Dallas R2: Baltacha outlasts Goerges 2-6 7-5 7-6

Bally

That second set was a full on fuckery fest Julia broke to go up 2-0 then Bally won 5 games in a row to go 5-2 then started to choke. Julia pulled it back to 5-5 but Elena somehow managed to edge it by avoiding a tie-break.

Don't even get me started on the 3rd...

But a win is a win and I'm very proud of our Elena - as usual pure guts and determination. Another higher level scalp to add to her growing list

Dude. Baltacha is fucking nuts.

And Julia, seriously, who loses to her?

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

Julia's movement and serve are not good enough to be a HC baseliner. Anyone but a pusher is a bad match-up for her.

Julia...that was sitting there to be taken! Oh well. Good win for Baltacha, though I think she takes too long between points.

Re: Dallas R2: Baltacha outlasts Goerges 2-6 7-5 7-6

Can we change the thread title to "Baltacha and her Texas linesman friends screw Julia over 2-6,7-5,7-6" ??

ridiculous line calls. they all should be fired now.

that match was absolute bs. Baltacha makes Wickmayer look classy. I can't stand her at all. What a b****

So upset now I can't take this dumb result. Julia is better than that. The first set wall what Julia is made of. I don't even care though, better that she is rested for New York. We'll see what she can do then.

Not sure about the call but Elena was up 4-1 in the final set so it's not as if this stroke of bad luck line call made the absolute difference. It wold have made it 4-3 in the tie-break and I'm confident Elena would have still seen it through

The line calls were worth it because we got to listen to some priceless commentary from Julia. She's so sexy when she gets mad. If only she would play better in those situations....

But Baltacha has been added to my hate list. You can act classless when you start winning, OK?

Great win for Bally!!!!! Up and down match, but it's all about who has the guts in the end. Bally usually doesn't do well on the US hardcourts, but she has found her groove. Well done!

Oh no, I am not talking about 1 line call, i'm talking about at least 5. And all after Julia started choking which really pisses me off.
May this be a one year tournament.

and again as for baltacha, screaming a big whatever right in Jules's face with an obscene fist-pump right after Julia double-faults?? i mean really...what a joke of a person.
I guess it's nice that she is soo shocked to beat a player who is far better than her, it must really make her feel like something for once.

Wow, pretty shocked. Thought Elena would find a way to choke this for sure (she almost did) but she had luck on her side Keep going Bally!
