Re: WTA should promote Kristyna Pliskova

She does it all the time :lol:

She's absolutely sure it's only a matter of time when Kris joins her as a top player and they'll be playing lots of doubles together. I actually agree BTW :)

Re: Navratilova is the real GOAT

The only reason why Serena is now in the GOAT debate is that she has lately vultured about 8 slams past 30 years of age in a ridiculously weak era, made even weaker by the introduction of the age...

Re: Navratilova is the real GOAT

It was not meant as an excuse, it was meant as a response to the other poster's statement about Navratilova's slow start :secret:

If Martina started dominating even earlier, Serena's combined...

Re: Navratilova is the real GOAT

I guess singles-slam-centric fans should write a letter to Serena if she would be that kind and returned all the prize money from non-slam events (Miami, Madrid, YEC, Rome, Toronto, Cincinnati...)...

Re: Navratilova is the real GOAT

Ever heard of the fact that early in her career this woman had to deal with the issues of leaving her country of origin and settling down in a completely new country, region, culture, etc., which may...

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Halep def. Kvitova 6-4 3-6 6-3 (2-1 ROMANIA)

They were trumpeting an awesome piece by Italy's Guiseppe Verdi from Aida. As an Italian you should feel more positive about the Czech team and their fans ;)

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Karolina Pliskova leads Czech to 3-2 win over Romania

She was amazing.

If she keeps on improving and both Lucie & Petra get back into top shape, the semifinal with the Swiss could be a cracker:devil:

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 94

Our girls are dominating, a few points away at 6-2, 5-3.

It's really tough to beat them in Fed Cup, even when Petra is out of shape.

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Pliskova def. Nicolescu 6:4 4:6 6:3 (CZE: ROM 2:2)

Great great fight and performance by Monica Niculescu before her home crowd, but Karolina was again excellent :yeah:

Karolina could have won in straights, as she was up 4-2 in the second and was...

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Halep def. Kvitova 6-4 3-6 6-3 (2-1 ROMANIA)

She looked very disappointed, said 'it was only about a few points', probably talking about that last set, when she was one break up.

She actually struggled to talk about the match, looked...

Karolina in the last few games like a fucking boss :drool:

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Halep def. Kvitova 6-4 3-6 6-3 (2-1 ROMANIA)

It's a shame she failed to reach that 2014 Wimbledon final, Petra would have murdered her and the H2H wouldn't be that lopsided :grin2:

On this slow surface where Simona pushes everything back,...

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Halep def. Kvitova 6-4 3-6 6-3 (2-1 ROMANIA)

NID, but good fight by Petra in this form and on this surface :hug:

Considering the H2H between Monica Niculescu and Karolina Pliskova, Romania's chances are actually quite good right now.

Re: Sunday battle of current TOP 10 scrubs: Petra vs Simona?

Yes, judging by today's matches, Halep has this in the bag. She didn't play that bad, but Karolina was just excellent.

But you'll never know with Petra, she can pull a random goat display like she...

Re: Fed Cup: Niculescu def. Kvitová 6-3, 6-4
