US Q1: (18) Kyra Nagy defeated Melanie South 64 61

Well done Kyra! But MELANIE this is an AWFUL loss for you...
After beating Schiavone at Wimbledon i really thought you where gonna step and give us a Top 100 Brit! But this loss is poor, no disrespect to Kyra who is a hardworker but prefers the clay! Mel should be winning these matches!

Melanie has actually had a good summer. Two 25K semifinals in the UK and China and then she won a 25K in China as well.

I think we'll see her in the top 100 soon. Everybody is entitled to a bad day.

A lot of it seems to be mental though. They just really don't handle clutch situations well. Keovathong got blown out in third set. Borwell was up 6-3 in the final set tiebreak and blew it. Now O'Brien was up a set and 5-3 and blew it, so she's in the third set now...keeping in mind she literally got the easiest possible draw with Ashley Weinhold.

British women are well known to be weak mentally.

Keothavong doesn't really have the weapons to be Top 100. Borwell seems to be already using a grass court season to keep her around 200. She nearly choked against Domachowska too. O'Brien seems to be getting worse mentally. She was better than Garbin the whole match till it got tight, where she screamed and threw her racquet after every point. South got very lucky with that fluky win over Schiavone. Although she's won 15 matches since Wimby, she has only 1 against a top 200 player *Borwell* and 2 over a Top 300 player *O'Brien and a slumping Dabek*

British tennis still is in no recovery stage
