Re: Womens Tennis in General

Another SP survived, TB. I think Vinci has the best BH lob in the world!

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Vinci wins the 1st set tiebreak 10-8. I think Petrova had 2 or 3 set points in the tiebrek. The match is 1 hour 7 minutes.

I can't believe Vinci got away with getting only 36% of her 1st serves in.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Weird 1st set stat from the Petrova/Vinci match...Vinci faced a break point in only 1 of her 6 service games despite getting only 36% of her 1st serves in while Petrova faced break points in 3 of her 6 service games with 60% of her 1st serves in.

I don't really understand why so many people thought that this would be a close contest really. Everything pointed towards the Czechs as the likely winners. They have home advantage, they have the (by far) better doubles team and they have the better singles player. The best bet for the Serbs would have been Ana winning the first rubber and this somehow putting so much pressure on a Kvitova who is under the weather that she would implode against Jelena as a result of which the Serbs would get a 2-0 lead. Not an entirely impossible scenario, but going into it the Serbs needed a lot to go their way to win it.

I think that Serbia will be lucky to get a win here. Czechs are too strong for them to beat. JJ looks like she is done and Ana is playing better but she looks pretty tired from the whole season and physically she looks weak. I think they will give them at least run for their money but Czechs have it in the bag.

6-1 Petrova, a third set it is.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Vinci saves two BPs, 4-3 and still on serve. 2h20m played.

Edit: The SB clock is ahead of the court clock, which was probably stopped during the break before set 3.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Petrova wins 6-7(8), 6-1, 6-4 after more than 2½ hrs. The decisive difference was Vinci going 0/10 on BPs.
Caro - Petrova final at 5 pm CET tomorrow. I'm glad it's NP rather than a second match against Vinci, it should be the two highest ranked players contesting the title. But all things being equal, I consider Caro a pretty big favorite. Not only is she 4-1 H2H, NP has also played matches going the full distance the last three days. That can't help but leave a mark on a 30 yo, however strong she may be.
It's a little odd to wait for a match where Caro should be the better rested! How many times haven't we been worried about Caro's stamina late in a tournament where she has been grinding out one long win after another? Or a new tournament starting soon after a deep run in the previous one? Now for once the shoe is on the other foot!
