I can't believe no one has made a thread for this result yet.
Personally I couldn't let that continue because if any result today deserves a thread this is the one.
This is Edina Gallovits's 12th win in a row. But much more important it is easily the best win of her career. Anabel Medina Garrigues is one of the most consistant women in tennis. Except perhaps on grass, she is never easy to beat and always makes her opponents work very hard.
In all Edina's career, she has had some decent wins but never anyone of the calibre of AMG. And given Edina's recent very good form it is reasonable to assume this was not a fluke.
I feel pretty sure, providing Edina stays healthy, this win, the best in her career, in her first tournament of the year, should almost certainly be the start of what will easily be the best year of her tennis career so far.
Congrats Edina and keep it up.
2009 is looking good both for Edina and for Romanian tennis in general.
