So Nadia will be the girl who traditionally sends Sharapova home before USO QF? Do it

Tough for Lucie.

But I knew, she was going to crawl back during that last service game (running off consecutive points), just to DF on her second serve to lose the match.

That's so Lucie-fer!

Nadia

Can not wait for her showdown with Masha. Nadia has been slowly building recently, return to the top 10 next year should not be ruled out. She looks super fit as well.

NID. Even though the rest of her game has dissolved, Petrova is still probably one of the top 10 servers on the WTA, and she was going up against one of the worst returners... I'm actually surprised the scoreline is that competitive.

Re: USO R3: Petrova def. Safarova 6-4, 7-5

i wouldnt bank on nadia being the one to send masha home. The h2h 8-1 in maria's favor and the one win nadia has over her is a walk over. What might help nadia is that she will be the first quality opponent maria has come across but i think it would still be a miracle if nadia actually pulled off th upset

Yes, I agree that Nadia looks super fit.
She is great to watch when playing like this, isn't she? 6 years on from her prime and she is still one of the best 16 players in the world on a regular basis.
As for Maria, she could beat her. She has the serve and the groundies and if Maria has one of those off days where she's blasting balls into the stands and yipping then Nadia could finally beat her.

In the second set, Lucie was up 4-3 and 40-30 on her own serve and double-faulted
