yay!! that's 5 times out of 6 this year she has reached the quarters of a tournament!! 16-4 for the year and a real good shot at the semis considering myskina only got to play to 4-2 before Bartoli retired and she needed a win.

plus the faith greeny and I put in her through betting all our vcash has payed off (400 and 562 respectively)

yep it's 8. keep getting these results and she'll be back there eventually.

there were times a while back where she hardly won 16 matches in a season.

and only 1 bad loss to Kirilenko.

others

Dementieva 4-6, 6-1, 1-6 (tanked last because of heat and playing too much and Elena hottest player at that point)
Dechy 7-5, 1-6, 5-7 (many chances and Dechy should have made the final)
Mauresmo 6-4, 4-6, 3-6 (many chances)

Great start of the year by Schynder. If she can keep his up she'll have a lots of confidence come the clay court season.

If Patty keeps her good form up; this year's dirt season should
be insane with Amelie, the return of H2, Myskina defending her
RG and all those talented Euros.

I hate to say this; but alot of these names you see around
early hardcourt season won't mean a thing during dirtball
season. :devil:

Like I thought, Na Li is a good player but has difficulty in overcoming Patty.

Patty has really become more of a hardcourt player with a her game built around a big serve, which is partly why she is doing so well now and can make so many opponents choke (like today) - because they fear her serve. This game should really have taken Patty to the AO final this year.

You're aware that Patty's results on red clay have been utter crap for six straight years, right? It's probably her worst surface now, based on results. Maybe this is gonna be the year it all changes.

Good stuff from Patty. With Na's strong showing, she is now only 4 spots from eclipsing Li Fang's ranking of 36. So close!

It's only a matter of time with Na. A year ago she didn't have a ranking. Nine months later she's pushing the likes of Petrova and Schnyder to extremely tight two set matches. Sooner or later she'll get over the hump and start winning these matches.

And she's from Wuhan :worship:

(If you knew how much of a craphole the Wuhan I grew up in was, you would understand; for the record, it is really nice now)

Wuhan ? Isn't it the Wuhan mountains that were always being referred to in the movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" ?

Congrats Patty :) Good luck Na :)
