I can only hope for a good result against Smashnova. I think the courts should be in Marie's favour, but you never know!

Good luck!!!

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Looks like it was a close match. Unfortunately with the better end for Anna.

Just to bad MGM couldn't held serve when she was up a break in the first set....

Better luck next time MGM

zero aces, but nine double faults by MGM!!

break point conversions: 4 of 8 (50 %), while it was 5 of 6 (83 %) for smashnova.
I guess this was the main difference.

it's nice to see she can push those top 20 players. it's not so nice to see that she often ends losing tight matches (remember the match vs. schiavone at FO?).

Good effort, but she should start to win those matches...

I have to add something that I read in a swiss newspaper yesterday: apparently marie was not fit at all, she had both her thighs taped and apparently had problems bending her knees!! under these circumstances, her performance was really good (she had setpoint at 5:3!!)

i hope it's not too bad and she'll get well soon.

Wow, I didn't know that!

Good performance indeed from her! Or maybe a bad one from Anna, which wouldn't be bad cos she's playing Amanda in the 2nd round
