Flavia woke up in time PHEW

Flavia :)

The first set and a half she played quite bad, way too many errors, and too many slow/high balls.
When she started to play more agressive and moved Haynes around the court when she got the chance, things got better.

Haynes susprised me, she has quite a stong (1st) serve, when it came through Flavia didn't have much of a chance.

Flavia'll have to play better to beat Ana or Gisela though:unsure:

Angie :(

Flavia has to step it up if she is expected to defeat Ana or Gisela tomorrow. This is the first time in her career she has reached R16 at IW or KB.

Flavia :(
A win is a win though :hearts: :hug: :inlove:

Mar 16th, 2009, 09:46 PM
Flavia :yeah:

Still a very strong tourney for Angie :bounce:. She has done very well in her last 2 wta tourneys. I hope she gets a WC in Miami :bounce:.

flavia :rolleyes: but a win is a win

Mar 16th, 2009, 09:51 PM
Good fight Angela :yeah:

Mar 16th, 2009, 10:03 PM
When this was televised in the beginning of the second set, I thought Angela would win. Also, had a feeling Flavia's experience might overcome her though.

Nice effort Angie! Hope you can keep up this form though. :cool:

Mar 16th, 2009, 10:08 PM
well done Flav!:worship:

Mar 16th, 2009, 10:36 PM
If Flavia can win her seection of the draw (beating Ana or Gisela), I honestly believe she could actually win the whole damn thing. Since all the big dogs were knocked out in the first round, she must think it's a MM tournament.

Angie :hug: You did well this week, keep up the good work :yeah:

Mar 17th, 2009, 12:05 AM
Haynes put up a good fight, but Flavia got more aggressive towards the end which clearly helped her!

Saw it on Eurosport. I think Flavia has to play much better next round though.

Mar 17th, 2009, 12:39 AM
at least she won :yeah:

Mar 17th, 2009, 04:07 AM
Flavia :yeah:

Mar 17th, 2009, 04:12 AM
Angela :sobbing: Still a great tournament for you. Keep up the good work. :hug:

Mar 17th, 2009, 04:14 AM
golden finger :eek:

Mar 17th, 2009, 04:23 AM
Sucks for Angie, but still, this was a pretty awesome run for her. If she keeps playing like this she'll definitely be back in the Top 100 soon :bounce:

Mar 17th, 2009, 07:56 AM
Angie. :sobbing:

what a win it would have been. :(

now let's NOT get back to where we were. :o

Mar 17th, 2009, 01:46 PM
Flavia :yeah:

She will need to play much better in her next match.

Mar 17th, 2009, 04:32 PM
flavia :scared: woke up just in time ;) :yeah:
has to play better to beat Ivanovic though

Mar 17th, 2009, 05:41 PM
I was hoping Angela could keep it together, but she was getting a bit stressed in the second set, probably because Flavia remembered how to play tennis. It was still a good tournament for Angela.

Mar 17th, 2009, 05:46 PM
Angie baby :hug: still proud of you.
