Pretty nice to see a down to earth player looking at her coach eyes when talking to her. Fed up of all these players trying to be so cool making no eye-contact when they request their service on court :weirdo:

So you are using her to criticize other players?

That is one really ugly forehand.

Basically yes.

Except for her FH (It's kind of Kleybanova... but worse), I think she has a pretty nice game. She should do well on grass in the future if she avoids injury.

It's reminds me that of our glorious Amy Frazier :hearts:

Oh please, you're a Wickmayer fan.

I think their forehands are kinda similar :sobbing:

Oh please, you hate her. It's no worse than everyone else on tour who sounds like screeching seagulls.

Am I the only one not bothered by her forehand or not-even-that-bad-i-can-think-of-lots-worse grunt?

Most of the girls just grunt/screech rather than say WHOOPPIEEEEEEEEE though....

You can basically spell out any grunt.

And christ, it's just my opinion. Didn't think it'd get everyone's panties in a twist.

It's so random, she came out of nowhere. It would be great for her to keep this up and not be a one-tournament-wonder.

Riske played very very well considering that this is only her 2nd wta tournament. She is cute and her coach is, too.

Oudin was beating Dementieva, Sharapova, Petrova at the USO. Jankovic at Wimbledon.
This is at a mickey mouse with tons of rain delays during the week.

I would want to see more before I start expecting good results

Her coach is much cuter :lol: She is a babe.

Plays a fairly generic game as expected, but at least she's confident enough to play a formulaic game with no great expectations (unlike Cirstea, Oudin etc).

Kinda like the quirk in her forehand, and she does actually make good solid contact generally. Very unorthodox/clumsy follow-through though, where it appears that she's about to fall over, and has to contort her body over to her left to make room for the ball.

Impressed with her second serve though. Was hitting the service box deep and with plenty of margin.

joćo.

She is boring.... I also don't like her serve and forehand motion :D

I don't think Riske can pose much of a risk to anyone worthy with that wretched forehand.

Does it matter if I hate her or not? Her grunt is still HORRIBLE as you would say. You can't use that as a reason for disliking Riske and then go and support Wickmayer. :shrug:

She would be refreshing if she could acually play a good tennis.

lol true. Imagine a match between those two. :p

Two anti-tennis forehands going at it.
