Wimbledon Day 8, Tuesday 9th July Empty Wimbledon Day 8, Tuesday 9th July

Post by barrystar on Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:56 am

Today is mass participation day on this forum, perhaps the most anticipated day of the year by posters - Ladies QF!

CC:

Riske v. Williams S
Strycova v. Konta
Murray A & Williams S v. Marton & Atawo

No. 1:

Halep v. Zhang
Svitolina v. Muchova

And a lot of doubles, juniors, and crusties.

Riske demolished Barty with fine aggressive tennis yesterday, and if she keeps that standard up might discombobulate Williams.  I like Halep, and maybe she'll put on a really good run here.  Muchova was great yesterday too, but a 13-11 final set may catch up with her.  Let's hope Konta puts off her legendary tightness for another round...

The policy of putting Gauff and Konta endlessly on CC is being shown up with many of the QF participants (not including Gauff) strangers to the place, which is hardly fair when they have gone so far in such a big tournament.

Wise words from the Swiss:

Q. More records broken here at Wimbledon: 17 fourth-round appearances, 350 wins at Grand Slams. Moves you to the top of those lists. How do you feel about those records? What is it going to take for somebody to stop your run? You looked in fine form today.
ROGER FEDERER: Thank you, yeah. I mean, the records mean something to me, but not everything just because I am very much aware that not everybody for the last hundred years played all the slams. It's really only the last 20 years that that's been going on. Traveling has gotten easier. I'm sure that's going to keep happening from now on, most of the players will keep playing.

I just hope someone kicks that balloon-butt Serena-Fcking-Williams out of this wimbledon. She not only looks ugly, but her conduct is also just as ugly.

Unbelievable that someone sleeps with her.

It takes all shapes and sizes and also what tickles your pickle. 

I do share the sentiment of wanting to see someone put her out. Just so we are excused from the media fanfare of what an amazing athlete she is being a mother and all. Like she's the only parent playing sport!

He has a point. 

I'd be looking more how a 15 year old unseeded player got more show court time than Barty. That's the real question. 

BBC have now shifted their focus on to Serena and supermum!

Very good first set - Riske playing fine attacking tennis, but once Williams zoned in and combined accuracy with weight of shot she steamed the last two games.  It will be a shock if she doesn't clean this up in two.

Fantastic end to the second set - Riske broke very cleanly showing fine soft hands as well as good placement and depth of shot and has leveled at 1-1.

Really hoping Strycova wins here. I can’t stand Konta and her hideous game.

Absolutely pathetic. Konta just doesn't know what to do with the ball! 

Amusing that her coach doesn't agree with on-court coaching. Sense a parting of the ways there given Konta can't think on her feet. Just see ball hit ball.

Strycova looked calm and collective and destroyed the Konta FH. 

I don't think Konta even came to the net, though this tournament has demonstrated clay courters can succeed.

A proper tennis player that Strycova, and what a charming reaction to her win.  

I feel sorry for Konta, who has once again demonstrated that she is too limited a player to get through the high pressure moments.

Konta indeed is 1d. Didn’t expect her to cave in so meekly after the first set.
Not staying for Murray-Serena doubles..too much for my fine aesthetic palate. Winking

It's a sad indictment of  women's tennis that her fat arse is able to win so much.  None of them can move her around.

He hasn’t had his big match. His form is to withdraw after running himself with a 5 set win over Federer.

I see Konta lost her rag with a presser who implied she bottled the big points. In fairness to the guy, he did have a point.

I can't stand her. Typical. Always acting as the victim while being the sheer aggressor.

I made an effort to listen to the presser...and for once I agree with Konta. She just lost a match in front of the home crowd, was outplayed, gave a very fair and honest description of why and how and some cleverdick chooses to dig further and add more salt to the wound.
Good on Johanna to be outspoken and stand up for herself. I wish more players sat creepy journalists on their backsides like that. Applause

Nah. The guy at best may have been clumsy in how he phrased it, but he was well within his rights to ask. That’s 2 big matches she’s had against lower ranked players that’s she’s frozen on stage. Granted she won’t admit to that, however evidence is pointing towards that.

If she succeeded, she’d be the first to lap up the adulation and praise placed on her by the very same people. It’s a 2 way street.

Konta is all bullshit, with her "process", her hapless mentality and her awful game. I'm sure in private she's perfectly nice but as a tennis player there's nothing to like and in her presser she gave a dishonest assessment of the match and was rightly called out on it, then immediately squealed the victim. How very 2019.
