Oh my God, that match was absolutely great! That girl is amazing, its a pity that she didnt have the guts to win the third...good fight, Serena!

Why do I always love the game of the russian girls???

She reminds me of Dementieva with a good serve though, the way she can run around the ball and hit the most amazing winner.

She reminds me of a more-aggresive Maleeva with a better serve and a bit less variety (drop shot). She is also like Daniela was two years ago.

She sure is great!

The girl has smarts too. Really innovative shot choices made in Hingis time.

Great match, great girl! She's got a new fan in me for sure! Pity she just couldn't close it out, that was only inexperience. Looking forward to seeing her at Wimbledon. She has real talent, a proper tennis player not just an athlete!

She looks very like Sharapova, they could almost be sisters!!

I also think she looked a bit like Elke Clijsters, with a better game of course.

Her BH is very Hingis-like.

She puts the ball everywhere in the court she wants she's doing everything great!!!
Nice angles, great backhand, fantastic forehand
And the best of all!! she wasn't hard hitting the ball once and again!! just mixing the pace and playing with the whole court

*adds Kirilenko to faves list*

Really like a more-aggressive Maleeva. Good to see someone young to play like that.
