Wozniak was doing nothing, so passive it was painful. She deserved to lose.

Francesca. What an amazing forehand to end the match with.

Wozniak Again - I see nothing interesting and top 20 worthy in her.

Re: R1: Francesca Schiavone d. (23) Aleksandra Wozniak 46 64 64

Aleks needs to work on her volleys.

Sometimes she does play passive. She has to find a happy medium between going for her shots much and just putting the ball back in play. Baby steps.... baby steps.

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Aleks

Only saw the first two sets; utter capitulation to let Schiavone take the second. It's all the more annoying because Aleks could have done well here.

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."

Schiavone hit a linesman along the way.

Wozniak had so much hype in Quebec, the press was expecting her to do so well. She'll learn that being that passive isn't a good thing.

She needs to work on her 2nd serve, that last one was a joke.
