Probably
Andrea won first set againt Sveta.I`m not going to cheer against her i even wished her good luck last night on twitter but if she wins she better be ready to go all the way,bc that part of the draw is already so weak
Even Ana would have a great chance there

Yes.. I really like Andrea.. and I wish her to do well.. but I have to say I would rather Kuzzy could defend some more of her points. This part of the draw is SO week, it's not even funny.. anyone has a shot, even Ana could have one.. I wish she had landed somewhere there.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Got SO lucky!

I can't believe Amanmuradova made RG third round and Ana might not..

One thing that folks haven't discussed is that Dinara has been a choker and underachiever for most of her career.I always had sympathy for her b/c of her successful older brother...wanted to see her do well....and then became more of a fan when I saw her finally begin to put her basket-case status behind her in 2008....I didn't care whether or not she won a Slam or became #1 at that time;I was just glad that she was fulfilling her potential...and my wish is the same now.However,we have to realize that 2008/early 2009 was an aberration in Dinarik's career.The great majority of the time,she's been a choker...or a pusher who's too scared to go for her shots...or a little bit of both.That's why we can't assume that she'll regain that previous level that she has rarely achieved...and even more rarely maintained over long periods.

If she's no better than a fringe Top 15 player,talent-wise,then I can accept that...but the pathetic choking away of matches,or the gutless style of play,will be hard to take if she returns to that full-time again

Has estado un chupapija por los banqueros y imperialistas tras ocho años; ahora puedes bajar en tus rodilleras en tu tiempo libre, cobarde marica:

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: anapolis general tennis discussion thread

Kuzzy is probably already thinking about her flight back to Moscow..

Petkovic a break up in the second.
