Magical dropshot from Barty to break.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 128

YES Ash!

I was just about to say her signature slice backhand isn't working as well in this set (it's just dropping the balls shorter and allowing Halep to come forward... also she's hit a lot of errors off it). But hey it got her a break back.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 128

that was all Barty errors...

Well done to Simona Halep on finally achieving her GS dream at RG. Never say die!

seems a bit like an accident almost, I don't think she intended it to be that good, had not much time to respond.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 128

Oh, Ash...still having trouble with consistency and mental toughness in key moments. Just a few bad service games were the difference in this match. What a shame.

Still, I'm very pleased with her improvement this year.

I mean let's be honest here, losing 5-7 5-7 to Halep in Madrid is pretty outstanding, bodes very well for Barty's future on clay if she can stay this close to the queen of clay at her favorite tournament.

Intended or not they should show that to kids in training with the tagline "You're never going to hit a dropshot this good, but you should at least try".

Help us, Osaka, you're our only hope.

Not that one can reason with the likes of you but looking at the stats (you know, past matches, I know it's a strange concept for you but stay with me) since her breakthrough only Sharapova, Cornet (that sure was a match, lol) and Pliskova have won against Halep here in Madrid. And plus looking at the scores she's been throwing, 5-7 5-7 is pretty damn good. Maybe I got carried away with the word outstanding in my bid to defend Ash's result today from much of the same assholes who were calling her "Farty" no more than a couple months ago. Regardless, remove that word and you know the rest of what I said is true.

But why am I even trying to explain myself to you? I don't know, must be losing my mind. Thanks anyway for the free publicity, you can be sure I'm gonna enjoy my 15 minutes of fame.
