Re: Dubai R1: Flava Flav Pennetta def. Melinda Czink 64 61
Too vulnerable with her movement out-wide to the backhand from Czink. Anytime the ball was driven deep into her backhand corner, she looked instantly incapacitated, having neither the footwork nor hand-skills to dig out a decent enough defensive shot.
Some nice flashy hitting, but it's rarely sustained from Czink. Her backhand can get late and mishitty. It's too much of a weakness against Pennetta who is able to hit with depth, decent margins and change direction well. Pennetta always exposes these kind of players, very much like she did against Kleybanova last week.
