Alizé was leading 3:1 and 5:3 in third set!

She came back from 1:3 in tiebreak! :woohoo:

Well done Alizé! Now good luck against Ivanovic! :bounce:

But Alize, please play shit against Ana! :crying2:

And don't forget to send nice high balls on her forehand, the way you usually do. Be a good girl, will you? ;)

AJDE Ana! :bounce:

@nestor_bgd: Please DON'T. Ana hates high balls on her forehand side. ;)

Zhang had 82% first serve in only 2dfs and not many Ues and some good shots her ranking will rise.

Why? Shouldn't they be in her strike zone?

When I said her balls are worse, I meant they are worse for the opponent! Ana had lot of trouble returning them in Wimbledon.
I think Zheng is very good. ;)

As long as the ball is above Ana's waist + on her forehand, chances of a winner are dramatically high. :drool:

I just realized there is a Zhang in the story. http://i38.tinypic.com/f3uu8h.gif
I have never heard of her before...http://i34.tinypic.com/5ow2mg.gif
But like every Chinese player, she is very likely dangerous. ;)

No. If it's above her shoulder, she can't do that. Watch the RG final again. In the part that Safina was coming back in the 1st set, that was what Safina did to her. She can't handle it as well as waist-height ones. And oh, I prefer opponents to hit to her backhand. In her shitty form of late, Ana will overhit her forehand.

^ Of course she can't produce a winner if the ball is that high. But she has some really good solutions for those balls.
I will be more specific this time: "On forehand, above waist, and below shoulder, please." http://i36.tinypic.com/2ic1loy.gif

Cornet has nothing left.Her season has been great but she seems runing out of gas lately (her match against Elena was horrible).
Still, she won :)

If Ana doesn't beat Alize I for the first time have to say would be thinking negative about her achievements

OK :)

If you want to discuss this topic further, though, I suggest you go to Ana's forum here or Ana's official website. I think you'll know which poster I am on Ana's official web. ;) DON'T REVEAL IT HERE THOUGH. :scared:

Did anyone watch the match; did Alize play shit or Shuai played amaze? :confused:
