Why is Gabriel Urpi out?

Glad Flavia pulled through. Patches of great play from her.

mental strenght was missed tonight in Doha...did anyone know where those two girls left it?

anw Flavia did a nice job closing it out, she had more winners and less errors and still was one step away from losing

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

My impression of the match was that it was surprisingly low quality, although nevertheless entertaining for its competitiveness and the likability of the players involved. That impression was pretty much confirmed when Flavia was interviewed. It was pretty obvious from the interview that while relieved and happy to have got through Flavia was not pleased at all with how she played.

Flavia!
Awful quality match really. Flavia choked away the whole second and tried to choke again in the third, but Domi did a better work at it.
Anyway the draw is quite good for Flavia, if she finds the form she needs, because of the recent stop with the back injury, she could go further.

And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And silence that speaks so much louder that words,
Of promises broken

^ flavia is a rythm player so i'm not surprised she didn't play well

terrible match both girls tried with efforts to lose it...Domi successed in it

Good for Flavia's confidence but I think she won't go further here in Doha

What a bad Doha day for Slovak players. Domi sucks lately and Daniela never wins after having won Pattaya though

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro
