As I say that, Ivanovic has forgotten how to serve again...
This match. :lol:
It will be hilarious if Ivanovic somehow manages to win this set (and the match)
Wow, Ivanovic got both breaks back.
EDIT: And got broken in her serve.
Wow so what happened to Sloane? Anyone watch the match? Did she completely crumble or did Radwanska step up her game? Cuz I'm pretty sure last I checked the score was like 3-2 in the second set...for her to lose the last 9 games of the match...yikes. So yea what happened?
Also...one of the rare times I'll actually root for Ivanovic, but seeing as how it's Errani she's facing, I would really be DELIGHTED if she won.
How are these players struggling against Jankovic?
Ivanovic about to blow the match
EDIT: Mission accomplished.
I was very silly and broke the WTA rule again and bet on Cirstea. She lost a 24 point service game already and I assume has now gone nuts. JJ serving to bagel.
Serves me right.
How did Serena win? It seemed like she was tanking the match or was injured when I stopped watching at 3-0 in the second set.
Same here, except I bet on Ivanovic. She was an underdog and I definitely thought she was playing well enough to beat Errani. Not sure what happened lol.
At least you had the opportunity to close out a profit after the first set (assuming you bet on an exchange).
Cirstea has just taken the bagel from JJ. Hopefully she can rebound. I've been obliged to double at 5.2 seeing as I backed pre-match at 2.1. Stupid betting on the WTA is a dead weight on profits betting on ATP. I'm an idiot.
That was right when she turned it on. Came into the net a bit, started making her serves and hitting winners and yelling come ons. Basically showed up and started playing her game. Domi was ok. But not her best and it would take her best to hang in there with Serena at this level.
Serena wins the first set 6-3
Li being an unforced error machine as usual.
This is dreadful. The WTA really does suck at times.
Yes. The Li Na who showed up and schooled Sharapova at the Australian Open is not playing today. Serena is not having to work for this match so far.
Watching Li play is extremely frustrating. She can make some an amazing shot and then follow it with a dumb UE.
I hope Serena doesn't quit.
Serena double faulting multiple times in each service game, looks clearly hurt.
This could be over despite Serena having a lead.
Serena's been getting injured a LOT lately, what is going on?
lol these tennis players are so fragile.
Beautiful point Li Na!
Outside of the Top 3, the WTA is a mess. You know there's a problem when Serena's down 2-5, injured, with a set point against her and the result is never in doubt.
how was the bouchard vs sharapova match?
Horrendous. Maria comprehensively outclassed her from beginning to end.
Maria's going to win this
No way. Serena owns her. Although she does seem to be laboring this week.
Not if she has to play Serena in the final she won't.
lol true. I think 6-2 6-3 is a reasonable scoreline for that match.
It does not matter if she is laboring this week, it is the match-up issue between Serena and Maria and Maria has never been able to give Serena a good fight the way Li Na did today or at least Maria has not been able to put up a good fight against Serena in years.
Sadly, that will be the likely outcome. Also Serena gives it that extra oomph when she plays Maria.
I think she'll lose to Aggy in the SF, who will lose to Maria in the final.
What many in this thread fails to realize is Serena's fight.
She can be down, injured, laboring in pain...she finds a way to win. This is what separates a champion from the rest. She did this when down with Cibulkova and now today, with Li Na. The only individual who has now become a more formidable threat that capitalizes on Serena's errors is Azarenka, but apparently she is also more prone to injury as of late.
As always, the series is Serena's to lose.
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Thanks for the laughs.
Yes I agree. The great Serena seems way off her game this week so that should allow the untalented Sharapova if she plays her A game to get 5 or 6 games as opposed to her usual 1 or 2.
I always disliked Flipkens because of those stupid looking goggles.
Thank you!! So hard to take her seriously as anything other than a journeywoman with those hideous things.
Radwanska coming out flat in every match this week.
She has Flipkens right where she wants her...!!
wow, that shot from Radwanska at second 2-0 15-0 to do a 360 and volley the ball that fell off the netcord behind her with back to the net - it was worthy of comparison with any trick shot. awesome!
I didn't used to care for Radwanska but she's very attractive these days.
especially if you see Serena standing next to her with her gigantic, well, you know what
so few months ago Aga double bageled Cibulkova who almost beat Serena now
If Li was not that mental she would have beat Serena today
Last year was Venus, now is the time for Serena
Serena playing at 50% still clowned both Li and Cibulkova. Once Serena woke up halfway through the second set against Dominika, it was one way traffic till the end. and it isn't as if Radwanska is playing that great either, she's dropped sets to world beaters Rybarikova, Stephens, and Flipkens. Get a grip.
This tells me all I need to know about you....the motives behind your comments about Serena are quite obvious.
"Aga" beating Cibulkaova who almost beat SW today, means nothing.
Agreed. It is not uncommon for SW to start off rusty, then get the focus she needs. This does not work in every match, but there's along history supporting it.
Really? Because she wears goggles? I can see disliking players because of their attitude, behavior, propensity towards choking away leads, because they repeatedly beat your favorite player, but because of goggles?
I've never really taken any notice of Flipkens because for a long time she was the forgotten Belgian but now she is playing better than she ever has. She's taken sets off Azarenka, Radwanska and beaten Kvitova. Root for new blood in the WTA not against goggles.
well, that comment tells me all I need to know about you too
i do not live in a shell, so i am not afraid to name things the way they are, and weather you like it or not, that is the way they are
actually, Rybarikova played really well and in that form she could have beat anyone, the other 2 was just a 1 break that made a difference, the rest was a lopsided match
before Wimbledon final I was reading on here it would be bagels or bread sticks, as it turned out it was a match. maybe you should get a grip
