Impressed by Mladenovic! I thought she'd get eaten alive, but she showed some great if inconsistent game.
That said Patty pretty much sucked.

Oooooooooh this girl has POTENTIAL. She's just 15 so there's still a lot of inconsistency, but she has a lot of passion for tennis.

I hope Kiki takes only positives from this match. She destroyed a top15 player in the 1st set (sure Patty struggled with the wind, but it was the same for both players and Kristina made some spectacular winners). She has an awesome serve and for a 15yo she has a great talent. Hope she develops in the best way possible!
Patty's experience pushed her through in the end, Kristina went for too much at the end of the 2nd set and it nearly paid off... nearly Looked like she had a hurt wrist in the 3rd set too...

Patty was not Happy with Kristina, she was sending weird faces to her camp about her rival...

No wonder
She was upset at the time Kristina took between points, and like I said: no wonder
I think it's the worst I've ever seen. She finally got a time violation at the end of the second set, but the empire should have acted much sooner. Hopefully her camp will straighten this out

Otherwise I was very impressed with young Kristina

omg I was afraid kristina to get smaked on 2 sets by schnyder but she handled so well her first match in the main draw of a slam!
she did very good job for such a young and inexperienced player.
She just can be proud of her,taking one set to a top15 player is very positive.
I hope she's ok with her wrist though

My god Patty played bad. Mladenovic takes so long as well.

Bad match, I left after the second set...I was just pissed off with how bad Patty played. Surprised she won in the end.
