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.

Enjoy!!

Falconi's not that bad. Sure, she needs a serve and maybe a little more aggression.

Also, Garbine staying tight to Sara.

Errani will get murdered at the YEC. If she wins a set it will be a miracle. Probably going to eat a bagel or two. I mean this is not even top 50 hardcourt tennis. It would be betetr for her to try and tank out of the top 10. :lol:

ESPN showing a clip about how close Serena and Sloane are. :inlove:

Sloane's smile is so contagious. She's also very articulate and mature for a 19 year old.

I already liked her, but she is charging quickly toward my #2 player. :)

Mugu is playing well at the moment. I've expected her hardcourt game to be much worse.


Her game is tailor made for hardcourts. She's only 18, and learning. The big problem is that, at least as of March of this year, she wasn't working with one single coach but rather a group. Whoever she used in Florida in March was great for her, as she looked like a totally different player than she was on clay/grass in Europe.

You can see some of the fire coming back today, but Errani is a tough opponent for a player like Garbine, who goes for broke. She will win plenty in her career, but it will take some time I think.

Agreed for a fat dwarf Falconi puts a lot of balls back into play, but she has no ability to end a rally with a winner/forced error. Itīs all on Puchkova, who has made around 10 DFs and I have no idea why.

Sloane has improved a lot in a year. She just needs to make sure she hits through her backhand a little bit more and she should be a regular in the top 20 for her career.

I do think Fran is developing a bit of a complex playing her as she seems a bit intimidated by Sloane's movement instead of trying to go toe to toe with her in that category and see if Sloane can hit winners past her. Wow Fransexa great forehand angle!

She yelled out in Italian in the 1st set, the umpire gave her a warning. Then after the game, goes up to him finger waving telling him" you have no experience, stupid, stupid."
2nd set, She thinks the umpire let Sloane take too long to challenge and told him so
