WWW US Open 4R: [12] Ivanovic vs. Pironkova

H2H is 1-1, but they haven't played since 2008, when, remarkably Tsveti won in 3 sets on clay.

I have nfi about this one. I feel like Pironkova's bh will give Ana fits, and she served well today whereas Ana could have been much better.

Please Ana

Hopefully Ana but neither are beating Serena sadly. Ana needs a QF appearance bad though after this rough year.

Please, this is Ana we're talking about. She's losing 62 63.

Pironkova 6-1 6-1
She's in GOAT mode again, maybe she'll even pull a Vinci....

Has there been a worse 4th rd match in recent memory? The thought of either in the QF is gross.

well the recent worst ones i could think of was the 2009 US Open, you had Oudin vs Wozniacki and Wickmayer vs Bondarenko, and they were all QF matches

Ivanovic in 2

Yes, several in the last four Slams:

Wimby: Radwanska vs. Giorgi
FO: Kvitova vs. Lepchenko
FO: Kanepi vs. Rus
USO 11: Petkovic vs. Suarez Navarro
USO 11: Niculescu vs. Kerber

Although it defines how you define "bad." Ana-Tsveti will be filled with errors but also crushed forehands, big serves, ajdes and momentum swings, and it is likely to be a competitive match.

Let's watch Tsvetana wasting this opportunity

Victoria Azarenka

Konjuh - Kvitova - Lisicki - Martínez Sánchez - Muguruza - Serena - Venus - Vinci

Cirstea - Date-Krumm - Kanepi - Krunic - Mattek-Sands - Mladenovic - Puig - Safarova - Schiavone - Shvedova - Suarez Navarro - Vogele
