I almost want Woz to make it to the quarters so Justine can beat her

Geez, somtimes I hate women's tennis.

Kirilenko was excellent in the first set, working the point really well, hitting to the open court when she had the chance, and doing some great work at the net. Wozniacki was helpless.

After that Kirilenko just imploded - there's not much else to say.

Kirilenko can only blame herself : she had this match under control and totally imploded.She regrouped in the 3rd (with the help of Caroline mini choke)only to fall apart once again.

Usual boring stuff from Wozniacki (and the fake medical time-out to disrupt Kirilenko was lame)but she was the more patient of the two and it paid off.

Don't know who is playing her next but I hope she'll get crushed.

The outcome was NEVER in doubt, even after the first set demolition as it was obvious Kirilenko woudn't be able to stay focused any longer. Still, it was her pathetic play on breakpoints (either comical returns hit into the bottom of the net or cowardish and mindless moonballing) that cost her the match.

Caro's miraculous recover from the death bed was NEVER in doubt too. But beware, Catniacki, since now on you have only 4 lives left.

Slutiana

Kiri needs to play all the time like she does against Pova.

Woz was the better pusher, though.
I don't blame them.


And no she doesn't, she was great in the first set simply because she came to the net on virtually everything. at like 1-1 in the second she was like 20/25 at the net. Then she just stopped and then bar the two serve and volleys in a row, she just came forward on desperate slly shots and DF'ed the match away on like every BP.

It's certainly an improvement for Kiri but it's just frustrating because she's such a better player than this girl and if she just has the confidence to come to the net and stick to that plan throughout a match, the score would be something like 6-1 6-1.

It's a shame Kirilenko can't be consistently aggressive with her forehand, such is her undulating technique. When she gets mid-court balls, she can take the ball early and generate competent racquet-head speed. It's when she gets in those deep CC forehand rallies, where she's forced to smother the ball with topspin. Has basically no penetration and hardly any control either. Fertile ground for Wozniacki to get into her laborious rythm.

Wozniacki hit a few 'crowd-pleasing' winners, but what a display of almost total passivity. You could see the look of genuine frustration on the face of Kirilenko as she had to cope with so many loopy, high balls, forcing her to take so many risks almost consecutively within games. Kirilenko's volleying was her saving grace from being totally drained into submision from the baseline.

Ths match was dooomed before it started. We saw a full house at the Nadal match vs Nalbandian, then when Caro hits the court with Kirilenko, the place is less than half filled,which tells me, people want to see some quality tennis,not bathing beauties.

Caroline was suppose to be sick, but from my vantage point, Kirilenko looked sick after the ist set until the ending. Kirilenko plays like a player with no strength.


The only thing worse than watching a Wozniacki vs Kirilenko match would be Wozniacki vs Wozniak.

If she had more belief in her volleys (which she should have, because they are effin' amazing), she would've won this match easily. In that second set she stopped coming to the net as much and where she came in on practically every opportunity in set 1, after the two serve and volleys she just stopped. So frustrating.

She got caught in Wozniacki's web at the baseline.

Kirilenko has nice volleys, but pure instincts in how to approach the forecourt. She often comes in off her forehand, which is neither deep or well-placed enough to allow her to control the net.

I think Caro is doing good things to the world in challenging the traditional notion of what makes a good player. She may never ever beat Serena, but she's ranked right up there with her. She's living proof a defensive baseliner can still reach no.2 in the world by stringing together enough match wins.

Kirilenko tried to break Caroline's fh at times, like Jelena did last week but she either collapsed mentally after few games and lost her strategy, or simply failed to execute it : Wozniacki neutralized her long enough to see the error coming.

To be fair to Wozniacki, it's not her fault a lot of players can't keep their nerves under control.Maria had her moments, even in the end, but the last break she gave with a DF was kinda a signature of the match.In all these close matches, Wozniacki is the one winning the big points.
That being said, I still think her game is barely watchable at times.

They are really pushing her in the frontscene to promote the tour cause she's supposed to be pretty, fresh and all but whith this kind of game, all they'll get is empty stands.

WRONG!
She is merely taking advantage of players who lack effective transition games, which is the majority of the women on tour.
Look at what happened the first set when Kiri decided to grow a pair and come to net and take balls out of the air: 6-1.

The only possible good thing about her winning right now is she might force other players to improve this aspect of their games, or just improve their tactics in general.

The day CWoz wins a slam is going to be a bad day for women's tennis (if her game stays as it is)

Usual boring stuff from Wozniacki (and the fake medical time-out to disrupt Kirilenko was lame)but she was the more patient of the two and it paid off.


Pretty good faking. After checking her pulse the medic actually advised her to stop playing.

From the way Caro was moving it's clear she wasn't feeling too good. All this talk about "deathbed reports" is silly. Caro had a normal case of fever but for elite players even being a little sick can mean the difference between winning and losing. Caro was probably working at 80% capacity. If Kirilenko had kept up her level from the first set she would have won big but she choked. This was as much Kirilenko losing as it was Caro winning, but kudos to Caro for never giving up even though she didn't have her usual strength.

This Kirilenko is one of the biggest headcases on the tour.

Last week, Jelena showed how to beat the Pusher. Hit deep to the forehand then finish off the short ball by either coming to the net while taking the ball up in the air or by hitting a winner to the open court.

While Kirilenko managed to do this in the first set, she changed the game in the second set. She traded backhand to backhand rallies with the Pusher and ran the Pusher into some sort of form. This was enough for the Pusher who herself was not even 100%.

Once Kirilenko doublefaulted twice in the second set to hand the break to the Pusher, I stopped watching the match. I am not surprised with the result.

