Good win Patty.Zakopalova was on fire in the fisrt set playing very agressive and producing alot of winners. Amazing how a small woman like her can hit the ball so hard!! IN the second set Patty managed to break her immediately and Zakapalova made some errors and got bogged down a bit.Her mental state is not so steady otherwise she would be 20 to 30 places higher ranked.
Patty just hung in the match and slowly turned it around towards her, although she was quite frustrated and angry at times.
when Patty's serve isn't working 100% she is a bit vulnerable when the opponent returns well and is a hard hitter like Zakapalova.but with fighting spirit and taking the chances she got she managed to win the match, but I must say the 6-1 and 6-2 weren't that overwhelming cuz of her frustration at mistakes.
in the end it doesn't matter she won although not playing in great form so that's always good for the confidence. It's better to produce her good form today against Daniela Hantuchova who isn't playing steady in her first match against Ondraskova but off course won.
I made alot of pictures but am in an internet cafe now so I'll post ASAP on sunday when I return. I'll try and make a bit of a report of her match against Daniela and post it tomorrow I hope. CMON PATTY GOOD LUCK AGAINST DANIELA AND WINN!!!!!!!!!!!
