Martić Goes Down In French Open Quarters

June 3, 2019

28 year-old Split native Petra Martić marched into her first ever Grand Slam quarterfinal match Sunday afternoon in Paris after beating Estonian Kaia Kanepi 5-7, 6-2, 6-4 in the 4th Round. But it wasn’t meant to be as unranked Czech Marketa Vondrousova beat Martić 7-6, 7-5 in the quarters Tuesday night to end the Croatian’s run. Martič got to the quarters by getting a huge victory against world #2 Karolina Pliskova in the 3rd Round.

 

 

Croatian women’s tennis has been in a bit of a lull. However, with Martić making the French quarters and Donna Vekić making it all the way to the 4th Round, good tennis is being played by the Croatians with Wimbledon less than a month away.

    Has been hurt by injuries during her career nice too see her make a deep run if not for injuries she should have been a top 15 player.

    Dunno nuff bout it
    I know DC is good
    But we all know what kind of stress it was watching the World Cup
    We have to give him a pass cause he was having his kid and World Cup

    I don’t follow much but I did read something where Joe Rogan said DC better not get complacent

    Stipe will be smarter and yes he hasn’t been fighting
    He will be hungry and cevapi and palacinke alone won’t suffice

    I think it’s a tough match but I can see stipe winning
    And that’s without homer glasses
    Homer glasses says stipe knocks him out first round

    Dominic Cruz broke down the DC destruction of Stipe beautifully.

    It seems like Cruz believes the only way Stipe can win is if he keeps his distance and wins a boring decision, and I’d agree with that.

    Remember DC has never lost at HW, he’s the greatest HW of all time. It’s also true that Jon Jones, the pound for pound best fighter in the world, doesn’t want none of DC at HW.

    I hope DC wins and goes on to break Stipe’s record for title defenses, he shouldn’t retire before having a go at breaking the record in my opinion.

    U know who really won?
    Dana white and those wop brothers who funded it
    Just watched an interview of the three when they sold it
    From 2 million purchase to being 44 million in the hole to selling it for 4 billion
    Crazy

    Cormier has that thick African skull.
    They have thick skulls this is a fact.
    Stipe should try to submit him.

    Did you know that Stipe isn’t the only fighter that’s ever been poked in the eye?

    I laughed when I saw those videos of DC unintentionally poking Stipe in the eye and how over the top they were, but eye poke or not, DC is just way better, and way smarter than Stipe.

    It’s actually only been the Stipe fanboys/homers that have used the eye poke excuse, Stipe not being your typical Croat has made no excuses, he understands that shit like that happens in mma, and that he’s not the first and won’t be the last to be poked in the eye.

    Also, DC has never lost at HW, never, why do you think that even the pound for pound best fighter in the world Jon Jones wants none of DC at HW?
