Very interesting. She held the world number three to 5 and 4. She served for the first set and was a break up in the second if I remember rightly. Pretty promising .

Anyone have a view on Francesa's serve? I watched the stats at the US Open and was surprised to see her win games with aces and 106 MPH serves (c170 kph?) but when I looked at the match stats I then found her average speeds were even slower than Martina Hingis's. Obviously she doesn't want to damage herself but you wonder what she was serving like today when it mattered?

is a NASDAQ thread by Lokon. If you kook down the thread you will find Lokon has posted a number of sets of pictures - one of these sets has 2 nice pictures of Francesca. Worth a look.

argh what an awful NASDAQ draw - she got Kim early and now gets Serena in round 2! On the other hand if Serena doesn't turn up its a good draw.......

well Serena may have had a stomach bug (who can tell) but Francesca almost had the first set (thats numbers 1 and 3 in the world she has done well against recently ) and there was this amazing match stat: Fastest serve Williams S 110mph, Sciavone 110mph. Read and then look at their sizes! If she can work out why she is losing those serve for the set games.....
I was beginning to worry about her losing points by bumping into the top 3 early in tournaments but there is the other argument that you get better by playing the best and she ought to be encouraged that she can stay with the very best when she faces lower ranked players.

OK. its time Francesca's luck changed. She has played Serena, Kim and Jen and kept close to them (actually got ahead of them) but meeting them early in those draws cut her points back from where she should be in the rankings and allowed the people with easier draws to go ahead . Then the taped thigh appeared against Jen and she lost early in Rome . She deserves some luck now to defend her points and perhaps add some. Lets hope for Fran to be healthy and to get to play with Jen's head by doing the things that only Fran (and Patty) can . Go Francesca

Congrats to Francesca on a terrific Open.

I read in today's scoring thread that she was in tears after her fourth round triumph over Ai - I just wish I could have been there to witness it in person. She's such a fierce competitor and I was thrilled at how she was able to hang in ther mentally and pull through against Ai a fighter in her own right.

She looked fatigued (mostly mentally) against Jen but who could blame her having to be ready to play for three days straight. Fought gamely though and made it a battle in the second set.

Keep climbing girl, the Top 20 is definitely is now well within your reach!
