Giorgi--impressive

Giorgi is ready, willing and able to come in, and her aggressive
game sets that up perfectly! She's playing way inside the court and dictating, giving Woz a bit of a pummeling.

Great to see!

That's what comes to mind. She is hitting like a beast and pushing Wozniacki all around the court. Her forehand is ferocious!

the most impressive part of her game is the attitude. every time I watch her play she is ready. compare that to Isner and Delpo, who just showed up not ready to compete.

Wasn't happy having to wait for Fed to get on court. But she plays the game the right way. Power with some strategy.

Dad needs to shut his yap; if the match had turned because of that warning, it would have been terrible.
 
I've been a fan of this girl for quite some time now. Up to this point, her mental game and her inconsistent serve are the reasons she hasn't been a huge success. Today she had everything going for her, and made Woz look like a Hingis.

If she can tune up her deficiencies there's no reason she couldn't be a top 5 contender.

She's a classy girl not only in her play but also in her demeanor and clothing. Definitely a player to watch as she progresses.

I think she got lucky
In what way was she lucky? Her style of play is feast or famine. She will live by the sword or die by the sword. If she's on watch the winners fly off her racquet. If she's off stick hot pokers in your eyes because it will be ugly. Woz caught her when she was on. This aggressive style of play is so much fun to watch when it goes right.

Exactly. She won outright winners off her forehand by pummelling the ball in baseline rallies. That's not "lucky"--it's being aggressive and having confidence in your shots.

Is that a put down? Perhaps I'm dumb, but she made Woz look like a grand slam champ..??

Looking forward to seeing more of her in the future! ;-)
I don't think we can see any more and still have this PG13. On a more appropriate note, she's like a study in muscle anatomy, that last shot looks like those posters that (used to?) hang in biology classrooms. :shock:

Hingis was successful before the Williams/Power era. She became known as a pusher later in her career.

So I was simply saying that Giorgi made Woz look like a pusher.
