Rogers Cup 2012 : Semi-Final Petra Kvitova v Caroline Wozniacki

Welcome ....

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 05:42 PM
Li Na and Safarova still not on the court yet (Eurosport still showing nonsense filler).

What da hell!?

Livescore has them listed as 1-1 on serve, but I don't see it on the Eurosport Stream.

OK. Now they're showing it on another link.

Petronius
Aug 12th, 2012, 07:56 PM
Lucie choked a 5*-1 lead in the third set. NID.

But Petra's better than Lucie so if she gets past the Dane, she'll have nice chances against Error-Na (22 winners vs. 44 errors for Li).

woz is actually playing the best i've seen her in a long time...and petra's just not patient enough...going for way too much on her shots

Petronius
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:46 PM
Let's be fair, Wozniacki is a pushing queen driving big hitters crazy. This will be an extremely laborious victory, if Petra makes it.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:52 PM
Caroline straight up pushing again, especially to start out the match.

She was just basically hanging on, when Petra was controlling the match.

Unfortunately for Petra, she wasn't taking advantage of the numerous 2nd serves that Wozniaki took early in the set. Also, Petra wasn't cutting off the angles, and moving in off her approach shots, when you knew all Wozniaki wanted to do was get the ball in.

And also Petra is missing a lot of first serves on her own.

Petra should of been the one up 4-1. But let's see if Petra gets it back together, and the Pusher runs out of luck (in this or the 2nd set).

But Petra must serve better, and cut off points off of good approach shots (I.e court positioning is KEY).

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:53 PM
And Petra also needs to add the body serve to her AD serve as well.

Petra just flubbed a approach shot, but at least she followed it with a slice.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:54 PM
Petra has to hold and put the Pressure on Woz.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:54 PM
Not getting in enough first serves, and is missing her aces today.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:56 PM
Petra just needs to mix up her shots more (off speed), and go to the net/move in more and she can beat Woz easily in this match. I hope she doesn't get upset. But it would of helped her immensely if she would of held serve.

But I think she can still win this. She's just got to keep the faith, and play her all court game, and just just be ready to cut off the points when it presents itself.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:57 PM
Petra just wasn't sharp in her serving. If she serves well this set, she can win.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 09:58 PM
I hate that sneaky wide serve on Woz. That's all she can do is go for the lines, with no pace.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:01 PM
Petra should not be losing this match. All Caroline is trying to do is get the ball back into court. It is embarrassing to be lose this way to this pusher. Move forward Petra.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:03 PM
Body Serve in the ad court to Petra. You gotta do that. And yes, she followed it up, by going to the net, finally!

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:06 PM
Yes Petra. Going to the net. Keep it up with the Pusher!

TennisAddict84
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:07 PM
yea, woz is basically trying to hang on for dear life

Petronius
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:07 PM
LOL, are you also watching the Olympics closing ceremony and Petra's match simultaneously?

Break! 2*-1

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:08 PM
OK Petra. You got the break. You better hold now. I know it's humid, and you really don't want to work hard, But please follow up your deep and wide shots, by going to the net, to cut off the points, and give the PUSHA something to think about, please.

Hold Your Serve!!!

That's right Petra mix it up. Just come in more!!!!

Then she make an error, after the beautiful Sam Smith and her partner comments, about "taking women's and all court tennis to the next level".

Petra should of came in on one of those earlier shots.

Excelscior

AfroIYH
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:17 PM
Wozniacki has played well, but Petra has just taken control of her side of the court and not allowed Wozniacki to dictate the match.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:21 PM
Petra missed her chance on that netter-off of the drop shot to break Woz, then serve first in the third set.

It seems like Woz has been serving 2nd serves all match. Petra should of broke her there to.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:23 PM
Come On Petra. You gotta serve better than that.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:24 PM
Ace. And Wozniaki wan't to cheat again.

Nice deep forehand. Petra wins the 2nd set.

To bad she didn't figure it out, early enough in the first set (as well as break Woz when she served earlier in the 2nd set). Now just break her.

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:29 PM
Oh Oh. Rain Delay. Too bad Petra didn't figure it out earlier in the 1st set, to mix up her shots, and go into the net. She could of won easy. SMH

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:30 PM
It's raining now. But I think I see the sun still shining on the court. So hopefully, this will be only a 25 min delay. Oh and they just said that. Lol. OK.

AfroIYH
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:32 PM
More rain what is this Wimbledon?

Excelscior
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:38 PM
Yup Yup. Rain, and more Rain!

I hope if the delay is 25 min, they'll get a true warm up when they come back.

We know Caroline is going to get coaching from her father ("PUSH"), I just hope Petra still has her 2nd set game in the third set, and breaks Woz on her first service game to relax her.

TennisAddict84
Aug 12th, 2012, 10:52 PM
petra MUST stay concentrated and not have any lapses or overhit in early in this 3rd set

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 12:01 AM
Petra wins.

It's funny. Kvitova threw away Woz's next to last return game in the third set, so she could serve the match out. And after some long rallies and tough breaks, Woz luckily/unexpectedly broke Petra.

Then Petra breaks back for 6-3. But she could of won 6-1, and should of won 6-2, in the third set, obviously. Oh well.

Onward.

And of course, Petronius, Sam and her partner weren't counting their Hopman Cup match earlier this year. Lol

Rogers Cup 2012 : Final Petra Kvitova v Li Na

I wonder whether either of the two records more winners than errors. If the trend continues and the weather's bad, I expect at least 20 or 30 errors from both, provided that it's a three-setter.

wow 3 aces in a row for kvitty!

This is what separates Serena from Petra. Serena would almost never mindlessly lose four points in a row on her own serve.

