I would say some Flavia's haters and some VIka's hater, who tried to pass this match as crap, but yeah, we did a great job

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

I think Osaka is indoor actually.
I would've preferred her to take a week off and play her last tournament in Europe though.

A little late on the analysis but this I agree with...

And she was clearly upset during the match, suggesting that she was trying her best but couldn't really PLAY her best.
She had her chances in the first set. I wasn't expecting her to win at all especially with Vika's return game but it's a shame she wasn't able to capitalize on those chances. Serving that way wasn't going to make you win a set against a top player especially if it's Vika (one of the best returners ever) on the other side. Nonetheless, it was nice she still stayed with Vika somehow though it was obvious Vika was far from her best.

Anyways good to know she's still playing more tournament before the year ends. It would be interesting to see how she plays after this USO dream run. TBH though I really am just glad she finally got that SF so not expecting much after this.

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

What an exciting draw in Tokyo

With Daniela and Caro in the first two rounds, you'll never know what is possible.

Welcome, Flavia, to the "Great Champion" club

With her “Step out of the way, boys” strut and her intemperate mid-match gesticulating, this woman is a natural solo act.

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

it's an interesting draw indeed, I think it could have been easier but tbh none of the players in her section is in hotform, but as usual a lot will be upon flavia's form and head

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Flavia beat Daniela quite handily, 63 63.
Liking her chances against THIS Wozniacki.

Flavia vs. Caro used to be good matches with both of them looking good. I'll try to watch tonight.

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

Very good win. Hantuchova is in a similar situation as Flavia, really pleased she won this. 5 aces, no double faults, only 2 bps faced, but only 38% 1st serves...interesting

I might give it a go if it's on TV, I sadly am still to get my internet box from sky

I honestly believe this match might be a great quality one, but I can't decide who I want to win it, since both needs wins
