Always go match by match with Nadia - that`s what I learned

SF should really be possible though. Let`s hope for the best

Re: Nadia in the US Open Series :cheer:

Very happy Nadia reached Carlsbad SF !

The match was a mess but Nadia won, and that`s most important. The serve definitely saved her. 9 Aces, 1 DF. 1st Serve Points Won: 77%. Can`t remember the exact stats, but it was somthing like 21 Winners, 42 UEs for Nadia. Way too many stupid UEs of course. Nadia is far away from her best form. But the positive is she seemed motivated and fought hard in this match.

Cibulkova next, a MUCH better player than Lepchenko. No expectations

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Fell to Domi, 67(8) 16. Too bad, after the way she demolished her on grass a few weeks back. Still, not a bad tournament.

Nadia out in Montreal R1 to Bertens 6-3 6-7 4-6

In Cincy R1 Nadia retired when 6-7(8) 1-3 down with dizziness

Nadia at the USO

Here's Nadia's section:

(19) Petrova
Gajdosova
Halep
Benesova
Cadantu
Wozniak
[WC] Oudin
(15) Safarova

This is a good draw. Nadia has never lost a set to Jarmila Gajdosova in the three matches they've played, so she should win the first round comfortably.

Lucie Safarova is up next. Nadia leads Lucie 4:1, although Lucie won their last meeting, in 2010. Nadia has won their only meeting on hardcourt.

I`m a huge fan of Safarova too. May the better player win
