Rebecca :hug: What a great showing. I'm sure I'm not the only fan that she won today! Best of luck in the future!

What a great fight and effort from young Becca in just her second grand slam main draw :yeah: Saved match points in the second set, and really pushed Schiavone hard in the 3rd, just a little bit of inexperience on some of the big points off the baseline made the difference. Certainly nothing to be disappointed about, she has a very promising future if she can keep building on these moments and getting that consistency on the big points :)

Congrats to Schiavone, a lesser player may have fallen away in the 3rd set after losing so many chances, can always count on Fran to fight it out to the last point no matter what

Gonna be hard to swallow for Becca, but she definitely showed once again her enormous potentiel. Work on moving better and learning when to move to the net and improving her volleys and she's gonna be serious time dangerous with that monstruous serve.

Heart breaking loss for Becca. To battle back from 3-5 and MP's down in that second, play so strong all through that third and just come up short.... :sad::sad:
I still think this year has a lot in store for you, just work on the things you need to and get that serve % back on track, it's been MIA for most of this Aussie swing! :)

Jan 19th, 2011, 07:55 AM
She won but she's destroyed :help:

That was tough, and Franny looks spent. I hope she can manage her next round. Marino has a good future, but at the end of the match, she was making many more UEs.

Jan 19th, 2011, 07:57 AM
such a great fight from Becca! She showed some amazing stuffs against a top10 player! Too bad she lost, but once again she impressed on a big stage! :D That was SO close!

Another great fighting effort from Franny, good to see her still giving it her all. Looks dead towards the end of the match...hope she recovers for her next match (or not, since its against Monica :))

Marino is certainly getting that big win soon, huge game. Just needs to learn how to structure points better to suit her game.

I wanted an upset, here. :sad:

Jan 19th, 2011, 08:10 AM
So impressed with Becca but yet still so sad, really thought she was gonna pull it out:sad:

Jan 19th, 2011, 08:11 AM
holy shit! :eek:

Jan 19th, 2011, 08:12 AM
Marino was up 30-15 on Shiavone's serve at 7-6 3rd set and 7-8 3rd set.

Another marathon match... These ladies are going to be burnt out by the time the later rounds roll around. Well all except Clijsters/Woz who are cruising.

Jan 19th, 2011, 08:28 AM
WOW! So happy for Francesca. She totally deserved this win with her fight towards the end. The second to last point was genius!!! Amazing point construction. I really hope whatever sickness she's feeling is only short-term!

Fran has played nearly 5 hrs for just 2 matches! How long can she keep that up?

Jan 19th, 2011, 09:32 AM
Becca :hug:
I am a new fan. Heartbreaking loss though.

Jan 19th, 2011, 09:40 AM
francesca needs to get better...her form is not so good atm...

Jan 19th, 2011, 09:47 AM
2011 Australian Open champion.:bigclap:

Becs :sad:

Nice showing again, getting closer every time. You'll have plenty more!

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:12 PM
Gutted for Rebecca :( This was the first time I've seen her play and I must say Im quite impressed. I think she has Top 30 potential

Her forehand let her down though. So many into the net :o Her serve is really really good though and that will give her such an advantage over most of the tour

I think she can finish the year in Top 50/60 :)

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:19 PM
Amazing fighter :worship:

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:54 PM
Francesca :hearts: Much harder than I expected, but well done for toughing out the win :drool:

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:55 PM
bad ... would have been delighted if it were eliminated Schiavone

Jan 19th, 2011, 01:36 PM
Marino is a bad copy of Kvitova, happy she lost :)
Franny ;) Nice comeback.

Jan 19th, 2011, 02:01 PM
I sensed it had a chance to be an upset but Fran :cheer: hope she had a good rest for third round against Niculescu.
