oh, sorry for opening another thread
vinci worked well, i disagree regarding safarova's handling with the slice - she was abit lazy with her footwork, especially with the shorter balls which she might have been able to attack with better preperation.
she also failed miserably to deal with the slices at the net many of the times, including the last few games.
vinci was SO into this, and so proud. delighted for her, but safarova really took it to heart. i hope she builds on a good clay season though.
in the end, i think koukalova would have been a better choice for the czech team - it's a bit of a pity they played two similar players, and not a good risk taken by thier captain.
vinci should be delighted - she deserves it, and she is well headed into top10 - i think it's quite safe now.
two italians in top10, RG winner and RUP - this is so exciting for italian tennis lovers, as they have suffered lengthy years with #11 ranked CH and alot of "almosts".
