Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

I still can't believe it.

Slava on Match point and she goes on to lose the match. The Match point loss turned it completely in Sabine's favour, and was the turning point of the match.

The first set was hers. She was getting the better of Lisicki, and her serve looked strong. Close 2nd set, but a double fault turned that set to Lisicki. The 3rd set Slava started stronger, and seemed to be getting some momentum, but the rain delay happened. When they came back out, Slava started the better of the 2, but the MP choke turned the match towards Sabine. Sabine then broke and it was over for Slava.

Slava is a good player, but is not so great mentally. She can't win those close matches, and has mental collapses when under pressure. She has the game to be a top player, but needs to becoming stronger mentally. This is the 3rd close match in a row she has lost. Kvitova loss at RG was mainly due to fatigue. The Serena loss wasn't too bad because it was Serena, and the rain didn't help. This one, there is no excuse. She choked

This could possibly be Slava's most heartbraking loss. Being so close and losing will take a lot out of her. You could see the disapointment in her face post match, and She wasn't her normal self in the post match handshake. Normally she comes up to the net smiling, and has a short chat with her opponent before leaving with a smile on her face waviing to the fans. Today she shook Sabines hand, said well done or soemthing like that, packed her bags and walked off court. I hope it doesn't affect her confidence in the future, because she can be a top 20 player. She needs to learn from this and come back stronger for the US Open.

Essay over....

Tsonga just won a marathon against Raonic. 6-3,3-6, 25-23. Tsonga really needs to improve his returns, but great fight. Put me in a better mood

This right here is why i love Slava.

From her twitter.

Just lost a big match, perhaps the worst mentally for her, and she keeps on smiling. Can't keep that smile down

Lol there's nothing you can do when your opponent Raonic is serving well.

ALLEZ TSGONA ABSOLUTELY EPIC!

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Sharapova won. What epic match between Tsonga and Raonic. Raonic is turning out to be a great player.

Hewitt is going to face Djokovic in the next round, damm, he is going to get eliminated. Hopefully he puts a fight and does not get thrashed like Roddick was against Djokovic.

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

One of my favourites has a mental lapse, while the other shows a lot of mental strength by not choking in the final set. Allez Jo!!

Sharapova vs Lisicki rematch today. Is it time for Maria's revenge, or will Lisicki prove that the 1st win wasn't a fluke?

Djokovic finding form is worrying. Jo has to face him in the quarter finals, if they both get there. Djokovic was awesome against Roddick. Served like a beast

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Shvedova changed her bar during the rain break

Amazing showing from Robson against Sharapova. Took the 1st set to a tie-break and could have quite easily took that 1st set. Watson outclassed by Kirilenko but still a pretty amazing showing by the GB Girls relative to their rankings.
