Re: Paris and Doha 2014

Flipkens is in bad form, Meusburger is a pusher, Sharapova will tank it to promote her sweets and we have semifinal



● Barthel ● Bertens ● Andreescu ● Alexandrova ● Vekic ●

This means that if she loses to Flipkens today, she will be ranked 63 by the beginning of next week.

here is the site
http://tennis4wta.com/Siralama/s1_50.html

notie how they do it:

Mona hasnt played yet, so she should still be at position 36...with projections of her possible wins or losses

they act as if she HAS played or they are confident she will lose

Re: Paris and Doha 2014

Turned on the stream only to see her shaking hands.

What happened in the third?

Not much.
Pretty bad performance from both.
Mona was abysmal and seemingly without any interest as we know her at times. It was really hurtful to watch.

Tbh, I`d propose her to take a longer break, think about and decide whether she wants to continue her tennis career or do something else in her life.

Re: Paris and Doha 2014

Flipkens made what? 15 errors in a 3-setter? 3 or 4 of those in the third set.

Yeah, complete and utter shit performance by Flipkens. Heard it first in this thread.
