Impressed by Mladenovic! I thought she'd get eaten alive, but she showed some great if inconsistent game.
That said Patty pretty much sucked.

Oooooooooh this girl has POTENTIAL. She's just 15 so there's still a lot of inconsistency, but she has a lot of passion for tennis.

I hope Kiki takes only positives from this match. She destroyed a top15 player in the 1st set (sure Patty struggled with the wind, but it was the same for both players and Kristina made some spectacular winners). She has an awesome serve and for a 15yo she has a great talent. Hope she develops in the best way possible! :yeah:
Patty's experience pushed her through in the end, Kristina went for too much at the end of the 2nd set and it nearly paid off... nearly :sad: Looked like she had a hurt wrist in the 3rd set too... :sad:

Patty was not Happy with Kristina, she was sending weird faces to her camp about her rival...

No wonder;)
She was upset at the time Kristina took between points, and like I said: no wonder:help:
I think it's the worst I've ever seen. She finally got a time violation at the end of the second set, but the empire should have acted much sooner. Hopefully her camp will straighten this out:)

Otherwise I was very impressed with young Kristina:D

omg I was afraid kristina to get smaked on 2 sets by schnyder but she handled so well her first match in the main draw of a slam!
she did very good job for such a young and inexperienced player.
She just can be proud of her,taking one set to a top15 player is very positive.
I hope she's ok with her wrist though:scared:

My god Patty played bad. Mladenovic takes so long as well.

Bad match, I left after the second set...I was just pissed off with how bad Patty played. Surprised she won in the end.

this is actualy a good win for patty, anytime its windy patty goes on court expecting to lose, she really does suck in the wind.

So proud of Kristina, she has accomplished so many improvements on her game since the last time I have watched her. Who knows what could have happened had she won these points at 62 44...

I'm extremely impressed by the quality of her game. Especially technically speaking. She can develop into such a great player... Hope she takes her time...

Bravo Kiki and congrats Patty.

Lol I was there too, I left after the 2nd set as I thought it was pretty obvious Patty would run away with the 3rd. Kristina was starting to miss by heaps and Patty's game was improving.

Whew, that was a bit scary to watch. Patty was playing lousy, but stayed relatively patient and then Mladenovic just started going for too much.
Mladenovic is really good for an almost 16 yr old--tall and really pretty,too! She also seems to be rather confident---pretty impressive.

this is actualy a good win for patty, anytime its windy patty goes on court expecting to lose, she really does suck in the wind.

yep as soon as i saw the windy conditions i expected Patty to go out or really struggle. she is probably the worst wind player in the top 200. Her strokes are so elaborate that she just loses all timing and she's got such a crap attitude in bad conditions (and in general). it's just lucky that she does have some fighting instincts because i'm sure she was tempted to bomb out 6-2, 6-2.

hopefully it's calmer tomorrow. Razzano will destroy her in similar conditions as yesterday.
