Re: Cheering thread - Estoril: R2 vs Barrois or Arvidsson!

Maybe she is still in Charleston form. It will be interesting.
Especially if she draws well in Madrid. She has a chance to do something

Elena plays Barrois. A tough match, but her Charleston form should take her thru.

Re: Cheering thread - Estoril: R2 vs Barrois or Arvidsson!

Next: Kristina Barrois. Lena met her one time before and had noticeably little defense against Barrois who made her run from side to side well behind the baseline. Last time I've seen Barrois play on clay was last year at the IdS where she employed similar tactics which took her to the final. I doubt she will change her game plan, making this an awful difficult match for Lena. Hopfeully she indeed will bring her Charleston form.


('s-Hertogenbosch 2009 1st round vs. Vesnina)

Stats:
Born September 30th, 1981 in Ottweiler, Germany
Length 1.83m (6'), weight 71 kg (157 lbs.)
Current ranking 71, highest 65 (July 26th, 2010)

No WTA titles.

H2H with Lena: 1-0
2009: 's-Hertogenbosch (Grass) 6-4 6-3

Last tournament: Marbella
32 W Kirsten Flipkens (Bel) 6-3 7-5
16 L Sara Errani (Ita) 1-6 2-6

Re: Cheering thread - Estoril: R2 vs Barrois or Arvidsson!

I watched Barrois play Radwanska in Stuttgart. She plays with a ton of spin. Extreme grip. Very tall player. Erratic.
I think if Lena plays well she should win. But its a tough match.
With Alisa next round its a brutal draw.
I wish Woz would have played lousy in the Charleston final instead of Stuttgart final.

Sure. That said i'm happy for Julia Goerges and this defeat could be a good warning for Caroline Wozniacki before Roland Garros. I think Caroline deserves to win a Grand Slam title. And for that she needs some rest.

Re: Cheering thread - Estoril: R2 vs Barrois!

Nice easy win in R1 as expected Should be good enough to beat Barrois, if she hits anywhere near top form. But is a tricky one which might take 3 sets to win.

Cirstea Kirilenko Goerges Ivanovic Cibulkova Petkovic
Paszek - Vesnina - Minella - Gajdosova - Robson - Pennetta

Re: Cheering thread - Estoril: R2 vs Barrois!

Lena

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.

This certainly is. Elena just took Kristina's serve to come back at 46 23. She only won 2 of 8 break points. She really has her chance.

Elena lost 46 36. Not a very good day but that's her second match on clay. She can't do great in every tournament.
