Lol, this result is funny looking at Makarova's season so far. Good result and great tournament for her! Some big scalps.

Sam didn't really seem to care. Everything looked pretty shit today. Now Kanepi in Wimlbedon :unsure: Good luck :lol:

Her vest in the warm up was cool though.

Well done to Makarova though. :)

Kanepi is a tough first round, but if Sam's draw is easy she more than deserves it after RG :wavey:

Who is "Marakova" ?

goldenlox
Jun 18th, 2010, 12:30 PM
Makarova has a good serve, volley and real good lefty angles on her groundies.
But usually she beats herself. Sam beat Sam 1st

sam's returns were abysmal. i haven't seen her so negative in a long time, neither.
makarova doesn't have pretty shots, but she has good court sense and was the better player overall.

All credit to Makarova. She served really well, very effective both down the T and out wide. She has excellent court coverage, running after every ball and hitting them back deep. Any rallies she will usually come out on top.

Sam, on the other hand, served reasonably and won many points at the net. But everything else was pretty poor. I've rarely seen her so frustrated - grass is bringing out all her emotions. Her forehand is nothing like what we've seen on clay. The ball bounces too low to be in her comfortable hitting zone.

On to Wimby! Please lift your game!!!

sam gets to sleep in tomorrow. that's nice.

congrats to makarova. she double-chinned her way to the final really nicely and might actually win it

Even though I'm fan of Stosur, this time I'm so happy Makarova won! :banana: I actually see her playing for first time and she impressed me. Her attitude is so cool. :) She is so cute, calm and she doesn't react frustrating after close line calls (btw - Eastbourne need hook-eye so badly!!! :help:). Really great week for Ekaterina! :yeah: I think I'm her new fan. :D Oh, and it's nice to see her English is even worse than mine! :inlove: :p
Makarova for the win tommorow and on for the win on Wimbledon!!! :rocker2: :p

Makarova needs these points. She drew Venus in round 2.
Terrible draw for a player who will probably have their slam brealthru at Wimbledon

Forgot how much I enjoy watching Makarova on grass... her shots are a bit oddly produced (forehand especially looks peculiar) but love the width and spin she gets scooping the forehand out wide. Doesn't always look like she's hitting very hard, but judging from how effective her shots are when she's playing well, they must be deceptively weighty and tricky to read. Soooo many mishits from Stosur, and a lot of that has to be credited to Makarova's hitting.

Interesting when a "lesser" player has a tournament they clearly love and excell at. Must go check Makarova's other grass results... since she really does look good on the surface.

i agree! in all matches i watched there were some awful decisions IMHO.

sam has been average at best all week, she ran into a player playing good tennis that suits a grass court and the outcome was to be expected.

i guess this week might give sam hope she can at least justify her seeding at wimbledon, but it wont be easy.

like I said in another thread yesterday Stosur was really bad against Hantuchova. The only reason she won, Hantuchova was even worse.

Still not impressed with Makarova, she's such an incomplete player with awkward movement and shot selection. Her backhahd seems to be the only solid part of her game but she's capable to mishit (due to questionable footwork) routine shots even on this side.
And I've probably never seen anyone struggling that much with slices.

OK, now know that that player, Makarova, is due to meet the 2nd seed, Venus Williams in the 2nd round of Wimby! When are folks going to acknowledge that the WTA has NEVER been this deep with really good players. Back is the "good old days" 1st week matches never mattered, for top seeds.

She is a completely different player on grass.
Suddenly not useless anymore.

Now wins over Pennetta, Petrova, Kuznetsova and Stosur here!:eek:
All in straight sets!

did you watch ivanovic vs sam last year?
that was one of the best matches ive ever seen ana play, she would have come close to beating anyone including the williams sisters with the way she played that day
