Re: ~Petra Martic~

Lost the first set 6:2, overall they're being outplayed fair and square. Zheng can't do anything from the net, Petra's forehand side is getting molested and her serve doesn't mean that much in doubles. Not a nice performance by any stretch. Hopefully things will get better in the 2nd.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Lost 6:2, 6:4. They were a bit unlucky not to have broken in the second for 5:4 after being 2:4 down, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. Overall their opponents were quicker, better prepared and more organized, I'm guessing they've been playing doubles together more often than Martic/Zheng. They had solutions for virtually every major situation, efficiently targeting right under the feet of Martic/Zheng or into their bodies quite often. The better team definately won today althogh Martic/Zheng have put in a decent fight in the 2nd set.

In general, I wouldn't call this week a great success story for Petra, but it's a solid start to this mini tour. Good luck in Taipei

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Is it true that Petra had 7 match points ?

I haven't seen all of them, but I do know of four. Terrible enough to witness.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra's draws for the first round(s) in Taipei:

Nara v Friedsam
Martic v qualifier

Martic/Zheng v Kania/Solovyeva


Looks like a draw with which she could do more than in Nanjing. Let's hope I'm right.


GL Petra!

Good luck!

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Morita reached the final of Nanjing and then retired after losing the 1st set, while Doi/Xu have won the doubles title.

So typical for Croatian players...

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra gets to play Kerkhove (WTA 249, c-h 247), whose results this year are hardly impressive (one QF on a 75k is pretty much the highlight of her 2013), but she does have one solid result lately, a win over Riske. Of course, I still think Petra shouldn't have problems advancing here. OOP for tomorrow is not out yet.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Second match of the day on C1, should start around 6:30AM CET if the starting times of today's matches can be used as reference (Ajla was third on her court today and the match started around 7AM CET but tomorrow first match starts an hour later than today).

Good luck Petra!
