Catfina started a catfight on purpose. She was up 6:3 3:0 DOUBLE BREAK.

Her BH DTL was on from 1st point and never went off. She hit that shot at will especially on any point after 30:30.

Santangelo's FH was so hit and miss. Sometimes she would hit a brilliant winner and then miss easy shots to the open court on it. Safina needs to work on her DFs though, that is what got her into this tussle.

She needs to drastically improve to have a chance to medal this week.

Overexaggerating. She was pretty solid from the ground especially on the BH wing and as usual her FH isn't what won it for her, but it was pretty effective at times. She lost her 2nd of the two breaks of serve with two consecutive DFs. Both were ambitious and flashy attempts at 2nd serve slice aces. After that Santangelo started playing more confidently and her FH went in more. The result was never in question because off the ground Dinara was boss. She needs to kick her serve in more and stop being so ambitious, which is probably the result of her confidence being the hottest player on tour. She expects to make those 2nd serve aces right now. She made one I think and a host of first serve aces and most were slices to the deuce court. Just a lapse in concentration and going for too much in a few moments. Don't exaggerate.

I wasn't exaggerating at all. She couldn't realize that she just needed to keep the ball deep and high and Santangelo would be rendered useless. Against better players (Santangelo was probably the easiest 1R match up for grabs) she is going to need to play much smarter and serve much better. The only good thing about this match was her attitude. She got very fired up and proved that she really wants an Olympic medal to add to her impressive collection of titles this year. I don't really see why you felt a need to personally attack my post but whatever.

back.
