AO Day Eleven: OOP

Posted by gauloises1 on January 28, 2010

Sorry all … I don’t know why life gets insane in the second week of a Slam, but it never fails. I’ll just say that I’m totally gutted for Azarenka and Djokovic, really pleased for Na Li, and totally terrified about Murray-Cilic. Game on and I’ll try to be better tomorrow.

      Completely agree with Naughty T — never feel the need to apologize. We’re so lucky you provide us with this space!

      On the tennis front, I only watched the women’s matches last night, and I felt really badly for Vika at the end. I thought she played incredibly well for most of the match, and the only area in which I’d say she faltered at all was when she was up 4-0 in the second. I don’t by any means think that she played horrifically, but I do think she let her intensity drop a bit, which helped Serena find a way back in. I did think, though, that once Serena went up 5-4 in the second that Vika raised her level and intensity to match Serena’s. The tiebreak was very high quality, and unfortunately for Vika, Serena was just better. In the third set, Serena wasn’t missing. At all. I think Vika, though, did a much better job here than she did in Doha of managing her emotions in the midst of seeing a lead disappear so I thought that was a step in the right direction for her.

    And here I was hoping you’d have a post-match summary of Marin-Murray with picspam and all *is outraged* 😀

    Also, many congrats on Muzz’s win!

    Was cheering for Cilic but congrats to Murray. Marin will be #10 after the AO. 🙂
