Robson vs Kvitova
 
Anyone else up for this?

Another huge test for Robson, could set up the Hobbart rematch with Sloane.

She's got experience of beating established names at Grand Slams.

I really rate her chances here, could be huge in her development. Plus she's used to Australian heat, whereas Petra will just wilt.

Petra has been such a disappointment lately... hopefully she doesn't have any health (asthma) issues and swing away like she can...

wow this is some terrible play

Duncan Bell 01-17-2013 01:43 AM

Poor start from both players...

you could say that again. WTA at its best

Robson looks pretty good though

Duncan Bell 01-17-2013 01:57 AM

Robson tanking the first. Will scorch sets 2 and 3...

It's matches like this you are glad they still have paper tickets for. That way you can rip them up as you leave early ...

hideous set by kvitova ... 7 DF, but saved 6 BP

Duncan Bell 01-17-2013 02:23 AM

Robbo wants to think about taking one of these BPs that are on offer...

I think this night session will go down as the most boring, uninteresting despite the featured players. You had Federer and his magic, then you put two lefty go-for-broke-all-the-time ladies to follow, and what do you get? A dead crowd. Even the commentators are sounding uninterested.

Haha, it doesn't help that they put a monotonic umpire for the Robson/Kvitova match.

"about 3,000 people have voted with their feet," says the commie, "it's about half empty now"

Duncan Bell 01-17-2013 02:35 AM

Yes Laura! 3-1.

Duncan Bell 01-17-2013 02:45 AM

5-1! Breadstick chance.

Was watching, then fell asleep, sort of day dreaming or something, Petra was in my dream, looked really hot. Wishing good things on her career

Say Chi Sin Lo 01-17-2013 02:49 AM

It was just announced "heat rule" is in effect, and that either player can request to take a break...

If they do, I'm just going to turn off the TV and sleep.

Say Chi Sin Lo 01-17-2013 02:51 AM

... doubles doubles doubles, errors errors errors, random ridiculous winner out of no where, then back to doubles doubles doubles...

More Epic tanking from Robson. She's looking for a place in the What's Wrong With Her?! Hall of fame...

If Robson gets in, Kvitova gets 2nd place and she wouldn't miss by much.

Duncan Bell 01-17-2013 02:56 AM

2 Set Points for Laura...

takes it! 1-1
