Report from Mashabator who watched the match today

Then in the second set she got a bit more agressive and moved Rus round a bit more (rus was still soooo consistent) so many rallies went for so long! Rus kept hitting crazy winners from everywhere and at the end of long rallies.

Vania was playing really good though and in the third set Rus was making errors and vania started to hit some more winners. Rus was crazy tho she barely made any errors it seemed and got EVERYTHING back and kept hitting winners everywhere randomly

The stats at the end of the first, Rus had a higher first serve percentage and higher % of points won on 1st and 2nd serve, but by the end of the match Vania's serve % was higher as were here other two stats aswell so she really turned it around

Re: Arantxa Rus

Well hopefully Aran thinks the same about her play today Not likely to draw someone as strong as King in R1 of AO

Re: Arantxa Rus

Well no complaints there. She's actually really lucky when it comes to GS draws. Although this is not an easy match.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Well, she was kinda lucky because she didn't get any seed in R1, but Tsurenko is tough player and she is motivated, won 4 matches last year here, ended 2011 with the trophy and played in Brisbane 3 tough matches... But I heard that Aran was quite good against King and I hope she is in the great form... I wish her all the good luck

Re: Arantxa Rus

On paper it's a good draw, but with no wins yet this year it will be tough.

She needs to win in order to defend her points from last year.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Nid

Down 1-4*, up 5-4*, down 5-6*, lost the set and became useless.
