Fran :sad: her right leg was heavily taped and she couldn't play at her best for sure. Bepa should have won in 2 easy sets, but instead she made it interesting... not only by her play :tape: :lol:

As Dexter said, Vera should have won in 2 sets; there was a simple tactic to use against an injured Schivaone but she didn't use it in the opening set. And the tears came back, accompanied by some racquet throwing :o

Anyway, congrats to her.

Good effort by Fran, considering the injury - I hope she does well in the doubles :)

Lol she went mad again? :lol:tell me more about it :lol: 1st set was all over her... :timebomb: she was arguing about the calls with the umpire (I agree there were close and maybe even unfair for her but still :help: :o ), the racquet met the floor a couple of times, few tears also. classic Bepa :inlove:

I only saw the last 2 sets... and it was PAINFUL! :(

It's never good to watch a injured player but specially has a fan. Fran was on 1 leg...

And yet she made a match of it. RESPECT!

Don't play singles again though this year.

Vera was unimpressive to the extreme :unsure:

OMG Vera is just such a brainless player, it must be said. :help: :o Does she have any idea what to do against an injured player?? Every shot straight up the middle. :scratch:
Fran, why the hell did you play here? :smash:
Awful awful awful match. :sad:

I saw a bit of the last set and I agree that it wasn't a great match but although Fran was clearly conditioned, she went for her shots and sometimes she was able to create an advantage. So, even injured, she difficulted Vera's task although I also agree that Vera was not playing very well.

Anyway, congrats Vera and good luck against Pierce!

Fran played so she can clinch a spot in the YEC for doubles, of course she has to win 2 matches and hope Hantuyama doesn't win the tournament.

yes, Vera is such a brainless player who retrieves so bad :sobbing: ... :rolleyes:

its never easy playing an injured opponent who goes for all or nothing in every shot; one who plays tennis knows what I am talking about, those experiences keep making you better.

poor match by Vera, but I am sure she can improve :)

Respect to Francesca who didnt take one injury time-out after another, I hope Kveta and her qualify for the championships!

It is a shame that people never see injuries that Vera has. They always see injuries of her opponent. This is dispite the fact that after each match Vera is wering an ice pack on hrer hand. But se does not complains about it so it is not an injury. She simply enjoed to have an ice on her hand.

Vera has almost nothing to defend until Birmiingham, just a few points in Aukland.
She'll be top 10, or near it, next year
