Re: ~Petra Martic~

Roland Garros 1st Round:
Petra Martic vs Michaella Krajicek
Winner plays Bartoli or qualifier.

Not a bad draw, she will have chances!
Good luck!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

At least she always gets good draw. Krajicek is injured and Bartoli's in BAD form.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

A revenge over Bartoli for their last meeting, which incidentally happened in Paris this past February, would be really nice, but it'll be tough.

Marion is defending semis there and if she is to go out, she'll only go fighting her heart out - especially in Paris. Last year she didn't have a very tough draw before she lost 3 & 3 to La Schiavo, and was even struggling (to put it mildly) against Tatishvili in R1. But this year she sucks majorly on clay (not that she's a particularly good claycourter anyway), and if Petra wakes up on the right side of the bed, she will have her chance. The good thing about this potential encounter is that it would most definately be scheduled on one of the major courts.

But of course, firt things first, she'll have to pass R1. I didn't know that Krajicek was injured, and I remember her playing quite well earlier this year.

Anyway, best of luck Petra; this sure is an interesting draw!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Brilliant scheduling by the slaters, placing Martic's match with Misa on a non-show court.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

6-2 7-5

Should have been easier. Wasted a ton of mps from 5-3 up...
Only broken once (serving for the match)

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Early in first set? Good sign that it didn't affect her, it seems so at least.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

A nice win and valuable points won, congrats Petra!

It was, though, not as convincing as I exptected, and she'll have to bring something better on court in order to take out Bartoli. It's not impossible, it actually sounds like an amazing challenge - playing an out-of-form top 10 on her home slam, but Bartoli will show up expecting a win and fighting like crazy. Their previous encounter should be another confidence booster for Petra, along with her recent form, so it could be a cracker. A tv court is, of course, expected; in fact even Philippe Chatrier Court wouldn't surprise me.

Really looking forward to this one