Mar 29th, 2010, 07:05 AM
Very boring match. The first set, despite the score, took about an hour to complete. The only interesting thing was Kirilenko's willingness to come forward and cut the point short, but when she stopped doing that she was basically finished.

So I go and look for more information on this match and finds this:


It was sheer willpower which Monday sent Caroline Wozniacki through to the third round of the WTA tournament in Miami.

The victory over Maria Kirilenko was finally sealed despite the fact that the Dane was playing with solid fever in her body. And after the first set the tournament doctor advised Caroline to retire.

- The doctor came on court to take Caroline's pulse. She said it's so low that Caroline should not continue playing, Piotr Wozniacki says

Caroline Wozniacki, however, chose to disregard the doctor's advice and went back on court to win the second and third set.

- She has shown great heart, and that she is a real fighter, so I'm really proud of the way she reacts on the court today, Piotr Wozniacki says

After the win 1-6, 6-1, 6-4, the tennis ace rushed back to the hotel to get ready for her fourth round match against Russian Anastasia Pavlyuuchenkova

- Right now tennis has second priority. I'm her dad and I have to make sure my daughter gets healthy. I bought a lot of minerals and vitamins for her. She's not feeling too well so I can't say for sure she'll be ready to play tomorrow, finishes Piotr Wozniacki

The 'deathbed' comment was created by haterz and now re-used by haterz. No Caro fan would have said more than what it was. The flu, cold, sore throat. Simples. Nothing more or less than that. But to play another top player with such condition is near impossible.

Ths match was dooomed before it started. We saw a full house at the Nadal match vs Nalbandian, then when Caro hits the court with Kirilenko, the place is less than half filled,which tells me, people want to see some quality tennis,not bathing beauties.

I'd like the believe that the average tournament goer is as horrified by Sunshine's game as most of us here at TF are, and to put down the empty stands to our shared aversion of Sunshine's relentless pushing dazzling versatility, but people probably just went for a drink/snack and a stroll after the lengthy Rafa vs Fat Dave, which was the marquee match of the day. I suspect that just about any WTA match held at that time would have been very poorly attended.

Corswandt
Mar 29th, 2010, 12:49 PM
I saw the match, but forgot to post actual notes about it because I gave priority to h8tin'

Kirilenko was surprisingly consistent for long stretches of the match. She didn't even try to hit through Sunshine from the baseline, something she'd be unable to do anyway; instead she defended herself well, and managed to keep herself in lengthy neutral rallies by looping the ball into Sunshine's FH side before taking chances by hitting deep into the corners or making her way to the net to intercept Sunshine's floaters. She usually chose the moment to break the deadlock both carefully and correctly and constructed points very well (this was her main strength when she broke through in late 2005). Sunshine's passivity is such that her opponents are pretty much free to implement whatever game plan they choose. It was interesting to note that Kirilenko's approach shots were usually directed to Sunshine's BH side - Sunshine's FH is undoubtedly her weaker shot, but due to her agility she can often pull off FH passing shots by merely scooping up the ball over her opponent - which reveals that she had given this at least some thought. Sunshine's FH is quite harmless, but she managed to loop it up very deep for most the match; oddly, it was her BH that often lacked depth.

But Kirilenko's ground game just wasn't solid enough for her to be able to keep this level up for even another set. The 3rd set was the most interesting in that Kirilenko was so up and down - played some very good tennis, including first strike tennis (!) on occasion, only to immediately give away several points with odd mishits and then a couple of breaks (and ultimately the match) with DFs.

For those who are wondering, Kirilenko's FH wasn't always this loopy. It was much flatter before van Harpen made some changes to her game in his relatively successful bid to convert her into a clay MM specialist back in 2007-2008.

I suspect that just about any WTA match held at that time would have been very poorly attended.I susupect you're correct - if you attend any combined event or slam, there generally is more interest in men's matches.

I actually enjoyed the first set of this match. Excepting Martinez-Sanchez and maybe Henin, it's been quite a while since I've seen any women volley as well or as often as Kirilenko did then (maybe since the last decent match I saw Vinci play). Sets 2 and 3 were awful though - is it possible to choke after only one set? I just found it sad to see Kirilenko abandon the tactics that had worked for her, and just basically implode mentally.

Nothing wrong with calling it misspelling.

If I wrote "loose" when I meant "lose" would you call it a misspelling or "using the wrong word" ? Are both not applicable? The answer is yes.

That's completely different though. He used a completely different word and he was probably just thinking of the word "the" when he went to type "to". The point is, it doesn't make him stupid as the Wozniacki stan was trying to imply it did. And no it isn't a fail.

No, it isn't completely different. A misspelling is a misspelling. Whether it comes as a result of a brainfart, Freudian slip, sloppy fingers etc... it's still a misspelling. I'd say writing "the" when you mean "to", while rather innocent and harmless in itself, is worse than many misspellings which are merely sloppy-finger typos seeing as in the former case, the mistake comes directly from the brain.

I cannot believe how she kept playing last night... Caro :kiss:

Exactly. Unlike players who tank. Who pull out of tournament etc etc - she played. She was better than the day before but all she could do was try and hope to get through. It wasn't pretty but she got through which was all she could hope for and she never thought about pulling out or tanking.

After the 1st set - Maria just couldn't play any points when she got BP or she got a break back or anytime there was an opportunity to win. She played much better on game and break points against her than for her.

Deep down did Maria believe she could win? Caro believed she coud just get through and win despite not being 100% well.

Loved the point and winner by Caro to win the match. I don't think Maria could have won a MP unless it was gifted.

As for Caro driving people away from women's tennis - the biggest thing that time and time again people say they won't watch women's tennis ans is a joke is the shrieking. And fortunately Caro doesn't.
