Simona Saves The World From Extinction

I had my doubts but Simona saved Tennis for real...

Imagine that ridiculous pusher with amateur level slicing in a Wimbledon final....

The only real win was Sakkari, every other Elina win in this SF run had a reason behind it, injured or tired opponents.

The bad news is that Svitolina will remain in the top ten for the foreseeable future because of this tragic bottom half.

Tsitsipas and Sakkari outed in public.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Halep d. Svitolina 61 63

Congratulations to Simona for making a grand slam final on a third surface. I’ve always been surprised that it took her since 2014 to get back to a Wimbledon SF and now she’s in the final I think there’s a better chance of it being competitive than if Svitolina had won today.

Svitolina can’t feel too bad about losing today. She’s broken the GS SF curse and it might take the pressure off her when Roland Garros comes round next year.

Elena was extremely fortunate to naje the SF. Not surprised Halep took her out easily.

Can't believe Elina didn't show up for this match. Abysmal performance from her. Totally did not expect that, i thought she would be there mentally at least.

Well done Halep. Into the wimbledon final.

Simona

She played a great match, her best tennis
Very aggressive and patient. She completely dominated
Amazing movement, smart, determined, mentally strong, impressive defense
She wants this title !

Svitolina was lucky in this tournament, she should have lost in R2 to Gasparyan already.

Svitolina

Well done Simona! Elina couldn't really find her form. Its quite a shame how slow the court is playing tbh. Its like a low bouncing slower hard court

Re: Wimbledon SF: Halep d. Svitolina 61 63

Someone should have hypnotised Elina into believing that she was playing at Dubai or Rome.

This is the difference between slam semis and Premier finals. No carcass for you to feast on Elina!

Re: Wimbledon SF: Halep d. Svitolina 61 63

What a lame performance by Elaine, only pushing! She has no business playing Slam semis. I blame Gasparyan's cramps for this mess. I don't think I can remember even the master pusher Kerber play like this.

Dominant performance from Halep. Svitolina didnt do much wrong. Just too much game. Great match to watch.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Halep d. Svitolina 61 63

Svitolina’s game was hilarious. One would wonder why she is in SF of a grass court Slam.

Congrats to Halep I guess. But if Serena is on the other side of the net, Halep is more than happy to gift her #24.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Halep d. Svitolina 61 63

Pretty much one way traffic once Halep stepped up after the first two (tragic) games and decided to dictate the play. The dropshot was working so well for her.

This was such a weird match from Svitolina thugh. Not that Halep wasn’t playing rather well, but it’s odd when you’ve beaten someone four times (in pretty convincing fashion!) and come out looking totally clueless as to how to play them or what to do with their game. Perhaps it’s first time SF nerves or she’s still not the same player [yet] since the injury… but what a tepid, tactically unaware performance. She gave Halep every ball she wanted.
