karolina was an ace machine out there, hitting 7 in the third set and mainly on important points. saved like 5 break points in that final set. :worship:

Davenport is much smarter then Dani it won't be easy I wouldn't be surprise if she loses 6-2,6-1, but then again she much older and slower and this will be fist time they play on clay so u never know!!!!:bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::b ounce::bounce:

I can't put into words how proud I am of Karolina. This is a huge win, and totally unexpected for me. Her serve finally started to shine today, it's so much better than her numbers usually show. 9 aces/1 DF :worship: And thjose aces came on HUGE points. She really earned this, and she's looking much healthier to me as well. AJMO AJMO AJMO!!

I think she can at least make it interesting against Davenport, she's played her tight before. Plus, the surface is definitely in Karolina's favor.

GOOD LUCK BABY! :hearts: :D :armed:

A little disappointing from Dani but hardly a loss to lose sleep over. She will be fine, I'm sure she will get a few wins on clay before the season is over and I expect good things from her on grass.

Dani will bounce back. :yeah:

karolina tell jelena d to get back playin tennis

i agree, it's probably quite handy for her to have started her comeback on clay (let's forget about miami). still i'm very surprised.

The way how she came back is incredible, I thought she'll lose to Sugiyama and was wrong but I was almost sure she'll lose to Hantuchova, that makes me even happier :D
