I wrote an entry for my blog about the upsets of the first week, but I pulled a great focus on what I think may be one of the most spectaculr matches of the whole open, the 4th round clash between Flavia and Simona...if both play well this may actually be a classic
Not really, during her peak she was quite bashed.
In GM i have already seen some posters who used to bash her while today they are happy for her success
This site is full of idiots...
I think things start to change once players make it back from injuries. Also, when they are ranked low again and try to fight back. Probably also because they are not a threat to top players week in week out anymore. And I agree, if (just speculating here) she beat Vika, people would probably start hating her again.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!
That had everything. Amazing ground strokes, orgasmic hands () at the net and choking (what would be a Flavia match without choking!).
She can't have a mental slip like that again because she won't be as lucky. Credit to her and her team to calm down after the break and close it out.
The Vinci match is hers to lose. If she can serve as she has been then I think she can pull it out. However Vinci has been a tough opponent in the past and Vinci is much fitter and better now than their last meetings. Should be an interesting match!
