Re: Womens Tennis in General

Sharapova holds for 6-4 3rd set at 40-15. Petrova led 2-0 3rd set 40-15 (2 gps)

Petrova's returning and ground game were poor after play resumed.

There's a good chance Petrova would have won this match without the rain delay but Petrova's brain makes it far from certain.

Hmm, I mention that I would like to see Petra win and a few hours later she loses. Did I also just guarantee an Errani win today?

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Recorded the Sharapova vs Petrova match and only just saw it.....

I must say, if I hear eurosport commentators hold a sermon one more time about tennis etiquette I think I'm going to explode. Give me Bradnam, Reed, Smith and Durie instead of these sissy cry babies. Not that they don't have their 'holier than thou' moments as well, but this new team (or temporary replacements for the USO) seems to be employed exclusively for the purpose of spoiling what would otherwise be great entertainment. If only my television set had a 'no commentary' option.

I like Sharapova and her in your face attitude. And if it bothered Petrova (which it probably did) that's a good thing from Maria's perspectve. This is professional sports goddamnit - not an innocent little game to round of a pleasant little gathering of friends in the club around the corner. Sharapova reminds me of why I loved Jimmy Connors so much while everyone else hated his guts. They care, they are intense and they would do anything to get a win because at the end of the day that's all that matters.

I don't mean to ruffle any feathers, but all I can say is that the more the 'tennis etiquette' people are on her case the more I root for her. Go Maria!!! What a competitor!

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Nope sorry, disagree. Sharapova was really going overboard with this yesterday, for every freaking point. Not cool.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Anyone know who else is appearing at the Hansol Korea Open this year? The information on the official site seems to be all about previous years. Usually this close to a tournament there is at least a current entry list posted.

A field full of players that Caro can randomly lose to.

Here's the top 50 players (from highest ranking to lowest) as far I could tell. I got this from the tournament forum:

Caro
Kirilenko
Kanepi
Petrova
Goerges
Pavlyuchenkova
Makarova
Medina Garrigues
Suarez Navarro

Here's some players outside the top 50:

Rybarikova
Bertens
Soler Espinosa
Dominguez Lino
Pervak
Rus
Cadantu

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Ah, thanks. I'm glad to see so many players that Caroline has lost to this year are going to be there. Assuming she is 100% healthy, which by then she really ought to be, she should have a chance to get some revenge on some of them.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

I kind of go back on forth on "unsportsmanlike behaviour" but ultimately I think I am for it (to a degree). It makes the matches a bit more exciting. Things would be a little boring if everyone was all nicey-nice all of the time.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Was Sharapova's loss to Caro at the US Open 2010 really a surprise? They were discussing Sharapova's US Open results after 2006 and Davenport called that loss a surprise. I'd say her 2007 (Aga), 2009 (Oudin), and 2011 (Flavia) losses were surprises.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

If you ask me, Sharapova's already using up her leeway for this kind of stuff with her grunting. Adding on top of that with those ridiculous antics is just too much, especially if she's playing a much lower-ranked player.

Pretty pathetic that she has to resort to such tactics to win a match against Petrova if you ask me...

Than you don't know me as well as I thought you did. People can disagree with me, and on this ussue I'm sure that most DO disagree with me, and I respect their opinion. But one thing I can't be accused of is changing my tune or having double standards depending on which players are involved.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Jinkies! I didn't see any of the match but a 6-0 set for Ana? Very nice. The second set looks much closer, she just broke to level it at 3-3.