Those may be some costly df's. :(

Oh Petra. Why can't you play like that every point?

Li Na is really a tough match-up for Petra. Unless Petra brings her A-game, she's toast.

Synth
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:32 PM
Tough tough hold there for Kvits.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:34 PM
Petra's having problems with her serve. So she taken a bit off to get in.

Petra needs to mix up her shots with more off speed stuff, to throw Ni La off.

Unusual start for their matches. Cause you Petra blitzes Na in the beginning/1st set.

Synth
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:35 PM
Nice nice slicing by Petra.

Synth
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:36 PM
Petra nets easy 2nd serve. Oh dear.

Excelscior

Petra just gave Li Na a point, and maybe a hold on that 2nd serve in the net. SMH

Aug 13th, 2012, 11:36 PM
Break point now for Petra.

Aug 13th, 2012, 11:42 PM
Nice easy hold by Petra. Na's unraveling. This next service game for her will be important.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:42 PM
Petra needs to keep doing what she's doing; which is just return the ball deep and in the corners, until Na makes an error, or Petra gets a clean shot at the ball. And in between she should mix it up with off speed stuff, especially on defense.

Petronius
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:42 PM
Dead at Sam Smith throwing shades at Li: "Unlike Kvitova, she has no slice" :haha:

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:43 PM
Right now Petra is more solid from the backcourt than Na, and she has to take advantage of that.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:45 PM
Petra should of came in on one of those shots and end the point early.

Synth
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:46 PM
And Petra gets the break. Na continues to unravel.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:46 PM
Come On Petra. Just hold serve.

Gotta get some first serves in Petra.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:49 PM
Petra suprised herself she finally got a first serve in and blew it at the net, that 5-3 service game.

Compose yourself Petra. Just close her out on her serve.

Aug 13th, 2012, 11:50 PM
Very bad service game by Kvitty.

Petronius

These errors on easy sitters may prove costly.

Petra's missing a lot of first serves when it counts. And she got lazy at that easy netter, she missed when she finally got one in, that could of won her the first set.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:58 PM
She can't get a first serve in, and what she doesn't realize is, Na is error prone and going for broke all the time. Petra just has to bide her time.

Excelscior
Aug 13th, 2012, 11:58 PM
Why can't she get a first serve in?

Excelscior

Lucky Lucky Lucky.

Though I though Petra should of went down the T on the Lucky Net Cord by Na.

Excelscior
Aug 14th, 2012, 12:01 AM
Ni La moving around on return, is throwing off Petra's serve it seems?

Good Fight Petra. Good Fight.

Just hold your first service game in set 2, and breeze through please, as Li Na tries to hit her way back in the match, after she loses patience.

Li Na's husband saved her last match she played Petra in Sydney. But that was after a great start, then decline by Petra. Hopefully Petra's getting better now.

Huge mental walkabout. We have a three-setter on our hands.

Excelscior

@Tennisaddict

Yeah, Petra wins the first set, then gets rolled.

And in the last match, Li Na was getting rolled in the first set, then her husband spoke to her and she went off. At the French, no husband, but Petra was up 3-0 in third set.

But Petra just needs to slow it down, and add some off speed stuff. She can still win this set.

If Petra would of held on her first serve, Ni La would of collapsed. No doubt.

She can still win this set (error Na). But her serving has been atrocious throughout this match. It needs to get better, if she plans to make the comeback in this set.

Excelscior
Aug 14th, 2012, 12:46 AM
Petra was swinging the racket well at the end of that second set. I hope she continues into the 3rd set, and doesn't have a repeat of the 2nd holding her first serve.

Now that Na has life, and her husbands coaching again (He's going to tell her "Petra is swinging the racket well again, and to make her run to check if she's tired/feeling the humidity"), she needs to be tough on her serve.

Petronius

I wonder how much she has left in the tank?

She's walking away. Maybe a bathroom break?

Petra started swinging the racket better at the end in that third set, so let's see what happens?

Her serve has been dodgy this match. Hopefully, she'll get it back together.

I think Petra forgets sometimes that Na, can be Error Na.

Excelscior
Aug 14th, 2012, 12:53 AM
Now let's see how Na handles the pressure, when Petra holds her serve?

That CC ROS backhand was close. SMH

Excelscior
Aug 14th, 2012, 12:56 AM
Petra gave Na too many errors. And she's gotta realize Na is a waiting error machine, if/when she feel the pressure.

Excelscior
Aug 14th, 2012, 01:00 AM
If Petra can just hold her serve, Li Na will have a lapse or give Petra an opportunity. Just hold Petra.

Petra claims she's "not feeling fresh", and she's down 4-1 now. How much work will she have to do, to win this match now? Petra's now down 5-1. SMH

Barthel is not even serving well, serving many 2nd serves, and Petra keeps flubbing these BP opportunities. She had her chances.

Petra's also not serving well herself with DF's, and too many 2nd serves.

She's also going for a lot, when she doesn't have to, being that Barthel can be an error machine. i know its' early, but Petra can play smarter. Barthel will make errors.

I understand this is her first match her, Barthel's second, and Petra may be adjusting to Cincinatti. But sometimes you also have to know how/when to slow the game down, until you adjust.

As an example, Serena played horribly yesterday, but still won in straight sets.

Barthel wins first set now, when Petra had her break chances to get even again. So We'll see how Petra handles it, now that she's given herself more work, set wise. And she's serving first.

Petra should of took advantages though, cause Mona wasn't even serving great for her standards, and Petra saw a bunch of 2nd serves she hit out.

She's playing better than at the start. So let's see how committed she is. From what I've seen so far, the game is definitely winnable for her.
