I watched the first set and the beginning of 2nd (then my livestream died)... Petkovic was really good. I just hoped she couldn`t keep this level for the whole match.

Oudin hasn`t won yet ...

Jelena Dementjeva
Marion Bartoli
Patty Schnyder


Majerič, Hercog, Rampre, ...
Šarapova, Kerber, Kirilenko, Makarova, Robson, Pavljučenkova, Svitolina, Vekić, Putinceva, ...

Re: Paris QF; LenaD def. Petkovic 3-6 6-4 6-2

Phew!
Always nice to see Lena win a match after losing the 1st set, she used to do it all the time but lately it doesn#t happen too often.
Petkovic played great, if she can keep this up she's definitely heading for at least top 20. Great composure.
Lena really wants to win this title, whoever she faces next round, she's lost to both of them before. So it'll be tough.
But I believe she can go all the way.
Yay

Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"

Re: Paris QF; LenaD def. Petkovic 3-6 6-4 6-2

First time to see Petkovic and she was very impressive. She even had some good moments in that last set despite the scoreline. Elena is still finding her form after a long layoff, but Andrea--well, if she can keep playing like this, she'll score some more big wins.

But Lena moves on to the semis.
