View Full Version : How can somebody win a three setter by making only 2 winners

Thats possible. Anna Pistolesi d. Sybille Bammer 64 26 62 and had only 2 winners in the whole match. Match lasted more than 2h 30min.

The wall is really unbelievable but...

:baby: That's cruel... Pistolesi made 10 unforced errors from play in the whole match... :help: :armed:

I remember Widjaja wining against Kournikova at one of the Slams by making 1 winner in the whole match... but I know that's different :o

I think this stat is incorrect, I saw the match on tv, Pistolesi made more winners then two, she was at the net a couple of times, hit passing shots...

I saw it too and I can remember 2 real winners, one when Sybille was at the net and one forhand winner from Anna but also if there were 3 or 4 that isnt that impressive

Theres gotta be a drop shot or some net points or passing shots in there....that dusnt make sense.

I'm not surprised bearing in mind the way she plays.

The main thing is that she won though :).

omg Kart i love that Avatar :kiss: Gaby.

I remmember Hingis hitting only 7 winners against Serena in the Usopen final in 1999, i was impressed with that too.

Anna doesn't hit a lot of winners but she makes her opponent do a lot of errors and it's as important!

Thanks :) - thought you might ;).

Wow, Bammer had 26 direct winners..

Oct 22nd, 2003, 10:27 PM
Thats easy your name is Anna Pistolesi

How is a direct winner different from a regular winner?

That's not too surprising. When Anna played against Capriati in New Haven, she only hit about 6 or 7 winners over the course of 2 hours. When she played Serena she didn't even hit one. Her game is all about frustrating the other person. After watching her play a couple of matches this year, I'm convinced she is a better retriever and wall than Coetzer in her prime (just not at the Slams). Anna would have definitely been a top 5 player if she played like this 5 or 6 years ago.

Anna Pistolesi is a loopy non-agressive player, its not surprising.
