What a terrible loss

I'm so sad...frustrated...disappointed...angry

Looks like Nastya couldn't deal with the pressure and conditions...and to blow that lead to a qualifier best suited to faster surfaces...stunning

I thought she was done choking

Justine out too...and Petra, Daja...four of my big favorites

Maja, Anna, Iroda my favorites left...looks like they will all lose their first round tomorrow

What a terrible tournament

I am on der Tvitter, accumulating haters. https://twitter.com/Hurleytennis

I am not surprised. In fact, I kinda expected that. It is very difficult to expect anyone to perform well at a Slam to which they come under pressure of expectations early in their career. Look, Dokic is still struggling. She won a bunch of titles, but since she won the first title, she is struggling in Slams. Henin and Clijsters came as favourite at this RG, and here we go, one is gone, the other just escaped. Mauresmo was considered a serious contender at last year French Open for the first time in her career. First round loss. Upcomers tend to surprise when they come to play Slam with no expectations. But since expectations are already there - they struggle.

I expected this one, and hopefully she'll do better at W.

Sure am disappointed, more so because she was well ahead. Plus, she was thought of as a threat by other posters whose fav she faced later in the draw.

Nastya, take a break and good luck in Missouri and Wimbledon.

very distressing loss, especially as Nastya'd been so consistent this season. A huge chance to get to the QFs... I wonder if that's what made her choke?

A horrible, horrible, horrible result Hopefully it was just a fluke bad loss and she'll storm the grass season.

What's my baby Nastya doing on Page 2?

Her grass season:
Birmingham, Eastbourne and Wimby...

what the heck is she doing in WTT! She should be practicing on grass. Want a bold prediction? 2 quarterfinals and a 4th R in Wimby

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!
