yes vera would have been a very good choice for sure.What is vera partner at the open?
dont like the shedule, it will be a looong day for alize tomorrow,will be even tougher
well she let a positive message on her facebook page saying that she s ready for that tough first match against schiavone,that she loves the place there and the australian open,that she ll fight to have the chance to stay a little bit more in the tournament.
soooooooo close alize but in the same time the match was sooooo far to be won cause schiavone is a hell of a fighter
alize played some great tennis in the first,schiavone was annoyed about her game. Then second set, the italian started to fight more and be agressive coming to the net.
She was 4-1, alize looked tired and passive. Then she woke up and fought back to make it 4-4 and then 5-4;
This service game from schiavone was so nasty but amazingly well played
the only regret for alize is that game at 5-5 she was leading 40-15 to finally get broken.
Since then she wasnt the same anymore and schiavone cruising to the victory.
Alize must be sad right now but she s not the first player losing to schiavone, (azarenka,henin and even my amélie
she can improve in the next weeks, probably gonna play fed cup against USA.
