Garbine always plays very well against the WS. Always. I've never seen her play even just above average. She'll be hitting the lines all day long.

Kvitova fired 10 aces, but also had 10 double faults and while the Czech fired 38 winners to Williams's 15, her 56 unforced errors were more than double the American's 25.

"It was such a weird match," Kvitova said, calling it her worst of the year. "I took the first set. Suddenly I was leading in the second, but somehow I just gave her a chance again to be back in the match, and she took it.

"Suddenly, she just started to play better, I started to play worse ... I was so frustrated with myself from the half of the second set to the end, which shouldn't happen to me.

"I really played bad," she said, "and in the end of the match she definitely played better than me.

Serena is out. That draw didn't help. She could have started with a "cheaper" player and slowly build her stamina.
But the match against Azarenka drained her. Hopefully she was ill and not injured.
Who said Muguraza and Azarenka were no danger?

The draw is the draw, Serena couldn't do a thing about that. Weather conditions at night (cool temps in the desert) didn't help either, for one saw in the Vika match how much she was sniffing from the cold, breathing heavily and carrying that excess weight, just as she did (huffing and puffing) in the KP match she lost at the AO. Serena remains "overweight", past her prime with a declining lst serve, (expected). She's got to do better with her conditioning, while tending to her daughter and attending all of these off-court activities and projects she's as yet involved in. The ego remains strong for her because of her accomplishments, while saying she can "improve" on her game. She needs a reality check here, for she's not going to get better with her game on the downside of her prime, no athlete is, not even the greats get better pushing 40. But she can improve her conditioning and relieve some of the stress on her legs from the excess weight, in addition to playing more often. She's pushing 40, not 30.....

Re Venus and Petra K......2 "passionate" faves for me and 2 of the biggest wastes of talent in the history of the women's game, frustrating watching them skewer significant legacies to be ranked at the end of their careers with the best to ever play the women's game, Venus numero uno.... How does Petra lose to a 39 year old player while in her prime and forfeit a set up and a 3-0 lead in the 2nd set to lose in 3? Coming off a successful year so far for her, winning Sydney, a final in Melbourne, a final in Dubai, losing that final while sending her ground game amateurishly and repeatedly beyond the stadium court sign on the fly.... She says in Grosse's post above..."I was so frustrated with myself from the half of the second set to the end, which shouldn't happen to me." Shouldn't happen to you, Petra? You and Venus have done this to yourselves so often enough that you 2 could co-author a book on how to beat oneself by playing undisciplined, reckless inept tennis, losing matches they should win and being whipped by scrubs in other matches for the most part. These 2 remain ridiculous, for me. Nice win for Venus, but Petra never should have lost this match, especially being up with her game and weapons..... Damn near 60 errors in 3 sets for Petra, Venus winning in 3 with just 15 winners to Petra's 38. Who beat who? C'mon......

I don't think Serena can get slimmer than she is. She has her mom's body type.
I thought physically she looked good.
But yes, she was sniffing through that Vika match.
I read it was something about viral infection. Maybe against Vika, it was just starting.
Besides the serves that was MIA, she played well. She is not going to run side to side like she used to. But surely, she can serve better.
Hope she recovers by the time Miami rolls on.

"Before the match I did not feel great and then it just got worse with every second - extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue," the American said in a statement.

"By the score it might have looked like I started well, but I was not feeling at all well physically. I will focus on getting better and start preparing for Miami."
Get well soon, champion!!!

Always my uWP.
She'll be fine by the time Miami comes around.
