I can only imagine the tantrums Monica threw on the court in this match, wish I was there.

Monica pretty much had that match and lost it...disapointing. She does win these long ones very often.

Good job to Tsvetana!

Very hard match for both ... 3hrs and 226pts is just horrible . Good luck in next round

She's actually lost way too many like this but Monica is getting better at winning in three it's true. Today just wasn't her day.

Still this was a big improvement on the last time they met when Tsveti won pretty easily. Monica is still improving.

Congrats Tsveti. Great win. Well done.

Ahh I thought Monica would win this. Not the best start to 09 but she is always improving. I don't expect the best from her on this surface either.

Tsvetana This should do wonders for her confidence.

I recall you saying she would never make the top 100. In fact Monica has come from outside the top 200 to inside the top 50 in just 14 months. Not shabby at all. Yes she has lost a lot of close ones over the last year. But I would rather she was losing tightly contested close matches against good players than being blown away by them. Monica is improving all the time and she will continue to do so. Doesn't mean she will win every match though.
