I don't care what everyone says. But I really want to thank Sexlana and Fransexa for such an absolutely awesome match! They really made my weekend!

Re: Schiavone's legacy

Good things do come to people who work hard.
Often she was known as the hardest working player on tour, and she's just reaping what she sowed.

Re: Schiavone's legacy

Part of her legacy is how she improved with age, and like this match, how in big moments, she learned how to raise her game

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

All credit to Kuznetsova she has fought back amazingly too.

These ladies are so amazing.

Re: Schiavone's legacy

I think when both of these players are retired, this 3rd set will be talked about as part of both their legacies
Both played awesome on big points

AO R4 Fran def. Sveta: 6-4 1-6 16-14. Best match ever!

No words
Almost 5 hours.

Fran saved 6MP's over several games. Coming back from 0-40 once.
At 8-8 fran led 0-40 on sveta's serve and at 30-40 Sveta hit a super short half volley and fran got to it, hit a clean winner, but couldnt not hel but touch the net, giving svetaa the point and eventually the game.

The psychial and mental strength displayed by both was second to none. No-one can ever dispute that they fully DESERVE to be Grand Slam champions.

Drama at its best
Nothing will ever come close.

Fran is a legend. Plain and simple.
How the hell did she win that match?

I encourage anyone who didnt see this match to watch it (praying it was recorded)
One of the bet matches the WTA has and ever will see

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Thumbs up (6) Francesca Schiavone overcomes (23) Svetlana Kuznetsova in epic, 6-4, 1-6, 16-14

6 MPs saved by Fransexa

Schiavone is just incredible.

Epic!

I mean, what more is there to say?

Franny is just a fucking amazing athlete. She would make Bolt proud.
Sveta seems different than usual - seems less likely to fold like a cheap tent when down.

It's a pity there had to be a loser.
Fucking amazing match. Probably deserved prime time at RLA, but the crowd sure got their tickets worth.
Both players should request for bonus prizemoney.
