Heard the heat was crazy hot today, and is going to be even hotter next couple of days.

Great win, comfortable for her too. Another poor slam defeat for Errani. Maybe her slide down the rankings is coming quickly.

Had a shock checking the scores for my accumulator before. Anderson & Janowicz both coming from two sets down to win. Just need Paire & Lopez to make it 7 out of 7 now. I wish I'd added Florian Mayer and a couple of others now at good prices.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Yea draw really opened up for her after, that if she plays like that she ecan easily get to 4thR

Both Lopez and Paire should win, after I saw who their opponents are.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Errani always flops on Hard Courts. Won't affect her top 10 ranking as long as she still delivers really strong during Clay Season. Kvitova losing though

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

The player Kvitova lost to is called Khumkum or something. Brilliant

Nice start for Falla, Sabine and Stan the Man. Hopefully tomorrow follows a similar pattern

Not surprising. She's not played a lot, only pulled out of a tournament last week with her wrist still bothering her, and it was a tough match for her. She makes so many errors anyway, when you've not played much, you're always more likely to. To lose a set 6-0 though? Yeah it was embarrassing. Real shame, this was her chance to get some valuable points. Several factors conspired against her, but when she got on court she didn't do herself justice. She needs to do well on the WTA tour now before Paris. She'll be lucky to do much on clay.

Unfortunately I don't see her getting any consistency in her game. I watched a bit of Heather Watson after Laura finished (quickly) and she looks a more complete player, but lacks the punch Laura has in her forehand and serve. Heather's ground strokes are very good and she's tough. She's not going to hit enough winners to really control a match. Her head goes a little too but she can regroup quickly.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It's not really embarrassing when you consider she's playing a very good player who plays better Tennis than quite a few of the top 10 and went deep at Wimbledon last year. If she was facing some unseeded player then yeah it would be she wasn't far, from it. Plus she wasn't 100% ready for the tournament from both the wrist injury and a sheer lack of match time in months.

I'll remember that post when Federer loses to Stepanek though

It was more the manner of the performance in the last set that was embarrassing. Like I said, it was no surprise she lost 2-0, but the errors, shot making was so bad. It went beyond being rusty. Flipkens does play good tennis but she's never really done it consistently. If it wasn't for Wimbledon, most people wouldn't even know her. It was all too easy for her. That's why it was painful to watch.
