Iveta Benesova is known to play better agst higher-ranked players: prepares herself well and stays focused. When she's playing down, she takes less care to prep: parties the night before, barely warms up, and tries too often to "wing it". This year, she dispatched Mary Pierce at the AO and played very solid sets agst Mauresmo in Antwerp. Her tactic is sound too: get ahead early and stay ahead. This match the was the same: up 3-0 in two of the sets. Well done Iveta , regardles Fran's wrist injury. Wish Schiavone speedy recovery.
