Madrid R2: Arantxa Parra def. Andrea Petkovic 6-2 7-6(5)

Amazing

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.

I really can't believe that this was the same Parra who barely kept any balls in play against Cabeza in Barcelona

Andrea hit too many errors and forgot that she is playing on clay. The surface is very fast in Madrid, but some more slices or drop shots to break the rythm of the Spanish would have done well...

Tough battle. Some proper claycourt tennis being played out there and in the end, the better player prevailed.



Mladenovic • Cîrstea • Lisicki • Cetkovská • Konjuh • Garcia • Krunić • Robson • Tsurenko • Görges • Stosur • Kvitová • Konta • Ivanović

Parra Santonja with 59% of first serve IN?!

She exchanged the serve with Martinez Sanchez
