Mainly Nadya won though still a bit away from her best level. Made life too difficult for herself today. But she won :D

great match....really thought Nadia was gonna blow up after blowing sooooo many bps. But you know it: You get Silvia in tie-break late in a match and shes gonna fold.

The last set must have been high quality. Much more winners than UEs.

Silvia, I'm so sorry I wasn't there in person to support you and pull you through this one. :o :sad: I'm devastated for Silvia. :sobbing:

Wow. That was a war. Nadia on the attack to save her games was great - too many UE on silvia's games though and Silvia was impressive too. I used to think being a Patty fan was the ultimate nerve wracking experience nut watching Nadia missing 10/12 break points and then coming good in two hard fought tiebreakers must test the blood pressure more.

Nadia must have her head cut off, her body must be burned and her ashes sprinkled over a forgotten tennis court in the USA.

Though Nadya is a bit away from her best level. At her best level Nadya would have won in straight sets. And this is a very stupid remark. :o

umm, do you think Silvia was at her best today??? She has had a bad hardcourt season and really believe she should have won today!

umm, do you think Silvia was at her best today??? She has had a bad hardcourt season and really believe she should have won today!Neither was Petrova. Petrova produced the UE's and Winners.Both at their very best Petrova should win in straight sets as she did at Gold Coast. Throughout her career N. Petrova had more 6-2 6-2 wins and superior scores You shouldn't be too disappointed with Silvia's loss.

I would really love to see these two players play on grass and both at their best to prove you wrong!
