RG 3R: [13] Safina def. [Q] Zheng 62 75



Dinara was 3-5 down and from 3-5 Zheng won 1 point

Into the 4R without dropping a set, will play the winner of Sharapova vs Knapp.

Still undefeated on red clay

Job well done, Dinara.
Jie was very impressive in the 2nd set. Her comeback into the top50 is just a matter of time. She's without any doubt the most talented Chinese player not to mention the one I like most. Good luck!

Too many UEs from Jie & lack of BP conversations...

Re: RG 3R: [13] Safina def. [Q] Zheng 62 75

Good win, I love how Jie tries to be overaggressive. She really confirms all the best I have thought of her in the qualies. It's extremely hard to beat her with flat strokes. When Safina finally played with more spin, Jie started to make more mistakes, she is so short that it was very hard for her to put more intensity.
A great run for Jie. Congrats Dinara!

Most consistent, probably. But not the most talented.
