The sad thing is that Hlavackova wasn't even bad.

Petra Kvitova.

It'll be interesting to see where Andrea goes from here.
She was #82 before this tournament, up 30 spots from the beginning of the year and this may bring her to the 70s or even the high 60s. She's been playing a lot of qualifiers and made the third round at Cincy a couple of weeks ago. She's been a top doubles player for a few years and this may help her singles game.
Maybe dsanders will make a thread about it.

chanda · venus (7) · serena (23) · ana (1) · vera · na (2) · domi

A big difference between Makarova and Hlavackova was showed in this match, both have great games but Hlavackova edges her in attitude. Hlavackova was really still fighting despite the scoreline, though i thought she should have broken Serena on that last game if she wasn't too desperate to get a game, though i don't blame her.

Peppering her responses with keywords like USA, proud to play for the country, happy to be back in NYC again and playing in front of you..etc
You are so right. I was just about to write this. Serena is very mindful (as she should be) of her past bad moments here (some self-inflicted). She is keen on keeping things positive, giving the other player credit for her play (true or not), and she is REALLY, REALLY trying to work the crowd and thank them for their support. She is playing to the crowd in a way she has never done before. This is a good technique and frankly it may come in handy in one of the upcoming matches.

It shows a more mature and reflective side to her personality.

Serena has always said if she is well and playing her best tennis no one can beat her and we are seeing evidence of that.

Her play in this match was freaking unbelievable.

Bring on Ana
