sam's actually winning a bunch of points by going to the net. she went up to 3-0 when she was going more to the net

Makarova has a very good down the T serve.

Sammy Stones
Jun 18th, 2010, 11:47 AM
^ and she keeps hitting that

1-1 titanic struggle. If Sam can serve 20% better, she won't have to fight this hard.

tennisforadults

Sorry I meant 2-1

Denisex3

Nice serve.

Keadz
Jun 18th, 2010, 11:49 AM
Slice serve isn't working for her today, and her kick serve is going to the forehand.

Anyway, come to the net more!

Denisex3
Jun 18th, 2010, 11:49 AM
Wow, good net play.

tennisforadults
Jun 18th, 2010, 11:51 AM
2-2 better play this game.

Finally, a comfortable hold.

Good net play and body serve. Just need to return a bit better.

Keadz
Jun 18th, 2010, 11:52 AM
:eek: it just doesn't get any better :lol:

Denisex3

But Makarova still holds.. *3-4

Drine

Damn, another BP opportunity missed :(

Sammy Stones
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:02 PM
a wasted BP...

tennisforadults
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:03 PM
Sam's not serving terribly bad. But Makarova's serving very very well. She's coming up with big serves at key moments. Partly why Sam hasn't been very successful at converting.

claypova
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:03 PM
6-7 3-4 :hysteric:

Keadz
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:04 PM
Forehand is so useless on grass, so much for flattening it out. It just sits up for Makarova to hit it.

goroos1994
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:05 PM
30 all

goroos1994
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:05 PM
ace! allez! 40-30

Sammy Stones
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:05 PM
finally an ace! somebody forgot to take her ace-aid today

Denisex3
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:05 PM
Time to rip out the ace. :hearts:

Thank god.

Sammy Stones

the ball was on the line :x

Keadz
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:08 PM
She always seems to be hitting it to her oppenants when she comes up to net.

Anyway, feel sory for Makarova there. Sam probably doesn't deserve this match...

tennisforadults
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:08 PM
Lucky call for Sam. That ball looks in!

claypova
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:09 PM
4-4 :)

Keadz
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:09 PM
Thats how you hit a ball away Sam, not towards the oppenant!

Denisex3
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:11 PM
Argh..

claypova

This is how you choke/Tank for Wimbledon :)

Up 3-0 had 3BP to go 4-0
Up 5-3 serving for the match then loses serve to love..

Denisex3

Hoping for a miracle here.

Keadz

OK enough of this really. Either try or just walk off the court.

claypova

Keadz
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:18 PM
If she shows some signs of life, I could get enthusiastic. She barely even looks like she wants to win, just going with the motions...Doesn't even care she is playing shit anymore.

Denisex3
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:18 PM
Win this set 7-5 and then bagel her! ;)
Plan ruined. :( Win the TB then!

Keadz

More serve and volley please. Thats been the only good part of this match from Sam.

Wimbledon is on her mind right know...

Denisex3
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:20 PM
Makarova serving really well.

Drine

This time I'm really hoping for the TB :lol:

Sams angry face is adorable. She needs a hug :sad:

Sammy Stones

Damn, good rally though.

Drine
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:25 PM
What a tough loss :awww: Horrible performance today, that's disappointing :sad: but she did reach the SF again so still a good run ;)
Let's focus on Wimby now :)

GAME OVER. :sad:

Keadz

Lol...

On to Wimbledon...hopefully she picks it up, because that was fairly shit.

Atich
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:25 PM
Too bad... but she has done a great Eastbourne !

Sammy 4 eva!!!

Argh. Way too many stupid errors from Sam. Really needs to pick it up for Wimbledon.

Denisex3

Still #6 so.. :woohoo:

tennisforadults

Close match. Makarova was better at key points. Served well, rallied well. Even her net play was pretty impressive.

Sam seemed to win most of her points at the net or from good serves. Forehand under performing today.

Sammy Stones
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:27 PM
started with a bang then got banged? dang

Huntress55

She got all her crapness/frustration out before Wimbledon. Well done Sam. :p

Still a SF, and #6, alot to be happy about too.

claypova

A bad day for us. We must quickly forget, and the rank #6 on the rating to go London to beat all. Come on Sam!

Sammy Stones

Finally someone with some positive thoughts :worship:

definetly :yeah:
Makarela is a flaming brickwall. Sam could not beat her from baseline at all and she was unable to get to the net as often as she wanted. Sad to see her lose but Maka was better :( Still impresssive to see Sam's serve and her powerful strokes :hearts: but Maks returned every single one of them and never got a ball out, which was frustating :(
It's good to see Sam showing her emotions on court...loved it when she got the warning :lol: but proves her passion and how much she wants every match in every surface :worship:...and WTH she reached semis which is better than last year :)

I agree. I really think Sam didn't do too much wrong. Her serve and volley game worked well, and won her points many times. Makarova was just doing everything right. No errors in long rallies and she basically chased down every shot Sam gave. She served big when required. To win the match, Sam would have to produce aces like she did against Baltacha, and it was probably asking too much.
