Wow! Safina must have mentally checked out of the match after winning that tight second set. Good win for Bartoli, though. She needed a good run this week.

Marion's "injury" was very suspicious. She was moving fine during points and it only really seemed to be bothering her after she lost points. Plus, the pain seemed to appear less intense the more her lead grew. I'm not necessarily accusing her of faking, but it was certainly very strange, and affected Dinara more than it did Marion.

Anyway, pretty entertaining (and whacky) match. I hope Marion has something to give against Yan tomorrow.

Can someone tell me the 2nd set tiebreak score?

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

Well done, Marion


Dinara was affected by Marion's injury and lost her focus, whereas Marion pulled it together in the 3rd.

This made up for Jelena-Sybille match

Best match I've watched all year, it had everything.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Yeah, it was certainly weird, although I don't think she was faking.
