I have to admit, that was some nice fighting out there. The spirit of Paris, I guess, and extreme DFing on her opponent's side.
Pretty sure she wasted a 4-3* 40-0 in first set, though.

R2 should be much easier now.

That was a well fought win so, Congrats! Too bad I can't extend my hopes for her beyond the 3rd round.

Birdie will probably meet Serena after this 61 64 win over Larsson.

Well done, Birdie!

20w/22ue - excellent figures for Sorane who controlled this match "da capo al fine", with a little intermezzo in the second set from 3-1 to 3-4.

Interesting fact about Sorana at RG - she lost to Azarenka, Stosur, Kusnetsova (defending champion); Na Li ( eventual champion) and Na Li ( defending champion). All are big names, but she didn't won more than 4 games in any of those matches. Maybe she will do that against Serena? I don't thing so, because Serena, at this moment can be beaten only by herself. Every single game taken from Serena is a win by itself.

Anyway, congrats Sorana and good luck!

Good win today, gets to round 3 But sadly it ends now...just hope she can win a few games v Serena. Always danger that SW can beat anyone 6-0, 6-0. A 2-6, 3-6 wud be ok!

Serena always sucks at RG, so I can only pray that she'll suck today and little Garcia will win. Or maybe SW will retire before her match with Sorana Wishful thinking

This has been a successful tournament for Sorana. Just hope she puts up a good result against Serena.

She's 0-1 against her, but this is their first meeting on clay.

is coming for your towel, too.

F that! She's a top 30 player. Her goal has to be to reach the last 16. There's no shame losing to Serena, but she has to play to win. Makarova, Kerber, Stephens, and Woz beat her. Sorana is the equal of all those players.

Her match against Serena in Stanford was terrible. Sori tried to hit winners on every shot. If she hits deep and flat, and shows patience, she has a chance. Serena will be overconfident.

unfortunately sorana will probably lose this match more because of a defeatist mentality rather than because of sporting reasons

E pe naiba!

Do you really think that playing 100% is enough for any of WTA top player to beat Serena in this current form? May Sorana playing for her life, the outcome of this match is in Serena's racket.

No, the difference is given by the attitude she'll have. She can lose 1-12 given all her resource or playing like she wishes to finish as quick as possible. But, we can say something about this only watching the match.

Caroline Garcia played a nice and courageous game against Serena but she managed to take only 3 games.
