Re: Kaohsiung R1 Mandy Sexy Minella d. N.Osaka 6-2 7-6(4)

Agreed. From appearances it seemed she couldn't serve, the abdominal injury incurred at the AO still lingering. If that was the case, she shouldn't have played. Losing to Minella is an upset, for...

Re: Who will be the next slam winner as a teen?

Naomi Osaka..... If the draw falls right and Serena, Maria and Vika fall at some point, she'll have a good shot against the rest. Same for Bencic, btw...

Re: Would you ever refuse to play someone after so many defeats?

You should include Vika, for she's met Serena 20 times, as well, and the record is just as dismal, but better than Maria for Vika has prevailed 3 times. Doesn't seem like it, but it's true. If they...

Didn't realize there is half-time in tennis, both players take a break.

Re: Statistical people, any1 kno the record for most winners by a woman in a match?

Mona...65 winners versus Vika at Stuttgart '12. Highlights of that match still gives goosebumps, for her winners were jaw-dropping.

Re: AO R3 (14) Victoria 'unbeatable' Azarenka destroys (Q) Naomi Osaka 6-1 6-1

Well, this explains why her lst serve was so weak, for I've never seen her lst serve lacking pop as it was against Vika. Maybe, the injury affected her groundstrokes, as well. Nevertheless, it was...

Re: Naomi Osaka Not Worried About Victoria Azarenka

Naomi got her wish for the big court. She'll face Vika on 'Laver, 2nd match up after Garbine/Barbora. Hope the house is packed for such. Looking forward to it....

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 92

Bad performance from Sam' Crawford thus far. Down 2-5 and as wild as all get out. Groundstrokes are nowhere near the lines.

Re: AO R1 : Johanna Konta def (8) Venus Williams 6-4 6-2

Venus is "not hardly" withdrawing from Taiwan. She's going there to promote her clothing line, for she thinks the Asians love her after her success at Wuhan, Hong Kong and Zhuhai after the USO. So, a...

Re: Jon Wertheim seed report for Aus Open 2016, SF Serena - Aga, Azarenka - Venus !

Well, 9 of the 12 so-called "ESPN Experts" are picking Vika to win, no doubt fueled by Serena's knee problem, increased weight gain and lack of match play since September of last year, coupled with...

Re: AO QR2: Naomi Osaka d. (21) Alexandra Panova 62 76(4)

Well, Jarmila should have won the match in 2 sets, for she was up 6-3 in the 2nd set breaker. But, Naomi came back to tie by winning quality points, then finished. The 3rd set was tight throughout...

Re: AO QR2: Naomi Osaka d. (21) Alexandra Panova 62 76(4)

Good win for Naomi. Hope she wins tomorrow and doesn't get placed with Kvitova in the lst round or Jarmila Wolfe, tho' she bested her in Hobart in a tight 3-setter.

Re: WWW Australian Open

Agreed, but Maria, Petra K., Garbine and Madison haven't played a match either this year. My winner is Vika, due to her draw and the ill-preparedness and lack of match play for those mentioned.

Re: Brisbane 1R: Azarenka def. Vesnina 6-2, 6-0

From the highlights the match appeared to be closer than what the scoreline indicates. Vesnina was quite competitive, playing very well, belying such.
