Came back from 5-1 (or was it 4-1...???) down in the first set. Good match to win as Shahar has a 2-0 record over Franny and appears to be getting back to form. Go FRANYY! #1 seed yahaaaaaaaaa :bounce:

well done Fran, first win over an in-form Peer ! :bounce: she was down 1-5 in the first set and I really thought she was going to lose easily, as in the other matches against Peer, but she fought back, this will help her confidence, I hope

Shahar choke again 3 days after she did the same against Bondarenko in Budapest, she was leading 5-1 30-0 and just blown exactly like she did against Alona. Her tennis is better than 2008 but after these defeats, she might slump again....

Lightning striking twice. Last week Shahar Peer led Alona Bondarenko 5-1. She ended up losing 7-5 6-1. This week Peer led Francesca Schiavone 5-1. She ended up losing 7-5 6-3. :eek:

One such result can be considered an unfortunate accident but two times in a row and its starts to look rather concerning.

That said, well done Francesca another great fight. Francesca is not a player who gives up. Respect to her. :bowdown:

She better retires.

Good win by Schiavone. Got a tough 1R match in Bastad, and even though she's the top seed here, got a tough 1R match again. Not surprised that she won (even though she only played well intermittently against Pennetta up in Sweden), but I expected the score to be tighter - which it might have been had Peer closed out the 1st set, come to think of it.
