I chose Vinci as my winner in FITD.

Fed Cup team is going to be a mess, especially if Pennetta withdraws too.

The only way to explain this result is that Vinci must've lost on purpose. I see no way that weaponless, serveless, talentless Zahlavova should be able to defeat even the most mediocre players

I choose her in Suicide tennis. In fact, most of the users choose her...now we're all dead...

In my view, she didn´t seem so much weaponless against Venus. Plenty of winners in the first set (before Venus got injured). But I don´t know her very well.

Anyway, great win for her.

Oh god, terrible result. I don't really care about her but I have her as a card in TCG but thought that she might be useful especially on clay

I saw Sandra like 10 times as I watched live many 25k tournaments. What can I say - great backhand, good movement, great fighting spirit, good attacking game, going for a lot of winners. The bad thing is that she likes to downgrade her level of play so that she plays equal matches with nobodies ranked outside top200.
