USO 3R: Tsveti "Karlovic" Pironkova def. Soler-Espinosa 6-1, 6-7 (3), 6-3

Tsveti's serve saved her, even though Soler-Espinosa wasn't playing that well.

10 aces, 81% first serves won.

Silvia fought hard to come back from what should have been a straight-set defeat (trailed 1-6, 0-3), but Tsveti showed her experience in clutch moments. Huge backhand pass at 4-3*, 30-0 in the 3rd to essentially clinch it. And the serve didn't fade as much as it usually does. The 10-minute heat break certainly helped with that.

Viva la Grassonkova!

This should have been over about an hour sooner than it was though.

Well, that green color on the court confused Tsveti. She really thinks she is at Wimbledon.

Hell to the Yeah

Scratchy at times but she served well.

Tsveti has some very vocal support over in the US

Im expecting her to get a bit further, once she passes the second round hurdle she normally goes deep.

Yeah, with a double break in the second

The result was still NID.

Please, do not tell her it's not Vinas who is waiting for her in the QFs. She obviously got confused and that's why she is steamrolling there so well.

No, she fell behind 5-4 and struggled hang on. Tiebreaker wasn't close.

No MPs in second set.

Pironkova got outplayed from the baseline for most of the time at the end of the match. Luckily for her, her serve was working well and SSE is a local scrub.

At 6-1 3-0 winner count was 27-9 for Pironkova. Finished with 38-20.

Beating Giorgi, Morita and SSE for a R4 at a Slam is certainly a nice draw.
