This thread will be opened on a trial basis; if all goes well we may allow it to stay.

It is to be used for live commentary for matches, be very clear this is not a live scoring thread.

This will be used as the official thread, new threads are not to be created for each match, this will result in the closure of this thread.

Anyhow back to the matters at hand. This business about a rivalry between Vika and Petra needing to happen is in the hands of Vika and Petra.

They have to win enough to meet each other.

It reminds me of the complaining years ago about all Williams finals. The way to prevent an all Williams final in those days was for somebody to beat one or both before the final. That didn't happen enough.

Folks had to wait until Venus and Serena are north of 30 to celebrate what they could not when they were in their prime. ;)

I don't understand why the crowd in Miami seem so against Azarenka really. There treatment of her vs Cibulkova was poor. Here you have a proper leading #1 (something almost everyone has been calling for ages). Putting on the biggest story of the year (with her win streak), and people were still cheering Cibulkova to win at 6-2, 5*-2, and muted applause everytime Vika won a point. I know a lot of people don't like her shrieking (it personally doesn't bother me), but you could at least appreciate what she is doing right now.

:facepalm: Seriously dude, Serena ? 80% of Serena's game is based on her serving skills you really want to use that example ? As soon as Serena's serve doesn't work she's in difficulty, we saw that in the US Open F, in Melbourne against Makarova, hardly a surprise though.

Your statement only works for girls who base a lot of their game on that specific department, like Görges, Sharapova, Serena etc.

Wozniacki had a good serving night but that is what composed all the match right ? :lol: More than half of her game is based on exchanges, defense etc.

Wozniacki take off her serve she still has great defensive skills, footwork, movement -- serve hardly means a sh-t for her. :help:

Now see what Azarenka will react to this.

Azarenka needs to put more cc angles into these rallies even at the risk of Bartoli using the created angles ot smack winners. Bartoli is just not missing anything within a comfortable striking zone, no matter how much depth Azarenka puts on it.

Azarenka is still going into desperation mode occasionally. Itīs not all that changed mentally. Just like it wasnīt all that mentally, when Zvonareva made two Slam finals. The major difference was that they won more. Azarenka has more game than Zvonareva and therefore she managed to finish the job at a Slam.

Still a great match.

It's a question of mentality, Victoria is unbeaten, these girls come with really NOTHING to lose -- that's what allows these kinds of surreal performances.

dsanders06

those stat must be some BS. Looked much better.

The stats are skewed because te courts are so damn slow here. Lots of shots which would be clean winners on other surfaces, players manage to just about get a racquet on so they go down as 'forced errors' rather than winners. It was the same for Li-Sharapova - that match was bad, but not quite as bad as the stats made out :lol:

Patrick345

Marion at her best is really a great returner at least top 10 -- she's underrated in that department I feel.

At her best Bartoli probably possesses all these aspects of the game ROS, FH, BH and serve pretty comfortably I'd say.
