I just replayed it and didn't hear anything about the speed. :weirdo:

They just said something like "...and Vaidisova clocks a forehand winner to win the match".

Vaidosova and Dementieva both move a step closer toward a possible Blonde Bomber R16 showdown.

Nikki's ground game was pretty awful today. Take away her serve and she had like 10/15 winners to 45 errors. That's not gonna get her to the quarters.

More than that.

Anyway, Jill makes you play that one extra shot and doesn't give much pace so I'm not surprised by the high UE count from Nicole.

Nicole wasn't playing too well.

A lot of UE's, but she picked it up in the third. :)

Wow, 18 aces. :eek:

Scary. That's more aces over 3 sets than Roddick hit in 4. Plus BPs erased with big serves as usual.

In the handful of points ES showed, Craybas was playing smartly - with just the right measure of aggressiveness to benefit from Nicole's slowness and entering the court whenever possible to dictate play. Plus I believe Craybas held serve rather easily throughout the first set. People tend to lump Craybas in with the stereotypical retrievers when she's actually quite aggressive whenever she has the chance - a bit like Schruff. Bottom line she's a good player who gets no respect around here.

18 aces!! :eek: thats huge.

that is some tough playing from nicole. i dont like that she lost the second set but she really steamrolled in the third. thats the mental fortitude we want to see right? :scared:
