Re: USO Final : [9] Sam Stosur def. [28] Serena Williams 62 63

As Boris Becker put it, this shows we know nothing about tennis.

Woke up this morning, thinking it would be a beatdown, but watched anyway for some reason. Was really worried when Serena had the...

Nah - they always bleep it out when the player says where they are going. I guess it's so people who watch the videos can't stalk the players or whatever.

Re: Is Sam the favourite for the French now?

Sam and Fran will be in the mix for sure, but I think RG will be the most Open of the slams this year, with no clear favourite. Sveta may be also be a threat because the clay suits her game....

Re: AO Final: Kim Clijsters def. Na Li 3-6 6-3 6-3

They dont give a shit about Serena or Justine, I doubt anyone honestly believes Kim's current level of achievement is even in that sort of league. But people (myself included) are getting pretty sick...

Re: AO Final: Kim Clijsters def. Na Li 3-6 6-3 6-3

Court was too fast, which was in favour of Clijsters, who won because of her defending?

Re: AO Final: Kim Clijsters def. Na Li 3-6 6-3 6-3

Really clean first set from Na Li, probably as well as she's hit the ball since the Azarenka match, Kim was pretty much on the defence the whole time, which is very rare for her.

Kim changed it up...

Re: AO F: (1) Dulketta d. (12) Vikkiri 26 75 61

That's very true, there wasn't nearly enough communication between the two when things started to go wrong. Probably comes from lack of experience playing together.

But the difference is that...

Re: Wozniacki in Murray's Box

Caroline mentioned to Jim she was watching to learn, which makes sense. If anything I'm surprised this sort of thing doesn't happen more. I feel too many players live in a bubble and only watch...

Re: AO F: (1) Dulketta d. (12) Vikkiri 26 75 61

Vika was definitely the best player on the court for half the match. And even after that, although her level dropped, it wasn't her play that let the team down.

I think the issue most people are...

Re: AO F: (1) Dulketta d. (12) Vikkiri 26 75 61

She was talking about how close they were and how Gisela's engaged to a soccer player, and Flavia is going to be her witness. She then mentioned that they had had interesting (can't remember the...

Yep, it's pretty bad. I know Nine haven't renewed their rights to Wimbledon, but I'm hopeful that One HD will take up coverage of the world's most famous Tennis event. Not sure about the US Open, but...

Re: Oracene hates Clijsters

She doesn't have to, I just think it's inappropriate. Like if I started a thread titled "The Dawntreader is a dick" and just left it at that. Seems unnecessarily rude unless I give a good reason for...

This is so random coming from Oracene of all people. But if she doesn't give an explanation/justification for airing such a negative view of Kim on such a public forum, then they can only be viewed...

Re: AO F: (1) Dulketta d. (12) Vikkiri 26 75 61

Interesting match, with Flavia and Gisela being very solid throughout, and Vika and Maria having a bit more firepower, but also being more erratic. Vika was definitely the dominant player for the...

Re: Seriously, who's not sick of Kim winning slams because of default

"Can't wait"? I'm pretty sure this shit is happenning already.

I only just started posting here again after a long break from GM. I can't believe how badly the level of intelligence on this board...

Re: Seriously, who's not sick of Kim winning slams because of default

OK, so people hate the fact that Clijsters is dominating a bunch of scrubs, but people also don't seem want players like Wozniacki and Zvonareva stepping up to win slams. Why does anyone even watch...

Re: AO SF : (3) Kim Clijsters def. (2) Vera Zvonareva, 6-3 , 6-3

Best match Kim's played this Aus Open, cut down on all the errors from her QF. I think at these later stages of the tournament Kim is gaining confidence from the fact that she has more experience and...

Re: AO SF: [9] NaNa Li Makes History, Saves MP, Sends WTA #1 Caro Packing 36 75 63

Caroline probably played her best possible tennis for the first 1.5 sets and played with some aggression I didn't think she had, but reverted back to type at match point. I did feel the match was...

Re: AO QF: Clijsters def. Radwanska 6-3 7-6(4)

That was a really ugly match from Kim. Would go 5 games hitting the ball really cleanly, then suddenly spray the ball all over the place for the next 5. And a lot of her errors were on big points...

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

Caroline stepped up her game in the 2nd and 3rd sets, but I still feel that Fran wins this if she weren't so exhausted. In the last two sets she hit an absurd amount of dropshots and pulled the...

Re: NYT analysis: How Wozniacki keeps winning

I mean "respect" in the way all people should be respected. People don't have to shower her with praise for winning, but the fact is that she is good at what she does and that people feel the need to...

Re: AO R4: (25) Kvitova d. (22) Pennetta 36 63 63

I'm loving this AO with all these newer sort of players coming through (especially since I've lost Elena). I really like Petra, hope she continues to do well.

Her bark is really bizarre though....

Re: NYT analysis: How Wozniacki keeps winning

I've always felt it's the other way around. Players who hit through the ball more can learn better shot selection as they mature. The problem with players who are less aggressive is that it will...

Re: AO R4: [9] Na li def. [8] Victoria Azarenka 6-3 6-3

That was probably the most impressive performance of the tournament so far imo. It wasn't like Na was playing off her nut, it was just really clean hitting. She was hitting 10km faster than Vika off...
