Well done!!!

Roby is now beating players she's lost to previously. (She was 0-2 vs Jelena) before today. Now the showdown with her friend and compatriot, Flavia.

Forza!

The quarterfinal I've been looking forward to although it's too bad this isn't the final. Tough to root for one over the other as I love both players but I have a soft spot for Roby so I'll be cheering for her. I feel an upset brewing.

Should be interesting as I remember Eggy mentioning they were doubles partners so I'm sure they know each others games well. Anyone have their head to head in juniors?

Forza Roberta!

I'm not sure what their Junior head to head was, but they did win the Junior doubles together at RG in '98. They beat Clijsters and Mia Buric (who's that?).

Nothing head to head in juniors. They played together in doubles from dec 97 until Jun 99 winning 3 tournaments (always in 1999)

Australian Hardcourt Junior Championships (G1)
Italian Junior Open Trofeo A Bonfiglio Campionati (GA)
International Junior Championships of France (GA)

I'm very angry with this match... unfortunately Roby is in the wrong side of the draw, otherwise i'm sure this would be the final...

Roby

The only comfort is that Flavia is in semifinals
