Thank goodness she got through that one. The 4th round is here for the taking for her if she plays well enough

Re: USO R2: Bartoli edges by Oprandi 6-2, 1-6, 7-5

And does that mean she moves back into the top 10 at Caro's expense?

Romina said "fuck off" to her coach?

She should win this... clearly better player in this match.

Good fight from Marion and well done figuring out Oprandi at the end.

With a looney scoreline like that, I'm guessing Marion's antics were legendary.

If Marion had lost that match, incredibly 44% of the Top Half would have consisted of players from outside the Top 50. And Woz would have still been Top 10.

is coming for your towel, too.

Re: USO R2: Bartoli edges by Oprandi 6-2, 1-6, 7-5

Terrific match, missed the second set but the third set was extremely high quality from both of them, Oprandi was giving Marion absolutely nothing and was hitting plenty of winners herself. Marion stepped it up after Oprandi got to game point to make it 5-3, hit about 5 winners over the next 8 points. Fought extremely hard for it and its great to see that back. Way less double faults than what we've been seeing but shes said she's figured out the new motion to reduce the pain in her shoulder. Very encouraging.

Win obviously meant a huge amount to her after a tough few months, ran straight back over to hug Walter after the handshake. Pretty big support from the crowd too which was nice.

Not really. Only 4 or 5 'allez's in the last 7-8 games when it got tight.
