SHINOBU wins marathon match!!!

CONGRATULATIONS Shinobu on having won the longest match so far in the women's draw.

It was a gutsy performance and you held your nerve despite Hantuchova's taking like 45 seconds between pts.

Dani, regroup and eat some strawberries AND CREAM, girl!

I was watching this on the BBC, and despite losing the first set 6-0 she dug deep and kept scurrying about trying to win the points It was all about who wanted it more, and it was clear that it was Shinobu who had more desire, and I was really happy when she won as it was clear that she has much more desire to win, and this was clear during the match! She was clearly putting in more effort (or at least seemingly) than Daniela, which paid off for her

Also, between some points Daniela began to cry, and she was probably trying harder to hold the tears back instead of trying harder to win the match! She made some silly and costly errors throughout the match, and this is usually when she began to cry

Anyway congratulations to Shinobu, who definately deserved it And Good Luck in R3
