That's the way she's playing now too. But I can't believe she's prepared that badly.

She can easily win this, as long as she starts playing with her head.
No, because you're making unfair judgements. You're acting like every shot she plays is intended that way. If she hits a shot straight to Marina's forehand volley so she can finish it off easily, that's not what she's trying to do unless she wants to lose. She's trying to hit a pass but she doesn't hit it well.

And you're not criticising the way she plays, you're bashing her over every error. Well that's tennis, get over it. She's human, she's going to make errors. You can get pissed off but it's going to keep happening in every match. It may be better to look at her game plan and say what you think she should do differently. And hitting to forehand or backhands is always a bit dubious, because you can hit to the backhand all you want but you have to hit the ball in the open forehand court at some point right?

And let's not forget the result of a match is decided by 2 players, not 1. If Erakovic had kept playing like shit Kiki would have won an hour ago. She doesn't have everything under her control.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Mark, first of all, it doesnt matter shit what we say here. If we'd be booing her in the stadium, you'd have a point. If we'd be her coach, maybe too. But this? Nah, irrelevant.
Secondly, I already criticized her in the first set, when she was winning. And last, but not least, it's not saying she sucks, but pointing at what is wrong/

MY LORD YES I just don't understand why Dutch people praise athletes when winning and instead of supporting them through tough times they trash talk them to shit and definitely contribute to a downward spiral. (Just look at Rus' losing streak 3 years ago)

That never helped no one

Re: Kiki Bertens

Just after you think she's finally foudn out, Kiki plays two balls to the forehand of Erakovic. Who finished both points nicely BTW.
Unbelievable
