Really like Dinara's form, how she's handling the pressure of being #1 and the favorite for this slam. Just great.

Safina is making very few errors and destroying a lot of second serves.

Pavly in the second set epitomises what is wrong with women's tennis - refusal to change tactics and do anything different. Pavly was playing a better version of herself, but still tried to outhit Safina. Not gonna work.

Amazing ball striking & timing, her movement and serve were great also! :worship: Playing like the #1, only dropped 4 games so far :speakles:

:hug: Nastya played well but didn't stand a chance.

:armed: Rezai - lot of winners in the match to come!

Nastya hit more winners than UE and lost 1st set 2-6

After watching this match...I've changed my mind. I don't want Ana to play her. That was downright scary. Pavly did well to make the first few games close and to save the match points with spectacular winners. But Dinara was scary. Cracking winners left and right. Very few errors and ran VERY fast.

Five matches complete so far today, and three of them have bagel sets.

Interesting.

Dinara's a fucking machine this week. :eek: Three bagels, two breadsticks, only 4 games lost in 2 matches. In-freaking-credible.

I seriously don't think anyone can stop Dinara winning this thing, especially if Serena loses in her next couple of rounds.

1st set was really close, after that Pavly lost all her belief.

Dinara already played 60 60 and 61 61 matches on the Chatrier. Another beatdown doesn't deserve to be put on the main courts.

Safina v Pavlyuchenkova will be another 62 61 win for Dinara.

Almost called it.

Wonderful match from Dinara :hearts:

I love Aravane so much but it will be a miracle to stop Dina till the final.

Dinara has better serve, better angles and is faster on the court.

Anyway i will be cheering for Aravane :kiss:

I'll be very interested to see how does Rezai can compete with Safina. I really want to see the Ana vs Safina rematch.

Safina's only challenge to the final will come from either Ivanovic or Azarenka if they make it to the Qtrs.

You've gotta believe. Aravane's got a bigger game than Dinara has seen so far. I'm not going to say that I think Aravane is the favorite, but the way she is playing, she has a chance. Plus, she is match-tough, having had to fight her way through some tough spots. I'm not sure Dinara's had to break a sweat yet. I think it will be closer than people think.

Clijsters was rolling at the AO in '07, hardly losing any games, and then as the tournament went on, and she encountered better opponents, she looked more and more vulnerable until Maria tore her a new one in the SF. Not saying it will happen here, but I do think Aravane will give her a battle.

allrounder

Well done Dinara.

Anastasia was embarrasingly bad in the second set and very one dimensional. I know shes only 17 but he's got a lot of work to do if she's going to become a top 10 player in the future. A bit of variety wouldn't be a bad idea.

Safina's 2009 FO = Pierce's 1994 FO? :unsure:

May 29th, 2009, 01:57 PM
^^ my thought exactly.Safina is having a Pierce-like run (only 4 games lost in 3 matches :eek:).

The way Dinara's playing I don't really think Aravane's a credible threat. I mean, she's hardly Miss Consistency. I'd be shocked if she could beat her.

True, but I think Rezai should be able to win more than 2 games.

that'S so true...I guess she will have no problems with rezai and a surprise sf...hoepfully she plays the final against someone who has a good record against her (not jankovic)

Yes, she has dropped serve - she lost a service game in the second set to Diatchenko.

So going by the pattern, she will lose at most 3 games in a set.

But that will come, Caro and Vika had this period against top players, she will get better!

safina played great, if she doesn't win the title its only because she chokes it as no one is playing anywhere near her tennis.

why on hardcourts does she play such an UE filled game, yet on clay she has great stats and ratios?
