View Full Version : WWW Eastbourne QF: (1)Zvonareva vs (7)Stosur

Zvonareva plays Stosur again:facepalm:. If this was clay or HC, Zvonareva would surely lose, but this is grass, Stosur's worst surface, so I think she has a glimmer of hope. So who do you think will win?

Stosur's already won this match in Vera's head!

She faced her fears against Serena, which will have given her a lot of confidence. I think this match could go either way.

Sam had 11 aces today, and is slowly gaining confidence on grass.

Vera is tired and weary, and has to come back after a 3 hour mental and physical match with Serena?

Sam in straights.

Stosur in 3.

Sam still sucks on grass, but the H2H and physical condition of Vera will probably help Sam.

Did you watch the match? Vera is a nervous wreck right now, this match just installed her worst nightmares all over again.

Actually the surface will even up the match a bit. Sam's serve and forehand won't kick as much as normal, so Vera should have more chance returning. Also because the surface is so fast Sam will have less time to set up for the forehand and run around the backhand. In fact it might be fast enough that Vera can rush Sam, which she isn't powerful enough to do normally.

I agree with the poster that said today's win will give Vera a lot of confidence. She just has to believe she can win this match!

Stosur wins by w/o even if Vera is on court. :facepalm:

Jun 15th, 2011, 05:12 PM
Stosur is Vera's evil doppelganger, or something like that
Sam wins 61 62

It's gonna be interesting. Sam seems to be in good form in the last two games. But Vera always has better fighting qualities. Hope Sam can win in 3 sets!

go Vera. do your best.

Bepa's only win was on grass
And it's grass again

Bookies got Bepa as the fav :oh:

Jun 15th, 2011, 09:07 PM
I have to officially state now, that if Sam Cyborg beats Bepa then as is the fashion at the moment, Bepa has performed a strategic tank.

Jun 15th, 2011, 09:17 PM
What cause to Bepa be mental(or something else) slave by Sam?

Jun 15th, 2011, 09:19 PM
Vera hopefully. :angel:

Jun 15th, 2011, 09:36 PM
Zvonareva's fit, so she should be able to recover somewhat for tomorrow. I'll go with her in straights. The Serena win was huge for her.

Jun 15th, 2011, 10:36 PM
Vera Zvonareva in 2 sets.

Sam, huge opportunity for another semi final at eastbourne. Really excited to see her play!

Would be nice if she took this good form to Wimbledon for once, she seems to get decent results here and crash out early in London every year.
