Re: Birmingham R1: O'Brien def Kudryavtseva 6-0 3-6 7-6(2)
She is almost Top100, good for her.
Let's see, she plays Shvedova next. Definitely a winnable match.
Is O'Brien the girl that makes that horrible sound when she hits the ball?
The one that played against Dementieva in Eastbourne last year?
The very same.
Now take out Shvedova.
