Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

4-4, easy hold for MJ; she's serving much better ... hope Akgul's not getting nervous now at this crucial stage of the match, but surely she must have some butterflies ...

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Wow, that was an AMAZING hold -- long, long game -- very proud of our gutsy Akgul here!

62 54 ... time for a nice, easy break!
But MJ will be fighting like mad in this game, going for broke. Hold her off, Akgul!

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

I can't even think that far ahead yet! Such an amazing breakthrough for Akgul. Great serving!
Hope she can get some new fans from this. Though most people are only thinking about the MJMS surprise loss. Just as well; let Akgul slip under the radar for several more rounds.

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

But i don't get wise with Akgul. First she plays a very good Rom and Madrid quali just to lose to GRANDIN in the first qualiround in Warsaw and at least she's going to Rg and defeats one of the little underdog favortites wit 7 Aces and more than 30 winners.

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Didn't realize MJSM was really suffering with a nasty neck injury. What a shame for her. That's what happens when you follow a match on livescore instead of finding a livestream.

Elisse said Akgul was playing really, really well. Hope she can last a few more rounds; why stop here?
