Moscow R1 - Petrova df. Buchina 62 60

Apparently this was over in around 48 minutes. I was hoping Buchina would put up a decent fight and show she deserved the WC, but this just makes me irritated that they snubbed Dokic all over again.

Oh well, good for Petrova.

Definitely a better choice than Dokic.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Buchina couldn't handle any of Petrova's serves. But Nadia didn't play that well at all, well, you couldn't really tell.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Good for Nadia, but I agree with others: what an absolute waste of a wildcard.

Tarpishev -->

Jelena Dokic would have put up a decent fight at least and make Petrova work harder for her points...

Jelena Dokić ~ Kim Clijsters
Angelique Kerber ~ Simona Halep

Mona Barthel - Jelena Ostapenko
Petra Cetkovská - Denisa Allertová
Mirjana Lučić - Ivana Lisjak

Re: Moscow R1 - Petrova df. Buchina 62 60

all Dokic fans
so what Yana lost, it was expected

1997 Nadia lost to Conchita here 1-6 1-6
next yr Nadia beat her losing 2 games, not that i think Yana will ever make top 100.

2nd WC should have gone to another Russian.

The first set was closer than the score indicates, plenty of deuce games.

But hey, I was on Petrova at -6.5, YEEHA!
