Re: Kerber & Radwanska have qualified for WTA finals

That seems like the most plausible answer. Of course, what's amusing is that "The player with the fewest number of Tournaments in a 52-week period (including any Mandatory Tournaments, if the player...

Re: Beijing R1: Svitolina d. Putintseva 75 62. Also, drama.

LOL. These two really don't like each other, do they? :lol: Anybody got any idea why?

Re: Some notes on the top 30 (or so)

While I agree with what you say about her reactive mindset I also think there might be physical/technical limits to her offensive capabilities. She struggles to produce consistent depth and/or pace...

Re: USO R2: Konta def #9 MUGuruza 7-6, 6-7, 6-2

Re: USO:R1: Madison Brengle prunes Golden Flower Sai Sai Goat! 6/2 5/7 7/5!

I'd say Saisai's moonballing was rather effective for the most part. If all you have is junk why not use it? ;)
She really needs better fitness to play her kind of game, though. Played a clever...

Re: Toronto F: Bencic def. Halep 76(5) 67(4) 30 ret.

I don't see that Bencic choked, really.
Halep mobilised her last reserves to play her best tennis at the end of the second set. She totally deserved winning it.
Of course, that also meant that she...

Re: Istanbul SF: Ula Radwańska def. Magdalena Rybariková 6-3, 4-6, 6-3

Kind of erratic overall, but with enough moments of brilliance to make it worthwhile. :)

Kudos to Ula for stepping it up when the match hung in the balance. After she miffed that easy volley on...

Re: Istanbul R2: M. Rybarikova double bagels LOCAL girl I. Soylu (60 60)

Great artists rely on the muses to inspire them. And the muses are a fickle bunch. ;)

Too bad Magda couldn't snatch that first set. See you in the US! :hug:

Re: Nottingham R2 Monica Niculescu saved 5 MPs def (Q) Olga Govortsova 2-6 7-5 7-5

Hey, Monica missed 2 MPs and still won... ;)

Not a good match from Monica, really, apart from the second half of the second set, but she keeps the win streak alive! :cheer:

Kudos to Govortsova...

Re: RG R4 (19) Elina '6 MPs' Svitolina made 1st GS QF def (29) Alize Cornet 6-2 7-6(9

I think the exact opposite. Yes, she got a bit passive towards the end of the second set, though Alizé also just wouldn't miss on the big points.
But Elina never faltered. Three times she failed to...

Re: French Open R2: (19) Svitolina outlasts Putintseva 1-6 7-5 9-7 in 3 hours 1 minut

She made noises, because she tried to put everything she had into those shots on the big points. The match was mentally and physically taxing, it was do-or-die, so noises came out of her mouth,...

Re: French Open R2: (19) Svitolina outlasts Putintseva 1-6 7-5 9-7 in 3 hours 1 minut

Only watched the second half of the third set, but that was epic.
Well done getting out of there alive, Elina! She's a tough cookie! :cheer:

And I, for one, hope Yellin' Yulia sticks around for...

Re: Razzano does underhand serve twice vs Cepede Royg, fails at both

Hitting a good underhand serve is probably not much easier than hitting a good dropshot. And just as with the dropper you risk an easy putaway for your opponent if you don't do it right. There's...

Re: Signature shots

Yeah, I find that one more iconic for her than the dropshot.

The player I most associate with droppers is Alizé, specifically the FH variety.

Re: ROME QF Gavrilova def. McHale 6-3 6-4

Impressive how Gavrilova hung on in the end. She was visibly running out of gas, but somehow clawed her way over the finish line. Allez! ;)

Re: Rome R2: Venus def Svitolina 6-4 6-3

This was as frustrating as the Ana match the other day, really. :banghead:
Elina blinked once in the first set and since she couldn't find a counter to Venus' serves that was that. Then in the...

Re: KUZNETSOVA: People don't have a right to judge sharapova without knowing her

Re: Madrid R2: (7) Ana Ivanovic def. Elina Svitolina 6-3 6-4

Man, that second set was frustrating for an Elina fan. She was fighting like mad, but every time she was about to grab some momentum she let her focus slip, or Ana came up with some crazy FH on the...

Re: Fedcup WG SF Team RUS def Team GER 3-2. Pav/Vesnina def Petkovic/Lisicki 6-2 6-3

Really impressed by Vesnina's attitude. She went out there taking the match by its horns and pulling it in the direction she wanted. Pulled Pavs along nicely, too, who shone in the second set when...

This was a really good match in the see-saw first set, and then it gradually turned into Thunderdome. :lol:
Flipper the one left standing in the end, but I doubt she'll have much left for the next...
