Re: USO 3R BOMBSHELL: [Q] Mirjana Halts [2] Simona's XWTA #1 Ambition 76 62

Indeed there's a reason why Mary Pierce was so successful..
anyone who wants to see what Lucic could do to the best as a teen, just needs to type Lucic Seles Wimbledon, or Lucic Graf wimbledon...

Re: USO 3R BOMBSHELL: [Q] Mirjana Halts [2] Simona's XWTA #1 Ambition 76 62

That 32 year old though is one of the potential top two players we never got to enjoy watching. She almost did the same thing to Graf once.
Today was like slipping back in a time machine 16...

Re: Are The Courts At Wimbledon Too Slippery?

If the weather has been very different, competent people might well have prepared the grass differently? According to Maria's opponent there was even cut grass left lying around on top which she...

Re: Are The Courts At Wimbledon Too Slippery?

Just moved courts/channels from watching Carolina lose because of a slip, to a male player having attention to his knee ,to Maria slipping for the second time as she loses the set. Obviously...

Re: Azarenka is really unpopular...

The press and commentary coverage wasn't good this AO. ES UK described Stephens as a club standard player and then proclaimed her as the next best thing since ever in the same match's commentary. It...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

http://tv.eurosport.co.uk/tvschedule.shtml

Even more strange. THE Eurosport UK TV schedule has WTA tennis - Brisbane QF 4/1 (assume its 2013 and not an old page) and Hopman Cup.

Re: How would THIS Serena fare against peak Graf?

Its a non comparison though. Peak Graf translated to 2012 wouldn't play like Graf 1990s. She would have 2012 technology and 2012 training techniques and would have a game that had developed to match...

Re: Which was Elena Dementieva's best chance to win a Slam?

You might add that Myskina knew how to play and beat her, out thought her more often than not, was faster and had the strategic and tactical game and belief to beat her. Myskina was top Russian for...

Re: McGill University Article: Women Tennis Suffering Due To No Dominant Players!!!

Thats a different issue, The problem was when you had one dominant player. Serena was a particular issue because she was also almost always going to win over Venus too and could win easily after...

Re: McGill University Article: Women Tennis Suffering Due To No Dominant Players!!!

You don't need a dominant player. You need a small group of recognisable players at the top of the game and tour , playing consistently well, with the ability to win GS. With one off winner's and...

Re: Who had more potential: Dementieva - Safina - Petrova - Kuznetsova - Myskina

Hardly. There havn't been many stronger fields since than the one Nastya and Elena got through. Just look at this year's GS line ups and the vanishing, absent and effectively unknown players...

Re: Who had more potential: Dementieva - Safina - Petrova - Kuznetsova - Myskina

Agree. At her best she was the naster of the other Russian girls and she was beginning to be very competitive with with Justine, Maria and Kim. Even allowing for the odd walkabout, she was good...

Re: What's better: Unbeatable # 1 or great spectrum of top players?

Thats not the choice. When Graf was around she had competition, in numbers and with people who could beat her for a time. We also had very tight matches when she played and beat some of them. Even...

Re: Nostalgia is nice but Graf's era has passed

Sorry but they sadly do. This generation have little idea of strategy or tactics, most have rarely played anyone who has much idea, the shot repertoire is minimal and their mental strength is such...

Re: Graf testing a new racket - video

She's having fun - but its a very high level of fun when she does have a former male number one to play her fun tennis with.......:)

Can someone persuade them to play mixed at any GS again?

Re: An age analysis of the players who would be seeded in a slam today

Not convinced there's any relationship. 2000 is a changing of the guard time - if you looked back into the nineties the top 10 is almost certainly older. The top 10 players of 1990 to 2000 certainly...

Re: Myskina & Likhovtseva to coach Fed Cup Team

On of those great what if questions we have been denied. Kim, Justine, Maria , all the russians bar Vera, and the sisters are all playing below the level they did in 2004 when Nastya was competitive...

Re: Myskina & Likhovtseva to coach Fed Cup Team

Myskina is one of the smartest players to play this century so you hope she can add some strategy and tactics to the Fed Cup. The interesting thing is who could benefit from being told how to...

Re: AO QF:Caro bts Fran 3-6,6-3,6-3

Something in there about timing too. I don't think there's anyone on tour can play in zone as much as Fran did for longer than she did. Fran was always going to have a dud game at some point early or...

Re: Bold Prediction: Schiavone will retire following the 2011 French Open

She won't leave mid year if she has a choice if Italy is in the Fed Cup. She's lived in London and she loves playing for Italy so the olympics is an obvious goal. She's got plenty of post RG points...

Re: Which round of a GS would Graf reach if she w as to return today?

Steffi even last year could outhit and outhink and out manouver Kim and even now Kim's game is very on and off. Kim is the best player on tour now when she is on and she's already got more speed,...

Re: Now Dementieva retired, Who's next?

I have an idea Patty may want to outlast the Williams sisters - the last player on tour to defeat Graf title is up for grabs. Fran, if she can stay fit, has the Fed Cup battle to keep her going ...

Re: Elena Dementieva: Greatest player to have never won a slam?

Difficult. MJF almost made it in 93 but she was up against Graf. Sukova didn't get so close. Elena might have made it against anyone else in 2004 - but Nastya, who was a bit faster and could get...

Re: Serena greater than Graf

Not sure of any Monica domination - F092 and AO93 are nerve wrackingly close - the dominating win is Steffi's at Wimbledon 92. Its all open to be fought for in 1993. The point about Steffi was that...
