Nothing great in the game but effective on serve. Marion lacked a bit of power in her shots. Glatch has nothing to beat her, no assets, Marion should have destroyed her more than that.
I hope her form will improve and go crescendo :). Congrats Marion !

Congrats to Marion. :)

But what's up with Alexa? When she did so well in Forest Hills 2 years ago, I hoped that she might be a bright prospect for American tennis, but she has been quite a disappointment since then.

So you think losing 2 games was too many?

Could someone find the thread where Jon Wrtheim or someone said that Glatch can pull off an upset here?
I said there that if Glatch won more than 4 games, I would never ever doubt him


This just gives me so much confidence :p :D

She definitely needed a win like that after her summer and that last match she played v. Elena. Glad to see she's clearly feeling better.

Alexa was a bright prospect, but then got into a bad motorbike accident and has never recovered since. I'm still hoping she can put it together, because pre-accident she was playing some nice top-50ish tennis.

Destroyed her in the game, I mean. Alexa gave her the match with her stupid mistakes. Marion wasn't aggressive enough to make it an impressive win.

Wow.I didn't know about this. But I can be quite sure this accident happened after her victory over an in-form Morigami in 2005.

That's a pity,really.

Alexa was badly injured in a motor scooter wreck a while back and missed a lot of practice and chances to play.

Didn't really expect her to win, but I was hoping she'd do better. Still, at least she's on the courts again.

I think she'll regain her form by this time next year.
