Understandable, though. Kiri hasn't played in like a month.
Petra too good.

She served, returned & hit right through the home-cooked courts. Volleyed nicely to.

Very few unforced errors, as well.

You can tell she was focused playing for her country/team.

Just your average, efficient, clinic style beatdown!

Wow!:eek: Petra was absolutely unplayable! That was as good as any performance she put in during Wimbledon. Kirilenko, bless her, gave it everything she had but there was nothing she could do.

That will have scared the willies out of the Russians and it gives Safarova the freedom to play aggressively in her matches.

There is no such thing as a Petra-proof indoor court. Essentially she plays as well on a slow indoor court as she does on a fast indoor court. The velocity Petra gets on her strokes means she can hit winners whatever the pace of the court. And a slower court allows her more time to set up for those powerful shots too. I believe Petra's success indoors has more to do with the lack of elements like wind and sun than it does with the speed of the court TBH. That and the fact that Petra simply feels confident when she plays indoors.

Anyway this was a very impressive display with some great serving.

US Outdoor hardcourts. Petra doesn't like those. Petra would never lose to Kirilenko indoors though. Oh and Kirilenko's other defeat of Petra was on grass before Petra discovered that actually she likes playing on grass as well last year.

Yeah. Sveta looking good so far against Safarova.

Is Safie playing poorly, or an inspired (& totally, impossibly unpredictable Sveta playing well?

Could be real interesting match indeed tomorrow.

It may ccome down to the doubles duo & Petra. Hope Safie an beat Kirilenko tomorrow, as well.

Lucy is getting thrashed!!

Nov 5th, 2011, 01:50 PM
Doesn't mean much. Kirilenko was called the last minute, so it's expected for her not to be at full in the 1st match. The match against Safarova, that's what matter.

aloeball
Nov 5th, 2011, 02:27 PM
I was thinking that the Russian captain was insane, saying this court was best against the Czech. Then Kvitova comes along and beats the living daylights outta Kirilenko.

But then watching Safarova's match... I totally get why he chose this slow indoor hardcourt. It was pretty slow, enough to affect Safarova's power but definitely not enough to slow down Kvitovas.

<3 Petra and David

Impressive beatdown. It was funny to see how Kirilenko preferred doublefaulting to facing a blasting return winner on the second serve:lol:

What was the alternative? Playing Chunkova who has won only like 3 matches indoors in her career and can't serve?

Though I will say that making the surface indoors was the biggest flop.

This court actually looks like just thing Tarpischev was should have had in mind when he talked about finding a Petra-proof court. If that snow didn't slow down the Petra groundies nothing would.

I like Kirlilenko's fight but whenever she a faces a talented big hitter on their game she's just helpless.

Excelscior
Nov 5th, 2011, 05:16 PM
@Starin. Mmmhhh.

From the Associated Press:

Kirilenko, whose Fed Cup experience was limited to two matches five years ago, was a surprise choice as Russia’s No. 2 for opening singles.

“In the beginning I felt I could overcome her powerful play from the base line,” Kirilenko said. “But midway through the first set, Petra added power to her serve, making it tough to return. And I had no chance receiving today, either.”

So she's basically saying in a round about way, "I couldn't ROS or hit with her. It was too overwhelming?"

Okay.

It should, cause her other Fed Cup wins are on her WTA Website Activity listing, where they end with your overall record at the bottom (currently listed as 58-13, which doesn't include today's win).

I guess we'll find out for certain on Monday, when they update?

Good. She's only 0.2% behind Wozniacki and I wonder if she can overtake her :scratch:.

Behind Wozniacki? She's ahead of her in W-L percentage.

But if you meant ranking points, no, Kvitova will not get any for Fed Cup wins, more's the pity. That's a done deal, and Caroline Wozniacki is the Year End #1.

I like Kirlilenko's fight but whenever she a faces a talented big hitter on their game she's just helpless.Makiri just beat Sam Stosur twice after Stosur won the U.S. Open.Sure Stosur wasn't at her best and that's a big reason why Makiri won those 2 recent matches. Kirilenko can play with the big girls if they aren;t in top form. And Masha has beaten Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuzetsova in grand slams before and to say those two players are alot bigger and stronger than Makiri is in an uderstatement. Sure Stosur wasn't at her best and that's a big reason why Makiri won those 2 recent matches. There is no doubt if the big girls who can move okay are on their game they will over power Maria like Petra Kvitova did to Makiri today. Size matters in women's tennis. And Makiri's 5'8" 125 pound frame isn't scaring anyone. ;) But if the bigger elite players are off thier games Maria can play with them and beat them on occasion.
