Quebec City QF: Goerges def. Hlavackova 6-7 7-5 6-2
Some people are calling this the best match of Quebec. If that's the standard we have, god help us.
Hlavackova was just woeful/abysmal/pathetic/shambolic/horrendous on break point conversions at key moments, most notably at 1-2* 40-15 in the third (she blew five break points alone here and Julia took her first game point).
She needs to stick with doubles. When Hradecka isn't dumping her, that is. Every season undermines her credibility as a singles player who has never cracked the top fifty.
If you can't beat Julia in this year, her worst of all time, when can you beat her, Andrea, especially with a 7-6 4-2 lead? This was the easiest chance she had to make a semi in her career probably, and she blew it with superhuman anti-aplomb.
She won just three of the last 14 games.
Andrea, bash yourself on the head with five tennis rackets. Can't do any more harm than you have to your own career. You're 28, pull your finger out of your arse. You have maybe two more seasons to even get close to winning a WTA final, even the most mediocre one.
