Re: Marina Erakovic Cheering Thread

I must have accidentally unsubbed from this thread!!

@New_balls_please she and Aranxta make an awesome team and personally I thought Arantxa a fair bit of the heavy lifting in R2 bar the burst of dfs. Such a pity they couldn't complete the comeback in the TB

Great photos Spencer! It was a close match, at least you got to see Marina during USO I'll return the favor at AO, hopefully she is MD by then.

Yes I did! I was not able to film it though.

I was standing right in line with the baseline, right as the ball was not called out. It was very close, and to me I could not tell, but I was leaning more with it being out. Many other people questioned the no-call. APS promptly freaked out

She slammed her racket down and screamed "NO" really loudly and they argued for around 2-3 minutes.

They did well to save 4 MPs and could've saved 5 but Marina didn't put an overhead/volley away and APS ending up dumping a BH into the net.

Marina and Arantxa beat Krunic/Mitu 2-6 6-2 6-0 and have advanced to the 2R in doubles I am very pleased with this result

I really like how nice Marina is to Arantxa ALL THE TIME. It's hard not to love Marina!

Hi guys!

I watched Marina's FQR match in Roehampton yesterday! It was great to see her get the win. I have to say the conditions weren't great, the wind was swirling and the grass looked sodden from the thunderstorms the previous two days!

In terms of the match itself I felt like Marina was playing very conservatively. She stuck to the base line the whole match and didn't really go for too much with her shots. She did a lot of slicing which sometimes came up short and Khromacheva punished them. I felt like the difference between the two was Marina's experience. You could tell she was very determined and took her opportunities to break and in the tiebreak too.

There were a couple of memorable moments in the match. Her first set point up 6-3 in the tiebreak Khromacheva looked to have hit her shot out but it wasn't called and Marina was super pissed! I was glad she managed to compose herself after that.

The second more interesting moment happened I think mid way through the second set at 30 - 40 on Khromacheva's serve. They were really getting into a hard fought rally when a ball from another court managed to make its way through the netting on to their court. They stopped play but then the umpire was going to award the point to Khromacheva for some bizarre reason. Marina was naturally furious and said she had called let when she saw the ball roll on to the court.
I still can't quite work out what the umpire was saying because apparently Marina's shot was in so it shouldn't have mattered. Her coach then got involved and started arguing with the umpire too . In the end I he awarded the let and they replayed the point.

I think this must have motivated her because she seemed much more focused than Khromacheva and pulled out some big serves in the penultimate game to consolidate her lead. She was so happy at the end, she threw her racket in the air and did a goofy dance so you could tell how much it means to her to be back in the main draw.

She also had an animated discussion with the umpire at the end which must have been over the earlier drama. I was thinking don't mess with Marina today

Excellent draw for both. Gasparyan is maybe injured? Haven't heard her name in a while. Allertova is inexperienced on grass. Falconi just lost 60 60 to Kontaveit in Eastbourne QR1.

CSN is scary. Her draws break down a lot so she consistently is making Rd 16 and QFs of Slams before flopping easily

Then again JJ will have to beat Voegele which is never guaranteed. She'll randomly peak I am 100% sure of it.

We definitely are her only stans. Where is @kittyking ???
I'm just gonna say, if I had to choose one person to sacrifice for the rest of the human race, it's gonna be the "KMAANNNN LOOORAAA" guy The most infuriating thing was he yelled *right* after the point ended so you could always hear him Brit crowd was disgusting, truly believe Marina would have won in a friendlier environment, or if she had played Duque-Marino instead.

But yeah, fantastic draw for the both of them. Margarita is in bad form and under injury cloud - I threw her name in because she has a good serve and there is simply not many strong players in the section.

I think JJ will beat Stefi (Servebot-Pusher >>> Streaky Pironkova wannabe), and Marina will beat Falconi, then their match is a true toss up. The winner of that could definitely make R4 - CSN is decent on grass, but she's not even that good in slams, just shits her way through broken draws. Her mentality is honestly pretty weak (though she actually fought hard in Birmingham for once) and I think if she gets down on grass, she'll lose quickly, like with Ostapenko last year.

So winner of Marina v JJ (pls happen, pls ) is a good draw to make R4. But countless times has Marina had a workable draw like this and flopped, so its all up to her.

I did channel the spirit of Peak Qualifying Marina tho and win my tennis league grand final

Hope Kitty comes back. NZ Tennis fan hasn't popped in since Rabat either. Mana too.

R3 is almost certainly between the two of them. Then CSN on grass or Gasparyan for R4. It's a very workable draw.

@Spencer. I feel like we are her only stans anymore
