Babsi...you weirdo...

she breaks Steph serving for the match at 5-4, gets all fired up and then loses every point after that...

Still, I had forgotten how handy Steph was at the net - you can see a little of Tauziat's game in her, I think......

Nice win!

Steph

It's always nice to see a player fight her way back onto the main tour and getting a slam win after fighting so hard for the last few years on the ITF tour.

Yup, I remember it well. She's also been one of the few players to sports actual specs on court...non shades

Always a good day when Barbora loses and gets her bad attitude out of the tournament, especially to someone who deserves it, like Stephanie

Great effort for Stephanie, fought back from a 1-4 deficit and kept it together very well Barbora played some great defense to break back to 5-5, but Stephanie held her nerve and stayed solid, allowing Barbie to destruct lol

First win here since 2004, great to see Steph playing some of the best tennis of her career at 31!

And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Stephanie is having a great year. Consistantly coming through qualifying, and winning matches she should.

This is good reward for the tough grind the past couple of years
