Bad luck Nikki. :sad:

She had game/break points in 6/8 games in the third set. Also had a set point at 5-3 in the first.

Congrats to Sveta though, she was just too consistent when it counted.

Nicole's stats look great though. 42 winners, 38 errors. Wow.

She outplayed Kuznetsova for the better part of the first two sets, and had a set point in the first but just got unlucky. Better luck next time, Nic!

Great job Sveta. :bounce:

Nicole. :sad: Nevermind, there'll be other times.

Jun 24th, 2005, 02:34 PM
Nicole's groundstrokes are impressive, but she still has work to do: backhand slice, moving to the net, drop shots, ... But she's got a lot of potential! :yeah:

Jun 24th, 2005, 02:37 PM
Great job Sveta! :cool:

Better luck next time Nicole.

let's see if Svetlana gives credit for another good match tho.

Jun 24th, 2005, 03:03 PM
LOL! BBC called Nicole "Sharapova MarkII". ;)

Jun 24th, 2005, 03:06 PM
Great Match Nicole, much better play on grass at Wimbledon than in the warmups and u continue to show ur amazing talent! Great try and I have a feeling u will be having a big hardcourt season on ur favorite surface!

Looks like Niocle's about ready for a big Slam breakthrough! :)

Jun 24th, 2005, 03:34 PM
Better luck next time Nicole.

Yeah :o Show some class this time pls Sveta.She hasn't lost to Nicole b4 so maybe she'll be a bit better about giving credit.

Jun 24th, 2005, 03:52 PM
Sveta has more match where she can mess around. Then she has to clean up her game, to go further.

Jun 24th, 2005, 04:07 PM
Nicole :crying2:

Good luck Svetlana throughout the tourney!

Jun 24th, 2005, 05:21 PM
Yep Nicole choked from inexperience. oh well. Go Ivanovic.

Jun 24th, 2005, 05:33 PM
A year from now, Nicole wins this match. She hasn't had a breakthrough GS yet but she's on a very Sharapova-like path. She could break out at the US Open with a nice draw.

Jun 24th, 2005, 06:07 PM
:sobbing: Nicole.

She's still pretty inconsistent. But she just turned 16. I'm not worried just yet. She's going to be much stronger than Ivanovic once she fixes her head and controls her emotion.
