Good performance by Szavay! Martic woke up too late... But her dropshots are superb.

Szavay #1

:o What a fluke win against Wickmayer. :tears: Good to see Agnes playing well again.

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:14 PM
now that was disappointing from Petra. oh well...

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:15 PM
Petra was so nervous today, lucky for us:)
Hajra Agi!

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:16 PM
Petra has excellent shot selection ha? Well she didn't show any of it today! :lol:

Routine win for Szavay.

Awful play from Petra :o She should have won the 2nd set, though.

Luckily she chose to play her best match ever vs. Wickmayer :inlove:

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:20 PM
good win Agnes play good
only that broken game's serve is not good enough

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:21 PM
step by step.

But she should have played better :o

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:21 PM

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:26 PM

Martic needed a best of 5 match
she was half asleep until 2nd set

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:41 PM
ehm :lol::o

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:49 PM
This Martic is top 5 material for sure!

Feb 11th, 2010, 04:51 PM
These youngsters. :rolleyes:

May I quote myself from the Martic def. Wickmayer thread?

I remember watching her [Martic] against Wozniacki at the USO. Back then I just couldn't help wondering how in hell she even made it to a grand slam main draw cos her play was truly atrocious. Perhaps now I've got the answer: she desperately needs pace generated by her opponents cos the odd groundstoke technique doesn't allow her to hit hard by herself.

Of course today Martic was nowhere near as horrible as she was against Wozniacki but the problem was pretty much the same, IMO. Her tennis is way too "reactive".
It's such a shame Petra can't create pace on her shots cos she's really nice to watch.

good to see szavay rather getting it together again. hopefully she can build on this.

Feb 11th, 2010, 05:53 PM
Agnes :yeah:

Feb 11th, 2010, 07:34 PM
Good to see Szavay and her stylish game showing somle signs of life

Feb 11th, 2010, 07:46 PM
Szavay did a very nice job in the 2nd set after losing her 3-1 lead in set 3. Martic had a good lead in one of the later games in set 3, but choked. That cost Martic.

Well done Agi:)

Feb 11th, 2010, 08:36 PM
Good win, Agnes!:hearts::bounce:

Her backhand is :drool:

Martic didn`t impress me. Seemed sleepy.

Please reach SF, Agnes!

Feb 11th, 2010, 08:42 PM
Ági :cheer::inlove::bigclap: only got broken once :bolt:.

She is getting better and better, came from 15-40 in the last game :D Oudin is beatable, reach the semis Ági!!!

Feb 11th, 2010, 08:47 PM
Just my luck - yesterday Martić played a match for which she was proclaimed a new GOAT, but I didn't see it. Today, I saw her match and she played like Ana at the Fed Cup. :help:
But at least Agi was solid and managed not to choke. :yeah: I miss the 2007 Agi. :awww: (although one thing hasn't changed - she's still beating JJ :sobbing:)

Feb 11th, 2010, 09:09 PM
Agnes has won 2 matches in a row again! :yeah: :sobbing: :bounce:

Why do my nonVenus faves - Lucie, Agi - play so well at Paris Indoors? I want them to have these kinds of results more often. I guess something about the indoor courts suits them.

Feb 11th, 2010, 10:05 PM
No biggie. I'm still eternally grateful she took out Yanina. :hearts::cheer:

Feb 11th, 2010, 10:11 PM
Szavay is so making the Final

Feb 11th, 2010, 10:14 PM
Agnes :hearts:

Feb 11th, 2010, 10:19 PM
well done Agi!!!!!!!!

Feb 11th, 2010, 11:41 PM
I guess Petra was too excited about beating Wickmayer in round before that she came on the court very flat today.
