Tough first round for em' both. Nice win for Sania. It appears as though things are finally starting to gell for her. If she can manage to keep this consistency, build confidence, and remain healthy she'll sky rocket up the rankings and live up to some of the hype surroundnig her. She's got the weapons to be a champ, that's for sure. I don't know if she's mentally strong or not, but sometimes that just comes with experience.

Too bad Shahar. She had a great start of the year and I thought now that she's back on hardcourts that she would continue where she left off the first part of the year. I wouldn't count Shahar out just yet, Mirza is playing well enough for it to be a respectable loss. Anyone know what's up next for Shahar?

Shahar has definitely lost her game. 6 out of 23 points on second serve are not enough to take home a match. Heart and running are not enough. She should be more aggressive.

She is the only singles player the country has right now, both mens and womens included, who has some potential to compete. Plus, its quite exciting to watch her shots and aggressive game (errors are equally boring, needless to say). To me, these are good enough reasons to follow her. Going ga-ga isn't really the same as being fanatic. Can't you see what happens to Tim Henman in England (I know he showed better results than Sania, but then the hype was proportionately higher too)?

Congrats Sania!:bounce: With being good friends, it was not going to be a good match you could tell from the SB that they dont like playing against each other. Sania did me proud, not only did she recovered from losing the 2nd set but mentally she's up there in the early rounds. She must be physically drained out or maybe she worked very hard in the 3 months she was out this year.

She was serving crap against Peer cuz she was her friend and felt the pressure, playing against Eleni wont be a problem for Sania, because she will have the crowd behind and defend her points, even if it takes 3 sets so be it! Because as we've seen from Peer match, against Morigami and Bammer she can pull it out the bag. GO Sania!:worship:

You are probably right. But then, in the current women's tennis context, there are a bunch of them who do not probably have anything spectacular. Take, for example, Bartoli. Actually, Sania's b/h isn't really that bad, may not be spectacular though.

Fair enough.She can easily become a threat if she keeps her consitency at this level but I can't see her going far in Gs at this moment.Her match against Chakvetadze was very revealing.When a player upset her forehand (because the most part of her game is built on her forehand), she has no solution and she's totally lost on the court.

You've got to give Sania credit she played SO MUCH tennis last week remember Sania was the singles final but she also WON the doubles title that's A LOT of tennis. Also want to point out Sania WON the doubles title in Cincinatti last WEEK as well. Now this is GOOD STUFF. But I agree with the other person this isn't a major upset to be honest. We have always said Sania is BETTER then her ranking and she IS. Sania's got the game to DEFINITELY be top 20 that's for sure. Its nice to see her get another top 20 win. Its real nice to see. I also believe Sania has MORE WEAPONS then Shahar does.

Bartoli's has an average game nothing spectacular or anything too powerful. the only thing she wons is a bunch of tier III and Tier IV tournaments. Apart from that she doen't really have any other weapons to win bigger tournaments.

The fact that Sania won doubles shows that she's just not all forehead, it means she can play at the net too, or insider the baseline and strategize too.
I think she's going to be top 10 sometime in the future. She's also really young and has a lot of time to work on her game. The only person who has a better forehand then her right now is Serena I think. At least Sania has a weapon.

Mirza and Peer Put On a Great Show

Sania Mirza (IND) 6 4 6
Shahar Peer (ISR) 3 6 2

India’s Sania Mirza, showing that she’s capable of going deep into the Acura Classic draw, defeated Shahar Peer, 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, in a first-round match on Stadium Court.

Peer and Mirza, who are playing doubles together this week, were all business as they pounded heavy ground strokes from the baseline from start to finish during the match which took 2 hours and 3 minutes.

Mirza, who reached the singles final in Stanford last week, continued her impressive play as she used her strong forehand to set up winning points throughout the afternoon.

The momentum of the match swung back and forth as there were a combined 15 service breaks in the match, which was played before a large day session crowd.

After splitting the first two sets, Mirza picked up her game and began pressuring Peer with her service returns.

