Fran her right leg was heavily taped and she couldn't play at her best for sure. Bepa should have won in 2 easy sets, but instead she made it interesting... not only by her play

Ana Ivanović.

Well done Bepa!! also good match from Frannyfine who I gather was playing injured always tough that woman (and a bit sexy)

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

As Dexter said, Vera should have won in 2 sets; there was a simple tactic to use against an injured Schivaone but she didn't use it in the opening set. And the tears came back, accompanied by some racquet throwing

Anyway, congrats to her.

Good effort by Fran, considering the injury - I hope she does well in the doubles

Career Grand Slam.

tell me more about it 1st set was all over her... she was arguing about the calls with the umpire (I agree there were close and maybe even unfair for her but still ), the racquet met the floor a couple of times, few tears also. classic Bepa

Ana Ivanović.

I only saw the last 2 sets... and it was PAINFUL!

It's never good to watch a injured player but specially has a fan. Fran was on 1 leg...

And yet she made a match of it. RESPECT!

Don't play singles again though this year.

Vera was unimpressive to the extreme

OMG Vera is just such a brainless player, it must be said. Does she have any idea what to do against an injured player?? Every shot straight up the middle.
Fran, why the hell did you play here?
Awful awful awful match.
