Re: Misa in Birmingham: R1 vs. Hlavackova

Since when is Hlavackova a grass goat? she reached R3 last year here I guess...

But Grass is also Misa's best surface so we'll see how it goes

Re: Misa in Birmingham: R1 vs. Hlavackova

Andi is really comfortable on grass.

She might not have that big grass results to back it up yet, but still it will be tough. Wonder if Misa shook off her rustiness.

Re: Misa in Birmingham: R1 vs. Hlavackova

Misa also playing doubles, partnering with Daniilidou, seems to be a good team because Daniilidou is a good grass court player too

(1)Huber/Raymond v Brianti/Cadantu
Dushevina/Tanasugarn v Daniilidou/Krajicek
(4)Kops-Jones/Spears v Hantuchova/Lisicki
Chan/Chan v Jans-Ignacik/Rosolska

(wc)Robson/Watson v Babos/Hsieh
Dekmeijere/Tatishvili v (3)Grandin/Uhlirova
Cirstea/Keothavong v Zhang/Zheng
Benesova/Kudryavtseva v (2)Mirza/Shvedova

Awful draw indeed.

Andrea is a tough grass court player with her big service, attacking groundies and her good volleying skills.

If Misa can serve well she will trouble Andrea. I still think she'll win, but perhaps it will be in 3 sets.

Hlavackova's serve isn't that big is it

Re: Misa in Birmingham: R1 vs. Hlavackova, DR1 vs. Dushevina/Tanasugarn

Down 1-4* guess I underestimated Hlavackova's qualities on grass

Re: Misa in Birmingham: R1 vs. Hlavackova, DR1 vs. Dushevina/Tanasugarn

Lost the 1st set 2-6, it's now *4-4.

Misa had 4-3* 30-0, but Andrea served 4(!) Aces in a row to hold

Tiebreak in the 2nd set, 6-all.

EDIT: The scoreboard froze at 1-0* for Misa and then it resumed at 7-6, and then 8-6!

We're going into a decider, 2-6 7-6(6) 0-0*

Re: Misa in Birmingham: R1 vs. Hlavackova, DR1 vs. Dushevina/Tanasugarn

It's well known Michaella has a shit return.. 14 aces by Andrea

She can win the decider, first serve is dominating.
