Wtaw (Gen. WTA Discussion) [Volume III]

They scheduled Carla Suarez Navaro for the prime time night's match. Seriously? WTF?

Re: 2016 Live Commentary Thread vol. 2

Are they hyping up Gavrilova over in Australia? Would expect her to be on TV 24/7 down there.

The 'darling of Australian Tennis'? The 'greatest fighter in women's tennis'?

You bet they are

haha, no surprise, I take the long flight to Melbourne every two years for the Australian Open. My favorite slam, but wow the hype your channels have for their players is insane. Really make tennis a nationality type thing. Will never forget seeing Groth on those Kia advertisements, think he was on the Challenger tour, had no clue who he was Good times

Can just picture the commentators butchering her surname

Hope she goes far.

Hell yeah. She has beaten more top 10 players in her short career than Pliskova the 9th seed (and now gone further in a slam than her). Plus very quirky and fun to watch. She's perhaps one of the best movers on the tour.

She looks too pumped-up to me, and her constant hopping and the spring in her step kind of annoy me. I really hope Carla Suarez beats her so we don't have to watch her in the night session on RLA again.

Yeah I have seen her play since she was about 15. Know her game quite well.

She had a lot of issues negative issues with our federation here.

Hopefully she has some good people around her down under.

I guess I expected you guys to be hyping her up a lot based on my past experiences in Australia. Her game deserves it, and Australia does need a female tennis champion. Always amazed me how little you have produced on that side with the money you have invested in tennis.

Aussies enjoy a bit of crazy
You need to watch highlights of her match against Sharapova in Miami. That was a schooling of powerplay

I noticed she seems to have embraced the Aussie spirit fairly quickly :-). She looks like the younger sister of Makarova (whom I really like), but her behavior is a mixture of Tomic, Kyrgios and Hewitt - obnoxious, arrogant and over the top.
She does have potential as a player, but I find her on court personality really off-putting.

Please do not bend over for Serena, Maria! (like your fellow countrywoman did today).
Just hope somebody can finally stop this brute.

WTA matches are such a waste of time. Getting cramps in best of 3 yet demand equal prize money.
