This girl Cohen has got game!!

Serena isnt swinging that freely yet, she is a bit tense, she's starting to loosen up tho but this cohen girl has no fear.

Her game reminds me so much of Justines....but with some Maurasemo mixed in (got more spin on her backhand then justin)

and i was suppose to go to this match tonite :mad: :mad: but couldnt get out of work earlier.

i saw her practice once. i thought she was very talented, hitting all sorts of nice shots off the backhand side.

perhaps not the best mover, and maybe lacks confidence and killer instinct?

Serena has had a tendency to make opponents look spectacular this year.

Then they play another top tier player and they get thrashed off the court.

She's been known to give people a name. Even if it is for a quick minute.

:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

watching her movement, even her grunts, and the finish to her service motion is a bit like watching justine!!!


serena is up 5-3 btw in the second!!!

this girl is good tho, she does have some instinct she is not scared of serenas pace at all....

Love the backhand. Too bad about the first serve. She looks to be really talented, but oftentimes we never hear about players like that after a good match. It's too bad if this happens here.

Serena makes these people have 'game'.

A healthy and fit Serena would have thrased Haynes, Santagelo, Craybas, Cohen-Aloro, etc.

Cheers to the old Serena coming back soon...:worship:

Um, it's not all about Serena, you know. Haynes, Santangelo and Cohen-Aloro are talented! They were playing very well and were taking it to Serena. Granted Serena is definitely not at her best, but Steph was hitting some beautiful winners at Serena the game she broke her in the first set.

Meh.

I didn't think she looked particularly good. Average at best.

Yup. Backhand has flare and she can hit some nice shots with it, but both sides lack power and she misses shots that she should make.

I dunno, I'd say she is good. That first serve was a huge liability though!!! You can't have a 19 % of first serves! :o

I'm still awaiting the return of the real S. Williams...

She did beat the shit out of the second serves. The close games were on Serena's serve.

Well, obviously not her usual self. Wasn't fully extending. Stephanie was playing well, IMO though. Horrid, horrid serving from her though. She was hardky putting any first serves in. You just had to count them!

Following her victory over Serena at the Wimbledon, Craybas actually believed she was on the verge of bourgeoning career. That her win was not due so much the way Serena played, but because she, Craybas finally had her game come together at that particular time after weeks hard work.
She even got a Fed Cup selection out of it.

She is a good player, I'm not going to deny that. But there's nothing in her game that's especially good that I think will make her into a contender of any kind. She's a solid player IMO, and that's it.

Cohen is good to a point. Remember, she was the only player to lose a set to a Canadian :tape: (4-6 6-4 6-0 to El Tabakh)

Well, she is at least better than 92 in the world, but for the serve. The backhand is a weapon. But usually these girls play well for a set-and-a-half, and then we don't hear of them again - again see Santangelo and Haynes.

honestly i didnt see cohen choke and stop playing well.



we have to give serena some credit, cohen was playing pretty well at first but serena started to bash the ball and rip winners of the first strike from 0-2 down in the second... for cohen to even keep the second set close was pretty amazing to watch her retrieve all those balls and fend off that power.



i predict she will be top 50 atleast...

We've seen it so many times though....a lower ranked player playing well against the top players, slightly above themselves. But when they play those ranked around them and below them, they can't reproduce that sort of form. Stephanie COULD be good, but she needs to get fitter as many have pointed out.

Cohen Aloro top 50 :tape:
I've seen her play against Dementieva (3sets) disgusting match, errors, errors, DF's from both sides, overweight from Cohen Aloro, brrrr,
don't think so, maybe if she would start train like a justine she could be top 50, but now ....

Thatís how it always is when a mediocre player beats/competes against one top ranked player.
Suddenly, she has a ton of promise and sheís a potential star of the WTA Tour.. :rolleyes:
Letís just forget about the rest of her results for the last few years.
If she can beat/compete with a top ranked player who is only 60-70% fit, then sheís really, really good.
Give me a fuckiní breakÖ :rolleyes:

I don't see anyone saying she will be number one in the world in this thread, so how is your general comment relevant, especially since you did not see the match?

Who exactly are you talking about? Haynes? She should get the praise because she was good. Craybas? I don't know if anyone was screaming she was so talented either.

Jokes appart I've always thought that if these girl can play tennis as proffesionals must be because they must have at least a thin trace of talent; it's a pity but seems that eyes are always focused in top 10, leaving others without any recognition:(
