Glad to see at least one Romanian doing well. First win against Na.

Sori should have a really good chance against Makiri as long as she stays mentally strong and we don't have a repeat of the third round of the Australian Open. Her quarter is opening up nicely.

Good luck to Sori in the next round. I think Kiri might be too consistent for her though (or that Sori might self-destruct).

OMG Sori

Got thrashed in doubles though, but this s more important

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

She lost to Stosur/Dellacqua though, who are a good team and who will hopefully do well at the Olympics. I just really hope she keeps it together tonight/today. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be on Australian TV.

Sorana's currently down 46 03. Went downhill after a 6 minute game to begin the second, where Sorana failed to break Mikiri.

5-1 down. When on earth did Kiri get so loud?

It seems as though Kiri's focus and intensity is higher than Sori's, as I suspected. I can''t see a way back for Sorana at this stage of the match.

46 16. At least she matched her best ever effort here. Now time to prepare for the US hard courts.

Horrible performance , her 1st serve was crap and she was SO BAD at the net! Of course I never expected much from the zombie who lost while leading with 5-0 in a third set. I'm just wondering how bad Na Li played!

The problem with Sorana is that you can't say she played like that the round before, but she defeated Pauline quite easily as well before, I don't know.

R3, I take it.

Well this is the second time I see her play against Kirilenko and I think she will never defeat her. Maria seems to be somewhat smarter , tennis wise at least.

Let's be honest there, Alin.

Who doesn't?
