Re: Cheering thread: Melbourne - R1 vs Garcia / WD R1 with Makarova!

AO draw:

Varvara Lepchenko (USA) [21] vs. Polona Hercog (SLO)
Caroline Garcia (FRA) vs. Elena Vesnina (RUS)
Mathilde Johansson (FRA) vs. Q-Akgul Amanmuradova (UZB)
Silvia Soler-Espinosa (ESP) vs. Roberta Vinci (ITA) [16]

I don't see why Lena can't get to the 4th round; we'll see how she is mentally coming off her biggest victory.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Why Slava is not in her section?

She must be very motivated for AO. But even with the win, caution always is required with her..

I had a fear Lena wouldn't be mentally ready for this match.

Dropped first set to Carolina, 36.

Re: Cheering thread: Melbourne - R2 vs Lepchenko / WD R1 with Makarova!

Intriguing second round against Lepchenko.

On paper, Varvara is the favorite, as a seed, but she's never been past the first round until today. Their h2h is even at 1-all, with Varvara winning the one on hc way back in 2005.
