:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:




Alina had 2 MPs at 5-3 in the second but choked, then saved 2 at 5-6 in the final set and was up 6-1 in the final set TB.


Alina finally makes the MD in a slam after coming so so so close at both the French Open and Wimbledon.


Alina fans - we have been through so much this year with Alina and slams but she does it finally :hug:

Man oh man, Alinka sure took the scenic route through qualies this year! I watched a bunch of her first round match on Wednesday against Ozegovic. She was down 5-3 in the third set and had to fight through some grueling rallies before finally taking that one in a tiebreak.

err damn it Su-Wei!!! So close to a main draw here!! This doesn't help her wanting to play more matches either but maybe it will teach her the lesson to play more and actually make her want it.

She pulled of an incredible win today. I watched the match. I know she should have closed it out in the second, but the 3rd set was a statement of character that not many players can duplicate. To me she is a real champion. Way to go Alina. We are proud of you. Come on now. This win should give you confidence for MD.

With this win Alina has become one of the less then 200 women to earn more then 1,000,000 dollars in their careers.The poorest millionair is Christina Torens-Valero with 1,000,772 dollars in her career and the richest so far is Steffi Graf!
