laura played a pretty good match saving 2 match points at 5-4, but sania's forehand helped her at important points:)
congrats:bounce:

I am so happy she has overcome the tricky encounter:yeah: Sania played pretty well except for the choke when she lost ground from 4-1 and allowed Laura to close in at 5-5 but I am happy that she pulled through :yippee:

C'mon Sania, take out Anna:armed:

Sania. :woohoo: She tried her not to win in the 2nd, but thankfully to no avail. :tape: What a great point that gave Sania a MP. :bounce: She looked mighty pleased with the win. Good luck vs Anna, beat her finally! It's the best place to do it! :devil:

Laura. :hug:

Good, fun match to watch, some great points from both.

Laura is a solid player and good fight to come back from *41 in the second.

Sania had 2MPS at *54 *40/15 but hit some ugly forehands to choke away the lead, but broke Granville and held.

Amazing point Sania won to set up match point #3 :worship:

laura :hug:

She didnt do that badly to be called pathetic :shrug: She had to create opportunities to finish points esp with Laura retrieving well, so I thought it was pretty consistent match from Sania except for the last few games

Good win. Mirza committed too many errors. She still played well, but she really needs to clean up her game. She's moving better than ever, however.

I am not a very rational fan. I have a pathetic attitude and I expect a perfect match even if it is impossible. :o

To be fair she was more consistant than first round but she has to play better to win 3rd round. i was looking the match in that perspective.

Did you watch the full match? If yes, which channel showed the entire match? Here in US, we only got to see on USA channel partly.

Well, from what they showed on USA (from 4-1 in the second set) Sania was ordinary at best. I think that was mainly due to nerves closing out the match, but still very patchy stuff and sketchy shot selection. Many forehands sprayed. That said, she did also play a few very well constructed points, and finished more points at net than I've probably ever seen. Serve was pretty good too (first serve anyway). Laura blew an opportunity to take a 6-5 lead with a stupid error, but Sania really shouldnt have even been in that situation to begin with, so I'm glad she pulled through.

Sania's gonna need to be ON to beat Anna C, plain and simple. Today's form wont be enough. Granted I only saw the last half of the second set, but still. The forehand will need to be clicking and she MUST put in a high number of first serves, cause her second serve is still crap.

Well done on the win, and good luck next round Sania. :hearts: Do your best. :kiss:

HEy I hope atleast u r relieved now :) sania says she has no pressure for the next match and will go and do her best!But I know she wanna win badly! Apparantly she met chakvy in lobby and chakvy said she hates to play sania again :lol: they r very good friends!! Anyways I agree about everything you said! She also needs to serve smarter! Just serving to FH isnt gonna be enough :tape: needs to mix up more on ad side.By the way did you record the match by any chance?? :o

Yeah, definitely relieved. Sania's last couple of losses have been disappointing, so I didnt want it to happen again, and at a slam. At least if she loses to Anna C it'll be respectable.

But no, I didnt record it. Sorry. :hug:
