This is fair. Sakkari hypes herself up on-court a lot, but when it comes to it, it was Krej who really stayed strong (if a little pushy at times lol)However, she wasn't bold when it counted and for all her all-court posturing, when it got tight she was a bit of a wimp. .
Can you give me some source on this? When Iga did compare herself to Nadal.
i dont think she said something wrong... i bet she wants to be like her idol and she is still a little bit childish sometimes but i dont think she is thinking she is like Rafa + she never acted like she is the best player on the tourIga Swiatek qualified for the quarter-finals of the French Open with an impressive 6-3 6-4 win over Marta Kostyuk.

please no she is not comparing herself with rafa comments. when the same question is asked to naomi like if she is the best player on the tour,
naomi replied: undoubtedly serena cuz it was clear that she is nowhere near serena"s career.
no objections on her putting the ceiling sky high above, appreciated. however "i am not rafa but"... comment just reminds me "i am not racist but".... comments. the way she made this comment is from the vantage point of bragging. childish as u put it correctly. my critique is for her well being. she should be more aware of herself.i dont think she said something wrong... i bet she wants to be like her idol and she is still a little bit childish sometimes but i dont think she is thinking she is like Rafa + she never acted like she is the best player on the tour
It looks effortless, because she practiced very hard during the coronavirus break. The hard work is paying off now.Backhand winner here looks looks so efortless..I haven't watched much of Krejcikova so far, hope she can sustain her level for rest of the year
I hope the guy gets punished. Terrible call at the ultimately most deciding point of a tennis match.Imagine Barbs would be robbed after that HORRIBLE call on one of her MPs... DISGUSTING.
That may be the problem. Pavs has a much better game than Maria in this tournament, means business and doesn't play diva like Maria and Kostyuk before.I thought Sakkari would prevail, but Barbs is not finished just yet. Shame I couldn't watch this one. Hope she still has enough in the tank for the final.
Indeed but she really needs to work with a sports psychologist. Last year she needed like 10 match points before she finally closed out Serena @ Cincy. Then again @ Miami this year she failed to close it out against Andreescu. And now again during the biggest match of her career. It’s a pattern at this point & it needs breaking if she wants to win titles.I admire how disciplined and hardworking Maria is! Sakkari has the blood of old greek gods. She deserved to get this far at this GS. Hard work pays off.
And what I absolutely HATED it was the crowd howling with approval when Barbs made an error.I didn't see big chunks of the match including the first set and most of the second, but I didn't think the quality was as awful as made out, in fact a times in the final set it was very good. And of course the gripping drama, with the moonball rallies, numerous break points coming and going and dodgy calls.
Have to say I was very happy Barbora won. She has quite an elegant, tidy game easily spraying the ball deep and angled and with great touch as you would expect of a doubles slam winner, and doesn't get rattled, and her words afterwards were very powerful. It's amazing how she has gone from ITF scrub to Slam finalist in such a short period, even accounting for the doubles career.
Moreover, Sakkari has an ugly game and I couldn't stand her ugly shouting after every point, and equally that of her entourage and fans.
