Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Beyond her I fear but she has earned $1.9m to date so life is not too bad in the top 60.

The top 20 seems so far away for me...Can she do it?yes but a lot of work to be done.

I don't think Heather is lacking time on the practice court though.. I mean it was a big ask trying to beat Kuznetsova, it's not like she lost to some random scrub. I think Heather needs to be given a break here. It would be nice to see her in the second week of a slam at some point this year though...

nijoco 1 & 3 to Sveta. Heather played well and it's concerning that even playing well, she barely a top 50 player. Something is missing in her game

I don't think so wow Hev only hit one more unforced error (35 to Gibbs 34) yet with a difference of 32 winners! Looks like Hev's aggressive game is really coming along...

Gibbs didn't seem to handle the delay yesterday and took a while to get back into the swing of things.

Good win and it will be a great experience playing my fav Sveta in round 2!
She actually played better than yesterday. In one game she hit four winners in a row. Her net game was also working very well which I think makes a big difference to Hev.

I swear Hev always gets tough second or third rounds in Grand Slams... Anyway hopefully she can give Sveta a good match.

Nicole probably doesn't know that Heather is very wound up with this Olympics cut off looming over her if she loses here.

Doubles will be interesting. I'm presuming the partnership is down to them both being sponsored by New Balance.
Every time I watch Giggs her attitude sucks. She was awful yesterday.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Heather has all but guaranteed her Olympic place now. That is great as she really didn't look like she was gonna do it a few months ago. I still don't get how she can play so well then so badly for long periods.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Yes Heather!!!

She played the first set back, exactly right, keeping up the pressure but also keeping the margin for error wide. Then midway through she just found her game. Played very aggressive with a lot of winners and some fantastic volleys and overheads to finish off the rallies. The overhead she hit to close out the match was great!

Gibbs looked pissed and threw her racket to the ground. The handshake wasn't that great either..doubles is going to be awkward...

But on the plus side, Hev is going to Rio!!!

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

What a change from yesterday. After repeated pathetically weak volleys & overheads yesterday, Heather demolished Gibbs with a string of overhead smashes that would do credit to a badminton player.

Mr.Sparkle Come on Troicki!
May 23rd, 2016 11:35 AM
Mr.Sparkle Looks like Hev will be back on court 3 after Troicki and Dimitrov. That match is going to be tight, could well go to five sets.

What a point to finish on yesterday though. Whoever wins the next point could sway the outcome of the whole match... So nervous for Hev...
