Very surprised she won. Came up with a couple of really good backhands then Larsson DF'd to get the break back at the end, then sloppy game to finish.

First time I've seen Johanna, she's so Tati-ish, both in the style of dress, the ankle protectors and that big swishing forehand that ends up round the back of the neck. Very strange backhand she kind of launches into, good to watch though when it goes in. On that display should be at least 100 places higher than she is, but obviously she doesn't normally play like that.

First set was excellent, second set Larsson's form dropped and Cirstea was solid, third she just raised her game a bit when she needed to but she was looking pretty ragged for long stretches. Very watchable match though.

Good fighting qualities at the end to recover from 3-5 down.
Until then yes she played badly, but still got the win in the end :)
Hope she improves for Dulko match Wednesday!

J-Lo :hug: but good performance,her season so far is been really poor of results :(

Awful start from the ailing Cirstea - timing on her BH was completely off, no serve, lackadaisical and passive. Stopped watching when she was beginning to go for her shots and hitting some great winners midway through the 2nd set.

Larsson plays an interesting game - surprisingly good kick serve, somewhat funky strokes (FH reminded me of someone - Cilic?) always hit with a lot of spin, but nevertheless she gets good racquethead speed on them and manages to dictate play while going nowhere near the lines. Larsson's game seems well suited to clay challengers on paper, so I was surprised when I checked and noticed that her results this year have been total shit.

For being sick, she did a damn good job!

Jul 7th, 2009, 07:39 AM
How horrible choke from Johanna :(
I hate Cirstea more and more :(
At the end of the day she must be tired to jump between each point and to pump her fist in the air after each point :o
