Re: Rome R32: (6) Bertens d. (LL) Anisimova 6-2, 4-6, 7-5

Thank god the fluke run was stopped here. Anisimova has a lot of potential, but is so overranked right now thanks to some weak draws and hitting the jackpot here in Rome after being thrashed in qualies.

Kiki was so horrible and passive from mid 2nd set onwards, should've won something like 6-2 6-1 but was rather lucky to pull it off in the end: don't know how much she'll have in the tank for next match in the afternoon, also taking the Madrid run into account. Surely she can't afford such mental walkabouts in Paris where pressure will be sky high.

Very well done Amanda. On the slowest court of the circuit she proved to be at par with the toughest pusher on tour, adapting her much superior game. Imagine the same match on plexicushion or grass, high-level confrontational tennis instead of hit&run: that pusher wouldn't even see the ball coming.

Hmm, I see what you mean but my definition of rust is playing after not having played for a long time and therefore not feeling your shots as you would normally.

I also did not feel Anisimova tipped this match on her own strength. But that Kiki was dulled I agree with, I think she just lost her focus and intensity, maybe thinking she had it in the bag already.

Wow I started watching at 4-5 and assumed Kiki would probably flop. I figured she was still recovering from the effort of winning Madrid and probably couldn't be fucked here. Wow was I wrong and her emotions after winning have become so intense lately . Very impressive effort to get out of this one.

She has a comfortable draw next, and as far as I remember the last time she played two matches in one day was when she had an absolute marathon with Keys in the Charleston semifinals and then came back that afternoon to destroy Görges and win the biggest title of her career, which consequently kicked off this incredible rise.

Bertens needs to hope Cornet v Suarez Navarro becomes a long match as well.

Don't respond to him, he is a troll and ironically fan of arch pusher Svitolina.

I'm actually amazed the vast majority of TF hasn't put that thing on ignore already

Haha I don't agree with you on Elaine being arch pusher at all (look at how she played in the third set against Vika or even the YEC final last year where she beat Scone by being the far braver one) but I can at least understand why someone could label her as a pusher. For Kiki that's just cuckoo.

Well, Suarez Navarro didn't even have to play two full sets against Cornet. So she should be a lot fresher than Bertens.

Glad to see Amanda push one of the best on clay, to 7-5 in the 3rd. She has a lot to learn, but its all about experiences at this level.

Its a normal bertens match. She can be too passive at times. She cant be tired, she had 4 days of rest.

Wow.... so Bertens could get the #2 seed for RG with a final here? It's asking a lot back to back with Madrid, but anythings possible...
