Unfortunately I am not there, just over scoreboard.
Otherwise I would sure give more detailed report of what's going on.
That change of score was really !

I moved to Japan a week ago!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

This sure looks nice, Petra breaks right away in the second game of the 2nd set, then saves a BP in the next and goes up 3:0*

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Wow, this was a major fight from Barrois to keep it at a single break deficit.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Excellent win! Well done,Petra--congratulations.

In hindsight, it's really looking to me like Petra, after breaking into the top 100 near the end of the 2009 season, just couldn't handle the pressure and newness in 2010 of being in the limelight. It looks like she has grown and matured into her role.

This year is already a huge improvement over 2010. So far, in less than three months, she has 11 WTA Tour wins (MD and qualies) against just 7 in all of 2010.

As for her next match, I don't expect her to win it. While Sharapova is far from her best but, she is on a different level and reached the SF at IW just last week. Still, it'll be a great experience for Petra to play someone of her caliber.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Congrats Petra! Now go train the Siberian Tigress some new tricks

Jokes aside, Sharapova is an obvious favorite, but I wouldn't rule out all of Petra's chances in that match. Of course, her focus will have to be razor sharp, her defense in hyper mode, and let's not forget a dose of guts needed to beat a former #1 and a Wibledon champion. Sharapova isn't a player that she once was, and her recent matches prove that more than well - she needed 3 sets to beat Medina Garrigues in R2 of IW, for instance (but she also took out Rezain in straights). This, along with a 6:1, 6:2 trashing by Wozniacki, shows that Maria's game thrives on very active, agressive opponents, while she finds herself in trouble when faced with great defensive skills. Oh, if only this match could've taken place on clay...

All in all, great to see Petra win a chance to play such a match on this level of competition. I'm sure it'll do her good to face someone like Sharapova, and whatever happens (unless it involves some bakery products), this is already a solid tournament for Petra.

Good luck
