The match was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests. Many long games, and Annika won all the important points. Karin wasted countless GPs and only converted 2 of her 8 BPs, Annika converted 5 of her 8 BPs. It was definitely a match Karin could have won if she had made the important points. She is the better player imo. Very talented, hit many great winners. Really impressive tennis. But Annika was more solid and mentally stronger. I guess Karin was also tired from her marathon match with Pfizenmaier yesterday. The positive thing about Annika is her fighter attitude, her good footwork/movement and she is no headcase. But we have seen again today her potential is limited. Can`t see her beating Petkovic unless Andrea has a complete off-day.
Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour." Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
