Great job Nadia.. service games not very convincing as should be

But great that she is winning some matches having a New Haven final to defend :yeah: :D


I was kinda disgusted by the crowd though... Nadia points and winners were barely applauded. Her errors got more cheers.

Really a terrible crowd.

^^ This, all the way.

Instead of hideous vomit-inducing Wozniacki/Ivanovic R3 we have glorious exciting McHale/Petrova.

Tennis is saved! :worship:

Nadia just won Washington, she's playing a little better. Has a steady player next, Mchale.
Should beat her, but you never know what's on Nadia's mind.

When is Ana going to finally get the memo that she needs to fix her serve? She really can't be that stubborn, can she? :unsure:

Well done Nadia! I was rooting for her as it seemed nobody who was actually there, was. She's still really good when she wants to be!

There were some good points in this match. I was impressed by some of Nadia's rallying. She worked over Ana's groundies on both sides.

When she is on, Petrova's striking game is just a joy to watch. So refreshing to see someone hitting the ball with power, going for the kill, instead of pushing and moonballing their opponents to death...

I hope that Nadia can finish in the top 20 this year again because, when she's on, she is definitely top 10. (Unfortunately she's almost never on...)

Really a terrible crowd.

Happens in just about all of the Ana's matches. Her and Kim Clijsters.

Aug 17th, 2011, 08:57 PM
I favored Nadia to win this match from the beginning but also thought that Ana could make an upset.

Ana was not very smart in this match, there were some points that showed her intelligence on court, particularly on the first 3 games of the second set, although her emotion gets the better of her and she deserved to lose.

I hope she could control more on her emotion, I think she involves her emotion with the crowd too much and not use it to focus on tennis as much as she should. Maybe she won't lose this habit, but I think she knew this and wants to control it, but so far, not good enough.

Anyway, I have to say Nadia is so underrated and this win is not a surprise, I did not see Mchale played today but I think Nadia will still win.

Seriously, it got to a stage I don´t even bother this stupid losses, and don´t waste my time watching on the stream this errorfest

This girl is the Azarenka type, very good against outside top 100 just to fold against any decent top 40 player

Vikapower
Aug 17th, 2011, 08:59 PM
:yawn: Same old story with Ana... she's really a desperate case and I doubt she'll ever be back, just so it goes -- 11 DFs and multiple UEs, as soon as she faces someone half decent she's toast, it happened with Petrova lol.

she plays consistently.

BluSthil
Aug 17th, 2011, 09:34 PM
Along with Wozniacki, Ana better have a reality check. Ivanovic better decide on whether she wants to be a runway model or top ranked tennis player. Consistency is the name of the game; and right now, it's sorely lacking...

Aug 17th, 2011, 09:41 PM
Bloody Eurosport were showing the match then said to switch to Eurosport 2 for the rest of the match so they could show Golf!!! I only have Eurosport International so couldn't watch the rest of the match :(

Anyway good win Nadia. From what I saw, Ivanovic is still playing the same nonsense, rushing all the time and can't control herself or her emotions.

And by the way, every time Ana won a point, she was overacting, and so were her silly fans....

ES is currently replaying this. And I hadn't noticed how desperate Ivanovic and those Serbiatards in the crowds are. Nadia played heaps better and barely got any applause while Ivanovic kept celebrating every error with her AJDE whails. :lol: I didn't realise how pathetic she was up until now.
