50 minutes for 6 games, has one of them had a time out or something?

Re: Is the pironkova vs errani match really taking so long?

Doesn't look like it, most of the games went to several deuces...

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Inspiration is for amateurs

like brick walls lol, errani runs like a mad woman booting up with spin, pironkova puts big topspin on the forehand but hits flatter on the backhand, both have serves.

Pironkova v Niculescu took 3 hours 7 minutes. This one could easily surpass it.

It should be pretty obvious, because they are both very resilient players who fight hard and don't give away cheap points. That kind of game can break down a lot of opponents, even very good ones.
