Poor Koryttseva :hug: The schedule screw her completely! I only think Safarova's in decent form if she beats Bammer!

Mariya was robbed today. HORRIBLE scheduling. They put her 1st round at not before 5pm and goes 3 sets. And then within hours she has to play another 3 setter:o So she was forced to play 5 and 1/2 sets today in 8 hours:o
Mariya should have won that:(

Lucka had easy opponents but still a good win because she needs it a lot.. if she beats Bammer then I would consider she's in form :)

I can't believe Lucka is in the third round of the OG.

Now take out Bammer :armed:

maybe that's why Lucie won.. it looks like she wouldn't if Koryttseva would play one match each day :lol:

Well to a large extent it's Koryttseva's own fault. She was up 5-3 (or something like that) in the 2nd set in her match yesterday and failed to serve the match out. If she had actually closed it out then she wouldn't have had to play to finish the match up by playing a long 3rd set today and therefore be more rested.

I hope you're kidding?:unsure:
So it's her fault that she was forced to play until midnight last night, it's her fault her momentum was stopped at 5-3 when they stopped play, it's her fault she was forced to play at 5, when play began at 10:30 and then a few hours later was forced to play another match.
I am sorry but your comment was stupid. You don't even know how either player played on either day to say that she should have closed her out. Mariya should have played earlier today, so in case she did win or Obziler won they got more rest then 2 hours.

If you're a Lucie fan, a decent week has been a loooong time coming.

Now, excuse me while I go jump over the moon. :bounce:

As much as I want to believe that Lucie is finding form, I don't buy it. Her opponent had just played a long match earlier in the day, and I'm pretty sure that had to a lot to do with her victory. However, nothing would make me happier than a return to form for Safarova.

please make this be the turn around of safarova's year. i cant believe how low she is ranked compared to last year. shes in the weak quarter of the draw, so hopefully she can reach the semis. good luck against bammer, keep it up :yeah:
