re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Unbelievable last 20 minutes from Robson. Not that she hasn't played extremely well but to survive that mammoth 12 minute game on her own save facing multiple set points with Stosur already a break up, and then to break Stosur back as she serves for the match, amazing.

6-4 5-4 at the moment to Stosur, with Robson serving to stay in the match.

EDIT: Stosur wins on her 9th match point. Unbelievable effort from Robson throughout and she certainly wasn't overwhelmed by Stosur's quality. Played the big points more often than not with absolute precision and resolve and can go away on the back of a breakthrough tournament for her.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Laura saving 8 Match points before losing. Good run for Laura here, but it was too much for her. Stosur didn't play very well here, and that kinda says it all.

Del Potro is going to be the one to end Roddicks career (hopefully)

Gutted that Robson is out. She done extremely well to get this far though, pleased in that respect.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Stosur always chokes in the big points. It is incredible that she needed 9 match points to win the match.

Sharapova is in trouble could get eliminated. Hopefully she breaks back and wins the match.

Roddick will beat Del Potro and Djokovic and will reach the final.

Then Federer will be the one who will deny Roddick another slam and end his career.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Re: Laura. I'm just a little upset she didn't give a better account of herself out there, bar a good start and good fight at the end, she made loads of UE's. She gifted Sam the match. It was just one step too far today, another day and she would have probably won, the odds of beating yet another top ranked player were long, even if she was fancied to win by many.

This doesn't take anything away from how well she has done to get to this point. She can take a lot of confidence away from this and with things to learn from she can improve a hell of a lot in the coming years. Hopefully. I've always had a very good feeling about Laura, that feeling is starting to be realized now, she has a long way to go yet, this was another big step.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Yep, this rain delay should have helped her, she was in complete control in the 1st, 6-1. Then fell apart and went 4-0 down, got back to 4-4 and ended up losing the set 6-4, and now she is broken again, 2-0 down. Crazy game
