Alberta :( :( Got a back injury down 0-3 in the 2nd.

Much better than R1 from Ana though. She will go far here.

Alberta took a timeout at 0-3* in 2nd set

Ana still looks very shaky esp on her FH
still job done :)

Much better performance from Ana, but still have to raise the level of her game.
Even Brianti wasn't bad at times.

That serve is still very shaky but overall, a good performance.

Confidence seems to be slowly trickling back. I think.
Better performance, though Brianti wasn't exactly stellar.

Ana beats a qualifier? You can give her the trophy already. :cool:
On a serious note, more fluent performance than in R1, but still quite shaky. Tough test against probably Alisa in the next round.

Next round maybe she will meet Kleybanova , :scared: she isn't a easy opponent :scared:

A much better outing from Ana. There's still :tape: elements to her game like the ball toss, but there were flashes of old Ana in that match.

Brianti was very good... she plays like top60...

Are you kidding me? :o That woman shouldn't be near grandslamlevel based on today's performance. She has no court awareness whatsoever. Her play today was itf-level at best. If this match had been close i would have been really worried for ana's future. Anyways, she has loads of improvement to do. Well done today ana, but you were still giving away way too many free points. pick it up quick or you're not gonna make it far!

Ana played well, but I think her forehand could have done more damage...

I didn't get to see the match yet, but I'm glad to hear that she was playing better. Truth be told, she really couldn't get any worse than her 1R performance.

It looked good on paper but that was still horrible for me. Her game looks stiff or something I dont know how to discribe it. Where is her pace of shot where is the depth. Her backhand is horrible and her forehand is not what it once was far from it. I just dont get what has suddendly happen. There is no smoothness there and no conviction.

Exactly! Plus Ana will have to really step it up, cause she's going from playing girls outside top100 to Kleybanova who is top40 :scared: Though, good that she improved in comparison to horrid 1r ;)

Every time Ana fistpumps after an unforced error from an opponent ranked outside the top 75, the point should be replayed. The girl is abusing the fist. I mean literally after every point. Itīs so annyoing. Wow Brianti made a mistake, praise the lord. I wish some opponent would mock her. After beating her Wozniacki should go to the press conference and fist pump after every statement.

Question: So Carolina amazing win tonight.

Wozniacki: Yeah baby fist pump.

Question: What was the key to the match?

Wozniacki: Forehand baby fist pump.

Question: She made a lot of errors?

Wozniacki: Yeah baby fist pump.

Question: What about her ball toss?

Carolina: Guess it sucks fist pump.

Much more solid performance by Ana. Though it may have much to do with the fact Brianti has no weapons at all. She's got probably the most useless groundstrokes (esp. backhand) in the game.
