Disgusting passive play by Sophie.

She really had no reason for losing this match...

Happy for Petra but really it was such a bad performance from her.
She was so passive and without energy, just blah.
Really lucky to draw Ferguson, who was even worse.
What's with all those screams?

Re: Birthday girl Martic beats Bi-polar Ferguson 7-6 0-6 6-3

Sophie is a rubbish player when the chips are down. You would think at 24 years of age, and with 5 previous Open experiences behind her she would be able to hold her nerve, but no. Typical Aussie choker. Total head case.

Happy birthday for Petra tomorrow. Good win for her, but have to say I wasn't very impressed with her hitting. She has nice variety in her game though and not afraid to come in to net, which was good to see.

Overall, one of the worst women's Slam matches I have ever seen

Sophie, this was your match. Nerves got the better of you.

Is anyone else other than me surprised by this result? Ferguson is too mentally weak to win at GS level, it's a shame really. Even after the 6-0 set you just knew panic would set in and she'd find a way to lose.

I was never cheering for Sophie, she irritates me.
