Cincinnati 1R: McHale def. Pironkova 7-5, 4-6, 6-1

Raise your hand if you're happy that Tsveti won a set.

Total points: McHale 100, Pironkova 74. I couldn't see the match, but I get the feeling Christina was the much better player and just choked away the second. This isn't a terrible loss for Tsveti, but oh, how I would have loved to see her upset Woz....

Tsvetana Pironkova • Sabine Lisicki • Maria Sharapova
Christina McHale • Zheng Jie • Maria Kirilenko
Laura Robson • Petra Kvitova • Dominika Cibulkova
~~~
Special Mention: Jarka Gajdosova, queen headcase of the WTA

Great composure to dominate the third after choking away the second.

Putting together a nice summer. Stanford R2, Carlsbad R3, and now R2 in Cincinnati. Doing a good job beating the players she's supposed to beat. Hope she has fun against Wozniacka in the next round.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Tsvetana was god-awful on return today I don't know how she managed to win a set.

Hopefully she won't get demolished in New Haven.

Much like the typical "No seed, no win" phrase we use for Gise, this is a case of "No Venus. no win" for Tsveti. Glad she won a set.

Xtina GL against Rory's fuck buddy!

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

It always hurts watching the other tournament results for Tsveti when the second WTA QF for the year is over.

Looks like Christina did way better watching the stats.Still hurray for Tsveti for getting the second set after trailing 2-4.

83% winning on 1st set and 6 aces!Christina!
