Kuznetsova is so dangerous playing the way she is. Her skillset is crazy good so as long as she can keep her head she'll be very hard to stop.
"She brought a fresh approach. It's for that that people loved to see her play.It's for that too that I hated to play her, I dreaded her unpredictability. I had lots of problems to sort out. It was seriously gruelling, a constant battle of tactics. Her exit is a huge loss. It's not like we will find a new Mauresmo tomorrow" - Justine Henin on Amélie Mauresmos retirement
Happily surprised at Sveta playing some good tennis this year, was very sceptical she didn't have it in her any more. She didn't play a smart match though and totally threw the 2nd set away, but such is she just a miles better player she won despite this.
Woz competed well as she always does, but the match was always in Sveta's hands *rinse and repeat*
KUZZY Almost, I mean almost lost the plot but what saved her was her persistent trip to the net 20+ times winning 90% of points (GOAT) ....Wozzy hang in there but just too much GOATING from Kuzzy ...Kuzzy needs to clean her game tho for qtrs. Almost every Kuzzy game Wozzy had a break chance
as usual I was right from the beginning, Caro had that match on her racket and lost it funniest thing is that she was edged mentally by the end by the only player who used to be much worse on that than her.
the only two matches she had played reasonably well in the past year in majors she lost both of them, this one and against Paszek
The match was never in her racket. Her net skills was just horrible, she needs to be more confident there. She needs to learn how to hit a hard forehand by producing her own pace, she can't produce her own pace on that side. Some of the rallies she should have won if she just new how to finish the point with her forehand. If not i wish she learn hows to move to her backhand.
Can't believe she wins the match without any drama and stuff. Haven't seen Kuznetsova's game for ages, I was really impressed. The only thing I'm worried about is her movement and fitness. I really want Svetlana to come back to the top 10 ASAP and learn these mugs to play tennis. Good luck against Azarenka.
