over 2 hours and filled with chokes from both :help:

lucky for Na Beth just handed the match to her in the last game :tape:

now Na's record on the 4 Premier Mandatorys are 2 SF and 2 losses in her 1st match played :hysteric:

Beth :hug: you will soon be American #1 :spit:

Damn Beth! She really lost her focus in that last run of games. Up until that point she was the most focused i have ever seen!! Ah well congrats Na. Beth put up a very good fight today.

Beth was so pathetic in last games.

Well, Na Li still isn´t in a particularly good form. But as the commentator said, she got away with it in the end.

I can understand throwing away a game when you are down 2-5 or 3-5, but throwing the last game away when it is ON SERVE? :smash: Bethanie

Nice to see Na hitting well again. Still lots of errors, but she can actually raise her level at the crucial stages again instead of getting stuck in ErrorNa mode.

BMS threw away the last game, but it's been a great week for her. Should reach a career high ranking now, and will be a tough draw for someone at RG.

Messy match, but I don't know if anyone expected otherwise.

Brena
May 6th, 2011, 04:27 PM
oh my, what a choke in the third by the Queen. :bigcry: She was obviously too overwhelmed by the possibility of reaching the SF. :awww::hug: But still, a great tournament, let's repeat this, Bethanie! :rocker2:
Now win the title somehow, Na!

Queen B's confidence left her and she folded in those last three games after being 4-3 and serving. Sad. :sad:

Sasja

Beth :sad: :hug:

Na broke back and Beth didn't make a single point after that :tape:
Good week for her though :yeah:

SF for Na :)

Na is still in her post AO vacation form...Beth choked as the match went to the finishing line as expected

4-3 3rd set, Na looked so much a goner.

Also, I wasn't particularly for or against either, but it's good to see the woman who was ~3 games away from being our this year's AO CHAMPION finally making a decent result at a somewhat big event.

yes Beth played a horrible last game serving at 4-5 ... went down 0-40 and then on the first MP just serve and volley on a terrible serve :spit: which had no chance of success ... seems like she just wanted the match to be over :hug:

Ajde SuperNa, even though Na is not in the good form, she can close the match so effiently, just well done

Noctis

If Beth done more serve and volley,this match might have been over quickly :oh:

for all beth's outlandish clothes, cocky attitude and bravado, she shits herself whenever a big win is on the cards lol.

guess that explains like 1 top 10 win and zero titles.

skank sands doth protest too much with her clothes and other shizz

She has 2 top wins, it should be easy for you to remember since it's the same amount of STD's you have

Why so many errors from these two? A lot of winners, but still. :no: Waste of opportunities, Bethanie.

Too bad there isn't a tattoo parlour at the tennis court. Mattek would dominate the Tour. :hysteric: What an epic fail there at the end. Twice up a break against ERRORNA and couldn't capitilize. There's a reason she's 0-3 in Finals. Someone should spend all the time she takes on interesting wardrobe choice, tacky tattoos, and the desire to look like a football player into a good sports psychologist. It could work wonders for her.

I'm not sure if I'm alone on this, but I don't mind the football socks :shrug: I actually enjoy watching her game to be honest.
