Now I know why she lost 26 16 to Floris
Pathetic to lose against Craybas on clay, even more pathetic that she came back from 1-4* to 4-4 in 3rd set, just to lose serve again!
Looked so great in February, finally back in shape and now after her injury she seems far away from that shape, no need to mention that she gained a lot of weight again while she was injured

Re: Bastad, R2: Craybas def. Groenefeld 3:6, 6:0, 6:4

Oh dear Anna

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

It will take Anna some time to round out into form. Given how awful she was against Oudin a couple of weeks ago, winning a round at a tour event is a big step forward.

Really glad that Jill took advantage of a kind draw to reach her first quarterfinal of the year. Unfortunately, she's been Flavia's bitch in their other three matches, but either way she's in a position to re-enter the top 100 very soon.

The great and outstanding veteran Jilly is still able to compete on the WTA-Tour (aces included, ok Anna is not a sophisticated contender at all at the moment - but QF is still a good achievement ).

Top 100 still within reach.

Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishing I was somebody else instead.

Jill is playing decently on clay recently.

Yes, great result for Jill. But Spaghetta will destroy her tomorrow. That's for sure
