Klara is a tricky opponent and a great counterpuncher. I'm not saying she'll beat Justine, but she won't be a pushover. She could possibly take Justine to 3 sets if Justine plays the way she did today?

Good win for Klara, her first slam win since she reached the 2nd round at the FO 2 years ago.

Decision time for Kata, this was the last tournament, where she could use her protected ranking I think, so now she has to choose whether to play the big tourneys and concentrate on doubles or focus on a return to let's say top 50 in singles.

No.

Kata She had 4 SPs in first set but didn't take it.
Hopefully this isn't over of her singles carrer.

Rampre – Hercog – Kvitova – Lepchenko – Date Krumm – Kerber – Mattek-Sands – Hsieh – Cetkovska – Stosur – Kolar – Makarova – Lucic-Baroni - Safarova – Lisicki - Muguruza - Zahlavova Strycova

Klara winning a match in Grand Slam. It must not have happened for 2 years or something!

Katarina may have to go down the doubles route. She's ranked #280 in singles at the moment. Given how well she's doing in doubles and how often she makes it to the weekend stages, playing the qualifying for WTA events may be difficult and at this stage of her career, I can't see her wanting to drop back down to challengers on a regular basis.
