Wimbledon 2014: MOTD Day 12 Sat 05/07/2014 - Ladies Final

Post by summerblues on Sat Jul 05, 2014 5:09 am

There has been backroom pressure to change the playing conditions to allow the pack to catch up with the outstanding performer of this generation.  Hence, we will be able to earn extra points today:

For each match, please pick not only the winner but also the score in sets (e.g., 2-1 for BO3 matches).  Remember, Ladies' singles and doubles are BO3, while gentlemen's doubles are BO5.  Also, as before, please put joker on one of your picks.  The scoring will be as follows:

1.  If you get the match winner right but not the sets, nor use the joker - regular points (e.g., 33 for Bouchard)
2. If you get the winner right as well as the sets, but do not use the joker - double the points (e.g., 66 for Bouchard)
3. If you get the winner right, but you get the sets wrong, and you used the joker on the match - double the points (e.g., 66 for Bouchard)
4. If you get both the winner and the sets right on your jokered match - quadruple the points (e.g., 132 for Bouchard)

As always, good luck to all of us:


Eugenie Bouchard  (CAN) [33]
v
Petra Kvitova  (CZE) [26]


Timea Babos  (HUN) [33]
Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) [33]
v
Sara Errani  (ITA) [21]
Roberta Vinci (ITA) [21]


Bob Bryan  (USA) [1]
Mike Bryan (USA) [1]
v
Vasek Pospisil  (CAN) [33]
Jack Sock (USA) [33]

Yes, Kvitova is going for broke more often than not, that's her game and with her superior power it seems to pay off so far.

Huhu, got it right! Big Grin I wasn't sure how they'd match up and how Bouchard would cope with the big lefty serve with her return position. Not too good it turns out.

Really happy for Petra!
Her split from Radek did miracles for her tennis Winking

I thought Bouchard's tenacity would have sent Petra all over the place as she seems to have been playing since her last Wimbledon in 2011, but am glad I was wrong.
I didn't see the match (my turn to go to a wedding!), but she must have really been in the zone to demolish Bouchard, will try and see a bit of replay.
Feel sorry for people who bought those expensive tickets, many travelling from afar to see a 55 min final...
Mind you, I wouldn't've gone if they paid me to...(seriously!) however good they are, they are just so boring compared to men's tennis.

I saw the first set and I actually thought it was fun to watch. Certainlt the second set was a pain.....But the funny thing is that Bouchard and Kvit will have earned as much as Fed and Djoko!
