Well done Anna! She came from 5-3 down in the 2nd and saved 2 match points. The match lasted 2h50m.

Good luck in the next round

Huge effort fom Anna- This is a very important result for her confidence; she had many problems this year and the question of retirement is all the time in her head, so she will now be more relax...

Razzano gagged on that one hard after leading 6-4 5-3 and 2 matchpoints on Smashnova's serve. It was the classic lead 5-3, lose the the set 7-5 women's tennis collapse.

Smashnova needs to play three hours every time out right?

As I said in another thread, I would be shitting myself at the prospect of playing her, cause you know you're in for a long day at the office.
