Re: Singapore White group: KaPliskova rolls past Venus 62 62

the return made all the difference for once, karo managed to get an awful lot of balls back on venus' first serve. looks quite promising i have to admit, you go girl!

venus didn't seem to be all that well prepared for this YEC tho. weird errors all over the place off both wings, at least the net play was quite decent and a firm reminder of what she's capable of.


You're like the Ocean and I'm desperate to drown.

It is so easy to distill miss older Williams these days. No wonder it is October month when Williamses are ripe and begging to be turned into a fine pure brandy. Garbine has shown in Wimbledon how it is done. Seems like all the other girls are picking up on a recipe, Pliskobot might as well set new standards since she lost only 4 games!

Sometimes bagels do come out of the pipe alongside this brandy just for those who have sweet tooth. We all might get pretty more drunk as this process in White Group is to be continued!

Congratz Karo, not a fan of hers but she played up to her name, nice to see her bounce back after all critics, she played fair and square.

Venus who brought you here? Seriously old lady, draw a line look you cant do anything anymore you are not threat anymore, just retire and be remember as a multislam champ, you dont want anymore dissapointments. You cant cope with top players anymore!

Vee fans! Must have nerves of steel following her, i am not bashing her, we all know what reality is and shouldnt be blinded. And pls no more Sjogrens excuses. Lady is old unfit, unfocused, is outhit by everybody and represents no challenge anymore.

Exemplifies how fortunate Venus was with her Slam draws this year. When she's against the top players she gets mauled. Pliskova was nearly inside the service box returning those puffball 2nd serves.

As I said Venus will probably go home 0-3. She looks miserable on this slow ass court.

Venus should withdraw. Even [Alt]Mladenovic would put in a better display.

2nd serve was softer than ever. Movement has gotten slower and slower since Wimbledon. Was off balance and/or falling backwards on more than half of her groundstrokes. YIKES.

Raonic played well though. Brought her A-game at the beginning of the match but soon realized that her B-game would be more than enough to cruise. I think she might actually have a chance to go 3-0.

Old lady came here only for them dollar bills! Pension incoming and lawsuit about to be paid, quite a few expenditures and carreer is nearing its end. Quite logical!

Karolina gets 250 points for this win

Venus was terrible. Bad serving and slow and plenty of UEs. Pliskova looked good but I think it's impossible to judge her form after such a match, she didn't have to do much tbh. I hope the next matches will be better.

Pliskova wanted it more today, she was on it from the very start

She was timing the ball extremely well throughout the match, while in the more closer games her serve got her out of trouble.

Venus was sluggish in every way, come the first few games of the first set she already looked defeated.

Pliskova likes a mid paced court. The longer rallies give her rhythm - time to get in position and set up her shots. Despite being a tall girl, she is not a natural aggressor. It helps that her flat shots were bouncing very low for Venus.

That said, Ostapenko is going to suffocate her. Pliskova won't have the time to do any of the above & because she doesn't play first-strike tennis she will constantly be on the back-foot of the rallies. The good news is that her serve is still very effective on these courts.

Muguruza will beat her too if she plays very aggressive.

Just my thoughts.
