At least one German who is consistent, mentally strong and you can rely on. Feels so good. Have to say I`m really happy with her performance. Voskoboeva is a dangerous opponent, hitting very hard and deep. She was playing Top 20 if not Top 15 tennis in 2nd set. Angelique is such a fighter, very impressive. She was down 2-5 in 2nd set, also Voskoboeva had 3 SPs. But Angie never gave up, some brilliant tennis from her when needed. And won the match 6-2 7-5. Vor Angelique`s Einstellung und mentaler Stärke kann man nur den Hut ziehen. Gegen Kuznetsova erwarte ich ein enges Match, die ist fit, fühlt sich frisch, auf dem Weg zurück und immer gefährlich. Auf keinen Fall unterschätzen.
Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour." Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Those were pretty difficult conditions - really hot but very breezy too. Both players got pretty annoyed with the line calling at times and Angie was just generally pissed off in the middle of the second set (I think she definitely let herself get distracted after Galina took a long bathroom break after the first set and then an MTO in the second when up 3-2).
She was holding her right hip and stretching it out after every point for a few games in the middle of the second, which was a bit worrying, but she actually played her best tennis after that and seemed ok by the end of the match so hopefully it's nothing. She was really nice to a few fans at the end too .
I have to say, if she does get past Sveta, there's no way she's beating Errani.
