This match was pretty much on Sprem's racquet, Shahar didnt have to really do much to get this win. When Sprem hit a good shot, it was really good. But she hit more bad shots and when they were bad, they were really bad. :tape: Anywho, congrats to Shahar for making another QF this season. :worship:

Keep it up in the QF against Franny or Lucifer. Kadima Shahar!! :worship:

The match wasn't even over when you posted this :tape:

God, it's so frustrating to follow Karolina sometimes :o It's obvious she was the more talented player in this match, but she would go for a way too risky shot at crucial moments and Peer didn't even have to fight that much for it.

I really thought she could win :(

Karolina played really good, especially in 1st set...but she lost :sad:

Anyway, congrats Shahar! :)

I really think that for Karolina it was crucial to break at 1/1 in first set, she would then feel more confortable out there as front runner!
She lacks confidance and doubting herself with such gamestyle is suicide.
This was a chance, hopefully she gets more this year and doesn't fade away!

Congrats to Shahar, she is mentaly tough. :yeah:

Too bad Klina can make so many beautiful winners, but she can't cut down her UE :sobbing:

i hate watching sprem matches, there is absolutely no consistency in the match and it is a borefest of 3 or 4 shot rallies. any player who can run and can successfully keep the ball deep will beat her as she will spray enough stupid errors to lose. the sort of player i could never be a fan of.

peer did ok, her coach was right, you don't have to play great to beat sprem just solid and consistent.

Ok, you said it already enough times, we all get it that you hate watching Sprem, seriously you say it every time you post in her result thread! :lol:
She didn't always play like this with sence of inevitable loss.

Sprem at her peak played some of the most riveting tennis I've ever seen, and that's no exaggeration. For that, I honestly couldn't care less whether she played a million duff matches.

You can say that if it makes you feel better about her loss. :tape:

I would agree with this. I am not a fan of ball bashers and Sprem wasn't all ball bashing when she first came up.

Good try Karolina, solid enough result here, keep on moving back up. :D

I'm going to do two things here: first, correct some of the misconceptions about Peer, and second, address why I like Sprem. Here goes.

This match was pretty much on Sprem's racquet, Shahar didnt have to really do much to get this win.

Sprem's racquet and Peer's legs. Part of Peer's success against inconsistent big-hitting players is the fact that ANYONE feels like they have to go for a little more against someone that fast. When Peer is playing with confidence (as she has for the past six months or so), she's a tough ask if you aren't in very good form.

It's obvious she was the more talented player in this match, but she would go for a way too risky shot at crucial moments and Peer didn't even have to fight that much for it.

I didn't realize quickness, entering with a gameplan, and the sense not to "go for a way too risky shot at crucial moments" didn't constitute talent. I also didn't realize winning a match comfortably (that's what you mean by "Peer didn't even have to fight that much for it", no?) wasn't evidence of superior talent.

Sprem at her peak played some of the most riveting tennis I've ever seen, and that's no exaggeration. For that, I honestly couldn't care less whether she played a million duff matches.

Right on. Sprem back in that terrific '04 stretch of form was such a riveting (that's the only word for it, really) player to watch, and she looked like she had fun playing, too. I suppose that's why everyone thinks she's so frustrating; how can someone capable of such stunning tennis and such tremendous game play so many duds? She caught lightning in a bottle for a few months, and even though it didn't take her as far as some players took their streaks, it sure was great to watch.

I remember Sprem was a kick ass player back in 2004.
Pity when a really talented player rises to prominence but just as quickly fades back into obscurity. Hope she can turn thinds around.
Think Peer will win next round against Lucie. Potential SF vs Flavia would be a great match with lots of long rallies.

:bigcry: Inevitable. This matchup sucks for Sprem. She served well in the first set and played patches of solid tennis, so this shouldn't be too discouraging for her. She qualified and got an MD win in a Premier event. :)

Kadima Shahar.
