Re: 2011 US Open Series - stumbling towards US Open

Curcubeu comments about Schiavone Dulgheru match :

Alexandra seems to be as rusty as an armor from King Edward times...

and her stamina hit rock bottom!

She better draws Doi or Lepchenko now!

More than one win isn't possible, anyway...

I guess she is already planning for the next year to whore over some clay MMs!

Yeah, Lepchenko loves long rallies and Alex can't put any first serve in, if her match is longer than hour

And let's hope now for Ammanmuradova or Doi in Round 1 of the US Open. The girl had enough bad luck this year!

Re: 2011 US Open Series - stumbling towards US Open

Rybarikova is the better option at R3 (eventhough she lost the ITF final on clay to her) - Safarova is Petra's good friend & fellow leftie : it will be an ugly match for Petra to play (a leftie & friend) & for fans to watch

yep, Petra/Lucie R3 would be too much for me, she's played Kookie this year multiple times already in R1/R2

Re: 2011 US Open Series - stumbling towards US Open

Petra has problems playing against friends. In Paris indoors and in Indian Wells against Zahlavova-Strycova was really struggling.

Re: 2011 US Open - Petra ain't no 1 slam wonder!

I just noticed that it says "Love means nothing" on Rogers Cup frontpage, and for US Open, it says (as always) "It must be Love"

Good luck, Petra

My guess is, At the US Open (and after struggling at earlier events), Petra will have no problems taking care of business if she faces Lucie (at least I hope-Gulp Gulp). Lol.

Re: 2011 US Open - Petra ain't no 1 slam wonder!

I think she has an easy going draw to "comfortably" make the 1/4 - at least she didn't get Serena in the 3rd. round like a certain top player in the draw.

Any ways seriously some good matches to get some rhythm and the t°C to ebullition.

Re: 2011 US Open - Petra ain't no 1 slam wonder!

I think the draw is so favorable that Petra might have hard time playing in the show courts.
I hope USO has more sense than Toronto/Cincy.
Louis Armstrong or the grandstand court will be fine with me.

Funny/Good points. Lol.

At least we should get a stream though with 7 TV courts.

We'll know early, whether or not Peta's A game and attitude has shown up from her first match, from her ability to hold serve easily, and break the opponent (with out flip flopping serves). She couldn't' even do that in Cincy or Toronto with her first round opponents.

If she's playing well, and make's it that far (1/4 final), then I'm sure Masha and many of her fans will be shitting bricks in their already wet, quivering pants/garments. Lol.

Re: 2011 US Open - Petra ain't no 1 slam wonder!

Arthur Ashe, Louis Armstrong, Grandstand and Court 17 (seating 2,500) are all sizable courts with good amenities. Petra will have decent court assignments no matter what.

A Petra/Maria QF will be the match of the tournament and will be a feature Arthur Ashe night match.

Re: 2011 US Open - Petra ain't no 1 slam wonder!

I've looked at the draw, and I think Petra could very well make the final. She just has to play her way into the tournament, and then beat Pova in the quarters. Of course, Maria will be out for revenge, but if Petra brings her Wimbledon game, she should win again. The only players I'm really worried about are Zvonareva (whom I also wouldn't mind seeing win the whole thing, she's such a Novotna type) and the frightful odd French girl, who has seemed to have Petra's number. But she can't meet them until the semis, and I rather doubt either of them will make it that far.

Re: 2011 US Open Series - stumbling towards US Open

Not complaining or anything,but I really couldn't argue with Corswandt if she said that it was cluttering the subforum to have a USO Series thread AND a specific USO thread....Still,I'm somewhat glad that Petra has generated such an outpouring of meandering,loyal support

On to the handicapping,there really don't seem to be too many of what you'd call STRONG favorites for whom you could say,'Yeah,it wouldn't surprise me one bit if she won.'---There are a few players who have decent,reasonable shots but if you looked at Cincy winner Masha,for example,I don't think you could truly say that she had taken her game to a high,GS-winning level...it's more a case where she's simply a much more solid choice than most other gals.I'm approaching things from a biased perspective,of course,when I argue that a lack of top-level GOATs(only Serena has reached that HC zone so far) opens the door wider for Petra if she finds her rhythm in the earlier,easier rounds
