Great effort for Ayumi and a great win for her! I was getting worried that she wasn't going to close it out after being up 5-2 but she did!

Now good luck against Na! Great opportunity!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Wow, well done Ayumi

Marina : hug: After 7-5 5-3 you would have expected her to close it out easily...

Ana Ivanovic is now retired.
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

Ayumi

I am so happy right now and this is a very impressive win given her recent form. She leads the head to head vs Marina 2-0 now I think .

Is that her first victory after a long losing streak?


Inspiration is for amateurs

Let's all remember that Marina Erakovic beat Mahe Drysdale (3 time world champion) a few days ago

AND LETS FORGET THIS MATCH EVER HAPPENNED
(and if you mention that Ayumi now leads Marina 3-0 you will make me even more upset)

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Yuck Marina
Thats three first round losses in a row!
Hopefully she can bounce back at Forest Hills and the US Open

Saviour of NZ Tennis Marina Erakovic

My fave forever Justine Henin

Daniela Hantuchova, Andrea Petkovic and Ana Ivanovic
