The Girls in Doha
 
Here we go - Premier time.

Draw is 56S, top 8 get a bye to second round.

Points to defend:

Vika 900
Serena 0
Maria 0
AgRad 395
Kerber 70
Errani 0
Kvitova 0
Woz 0
Stosur 620

Li Na misses out because of injury.

So - will the Glorious Vichka rise again on her harpy wings to emerge Vichtorious once more, emitting a howling of blessing upon RedFoo as she does so?

Or will Queen Serene, Sugar-P or someone else ruin the party?
There are serious points on the table here, and it looks like the Pastel Trousered One will have to win if she is to remain head of the table.

Who are we excited to see in this one? I can't wait to see more of the Sloane Ranger, and of course hope Laura continues to improve.

Remember, strong is beautiful.

Robson goes down 6-4,6-1 to Hantuchova. Poor result for Laura.

I think Sloane will go far...hopefully she's confident after AO.

We should pay more attention to Barthel.

Mona Barthel.

The one with Grafian serving & forehand.
Kvitovanian backhand.
Kimiko Datean timing.

Just amazing!

Her name isn't even up there... :?

Kidding. I like Barthel. But those descriptions are over-the-top.

this is just tour de force from Barthel

Serena regains #1 by making the semis! She was impressive off the ground against Gavrilova today, although her serve was atrocious particularly in the second set.

And lol @ Kvitovanian backhand like that's some kind of compliment.

BlewByU 02-12-2013 10:17 AM

3 - 1 Barthel with another love game !

The world #6, that is Kerber, completely has no idea what to do in face of Barthel's all-around dominance.

Incredible!

. . . . .

BlewByU 02-12-2013 10:26 AM

4 - 2 Barthel

Great thighs of Germany collapsing like cardboard now...

. . . . .

BlewByU 02-12-2013 10:28 AM

5 - 2 Barthel

this is speechless now.

. . . . .

BlewByU 02-12-2013 10:39 AM

And with an ace, Barthel wins the set 6 - 2

Thats 6-1, 6-2 Barthel over Kerber

Barthel disposes world #6 in a sheer tour de force !


Mona Barthellllllllllllllll !

worthy member of our redemption squad

I saw Barthel for the first time in her tournament win a couple of weeks ago, and really enjoyed watching her. Maybe this will be a big year for her.

Kvitova needs to go out there and pretend she is playing Fed Cup.

Say what you want, she shows up for Fed Cup.
