Re: R1: Francesca Schiavone d. (23) Aleksandra Wozniak 46 64 64
Schiavone is a fiesty and experienced player, she'll fight for every point and makes you play, this was a tough first round with both players coming off semifinal showings in their last grass court event.
Still, I can't help feeling disappointed that Aleks didn't yank this one out. She has the weapons to dictate the points but instead allowed Francesca to be the aggressor and that is not going to win her matches. I feel as though she fell into the same trap with Wozniacki mid-second set onward...Hopefully she can learn from the experience
Congrats to Francesca, she stepped it up and went for it, deserving victory.
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But he loves you."
