Good job Sloane sending Hypson to Melbourne

UE Hypson in Tie Break was just...

Laura clearly tensed up in the breaker.

Sloane didn't really do much more than keep the ball in play in most of the rallies, either Laura was hitting winners or UEs. Too many UEs today.

Horrendous match. It's a shame there had to be a winner.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Solid from Sloane. Her athleticism won her the match. Shouldn't be a problem with Halep in the next round.

When Robson closed the gap from 5-1 to 5-4 in the tiebreak I thought she might take it but nope. Nice effort from Sloane

That was an AWFUL match. Neither girl played well but Sloane was just less woeful.

Laura Robson

Robson is really overrated by her fans.
Pathetic

Yep. Laura beat herself with some dreadful play.

Great effort from Sloane.

Oh, Laura. She really needs to work on strengthening her mental fortitude in critical points of the match.
