Re: Christina McHale

7-6(4) 6-3 She put up a really good fight though! I think she can win a match at the open, depending on who she draws.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Christina McHale

That's a great fight against an older, more experienced player. It sucks that she held set point in the first set and lost it, but matches like these build character and experience at this level is good no matter the result. Now she can head to Flushing Meadows and hit with some bigger, better girls and be prepared going into her second GS main draw.

Re: Christina McHale

She did well! Despite the loss, there are good things to take from playing close with a good player.

Good luck at the USO!!!

Hopefully some pictures of her pop up from this match.
