Cool Francesca Schiavone defeats Angela Haynes 6-3, 7-6.

I think Angela was too cocky in proclaiming that she would be disappointed in anything less than a quarterfinal!

She should be careful not to think that "knowing Serena and Venus" means that she is one of them or getting too cocky. Other than that, i really like Angela and it's a bummer but Fran must have been fired up because she has qf points to defend.

I agree ... I was shocked when she said that.

Well done Francesca

Francesca seems to be playing well.
But of course she will choke against Amelie. The first set will be close but then she will go down badly without a fight.

How is Angela saying that she would be dissapointed if she did not make the qtrs being cocky?

WTH does this have to do with her knowing Serena and Venus? So, she is cocky for believing in her game? Angela did not even say anything cocky like that Sesil and the majority of you guys were praising her when the young lad has not even made it out of pampers.

well, it is cocky 100%. it probably fired Schiavone up who is already beyond feisty and is RANKED HIGHER!!! HELLOOOOOOOO!

I just worry that trying to associate her with the Williams and this "straight outta compton" BS and making quotes like that just puts her under immensely more pressure.

As far as Sesil is concerned, she was womanhandled by Kuzy and is young and has much to learn and I don't even care 2 cents about her skinny butt. LOL

Sesil was pretty damn close to beating Maria and she just turned 15 - no need to insult her.

obviously you don't see how the media buzz around her is so strongly related to her ties to the Williams. Her career pales in comparison.

I wish her the best though cuz Angela seems much more likeable to me than a lot of struggling/but improving journeywoman players.

Sorry treufreund you really make no sense. I have heard MANY players say they would be dissapointed if they did not get to a certain point in a tournament, and noone said they were cocky.

Angela is straight out of compton and it's not BS. What is wrong with her saying where she is from? Every other girl on tour is willing and ready to holler about where they are from, what's the problem?
