Monica's returning has been brilliant throughout this match. She has broken 3 times now and had bps in two other games. And this is against one of the top 2 or 3 best servers in the game. Monica is taking the ball so early though and it is troubling Sam.

Lol pretty accurate -- anyways Wickmayer trying to over-bash way too much and Victoria just helping her very well here and there.

It's really amusing to watch some of these girls persist in trying to hit the cover off each and every shots and miss by extraordinary margins. Certainly Wickmayer should realize what she does is wrong and move away from her original game plan. :lol:

I donīt see it like that at all. I think she tried to rally and construct early, but shockingly Vika overpowered her and bossed her around, so she switched up to even higher risk shots and just misses them. Basically Wickmayer is playing a much better version of herself in terms of shotmaking and movement. It fits the conversation Barthel had with her mother:

Barthel: Will she stop playing so well?
Mother: I donīt know.
Barthel: So what should I do?
Mother: I donīt know.

Obviously, Victoria game is for many of these errors, Victoria does make it difficult for Wickmayer to see the openings, puts direct pressure and feels the needs to over-bash.

Victoria was always going to play faster than Wickmayer and consistently :lol: she knew what she was coming into -- these girls certain of them try to play shot-making style but they're just extremely bad at doing so for most. :lol:

C'mon Aga - give a beatdown and save your energy for tomorrow. Although I do like McHale.

McHaleīs point finishing skills are really awful. I cat believe she managed to end Wozniacki once given how awful she plays against Radwanska and JJ.

McHale has some impressive weapons, but she seems ignorant of how to use them properly.

Radwanska is playing a lot better than she was early in the match.

Does she need to play well? :shrug:

Not really. Plus, Radwanska feeds off the opponent's pace, so if someone gives her puff shots like McHale she doesn't appear as efficient in her counterpunching.

I feel like I have to defend sam here. So:
1)she has an amazing forehand
2)she has an amazing serve
3)she has much better than average fitness
4)she can volley
5)she was the massive underdog, meaning she played better


There. That is how she snatched slam.