Mirza opened the final set by holding serve and then broke Peer when the Israeli double faulted on the 14th point of the game. Despite dropping her serve in the next game, Mirza broke back and then fought off a break point in the fifth game to hold serve and take a 4-1 lead.

Later, with the score at 5-2 in Mirza’s favor, Peer served to stay in the match but fell behind 0-30. Mirza then hit a backhand service return long to make the score 15-20.

Mirza got to match point when she slammed a high forehand volley for a winner. On the next point, Mirza pounded a cross court forehand which Peer could only return in the net.

The Indian yelled, “Yes!” and pumped her fist as she celebrated her victory.

Mirza advances to a second round match against Eleni Daniilidou.
Mirza is ranked 31 in the world.
Mirza now leads Peer 2-1 in career head-to-head meetings.
Mirza reached the fourth round of the 2005 US Open.
Mirza improves her 2007 match record to 21-12.
Mira has represented India in Fed Cup play.
Mirza is making her third career Acura Classic appearance. She reached the third round in 2005 and 2006.
Peer and Mirza teamed to win the doubles championship at the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event in Stanford last week.
Peer is ranked 18 in the world.
Peer has represented Israel in Fed Cup play.
Peer reached the quarterfinals of the 2007 Australian Open.
Peer is making her third career Acura Classic appearance.

This is what they say at MSNBC

Mirza, a finalist at Stanford on Sunday, beat her doubles partner by going to the net more often than usual in the final set, trying to shorten rallies. The strategy paid off for Mirza, who said she was tired from playing all week at the Bank of the West Classic.

"I really didn't want to spend so much time on the court,'' said Mirza, who lost in straights sets at Stanford to Anna Chakvetadze. "We all know that (Peer) is one of the best on the Tour at running down shots. If I keep hitting and ripping from behind the baseline, she's going to keep tracking down balls.''

Mirza instead decided uncharacteristically to come to the net in the third set against her Israeli opponent. It worked as Mirza jumped out to a 4-1 lead.

I would again agree with most of what you said. Until she improves her serve to get a few cheap points and hold more often than not, its hard to compete with the top echelons of the game. Having said that, I would assume Stanford final does not probably reflect her current form due to the combo of lacking fitness compared to the russian girls, overdose of tennis in that last fortnight, and may be a bad day. But things are looking better for her compared to what we used o see, say, an year or 6 months back.

WhatTheDeuce
Aug 1st, 2007, 12:35 AM
1) She's not "just a forehand." When her game is clicking, her backhand is quite penetrating as well, and she has the ability to hit winners from anywhere on the court, against anyone. Not everyone can do that like she can. She's that good a ballstriker. And plus, her doubles success proves that there's more to her than just her ability to hit hard. She can strategize and hit different shots when she needs to.

2) Yes, her forehand is by far the strongest part of her game and she builds her points around it, but to use that against her isn't fair. Fact of the matter is, it's still one of the best forehands on the WTA Tour (and probably the most explosive as well). And that's more than almost any player can say about any single shot.

You can't have the success she's had lately (or ever) with "just a forehand." Even if it is a damn good one.

That's a clueless analysis from the poster and you have to agree with that nonsense? which player is spectacular in everything? actually how many big weapons are there in the women's game currently?

Sania's forehand is not just yet another forehand.Its a kind of weapon no one else has currently.

The other parts of the game has to support this one big weapon.That's the understanding you guys need to inculcate.

The other parts of the game has to support this one big weapon.That's the understanding you guys need to inculcate.

The issue was whether she could win a match when her forehand is off. ATM, she can't. Whereas if you see a player like Graf, she would win in 9/10 even when its off. Thats where your rest of the game comes into play. The movement, which is a big necessity when you need to run around and take into f/h is not up to the mark in her case. Besides, serve is another key problem area. Ivanovic, e.g. possesses a big serve to set up a lot of easy points. I never said (or agreed) about other players having a lot of big weapons.

Agreed.

My statement was no clueless.I didn't say a player need to be spectacular, I just said Sania has no strenght except her forehand when you see her play and it's not enough for the moment.

I love wtaworld because of that, you need to say what people want to hear or you're clueless. :help:
