Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I'm glad that Woz is still in it. Sounds like nothing special at this stage, but it hasn't been often these last couple of years that I've been able to say that after the first two rounds of a major. I'm a bit worried about that Giorgi chick she's supposed to play in the next round though. I don't think I've seen her play before but from what I hear she's a BB. I'm always worried about those when it comes to Caroline. If she paints the lines my girl could be in trouble. But if she starts playing baseball it could be a piece of cake. You just never know with those types.

My faves - Woz, Federer, Li, Aga - the're all still in it. So far so good. I miss Maria though.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Nah I really think Caro's good for a deep run! Giorgi's the kind of ball basher who Caro can completely neutralise. I think Caro's playing well at the moment, and seems to be in good form. I think she can make the semis.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Camila best women's match I've seen in a long time in person. It was stunning how she maintained such a high level throughout the entire match. Really should've won that first set, but just flopped at 4-4. Some of her shots were just phenomenal, Caroline couldn't do anything at all about it but hope Giorgi missed.

And Martina taking a giant poo on Karolina throughout the entire commentary

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

For goodness' sake Caro. I back you for a big run for the first time in about 2 years, go to bed when you're a set up, and you lose!

In Caro's defense (lawd help me) I thought she actually played pretty well, gave it her all, but Camila just played lights out from beginning to end. Caroline got so many balls back, but (shockingly), she was just too passive. She hit some PEAK moonballs to stay in points , but Camila would often hit them out of the air for winners .

Camila earned herself a new fan in me last night

I don't want to ruin your new fanship, but there is (or was) something like the Caro curse. Those that beat her always ended up losing their next match. This hasn't been the case for Caro's last two tournaments, but for a very long series of tournaments beating Woz meant losing your next match.

Yes, I think that Woz tried very hard, but she just can't do it anymore. That forehand has really become too much of a liability. It's a worse stroke than it's ever been. But I better stop because I can see that you're already having enough fun as it is.

I will add that Giorgi did indeed play very well though. After she lost the first set I thought, "ok, second set 6-1 for Woz" because that's what often happens when a lowly ranked player loses a close first set against a bigger name. But her level didn't drop and she never choked either. So well done.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Surprised about Caro, didn't see it but it's rare a BBB can sustain high quality for 3 sets start to finish.

How good is Halep actually, I mean 2 months ago she was Simugna Help and now she's the next dominant force...Does she have anything to hurt Vika?

Looking forward to Sloane vs Serena, should be feisty.

I don't know. She's very solid (VERY), she's confident because she's doing nothing but winning lately and she has no pressure on her. I would still expect Vika to win it, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it was closer than most expect.

Sloane vs Serena could be fun.

I really don't think Halep is a threat at all to Azarenka. Halep = the new Zvonareva to me. She is just solid, does most things quite well, but is not outstanding at anything. She doesn't have anything close to the type of power that EVERY player who's beaten Azarenka since 2012 has had, so I don't see it happening. Ivanovic is actually the only the only one who even has a slight hope of stopping Aza before the final imo

Ivanovic makes way too many errors and is mentally far too weak to beat Azarenka in my opinion. Her best game might arguably be good enough, but she's NEVER at her best against the best players or/and at the tail-end of big events because she can't handle the pressure.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I really really enjoyed the 1st set between Sloane and Serena. It was really competitive. And god, I just love Sloane's FHs. She's still young, so if she can improve her returns and BHs, I think she will definitely win a slam one day. She always brings her best to slams which are what matter the most, not like other youngsters.
