Nice to see Tati win. :woohoo:

But it wasn't the best of matches. Probably the windy conditions didn't help.

I fear that Vakulenko is going in reverse right now. While I didn't expect her to win, the score should have at least been closer.

Julia was just awful today, when she was taking the groundstrokes high around her shoulders and was able to get over them she was hitting well but so many unforced errors, even in the wind. Tati played solidly and looked classy on the occasional shot but I think Julia would have lost to pretty much anyone in the draw playing like that today... :help:

Very good showing by Tati. :clap2: She did a good job of taking care of business against an opponent she should beat. This is a very good start for her. BTW nice of her to serve up a bagel. :D

This was a poorly played and attended match,thats an injustice to paying fans.Womens tennis is very poorly managed at the moment compared to the masters in montreal where every match was sold out.I think at this point women tennis is slowly going down and the withdrawals are really affecting attendance at most events whereas mens tennis is getting more and more popular.

Congrats Tatiana! :clap2: Good win for her, even though Julia is in somewhat of a slump since choking away the match vs Swietłana at Wimbledon. :(

I might be a bit too picky, but I find a bit disrespectful when the threadtitle is written in 'nickname/first name def. surname' style. :o

I think so too it's ok in the Fan Forum but in Gm it's ,like you said, disrespecting.

Anyways Tati :hearts:

Nothing to help Toronto. Boring matches.

Seriously, the stadium is empty. Matches are so boring.
Tomorrow is Canadians Day. <

Montreal was packed every day with exciting matches every session.

Glad Tati won but I can't help but feel like she deserved to lose for wearing that terrible outfit. :lol:

Try and find your form this week Tati. You need it to have any chance of defending US Open points.

What a horrible match. Obviously most of that was due to a very weird wind circulating on the courts.

Vakulenko sucked the whole way through. Golovin started off slow, then got better and better as the match went on. She finally started to step into her shots more in the 2nd set, which is really nice to see. Hopefully the wind stops because judging from this match, Tati is a horrible wind player :tape:.

Julia has no footwork and in the type of conditions that were in play she needed to. She just kept taking so many big steps to the ball, there was no little steps and when the ball was blown out of position she would just wallop it and it would go about a meter out at least. Its a shame the matches ES showed were fairly woeful :o Hopefully they get better as the week goes on.

I see that Tati has finally decided to bring back the red knickers, which i find to be very sexy. :D :drool: Hopefully they`ll give her some much needed good luck.
