Re: WWW US Open QF: [9]Venus Williams vs [13]Petra Kvitova

Depends (AS ALWAYS!!!) how Venus serves. Then again, she served incredibly in their last match and still lost so who knows how much credibility that theory has.

I actually think Venus is a slight...

Re: World No 1 is engaged - no thead-nobody cares..

Pliskova is a new, even worse kind of faceless nobody. At least Safina had a popular and entertaining brother.

Sorry, I completely misread this.

Re: Wimbledon R3: Wozniacki def Kontaveit 36 76 62

Terrible letdown from Kontaveit. Was comfortably pummelling Wozniacki in even the longer baseline rallies for a set and a half, then suddenly crapped her pants and started spilling errors at random....

Re: JWertheim Wimbledon'17:KaPliskova def. Kvitova, Kerber&Ostapenko in SFs

This. People make a habit on here acting as if Wertheim's predictions are completely incredulous, but considering what has transpired over the last 18 months, it's not like anything can be read as...

Re: Eastbourne FQR: Lara Arruabarrana def. Pironkova 3-6 6-2 6-2

Yes, that first serve really was the nucleus of her entire grass court success back then. But it was really noticeable how vulnerable and almost pedestrian her game looks without it last year when...

Re: Mentally toughest players, WTA history

Serena's mental prowess in the biggest matches of her career is obviously well documented, particularly in the Serena Slam period where no one was touching her competitively. I mean she basically...

Re: Players with balanced forehand and backhand?

Henin? Her forehand was her most consistently aggressive shot, but it could break down even when she was playing well. Much like Venus, could hit with equal racquet-head speed on both sides but not...

Re: Error 404: Point construction not found.

I honestly think girls aren't being taught the fundamentals anymore. Everything is either centred around immense physicality or overt brute strength.

I mean when Seles started out, her dad used to...

Kournikova's career getting curtailed so abruptly was really unfortunate, especially since she looked liked she was gradually getting her career together again in the latter half of 2002. Although...

Re: Most Entertaining lopsisded GS Final?

I don't think anything has come close to the spectacle that Serena put on in a Slam final against Pova at the AO '07. A highlight reel extravaganza.

Another one for me was Graf vs Seles in the '92...

Re: Players you thought were gonna make it big and then they didn't?

Cepelova has one of the worst FH's this side of Dushevina so I wasn't surprised that she hasn't made it big.

I remember thinking Sprem had the potential to be a top 10 player when I first saw her...

Re: The best footwork in the Open Era

Is this even a contest? Graf probably had the best footwork of all time. I'd put Sanchez-Vicario, Evert and Hingis behind her.

And sadly that can't always be guaranteed for the future..

Women's tennis is in such trouble now, and draws and results this week just prove it. I don't know how American sports broadcasts for...

Re: Charleston QF: Ostapenko drags (5) Wozniacki 6-2 6-4

Ostapenko's ground game is clean and compact with a kind of magnetic pull to the centre of the racquet, but her serve is still a bit powder-puffish and I can't help feeling that her tennis was...

Re: Miami 4R: Venus Williams def. Kuznetsova 6-3 7-6 (Saves 2 SPs)

Venus's brand of physical, yet flashy tennis just does not date. Very good depth throughout, second serve was about as aggressive as she can hit it, and she was varying the play nicely with those...

Re: Worst RG final in recent years?

2004 was obviously the nadir of all RG finals. Dementieva crapping her pants on one of the biggest stages and the whole atmosphere and outcome was depressing as it gets.

People forget how awful...

Re: Why is Venus so troubled by Vesnina?

Venus in that 2012 Wimbledon match was obviously not healthy... only an idiot would refute that. But luckily you're the perfect candidate as always.

Re: Why is Venus so troubled by Vesnina?

Well in at least two of them Venus was not in good health/injured. Plus Vesnina has the sort of C-list power game that can capitalise on a crappy Venus day.

I mean Venus could barely serve in that...
