I mean the quality of the tennis. Many said that the quality on display was pretty terrible bar the final set

I got all but 2 of my match predictions right. I got the most obvious ones haha.

Missed the first set bar the last game but neither played great Tennis. Last set was amazing from an entertainment aspect though and I'm not some weird quality jerk off so I had fun.

Great win for Laura. She'll go far once she starts getting seedings and gets easier draws in the early rounds. Wasn't her best performance but she did enough. Kvitova on the whole was poor, last 2 sets anyway. Robson's mentally so far ahead of he majority of the tour which is nuts at such a young age. Kvitova was crumbling whenever Robson had the lead. Double Faults galore and getting noticeably worked up about every point. Looked on the verge of tears dring some replays. Robson just seems to take each game as it comes though. Fantastic to come back from a set down and 3-0 down in the 3rd against someone with a presence like Kvitova.

Robson's forehand is such a beast. She's just got to improve her decision making and she'll be a real force. Too often she goes for the forehand when it's not on rather than rallying out a point. She did that more in the 3rd set and look at the result. Not a coincidence. Movement needs working on too along with the 2nd serve but the mentality and the weapons are there so there's no reason why she wont be a top player before too long.

Any predictions for Robson-Stephens?


I'm saying Stephens in 2. She'll be too consistent for Laura i reckon

Robson's capable of beating her. 3 odd hour match going past Midnight might be the difference though.

First or last on court would be nice. Watson's on first tonight so I might try and catch that.

Robson would have to play well to beat Sloane.

Stephens is in better form, and won their previous meeting. Sloane will keep getting the ball back in play, and won't likely give Robson any gifts, whilst Robson will most likely give Sloane a lot of gifts due to the way she plays.

If Robson steps up her game, and doesn't miss though, then i think Robson will win.

For tonight...

Tipsarevic in 5
Anderson in 5
Djokovic in 3
Almagro in 5
Wawrinka in 4
Nishikori in 3
Berdych in 3
Ferrer in 4

Zheng in 3
Kerber in 3
Bartoli in 2
Radwanska in 2
Ivanovic in 2
Li in 2
Flipkens in 3
Sharapova in 3

Well obviously if Stephens plays well too. Bar the top 3 though you can never know if the women will be on top form or capitulate.

No matter how Sloane plays, Laura will have to play well to beat her.

Bad Sloane > Bad Laura

I might miss Venus-Sharapova . Stupid College

The tennis was pretty awful for a lot of the time. The first set both were terrible, Kvitova was just a little less terrible. Second set Robson started to find range and served better but there were still a ton of unforced errors and double faults. Set three was pretty much of the same until the final six games or so when Robson just started firing and not missing, hitting great serves too. So quality wise, it wasn't the best but drama wise it was great. This is what you get when you have two players ball bashing and missing a lot of the time, it's not the prettiest of matches, but you're certainly into it, I know I was!

Fantastic win for Robson though. She's been known to lose her nerve a little, throwing in double faults on crucial points but this match she played most of those big points beautifully. She takes every point as it comes now and is mentally superior to a lot on tour, as is Heather Watson. The next match is winnable, although Stevens is in form and beat her just over a week ago. She may be more consistent than Kvitova which may give her the edge, but if Robson's on her game she can certainly beat her.

Del Po gets great power on these FH's with such a short wind-up. Reminds me of 2009.
