So, as you, tennis fans, probably already know, Kirilenko attempted a tweener – or the famous Gran-Willy, immortalized by both Willy and Rodger – today, in her match vs. fellow Adidas-sponsored Petkovic.
And she made it! /Shocked
I have seen some WTA players trying it recently, but I can’t recall any of them being successful (*cough* Ana?). In fact, the last tweener effectively hit by a girl that I can remember is the one Schiavone did at the US Open (will also post the video).
So, if you’re now asking “what’s the meaning???”, I answer: Does it have to be meaningful to be nice???
Think about it.
Oh yeah, before I forget, the vids:
Kiri’s tweener vs. Petko (she lost the match, btw)
BONUS – Schiavone’s tweener
OH YEAH, I NEARLY MISSED IT. The title says “Kirilenko in two vids”, correct? Correct, because I wrote it.
The second is from her match vs. Kuznetsova in Rome last year. It’s pretty famous too (I guess) (100% sure it is among tennis fans).
Kirilenko – the master of the tricky shots
