USO 3r: (27) T. Golovin def. (5) N. Petrova 7-5, 6-7(4), 6-3.


Got scared a little bit after she lost such a tight second set and thought she was gonna tank, but she continued fighting and won it in 3. Great tournament from her. Came in with a somewhat questionable game and has taken advantage of a very kind draw for her and continues her ownership over Petrova, now 3-0 lifetime . Golovin vs Chakvetadze 4r should be an incredible match. Both are at the same tennis level and have somewhat different styles so it should be another hard fought battle. Onto the 4r for the first time at the Open, keep it up Tati .

Nadia . Nice try, tough loss for her. She got two solid wins here so that's a good sign. I hope we see more of the Petrova we saw during the clay season for the remainder of the year. She's such a great talent and it's sad to see her in this sort of state, but hopefully she will turn the corner very soon.
