re: Tennis Discussion Thread
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.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
