Brisbane QR1: Karin Knapp upsets (3) Alexandra Panova, 46 62 64

Sasha had a 2:0 h2h against Karin, but both on clay. Will lose qualifier points from last year.

BARBIE

I liked the way Alexandra fought in the final set.

She had a very high 70%ish first serve % and tried apparently to work from the baseline. She even got to deuce in the final game.

I see good things from her (not groundbreaking though) coming up. Just steady success.

Re: Brisbane QR1: Karin Knapp upsets (3) Alexandra Panova, 46 62 64

Hmmm I like both of them, but I guess Karin needed this more

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Alexandra seems to still be in a slump..


Karin is a very good player, she's just been unlucky with injuries and illness. Hoping she can stay healthy this year.
