God, Kuznetsova is a disgrace for womens tennis. She has no plan B, just hits brainless shots and has no clue what to do with the wind. And this is a Top5 player, truly pathetic. I never liked her and never will, because she has such an ugly game and is sooooo uninspiring on court. If you guys are serious: When was the last time you saw a good match from her? I cant remember. She always has these ugly, low-quality matches. I wouldnt pay a cent to watch her play. :o

Top5 player :spit:

Aug 17th, 2007, 05:25 PM
but yay tatiana. Now Thats what i call winning ugly. Im glad to see a bit of brad gilbert rubbed off on her. She showed us that she can be mentally sound and determined in matches but now she has to be like that all the time and not have mini breakdowns and brainfarts in matches. Also glad to see tati attacking again and towards the end of the first set, she finally got her forehand back :bounce:

1st top 10 win since AI!
1st top 5 win since god knows when!

I'm really happy Tati won 'cause she could have lost in 2 and even if she tanked the whole 2 1st sets, she managed to win the 2nd.. She would have lost this match in 2006 or before..
Anyway, well done for your 10th top10 win and good luck in the SF :D

I just feel Sveta tanked this match if she was playing someone like Venus she would have been sweating all over the court for a win.The final set clearly was tanked and its really disappointing to watch such lousy matches.Toronto event on a scale of 1-10 its a 3 very disappointing tournament.

To be honest: I have never seen Sveta committing such a huge number of unforced errors - obviously her game was blowing in the wind, literally. This is no tragedy - the long and winding road of the Canadian Open has always had this kind of problem and not everybody is in the position to cope with that. No need to blame Sveta who is a brave and stable player under normal circumstances.

You're right. I can't remember a good match by Sveta in recent times. US open final 2004 comes to mind and that's about it. Everytime I see her she sprays so many balls including sitters and in general she's pretty useless against slam contenders or flat hitting players that can move her around. Not that Golovin is exciting to watch.

Aug 17th, 2007, 08:54 PM
Over 50 errors, Swieta... really at her most brainless.

LOL That statement was really funny to me. :lol: I don't know what Sveta was thinking...is she just tired or something. I hope 2008 is a better year for her because 2007 has been an neverending disappointment. At this point of the year, I doubt Sveta will win a title this year. If I'm not mistaken, Sveta hasn't won a title yet in 2007. :confused: Anyway, I wish her the best, but damn...

Aug 17th, 2007, 08:55 PM
I saw the first set and then went to play Tennis.

I was feeling confident for Sveta then I saw her call for Stefan Ortega. I immediately thought of the German Open final and decided to myself that the match was up for grabs. I got home 30 minutes ago and am not really surprised by the result.

Personally I would like to see Svetlana stop calling for her coach after winning the first set in big matches. I just think it sends out all the wrong messages.

Well done Tatiana.

I saw highlights from the fed match and it at least looked like there were several good points, but even if this is not true, no way it was as bad as the rubbish that was on display today (which I actually wasted my time watching) - 9 breaks of serve in a row is ridiculous, especially since a number of these breaks were due to 4 unforced errors from the server.
