Scratchy stuff from Ana, lots of brainless bashing. Still trying to hit her way through her low-confidence patch. Like Venus, she does so much better when she simply adds a bit of spin to her shots.

Flavia was okay. Nothing remarkable on display tonight.

Looking at the stats, it seems like she was just able to fight her way out of this one. I miss the old Ana, who didn't have to win ugly every second match. :/

Well, she made it anyway, good luck next round.

Tough luck Flavia, good luck in your next tournament.

I agree. Ana only wins ugly these days, it seems. :(

This was definitely a scratchy match with lots of shifting momentum. Ana was the better player on the night though. I hope she can win the tournament and perhaps find some form along the way. Although considering this field, she can probably win at this current level. :rolleyes: I think getting by Pennetta was actually one of her toughest tests possible in IW, at least until the final.

People complaining about Ana winning ugly... Well, I'm pleased with any victory like this one, since before Ana seemed to needed her more than decent tennis to win against player ranked below her and when she was playing poorly she ended up having shockers. Winning ugly was never something she was good at. And anyway Pennetta is no pushover. Ask Venus.

can't wait for aga to obliterate this ho :inlove:

:lol:

Would never happen in a million years. Only chance Radwanska has of winning is in an ugly 3 set shootout like their last match. Even then she'd have little to no control over proceedings.

The notion of Randwanska obliterating GOAT in any match is infathomable.

This is a typical Ana match since RG.
It's not well played, but she keeps yelling and fighting, and Flavia hit a bunch of balls in the net at the end.
You still have to finish off the match against her, like Dechy didn't at Wimbledon and this one

I dont know why people are saying the match was ugly. Penetta was on fire in the second set , till 3-0 40-40 she had 0 unforced errors.

Ana played quite well as compared to any of her old matches this tournament. Even the commentators were saying how well Ana was playing as compared to her previous form.

Because Ana was doing her best Steffi-off-the-rails impersonation and spraying shots all over the place....often after 1-2 shots from either player in a 'rally.'

I Think She Is Trying; She Is Not At Her Best But Soneer Or Later She Willf Get Her Form Back.ı Think It Is Unfair To Crisize Her Everything About Her Play; Lets Give Her Some Time

Flavia was too passive yesterday. :( Ana really was beatable but it just didn't work out. Ivanovic really wanted it in the last game and played aggressively, that was quite good.

All in all I was hoping for a much better match though!

I still think Ivanovic will reach the final now.

Winning ugly was never something she was good at.

what do you mean by that? surely she has often won matches while not playing well at all. i have seen more than one of those. :o

well let me rephrase more politely :D

Although Ana is, of course, a good competitor- why, she's won a grand slam and has been number one!- I would prefer to see Agnieszka emerge as victor over that scarlet woman in what will likely be the bottom half semifinal bout. :inlove:
