Well done Marina! :banana: Totally forgot about her. :)
But what's happened to Czink after her match against Henin in Brisbane? :confused: She even lost to the ones like Yan Zi. :help:

It's not true. She won a match after Brisbane (against Rus in Miami). But she's on the way of fall out from the top100. It's so sad. She said that (ago several weeks) she had mental problems. She play too careful game or play a more agressive game with many many mistake. :sad:
Marina, good luck in the next round, i hope you come back soon! :cheer:

Ultra jealous!!! You've been a fan of hers for years, going to see any more of her matches? (note the plural, no way is she losing next round!)

Blow her a kiss from us please :)

Excellent from Marina, just what the doctor ordered.

Next round vs Ferguson or Craybas.

Big chance here.

I watched some of this. Marina's serve was very impressive, her forehand.. less so. Serving for the match she put one easy forehand into the bottom of the net and one into the back fence.

Melinda was well on top in the first set, she must have had at least half a dozen break points that Marina saved with big serves. In the second set it was pretty even until Melinda started to get frustrated with Marina's slice backhands and basically gave up after her serve was broken.
