Saw her at Australia, knew she had potential. Didn't expect her to win this one though!

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

great job! McHale does look promising, and nice to see she got a win after what happened at the AO earlier this year

Polona is a joke everywhere except on clay. Very disappointing.

Christina!


Big moment in her career, the first Slam win. Nice to see her using her wild card to great effect. Polona was really horrible the entire match though, some of those forehand misses late in the second set were hilarious. It's sad that someone with such a beautiful, varied game doesn't trust herself on any surface other than clay. She has to work on improving her game on other surfaces or she will turn into another Cornet.

Awesome, Christina! I knew you could do it!!!

I've thought for over a year she had the most potential of all the young Americans. I hope she can step to that..

Get another win!!

Christina. Used the WC well, and can't wait to see her in the 2r.

Polona. Needs to find a coach who can help her on other surfaces.
