Re: ~Petra Martic~

Ah Hradecka won easily in the end 64 63.
Petra plays really bad all important points plus her serve is a disaster.
Hopefully she'll get nicer draw in Miami!

Well if you exclude the double faults and break point conversion stat, it was a pretty even match. But as tennismaster8820 said, 8 doubles (some of which were on BP's) and inability to convert majority of the chances on break points, was what decided this one. Too bad, this was a chance for Petra, but with such a bad serving day she couldn't give enough to win. This will cost her 60 points, i.e. some 10 ranking spots. In other words, if the same happens in Miami (also defending 80 points), she'll have to find a way to earn back some in time to avoid having to qualify in Paris (deadline should be around the middle of April, I think).

Re: ~Petra Martic~

no I actually saw the match and rooted hard for Petra..
It was not an even match, Hradecka exerted so much pressure upon Petra
I like to think that Petra rallied a bit due to my blatant rooting

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Surely not an easy draw, but it could've been so much worse. Hope Petra beats Kristina for the third time as well, after winning in 3 sets in Athens 50k last year (quarters) and in straights in 2009 Portoroz (R1). Both were hardcourt events as well, which must be important for this Miami encounter too. If she brings her A game to the court, she should win, but it could be tricky.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Breaks to 30, on the 2nd break point of the match, to go up *4:2!

Keep it going Petra, this match is worth 50 points (and you're defending 80, let's not forget...)

Re: ~Petra Martic~

About to serve for the set at 5:3, but...what the $%&/$%/& was that in the previous game - she got to three set points and then Barrois makes 5 points in a row and survives
