Poor day at the office for both girls.
Glad to see Petkovic come away with the win, ugly or not.

Up 4-1 in the tiebreak and she let the match slip away. 80 UE's sounds about right.

I call bs on the stat.They were propably bored of making the distinction and counted every error as an unforced one.

Thread title should be "Gajdosova defeats Gajdosova 5-7 7-6 (5) 6-2"

Like I said in the OOP/Scores thread... You follow Jarka for the :lol:. She's truly an awful player.

Petko... Can't believe she schooled Petra last week. Hopefully the Wimby champ will get her revenge this time (they're due to meet in R3).

At least Petko managed to play less badly in the end. Which was still awful :lol:

Dear god.

I wasn't even convinced at one point that Andrea really wanted to win - she looked so tired. But apparently Jarka was having none of it.

What a match.
It was like 8 hours long and full of up-and-downs.

It was all about Gajdosova.

Out of nowhere she showed up some form,
played fantastic from 0-3 to 7-5 in the first set.

In the second and third set she made tons of errors.

She played a winner - mistake - winner - mistake.
And as long the winners and the errors were about the same amount the match was tight.

But in the third set she made more errors than winners and so she had not a chance.

Petkovic was very passive, not at her best and not in the best form.
In the third set, she just put the ball in play and it was enough.

Pektovic lead 3-0 in the 1st.
Then Gajd. won it 7-5.
Gajd. lead 7-5 2-0.
Then Petko was up 4-2 in the 2nd.
Then Gajd. made it 4-4.
Pekto had 5 set points at 6-5 in the 2nd.
In the tiebreak Gajd. lead 4-1.
Petko won it 7-5.
In the third, Gajd. was up 2-1.

So many wonderful winners and aces,
so many double faults and errors.

It was enormously risky play from Groth, but she showed her huge potential although she was hitting error after error.

Her groundstrokes are so clean and nice.

Her last results were bad, but she will be VERY dangerous in the next weeks and at the US Open.

I can see an UPSET in the 3rd ROUND of the US OPEN against Wozniacki or Zvonareva...

What an ugly match, major choke from both players at the end of the second set.

It seems that the only possible options for Gajdosova are hitting an ace or dfs.... what a mess.

At least Petkovic somehow prevented the complete German meltdown today...

No way Caro or Vera would lose to Groth, theyre just too consistent for her...

People were expecting her to trash Caro in Wimbledon, and look what happened.

I've never seen her playing agressively towards her opponent. History repeats itself like last week in Toronto when Petra Kvitova gifted her the match. Her # of winners was even less than today. :fiery:

Reverse Agassi. He got with Brooke Shelds and his game fell apart. Jarka split with Sam and has been painfully inconsistent.

Unexpected result.
Jarmugla Groth is a joke of a player, a clown but Andrea Petkovic is even worse with her ugly game and technique.
I hope someone will take out the weaponless mug the next round to save tennis from a new low.

Wow!

It seems like all the Germans were involved in terrible matches today. At least Petkovic survived hers (which isn't saying much). Where is Aymilover when you need them?

Why is he/she, on the 'Who Hates Petko' Thread (Who care), writing numerous responses to haters, and not over here telling us how/why Petko hits so many winners (19W, 38 UE in this game), and plays a clean, aggressive Petra/Maria type game normally?

I just find that interesting. OK.

Wow, judging by the stats, it must have been horrible.

The ES commentators made it fun. They were laughing after every Jarka error/DF in the third set. And they kept criticizing Petkovic for not playing like a Top 10 player. The players themselves provided some colorful commentary.

But yes, the play was bad. Jarka's solution was to bash every ball, including second serves, and Petko's solution was to push every ball, including first serves. :lol:

Petkovic quote on the match:


I feel terrible, she said. I feel awful, really, because (Gajdosova) was playing incredible. She was just hitting winners all over. I dont know how long we played, and I felt like I was in the defense all the time. Thats not a good feeling, especially for a player like me who likes to be the dominant one, so I just felt terrible all the time. I dont know how I pulled it out, but Im thrilled that I did.

So 79 unforced errors is incredible play? :p :rolleyes:

Doully
Aug 16th, 2011, 11:11 AM
Humble in an ugly win at least.
Gajdosova still hit almost 50 winners despite the awful number of UEs. Significantly more winners than Andrea - who as she stated - is usually quite aggresive from the baseline.
All tennis players have to know how to win ugly.

That is just how the brain works. At least mine. During a game I dont care or know that the success rate on a certain shot of my opponent is only 10%. My brain only knows 100%, and when somebody hits a ridiculous shot, Im mad and will remember it.

fugliest match of the year?

Definitly no!

Too many errors - yes but at least these two are athletic players that have got all shots (theoretical) ;)



Jarmilla served for the first set at 6:5 and won her service game to love with 3 aces in a row and another service winner!

You don't see that very often.

The last time I saw a player serving 3 aces in a row was Chanda Rubin. Must be a decade ago :lol:
