T E N N I S

This thread is for anybody to talk about current tennis! Whether it's a men's tennis match result to an epic three-set women's final, you can discuss it here. You can also talk about issues in tennis, like gambling or on-court coaching. It's a vain attempt to keep this Kim forum alive.

Re: T E N N I S

Nice one

Now does anyone play with an open stance or a square stance?

Re: T E N N I S

Well, I play with an open stance. But sometimes I don't ben my knees (I'm lazy :P) and my shots are a bit wild. I'm learning to play more and more with a closed stance, though. But right now, bending anf getting my feet into position is what I'm really working on. When you play against some kids who just tap the ball back, you can afford to just control the ball with your racquet andf barely move your feet. But you can't win points against the good players with that type of play.

Ivanovic lost in three sets to Srebotinik. And Dementieva won! Good for her!!

Re: T E N N I S

I play with a semi open stance & I need to learn how to control my footwork in order to control my shots efficiently. I really wanna buy the same racquet Kim has, but I have two racquets at the moment so I really don't wanna waste my money at the moment.

I don't really care about having the same racquet as Kim, even though that would be really cool. I have two really great Yonex racquets, I bought them at Swedish Open this summer.

Re: T E N N I S

Yasmine, you should take it up!

Frankly, as great as my racquet is, I would be fine with a different racquet. It's greattttt that it's Kim's racquet as well, but I mainly love it because it is a really great racquet for my type of play. I play like Kim does on court! Except the volley... :-/

Serena lost 63 63 against Kuznetsova.

Don't worry Yas, you're allowed to speak to us even though you don't play tennis.

Re: T E N N I S

Well, it's easy to manuever, it's light, and it has a bunch of power. You also get a lot more reach, which is good for defensive playing and volleys. I love it.

Henin won today 26 62 61. She started playing better and Golovin fell apart.

Re: T E N N I S

Well, I played tennis when I was really young. Except I didn't like it. So I did swim team, which was this all year around swim indoors five times a week and travel round the country to swim meets kind of team. But it took up your whole life, and I decided I wanted to take tennis up again. But I couldn't do tennis AND swimming. So I chose tennis when I was twelve. So I've been playing for the past two years, about. But I have to say I was a pretty fast learner at tennis.

Who do you guys bet your money on in Moscow?

Re: T E N N I S

I started playing tennis about two years ago & thats really the only sport i've ver played competitvely.

I think Sharapova might win Moscow to be honest, but Serena & Sveta are in with a chance. tough to pick.
