RG R3: Kvitova def. Bratchikova 62 46 61

Phew. A good set from Bratchikova in the 2nd set, exposing Kvitova's BAD movement and staying solid for the whole set. At the end Kvitova raised her game and Bratchikova couldn't maintain her level and the results went to Kvitova's favour

A good wake-up call for Kvitova I guess it'll be more and more difficult from now on (Schiavone next probably)
at least last year's points defended

Petra's next match could be easier than this.

yes, kvitova plays a high-risk game, so UE's are natural. but so many of them she hits from a prefect position, without any need, and it's not a pretty sight. i really hope she gets this under control.

a mediocre Bratchiko can still troubles Petra i know that with Kvitova you never know as she can step and play GOAT now on, but half of the losers of this round would have finished her in a fast fashion

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Bratchikova seems to be a really nice person, I've started to like her

Well done, taking a set of Kvitova

Nina was so good for the most part.
If she only won those break points in the third set

Marion Bartoli - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Serena Williams - Venus Williams - Tamira Paszek

Far from convincing. Although I like Kvitova, she isn't living up to her ranking.

Petra is so not winning this tournament.

Nina is playing her best tennis this year. Third round, Wimbledon? She's got an interview in the "Getting To Know" section of the WTA tennis website. A real smarty.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: RG R3: Kvitova def. Bratchikova 62 46 61

Well, the opposition has drastically arisen from Barty and Ula to Bratchikova who really played and awesome match -- glad to see Petra answered the test, some luck factored for her 15-40 early in the second and the scenario could have been totally different had she been broken there --

Yeah, Petra's overall movement on clay is really not terrific.

I don't really thrust her against Schiavone but I'm not really certain this match will be a steam-rolling for Petra.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.
