Peer played so well to get a 6-3, 4-2 with break point for 5-2 and then she went off the rocker, really gave that to Pennetta.

I was reminded of that match as well:lol:


This was big. Flavia disappointed me so much, on so many levels, initially. Then she started fighting as always, and somewhere in the fight, she found her game. Played much better in the 3rd set :)

Congrats Flavia, well done:cheer::D

I was impressed with Flavia's play, incredible comeback by her. I was never really a fan of her, but after this match she can add me to her list of fans. I really enjoyed this match, probably my favorite I've seen this year so far. Go Flavia!

Shahar was very good except the last stages of the 2nd set and the 3rd set and that where she lost the match. Flavia started to play very good in the moment when she was thinking that the match is gone, in 2-4 30-40, from then on she was very good....

Why? She was horrible. Fistpumping every Pennetta UE. :lol:

One thing that annoyed me about Flavia was that everytime Peer hit a cross-court angled backhand to Flavia's BH, Flavia would try to hit a flashy DTL winner from out of the court. :o Going back crosscourt, the more % shot would've saved her perhaps losing more points in the match.

Some really great shots by both. This was high calibre. Anyone who says it was ugly, didnt watch full match.

When "Fiery Fred" says brilliant tennis from both "girls", you know its at least a decent match

Why is it so bad if Shahar makes it to the top10?? why is everyone so negative??

I thought it was a good match by Shahar till the middle of the second set. Penneta sucked till about the same time...

Jan 22nd, 2011, 08:45 AM
Both sucked big time, but Shahar decided to suck just a bit more at 4-2 until the end of the match.

Vintage Sucketta for the first 1/2 of the match -- hideous volleys, forehands dumped into the net, getting outhit by Peer. :tape:

Flavia benefited from the fact that Peer has no weapons and tightens up when she has to close out a match.

This wasn't pretty.

I knew Shahar was going to choke :fiery:

While last year she defeated Flavia twice,in IW(64 67 61) she served for the match twice I think in the 2nd and in NY led 64 40 before Flavia came back and tied to 4all

bye bye top-10 now :(

Jan 22nd, 2011, 03:31 PM

i'm so proud of Flavia for today's match, because i really expected her to lose and i was sure she would have melted on 4-2 2nd set...but she started fighting and somewhere in between she found her game and it was outstanding!
it was more than a year she wasn't winning a match from one set down and she did it rising her game against a great player like Shahr (even though her fist pumping every UE from flavia was so annoying :o). i don't know what she can do against Kvitova as i haven't seen this girl for a long time, but if she can start from the same place where she left this match it's gonna be really close!

Mixal
Jan 22nd, 2011, 05:57 PM
Fuck yeah! :rocker2:

I caught the 3rd set and I was so sure Flavia was going to lose being down + that little injury she had for a few points. I don't expect much in the next round, everything else is a bonus.

As for Shahar, she's okay, solid top 20 player IMO.

I don't get it. Most of the posters here are just plain stupid.

If Shahar gets to the top 10, it's a shame? it's bad for tennis? you guys serious???

People just like to copmplain and b!tch. Caroline doesn't deserve to be number 1, Vera doesn't deserve number 2, Shahar doesn't deserve number 10... Please... Grow up and stop being such asses. If she makes it to the top 10 officially, it's because she was good enough and solid enough to get there.

Get over it.

i really dislike Shahar but she's right, this free hating on Peer just because she was enough consisten (something that lack all the most famous players on wta -Masha,Ana,JJ,Serena..-) to get to the top 10 is so childish and stupid

You're so optimistic :tape:
I think people don't want Peer in Top 10 because of her behaviour: she screams for the happyness even if her opponents make some errors, and she always wants to control personally every ball out. Just pathetic.

This is GM for you. Lots of poeple here probably seriously think that Shahaar is a pusher who is bad for tennis (similar to Wozniacki). They don't know anything about tennis so just ignore them ;)
