Kvitova and Sharapova are coming out on court!

goldenlox
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:01 PM
Big match here. Is Kvitova mentally tough enough for this?
If she is, she has the game to win many of these.
This could be one of those matches, like 2003 FO final, that changes the sport

Spring Pools

Big match here. Is Kvitova mentally tough enough for this?
If she is, she has the game to win many of these.

I worry about her mental toughness because she has had two mini chokes, but she hasn't been to the finals of a major before, so she might have a bigger choke. Because she gave away a set to both Pironkova and Azarenka.

goldenlox
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:07 PM
She isnt Sharapova at 17. Shes been around, and her losses at the last 3 majors were not impressive.

But this kind of match is different. She might be special in this setting.

Or she might be like Stosur, lose the final and fall back.

Petra gets a love break. 1 game all.

Spring Pools

Petra gets the break! She's putting a lot of pressure on the Sharapova first serve which might get her some more doubles.

Masha saved one break point.

Sharapova's really camping out in the double's alley on the ad side to return Petras serve.

Please send Sharpie packing, Kvitova. :D

Spring Pools
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:20 PM
I think Petra's going to start getting a lot of aces on the Ad side if she can go flat down the T.

Spring Pools
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:20 PM
Why didn't she go to the backhand???

This is a good match so far. The real question is: Can Kvitova close out sets.
Definately not choking so far

hablo

Kvitova seems to hit the ball harder than Sharpie! :eek:

Spring Pools
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:26 PM
I like Petra's backhand slice. She needs to get some spanish bite on it though so it stays even lower.

Grass has skidding bounces. You have to accept there will be some unforced baseline errors.
The Williams sisters have the serve. Thats how Petra can win this. Big serves

This game is being played at a high level. Both are getting better

Spring Pools
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:37 PM
BTW, anyone notice that a lot of times when Petra gets a really easy short ball put away like the last point, she clubs it down the middle? It's a good idea, and she's been using it all tournament. I don't get why players don't just stay there and make her change her plan.

As Serena gets into her 30's, this is the player she's going to have to beat to win Wimbledons.

KKKKRRROT!

Predictably, Kvitova is in Uber ball basher mode, everything she clobbers goes right.
This match will not last long. 6-3 6-2 perhaps ?

If Kvitova doesn't choke, she'll get her first Wimby title. But I'm ready for her to choke away the second set...

Impressive set from Petra. Disgusting from Maria. She needs to pick it up fast.

She can let herself go 3-0 down, but that's it. Otherwise, I don't thing she can get the set back.

I'm not seeing why people are saying Maria is playing "disgusting" tennis. Indeed a little passive, but Petra is taking it to her.

She isn't playing her aggressive best, and I think that's a conscious decision to mitigate Petra's power. Kvitova however, is scrambling far better than Maria expected and the long rallies are just not going her way.

Plus, the five double faults are not helping any.

Spring Pools
Jul 2nd, 2011, 01:56 PM

I don't think it's that Sharapova is beating herself. She's being beaten. Kvitova's amazing shots are heavy, hard and deep and Sharapova isn't being given enough time to generate her shots.

Keep it up, Kvitova!!! Save tennis from this banshee!!!

Peter is doing everything right, exposing Sharapova and her limited game; hopefully no mental breakdown in 2nd set, something she is known for!

right now Maria should lose 6/0. and considering her level, that's the amount of games she deserves.

I honestly don't think that Maria's level of play is anything but just good, but she needs to take it up a notch or two to survive this match.

Petra has looked solid so far but can she close this in two sets?

I really want someone, anyone, from "Generation Suck" to win a slam.

I wanted to see how she handled pressure. I can see the depth pace & angles she hits.
If she doesnt choke, this is the next great Wimbledon multiple winner.

The only part where Sharpie is beating herself is on her serve. Those DFs... :help:
