to open up the court most of the time against a decent defender.

WD to Caro for making the semis but she played even worse than last time. Good effort by Kirilenko though , definetely pushed her.

Good fight, but she choked big time when serving for 2nd set at 5-3 :sad:

Good to see Maria playing better, but she really should have brought that match to a 3rd set.

Maria :sad: if only she weren't such a mental midget. She did well. Could have easily won the first set and then of course the 2nd set too.

Well done Caroline.

Maria was the better player in the 2nd set before that inexplicable choke serving at 5-3. Two easy shots into the net and a d/f saw her broken to 15. If she can't take those sorts of chances against a top player, there's no much she can do.

Maria could have won this in straights but whatever. :p Played some nice points and some careless ones at times.

Nice job, Caro. :p

:lol: Maria's such a choke queen. She was up 4-2 in the first set with two game points to go up 5-2. Pathetic. :help: That wasn't the only choke during the match either.

Does anyone know why Maria started arguing with the Umpire at 5-4? I don't remember her doing that before.

Masha could have won it and played a really good tennis, but missed too many easy shots:o anw finally she's on the way up again, so i hope to see her in a good shape for the USO

Kirilenko had a lot of chances, she was playing well and was hitting the line a lot of the match.
Caroline was on the other hand was not playing well, she just got the right points at the right time.

They argue about if Caro did serve first or second serve, the umpire said a ballkid moved so it was first serve again...


Well done Caro! :)

btw, IF Masha had hit fewer CC ues she may have won... that df in TB was :o


But i don't think Caro was near lossing the match, even she did not play well...

Fuck off tennis. :o Should've been 6-4 6-3. Epic, epic choke. On the SP in set one, missed a BACKHAND return off a 20mph second serve, when she served for it she hit 2 terrible UEs and 2 DFs. Horrifying, she was easily the better player, and rightly so :help: wtf.

Kirilenko is so boring,watching her play is like watching paint dry no personality.She is a pretty girl thats where it starts and ends,she is not an athelete she should have pursued modelling full time she would have looked happy.At least we will get to see Stella s designs now she has Wozniacki as her muse.

It's good to see Maria getting some form back. In fact, I felt she was hitting even better than she was when she beat Chakvetadze at AO last year. She was beautiful to watch when she's on, hitting gorgeous shots and angles but a total disaster when it comes to UEs. She had so many chances to put away balls at the net & hit it right back at Wozniacki.
