Re: AO 2r Safina d Makarova 6-7 6-3 6-0

Dinara was horrible in the first set, too passive

She picked up her game a bit later,

Re: AO 2r Safina d Makarova 6-7 6-3 6-0

I really like Makarova's game. She had 2 break points to be serving 76 *31, but Dinara had a lucky let cord. Then held and Makarova tired as the match went on.

Makarova has a nice lefty game and has improved a lot. I expect her to be top 20 this year and a multi-millionaire in 2 or 3 years.
She's 20.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: AO 2r Safina d Makarova 6-7 6-3 6-0

the turning point was very clear: in the 2nd set, Makarova was leading 2-1 and had BP, she missed easy shot near the net and from this point, it was obvious who gonna win...

Good fighback from Dinara, but really Makarowa had her on the plate... she missed a sitter to go *3-1 up in the 2nd and from then on she never looked like a winner of this match.

Re: AO 2r Safina d Makarova 6-7 6-3 6-0

She missed a very easy shot into the open court on breakpoint early in the 2nd set. Safina was very solid in the third set and didn't let her back into the match.

It seems like players simply aren't able to keep leads against Safina.

Re: AO 2r Safina d Makarova 6-7 6-3 6-0

Safina played like shit in the 1st set, but the next 2 did justice to her ranking.

I wonder is it because of the heat?

Katya choked and let Dinara back in and her level dropped off really sharply.
Dinara got away ........ needs to pick it up quick

It was a good match until Makarova chokes. But I was really impressed by her, she has a nice lefty serve on the deuce side that gave Dinara a lot of troubles. Well played Dinara.

Re: AO 2r Safina d Makarova 6-7 6-3 6-0

After holding at *12 in the second set and then breaking serve, she started to look more and more like herself. Last game in particular had some vintage Safina groundies.
