Re: 2016 Wimbledon F: Serena df Kerber 75 63

What a match, great tennis, very few unforced errors. The couple that Angie did make gave Serena the match at crucial moments at the end of both sets.
Serena's serve is just poetry in motion. So...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 97

Wow, what a poor match! Vika can't serve and is making so many errors yet still a few less than Sveta. Most points being lost rather than won... Shame, after a couple of high class Vika performances....

Re: Miami SF: Azarenka def. Kerber 62 75

What a great match! Vika and Angie have had some tight tussles - that USO classic comes to mind - but obviously Vika usually comes out on top, which was why the Aussie Open win was so crucial for...

Re: Indian Wells R4: Peak P3tra def. Nicole Gibbs 4-6 6-3 6-4

Only caught the very end of this but despite making hard work of putting away these lower ranked players, winning tough matches this week has to be better than losing early!!! Petra has always done...

Re: Indianwells R3: Kvitova def Larsson 6-3 4-6 7-5

A win is a win! Petra showed class from 3-5 down in the final set, her experience getting her through when she was looking pretty tired. I bet she was also very determined to actually win 2 games in...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 96

Petra's concentration is awful! Played well to 5-2 and thought she had the 1st set til Hawkeyes. Scraped the set and has been shitty in set 2!! No idea if she can pull it out., ****sighs****

Re: Indian Wells 3R: Sorceress (3) Radwańska vanquishes (32) Niculescu 6-2, 6-1

What a brilliantly entertaining match! So many outrageous shots from Aga but Monica was too inconsistent. A lot of fun though :)

Re: IW R2: [8] Petra KVITOVA def Danka KOVINIC 6-3, 4-6, 7-6

Not had the chance to watch many of Petra's matches for a while - as she keeps losing so not making it to the televised ones! As a fan I am pretty worried since the split with David. Ok so pretty...

Re: Indian Wells R2 Monica Niculescu def. Heather Watson: 6-4, 2-6, 6-2

Only saw set 2 and start of the second - so I saw pretty much all Heather dominating Monica and her weird forehand! Watson has a nice game but clearly lost focus/ energy badly.

Harsh! Vesnina wasn't that bad today IMO but Barbora played a great match.

Re: Baffled as to why Sveta wasn't played at all in the Fed Cup final

Didn't they have to name their team of 4 BEFORE the start? What was Makarova's singles/double ranking? Better than Sveta's?

I'm not sure she would have been a singles choice over Pavs - who played...

Re: Is Kvitova - Sharapova best rivalry among current TOP players?

I'd agree, they are closely matched although it is 7-4 to Maria after today but the two matches they have played at the WTA finals and here today were great contests.

Re: Fed Cup FINAL [CZE 1-2 RUS]: Maria Sharapova def. Petra Kvitova 3-6 6-4 6-2

Really enjoyed this match, even though I wanted Petra to win. She came out on fire and really should have finished it off in 2. Maria did not play badly in those first 2 sets and showed her class by...

Re: 2015 YEC F: La Profesora AGAcadabra def. Petra Kvitová 6-2, 4-6, 6-3

Petra's press conference????

Saw some mentions of a fun press conference with Petra Kvitova where she seems to have returned to the fruits metaphors!!

Can anyone provide a link, I've done a web search but can't find it.

Re: Singapore SF: Kvitova def Sharapova 6:3 7:6(3)

Yes, Sven's attempts to pump Maria up were interesting, and his loud clapping contrasted with Kotyza's usual laid back grin :D:D:D

Let's be honest, Maria was playing above expectations after so...

Re: Singapore SF: Kvitova def Sharapova 6:3 7:6(3)

I'm a huge Petra fan but I didn't think she would win this based on her form this week (average) and Maria's (very sharp) however, the joys of the WTA and how unpredictable the game is! This was...

Re: YEC SF: (5) Aga Radwańska def. (2) Garbiñe Muguruza 6-7, 6-3, 7-5

Surprising result, but Aga is such an unpredictable player. Must admit, I've never got the love she seems to get from fans as she often looks bored and disinterested on court. Wasn't a fan of her...

Flavia really should have won that first set. She was playing well and looked solid. However, she gifted Maria the break back and Maria sensed her chance and took it ruthlessly! Shame for Flavia, I'd...

Re: WWW Singapore YEC RR : (2) Muguruza vs (4) Kvitova ?

I think this result hangs on Petra's health. She looked pretty delicate today - the mono and also a stomach upset that had her knocking back Coke. If she is below par in how she feels, Mugaruza hits...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 90

Good to see Maria playing so well. Halep's not got the big shots to hurt her and Maria is looking especially focussed today.
