no wonder, I have never really saw Katarina playing. I really like this girl, nice court coverage, footwork, and strokes....pity this old ESPN a**hole keeps on claiming she is from Slovakia, oh well...typical American ignorance :(

she put a nice fight today, hit hard and clean, stayed agressive, nice job, seems clay must be her best surface

Katarina rarely goes very deep in many of these tournaments as well, which is also a factor. Television coverage doesn't usually begin until the QF stage.

Needs to get her mind set right

She could be a pusher and winner:hug:

They showed her in 2005 at this same tournament.
She had a chance to win that match against Dementieva and she didn't have the belief to pull it out.

It's probably her worst surface. Grass is her best. She really is at her best when she's being aggresive with the forehand and attacking the net.

When she crushed Mauresmo at Zurich. :eek: :drool:

It's Cliff Drysdale, and he was a top player in the 60's. He's also from South Africa.

Typical ignorance on your part.

Well, I'm sure Slovenia-Slovakia is a bigger ignorance then being sarcastic

Right, but I can't understand how any real tennis fan hasn't seen her play. She's been around for years featured in many matches against top players on American television so the OP needs to do some research. She played well today, it was no surprise considering the surface.;)

She was also shown at 2003 Wimbledon against Venus in the rd 64.

ummm no American TV shows the stars. You don't see them showing Mardy Fish over Roger Federer or Nadal or safin,etc.

Just like I almost never see craybas, and she's been playing for years.

Well I still think her game suits Grass better. I'm just completely wrong.

She can play on any surface really and with so few tourneys on grass it often depends on the draw. She grew up on clay though, but her playing style does suit the faster surface quite well.

:haha:You're the one who came in here acting like you've never heard of Srebotnik before. Television coverage centers around top players whether American or non-American. I don't know why you created this ignorant thread? :tape::lol:

She's an all surface all court player.

There is no "weak surface" for her.

And unfortunately by the same token she's not particularly great at any one surface either. Terrific at net, though.

That's fine.
Say what you want. I'm still mad at the bitch for not attempting to play the Olympics which would help someone like Cliff Dysdale know the difference between Slovenia and Slovakia.

Kata is a great player on all surfaces. I'll never forget that match at the US Open when she had mp's on Lindsay. She's a twice French Open mixed champion so she can play on the clay too. She has a good attacking game and can play well from the baseline aswell (that forehand is huge). That is why she is half of the 2nd best doubles team in the world.

I was at that match and you can tell even then Srebotnik did not have the belief to close it out.

That didn't mean I wasn't scared as all hell for Lindsay because there were rumors that it could have been her last US Open and I didn't want her to go out like that losing to Srebotnik.

Lindsay just kept the pressure on Srebotnik and she gave her that match.
And I was sad for Katarina for half a second and then it was :woohoo: Lindsay.

Oh, so you were part of that great crowd that Lindsay actually said helped her get through the match? You should be proud of yourself. From what I remember, she was very thankful for the support she got that day. ;)

They were a good crowd until I got there (I was a bit late).

I was going to be as loud as i could to make sure she got that we wanted to see more of her at that slam.

Hints here and there. Come on Lindsay!!! FIRST SERVE!!!

FIGHT LINDSAY FIGHT!!! KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!!!

That's one thing about Lindsay, if she gets the support, she'll go 120% and give it her all even when she isn't playing well.
That's how she won Amelia Island twice.
