Quite a remarkable comeback really. Patty served for the match at 6-3 *5-4 up. And yes this was indoors, so much for those who think Alexandra Dulgheru can't play on anything but clay. :p

Obviously this was Patty Schnyder's 1st match back following surgery but this has to go down as an excellent result for Alexandra and it will be interesting to see how she continues handling the responsibility of playing as the Romanian no 1 this tournament, with Sorana Cirstea unavailable.

Alexandra :bowdown:

Additional fact was that Romania was a game from losing a tie so this was really a mental showdown from Alex. ;)

Patty doesn't look in the best condition physically looking at pics on Yahoo.

I don't know how much more she can survive on the tour now.

Is Dulgheru better than I thought or is Patty in a :o shape.

I expect both Alex and Patty to beat MLDB. They will probably both beat Martic too but that is less definate.

But to answer you question, I'm sure Alex is better than you might have thought and will go on to have a good year getting decent wins on all surfaces. Patty probably is a bit rusty too but the fact that she followed up this loss with a convincing win in the doubles suggests aside from a bit of rust she appears to be ok.

Bammer and Schnyder should just retire.

Well her partner was ranked 398 in doubles so I suspect the bulk of the responsibility for winning the match fell on Patty's shoulders.

What are you talking about :lol: :help: :confused:





























Today Patty won her match but this lost is not good but well it was her first match since her injury..so is not that bad.

Well, Amra beat Raluca in the other tie, she certainly is no pushover, but I tend to agree with you there.
