Thumbs up Ferguson loses to Petrova the first set 4-6, 6-0, 6-1!!! She deserves my applause!!!

I dun care about the result, but like Lee Waters earlier, she has gained my support!!

She's playing very well abnd being brave and all!! She almost injuried herself, but picked herself up to continue to play!! That's the attitude!!! Go Sophie!!!

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

when she landed from that smash I had my heart in my mouth.

Glad that she never hurt herself.

Its good getting a set of the world #12.

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie

Sophie just broke back in the last. Gutsy effort!

Giving Nadia a true run for her money.

But stay focused Nadia! You will do it!

I think it'd be fair to say after her interview with Craig Willis that Nadia Petrova is not quite all there.

A Nadia fan, but I agree. You've got to remember that it would have been nerve racking for her knowing that most the people there were cheering for Sophie. Is it just me or do other people get the feeling that Bruce McVaney and Kerryn Pratt hated Nadia

Cheers to Nadia

sophie has a great game, the only concern i have at this point is that she doesnt really have a big shot, everything in her game is solid but she doesnt have a shot which can be match winning, hopefully she can develop one she hit one great backhand down the line winner and her forehand is pretty good so hopefully one of those will develop into a big shot for her, also has sound volleys and a sound serve. think she may need to get a bit more stick on her serve but she has a good topspin serve so she has many options in her game. and she is quite quick around the court.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

She is a great young girl and if she keeps developing her game and fitness she can be a great player one day. And what was with that fake injury time out. Well done anyway sophie better luck next time.
