re: Tennis Discussion Thread
Shame that Robson didn't play like she did against Clijsters and Li yesterday because she honestly could have beaten Stosur if she was on her game a bit more. Still put in another incredible account for herself though. Just too many errors and not finding the lines with those big shots like she was before. Still, 4th Round of a slam will do her ranking and confidence wonders. Excited for her next year if she stays fit.
Kvitova went out. Total choke. Dominated the 1st set and then for some reason fell to pieces and struggled to win a game in the next 2 sets. Bartoli is fucking psycho though and probably terrified her into defeat. Sharapova got a bit of luck with the rain delay. Funny how many of the top players get a rain delay when they don't have any momentum. Azarenka didn't look as comfortable to me as people make out. Scoreline was misleading. She struggled big time on her serve, fortunate that Tatishvilli was even worse on her serve and couldn't hold.
Be surprised if Radwanska beats Vinci despite being the "favourite". Shame Kirilenko lost because we would have got her vs Serena today. Murray/Raonic is probably gonna be on till silly o'clock given the schedule and how tight and thus long that match will be. Murray SHOULD win.
Kinda fancy Roddick for the upset vs Del Potro actually. Del Potro didn't look convincing against Mayer and Roddick will be a much tougher challenge. Probably be on last as well so he's got to play against the crowd as well who should be crazy for that match.
