:eek::banana:

Huge win for Lana. She was down 0-3* in the second and won 6 games in a row. She had a good run in a 50K in Hawaii, making it to the qf from qualies, beating a seed along the way, but then she lost a match she should have won.

:woohoo:

still asking why Tat went all the way to Columbia to play on her worst and least favourite surface :rolleyes:... she should have played 50k in St.Paul instead...

I'm impressed that Tanya hasn't used her IPR yet (apart from the AO)... playing qualies has given her much more match play than she'd otherwise have got, and more players should swallow their pride and follow her example, because she's performed creditably so far this year.

Apart from here, obviously. Congrats Lana, now please lose to Edina :)

maybe she's saving them for Tier I and GSs, since then number of IPR is limited...

i followed live scores and i'm sure she was down 0-3 because that is when i said that she was falling apart and i'm 100% sure she was playing panova. both players played two match today because of the rain yesterday...

Panova played Cortez in the 1st round of qualifying. Popadic was in the 2nd round ;)
