WTF why isn't marion/petra on cc :facepalm:

probably because they wanted to put Li Na and Wozniacki on cc but wanted people at Grandstand to have a singles match as well...Marion is cool but Li Na is holding a slam now and Woz is #1 (and 3-time defending champ) so who else would they put on grandstand?

Shocker of a match so far!

Li started really well but has gone off the boil and is making some wild errors now

Pav is serving really poorly, why did she change the service action?! And how did she beat Vinci so comfortably?!

I agree with Sam Smith on Eurosport that Pav is unsure of what her best game is... I think she needs to attack more, get the first strike in because her movement is not the best.

Crowd isn't really into the match, but might be slightly more in favor of Li Na.

Pavs game seems to have gone downhill, especially her serve, and this has happened after all her extra fitness training and improvements to her serve. Also, her outfit is awful, bordering on Dinara's old outfits.

Come on, Pavs!

Pavs coach tells her to forget about the serve and it will go in, and focus on making Li feel her on the court and she will get nervous. She's also too far from the baseline when she serves. Pavs is whining in response. Oh, baby. Play more deep, he adds at the end.

McHale requested to see her coach. Spoke in Spanish. Something (literally translated) "to the right, to the right, to the right" I'm guessing to the forehand?
Anyways, McHale's voice in Spanish is beautiful.

For me, Christina is equivalent to Woz, but she has made errors at crucial points (not just in this match). She doesn't have the same confidence level and perhaps drive to win. So, it seems a Woz win is inevitable. Maybe not, though. I hope Christina can figure out how to have more success with her game.

Actually, I never really find Caro's matches exciting and then coupled with similar play, well, ...

One would think Caro would use matches like these to try out new game plan. Approach shots, rush to net

Instead she is content with rallying all night, just glued to the baseline

I don't think she can experiment when she lost to CM last week, though.

I think she really wants to get back on the winning track and get this title again. So...no experimenting. :)

Good point.

But she is not taking the initiative.

A non-tennis fan watching this match would have hard time telling who is the highest ranked player, or Caro is only few rank above McHale
