AO R1: (WC)J.Moore d. (WC)C.McHale 1-6, 6-3, 9-7

So sad for McHale and she was crying after she lost. I was hoping she would be able to fight through it, considering how bad Moore was playing.

Nice effort. Seems promising.

What a shame for McHale. She's got great game - more potential than Moore, imo, but it was just too tough for her to win this one.

Great fight Christina, she probably would have taken this match if she didn't have bum legs.

Moore IMO did not deserve the WC, besides being the top Aussie not directly in, I felt Sophie deserved to get one more and Moore has gotten her 3rd lucky 1st round match in a major.

Mchale...definitely got more potential. She started cramping at the end which is a shame! Definitely a player to look out for

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

Really great effort by Christina to fight through full body cramps in the third and push Moore so far. I hope she recovers well for the girls event, and she certainly has a lot of potential. Also, props to her for even agreeing to be interviewed by Pam after the match in spite of her emotions. Moore deserves to be commended too, however, because she battled her own nerves and an injured opponent to get the win in the end.

Great effort from McHale she kept trying and digging deep. Def has potential, has a great defensive game and also aggressive, also great experience for her playing against an aussie infront of an aussie crowd.

WD jess another 2rd, gave me a few heart attacks during the match, going to have to step it up in the next round.

They both played amazing tennis! II really enjoyed this match.

've never even heard of McHale. Not so sure the cramps did her in at the end, but she lost a precious game or two earlier in the set due to them.

Well done Jess! Lots of drama in this match. Great effort to defend last year's points.

Felt bad for Christina. She has a nice game and lots of potential.

I was hoping Christina could pull off the win.

Too bad the cramps came or else she would of won this match.

That was really sad to watch. I wanted to cry at the end with her. She is definitely a girl I am gonna watch for. And since she is from Jersey, thats a plus for me.
