She did it

First Slam win since AO 2008!

McHale or Bertens next. Come on Olga, let's get to the 3rd round of a slam for the first time

So so happy for Olga!!! It was worth watching for 3 hours

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

This showed Olga is in great shape. She played 3 matches to qualify, and when she lost set 2 after 2 hours, it would have been easy to give up

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Agreed, if there's something better than your fave winning is your fave winning by beating a player you dislike

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.

The only Olga that matters back on the main courts... get yourself back to top100 where you belong!

Odd, because the USO match stats said that the match favored Irina the more that the match went on, but actually it didn't. Irina seemed quite winded at the end.
