FUNNIEST but most pathetic thing EVER!

Okay that got your attention!

Anyway, can you believe it? Davenport beat Sharapova 6/0 6/0!!

Form me, this just proves my point that WTA is a joke. 2 top 3 players can contest a match of that level...it defies belief.

Fed isn't too far from achieving that..I admit, but ATP never gets scorelines week in week out that are 6/1 6/1 or 6/0 6/1 or 6/2 6/2 pretty much all the time.

Re: FUNNIEST but most pathetic thing EVER!

Not sure mate - but that sure shocked me!!

I had her down as favourite to win relatively comfortably...glad i didn't bet on her in the end! I decided that i wouldn't bet on womens' tennis again after Kuz lost yesterday...this really does prove my point!!!!

yeah, my two favorite WTA players. Will be hard to choose, but the nod goes to Linds. Either way, I will be happy. Great day for me.

Re: FUNNIEST but most pathetic thing EVER!

Well no, I don't agree. I didn't watch that match but I'm pretty much sure Lindsay must have played amazingly GREAT and Sharapova was in day off or something like that.
Its not that you see 6-0 6-0 scorelines in women's tennis too often either, specially among top players. It wouldn't be so surprising if not.
The reason why in women's tennis the players can't hold serves that easily is because of the power of the serve. It's not the same returning a 130 kph serve than a 180/200 kph serve for either women or men. I don't see the William sisters losing their serve game too often or at least as often as the other women players on tour.
I think female tennis and male tennis are two completely different things. You might like one and hate the other or like both. I like both. And as a woman I feel affected by that comment ("wta is a joke").

That's all I had to say, specially the last thing

Re: FUNNIEST but most pathetic thing EVER!

This is the best I have seen Linsey play in a long, long, long time. So excuses from Maria won't cut it for me. Linsey gave her a whipping, and I don't think I could have cheered any louder for Linsey.

Well I must say ESPN served up a double bagle for it's most marketed match of this tournament.............................

Well Maria said in the opening interview about lindsey, "It's nice to see her still playing tennis. I admire that"


Well, now, she truly has something to admire about Lindsey.

Re: FUNNIEST but most pathetic thing EVER!

It was one of those days when Lindsay sees the ball big and executes everything with such power and precision that no one, except maybe Venus in her own heyday could make a dent. Yes, Maria became discouraged, and pouty, and looked close to tears, but who could blame her. She played worse and worse, and Lindsay better and better. Lindsay put it well, she didn't play well today, and I played vvv well.

If they don't hold serve easily, which is true...then they break serve more often....doesn't explain why so many matches are 6/1 6/1 etc.

It is a joke...all the players beat each other 6/1 6/1 6/2 6/0 etc and if they don't, there is a match of 18 service breaks. Most of the matches are boring...obviously many ATP matches are too. I can't honestly and truthfully remember one good GS final from the last few years on the WTA tour...can you?

That's all I had to say, specially the last thing
