Glad Anne got the job done, 4 wins here will give her some confidence but I'm not sure she's in the form to trouble Petkovic, but great to see her through.

Pretty good. When's the last time Anne won a match at a grand slam?

Anne :hearts: I hope she wins against Petkovic but she's done great so far to get here and earned some good points anyway. :)

This was her main-draw debut in singles at a Grand Slam.

I didn't know Arina had a bad reputation, just like big sis.

Q. The girl you played tonight, the challenge of playing someone with her temperament, how does it compare to her popular sister?

ANNE KEOTHAVONG: Uhm, well, they're both, you know they are what they are and everyone kind of knows that. How can I say this diplomatically?

I had to just focus on my own game and just leave her to whatever she wanted to do. I felt like I was very focused out there, and I felt like I handled, uhm, the situation fairly well.

Q. She had a go at one of the ball girls.

ANNE KEOTHAVONG: Did she (smiling)? I'm not going to say anything.


:lol:

Anne :)

Hopefully this should see Anne think she does belong in the top 100 again and believe she can go out there against top 50 players.

I think she has a chance in the next round but its a very tough ask.

patch.

big win for Anne, not easy to play four matches in four days and win them all in straight sets, first grand slam win since 2008 too. Hopefully, she will be back into the top 100 after this tournament and that will give her the boost to start climbing back towards the top 50 :yeah:

Big ask next round, but she knows Andrea well and fingers crossed she can do her self justice

Realy fucking happy! :D By the sounds of it Arina acted like a stroppy teenager out there so i'm happy Anne stayed concentrated!

Would be great to see a win against Andrea but having won 4 matches in a row and with Petkovic being the 30th seed, i'll be happy so long as Anne keeps it close! Good luck Anne. :)

Anne :D Pleased to see her take advantage of a pretty good draw thus far, hopefully she can go into the match with Petkovic with nothing to lose and just try and go for it out there :)
