This was a really fun to match the last two sets. Stosur was AWFUL in the first set :o Rennae played well, but you can't win a doubles match by yourself.

Barrois/Garbin are a fun team to watch. Garbin was hitting lots of great lobs for her return of serve, while Barrois had a very nice serve and slices that were really skidding off the court. They both were taking full advantage of the fact that Rennae was trying to poach too early and hit lots of nice down the line winners in the first set. Ultimately though, Stosur/Stubbs were clearly the better team and it was just a question of whether or not Sam would get her act together in time.

The first set reminded me their final in Eastbourne, with Sammy playing awful. Then of course they could regroup, it would have been a big surprise if they had not qualified at least for the semis considering the draw they had!

C'mon Sammy and Stubbsy, get your A-game together!

That was a really exciting match to watch but I really wanted Garbin/Barrois to win :(

Mind you, I'd very much doubt that Tathiana expected to be in the tournament on the second Wednesday! :lol:
