    Sharapova prediction.

    It's kind of like the same situation Roger has with Rafa. After losing over and over, he worked on new tactics to get past him and you saw Roger use them against lesser players. However, when he faced Rafa again, he fell back into his same patterns. I saw Maria hit a nice BH slice approach...

    Oh well. Good effort by Krunic. I hope she continues to build on this.

    I sense an Azarenka medical time out coming.

    Wawrinka vs Robredo (US Open 2014 4R)

    Glad ESPN is staying on this match instead of that stinker being played on Ashe. I want to see this Krunic kid beat Aza-wailer, but the tennis in the Wawrinka/Robredo is way better quality than that match.

    Wimbledon 2014 Womens Final: [6] Kvitova vs [13] Bouchard

    She didn't even try and make any adjustments. At some point Bouchard has to realize she can't take that aggressive service return position when players like Kvitova are serving that well. She might have had a better chance to place the return instead of just bunting it back. On her own serve...

    The 2014 FO women's final - Sharapova vs Halep

    Gained a whole new level of respect for Sharapova today. This wasn't one of her usual matches against a lesser opponent where she bashed the ball and let her opponent wilt away. She had to play some great defense to win this match. Halep hit a lot of great shots I thought were either going to...

    The Official 2014 WTA French Open Thread -- For General Discussion

    It won't matter. Sharapova can DF a lot and still win matches because Errani won't be able to hold her own serve enough against her. Jankovic may not be able to take advantage of her weak serve but Sharapova almost certainly will. That high bouncing FH that's giving Jankovic so much trouble...

    :p Was thinking the same thing. Sounds like she's dry-heaving on every shot.

    Serena-Sharapova WTA Miami Masters SF

    Especially since she's also concerned with just getting the serve in.

    Arguments: Why would rafa fake his injury today?

    Who thought he faked his injury? After the injury TO, he basically gave away the 2nd set when he was already down a set. It was clear by Rafa's movement, or lack of movement, in the 2nd and 3rd sets he was injured.

    US Open 2013 Women's SF: Serena Williams (USA) [1] vs. Na Li (CHN) [5]

    She's trying. You can tell her tactic is get the ball deep with spin, but Serena is just handling those high-bouncing shots beautifully. Edit: Wow. As if Serena needed extra luck.

    French Open - WTA - 2013

    Not to mention her ability to take control of points or hit outright winners when she's on the defensive.

    Yeah, I believe the 49ers were favored by a few points.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Watched Ip Man on NetFlix last night. Not really a fan of martial arts flicks anymore, but this was a surprisingly good movie. Looking forward to watching part 2 tonight.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Agreed. The ending had that same last minute re-edit feel of Spielberg's A.I. It looked like he originally planned to end the film with Lincoln leaving the White House for Ford's Theatre. Lewis' performance was outstanding. I was really surprised by the casting of Sally Field as well as the...

    Cloud Atlas. Don't know why it's getting such bad reviews. I enjoyed it.

    Did anyone get Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (phone)?

    I'm seriously considering it, but I want to see it before I buy. It isn't just the dimensions that concerns me, it's the weight (180g). That's how much my old Treo 650 weighed and I hated carrying that thing around. It's either the Note II or the S III, but I doubt I'll be getting another...

    Does anybody feel Serena tanked the second set in the Open and Wimby final?

    I think that ridiculous foot fault call got into her head.

    Missed the match - any replays?

    I set my recording for 5 hours but the GD 1st set took almost 90 minutes and the recording cut off with Murray serving at 5-2 in the 5th. After 5 hours of watching, I didn't get to see Murray win it. I don't know if TTC is going to insert as many commercial breaks as CBS, but you may want to...

    WTA Rankings

    I don't know why any WTA player would even want to be ranked #1 these days. They're just the target of mockery every time Serena beats them in a major or they can't win one. That list just makes me sad for women's tennis.

    2012 Ladies US OPEN Final: [1] Victoria Azarenka vs. [4] Serena Williams

    That 17 point differential plus 1 one more DF helped, but that 13 winners is somewhat misleading. Even though Azarenka wasn't hitting outright winners, she was moving Serena side to side as much as I've seen anyone do to her. Just a well-played match until those final 3 games.

    2012 Ladies US OPEN Final: [1] Victoria Azarenka vs. [4] Serena Williams

    Agree. I still can't stand her howling and delaying tactics, but I gained a measure of respect for Azarenka's game today. A lot of Serena's problems in this match were her own doing, but Azarenka was taking it to her just as much.

    2012 Ladies US OPEN Final: [1] Victoria Azarenka vs. [4] Serena Williams

    How is the player with the most consistent toss and the best serve in women's tennis the only one getting called for foot faults? I find it difficult to believe with the way most of these other women have to chase their tosses they aren't touching the line.

    2012 Ladies US OPEN Final: [1] Victoria Azarenka vs. [4] Serena Williams

    Why does Azarenka feel the need to signal "out" calls? That's getting annoying.

    Azarenka must really get under Sharapova's skin like no one else. I don't remember seeing her get so annoyed during a match.

    WooooHoooot vs Arrgghhuuuhh

    Started out rooting for Sharapova, but in the end I just didn't care. I just wanted the match to be over with. The quality of th match was pretty bad for two of the WTA's marquee players.
