That's an important win for Alina. She moves the ball around, without hitting with power.

i don't get why Martic was rewarded WC in the first place.
she is so lucky to have Jidkova is the first round and she couldn't take the opportunity :rolleyes:

Miami IMG tournament, Petra "IMG girl" - talking about WC.

Petra was better player but lack of experience was the reason why she didnt reach 2nd round.
Still very young girl, only 16...

very rewarding. hard comeback trail, hopefully the road back to top100 will be easy enough.
clay season won't be too well for her, so she has to get the ranking up fast.

this was the best women's match of the day. really good tennis from both. jidkova pulled some amazing shots out of her ass to save bps. petra has a great game. she has a good combination of power and finesse and she is very good up at net. she has a great second serve with a lot of kick on it. in the end, it came down to a few nervous errors in the tiebreak (like a forehand at 4*-3 that should have been a winner, but instead sailed just long). petra did have a questionable call go against her while jidkova was serving to stay in the match - the ball definately skidded and it looked like jidkova thought it was good as well. based on what i've seen, luxilon is going to come down to a match between britto and martic.

btw, i got a picture with iva majoli during the match. she's dyed her hair brown (and is still working to lose some weight after giving birth :p). jen capriati is apparently coming tomorrow. jelena kostanic was also at the match.

anyways, petra has a great serve and she has the natural instinct to go for the right show at the right time, which is great because she has to much variety. she was so nervous and was really upset when she lost the match. match point was kind of unlucky because jidkova stabbed at a ball on the run and it turned into a hard low slice shot. martic sliced it deep and low, but jidkova was able to come up with the pass.

i was really impressed. i knew she was good, but i didn't think she was this good. her second serve is so hard to attack, probably one of the best i've seen from a wta player. and she actually hits real volleys :p

Never seen her play. With Eurosport not showing anything before Sunday, I don't think i will see her in this tournament.
Srebotnik is next.

God fightback this, but three sets agains the worlds 1132..........

How does she look like, is she fit?:bounce:
I was expecting her to beat Jidkova actually, 60:40 in her favour!
But I'm glad that Alina had to play good to beat her!

alina played very well. she is a good defensive player, especially off her backhand
petra is very fit, she's in great shape. i'm kind of worried because she is already pretty tall, right now she is at a good height, i don't think being any taller would help her too much because her serve is already great.
