Nothing to be ashamed of. Tsveti played well in defense and her serve was incredibly solid in the first couple of games, but Bartoli was just better in every aspect of the game today. Still a nice week for Tsvetana, who finally managed to score 2 consecutive wins!

Time has just began
There is nothing old between
Cars are running by
The world has stopped...

really nice match. Marion is fitter than ever, I thoght she will be completely dead after Paris.

Tsveti is playing not bad. I saw her in Eilat in fed cup and she was in good form.

Re: Doha R3: Bartoli def, Pironkova 6-3, 6-3

Well, Tsvetana was absolutely mediocre in this match. She tried to slice the ball all the time and the ball keep on jumping high enough for Bartoli, I don't get it why she was avoiding it. She, as well, kept on just bashing the ball. Her serve speed was good, but it's direction was quite predictable. I'm quite disappointed at her.

Bartoli did a great job though. She served well and actually constructed the points.
I'm not quite sure if she hits the ball much harder than Tsvetana (Tsvetana looked like just pushing the ball back almost all the time) as Caro said a month ago that Tsvetana was "hammering the ball and thus it was hard playing against her".

Kudos to Tsvetana for raising the level of play at the end of the first and the second set, but it was already over, she needed to show that game during the match to have the slightest chance.
