*5:3, Jelena serves

0:0 good serve and excellent FH winner
15:0 another FH winner
30:0 again oustanding FH
40:0 missed it this time
40:15 Kostanic is playing her best tennis at the moment, commanding the point by strong FHs and showing deft touch at the net to finish the set.

6:3

very poor performance by Kloesel and steady one by Kosanic, who is really starting to play well in the last few games and obviously has momentum now. Kostanic big favourite to close it out in 2 sets.

30:30 2nd serve, rally of 8 shots, Kloesel gives away point with UE FH
40:30 2nd serve, another long rally and another FH winner by Kostanic. He is on fire.

6:3 2:0*

Easy win for Kostanic in the end, very very good display by her. Sandra on the other side was pathetic for most of the match, not showing any poise and deisre to fight when things when Kostanic got ahead. Kostanic`s FH was on brilliant level, while Sandra`s serve was atricious. Easy win for Croatia.

6:3 6:1

Looking forward to next, to see in what kind of shape Anna-Lena is.

I doubt that ALG will withstand it, more likely to see Lisjak win and an uncatchable (http://www.dict.cc/englisch-deutsch/uncatchable.html) 0-2 backlog :mad: :banghead:

Seems that Kostanic played well and Kloesel not. I am not sure if Malek is a better choice though, I actually doubt it... And I remember Sandra won the important points vs. Croatia, so she can cope with the pressure.

I hope ALG makes a good start, this will be very important after her long layoff to gain confidence in her shots. GO ALG!

He is moving alright, but Lisjak isn`t someone who could make her run. Gronefeld is clearly more talented player here, but he is making too many UEs so far. Conditioning might be a problem for her later in the match, we will see.

Sorry but putting zero-confidence ALG on second with the score being 0-1 is obviously suicide.

I know that Rittner won't resign after this debacle. But she really should if she wanted to keep the tiniest bit of dignity.


she is "posten-geil" (sorry, don´t know a english word for it) and will never resign

The momentum is shifting, Gronefeld looks in drivers seat now, but can he maintain the level of play long enough to win this match?

Gronefeld to serve 3:1

0:0 huge point, both with terrific strokes and a lot of running, Lisjak got the unfavorable net cord, but ALG does not make use of situation and send FH wide
0:15 good serve, return long
15:15 2nd serve, poor BH Lisjak
30:15 2nd serve, poor BH return, Lisjak is playing a lot worse than in the first set
40:15 easy FH netted ALG
40:30 another big miss with FH, after excellent 2nd serve
40:40 serve winner
AD:40 long rally, Lisjak misses FH

4:1 ALG

Gronefeld should easily take this match, considering the way Lisjak is performing now. Her body language is very bad and he is considered a weak player mentally. More experience and pure quality in her groundstrokes should bring the first point for Germany.
