Jan 19th, 2011, 11:06 AM
played so shitty at the beginning :lol: But really fought so well after she went totally crazy in first set after a VERY bad line call at 2:4 BP :lol: Thought she would lose it because she seemed so pissed and made so many errors.... but Keothavong was playing quite well, too.

Just happy she won :lol:

Anne played pretty well in the first and second, but just lost everything in the 3rd. She is a nice player to watch though. Good job on qualifying and winning a round here.

Petkovic's Chakvetadze-esc fistpumps were annoying. I usually like her a lot, but her attitude today stank. :lol:

Andrea :cheer:
shoulndt be losing to Anne.

Anne :sad: :bigcry:
But back in top 100 :bounce:
Should have won though....

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:11 AM
Thank heavens that Andrea did fight. :rolleyes:
O well, a win is a win. :)

Petko :hearts:

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:13 AM
It can only help but should have been winning with less problems against players like Keothavong

Great, Petkovic is still floating in the draw. :o

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:15 AM

Sombrerero loco

petko :hearts: well done

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:19 AM
Nice comeback from Andrea. :yeah:

I thought this match was a lost cause after she slipped and slightly injured her ankle early in the 2nd set, especially since she was already trailing by a set and was playing pretty poorly up to that point.

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:23 AM
Great fight from Andrea :yeah:

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:25 AM
well done petko!!

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:27 AM
Andrea :yeah:

Jan 19th, 2011, 11:27 AM
Anne loves her bagels

Incredible match from Andrea...

First time with big expectations at a GS, which caused a mental block in the first two sets, like against Zvonareva last year.

:worship: But how she managed to escape from that... :worship:

One of the matches of her career so far.

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:10 PM
vamos :D

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:22 PM
Anne :hug: Wasn't expecting her to make it this competitive.

:worship: Nice fight, Andy. :D

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:40 PM
vamos andy

Jan 19th, 2011, 12:54 PM
Anne :tears:

Had a feeling she could win after she won the first set, but I guess not.
I expected Petkovic would win though.

Jan 19th, 2011, 01:02 PM
why only this first set

Jan 19th, 2011, 01:33 PM
Anne :o Wasted opportunity.
Petkorazzi! :D

Jan 19th, 2011, 01:38 PM
Petkorazzi phew!:cheer:

Keep marching on, Andrea! :bounce:

Jan 19th, 2011, 01:42 PM
I want Petko on RLA against Venus, and I want her to win. Hopefully it's a night game, but I think Woz v Cibulkova or Henin v Kuzzie will occupy the night slot on Friday.

Jan 19th, 2011, 01:45 PM
not a surprise really that Anne crumbled, its called British-itis

Petkovic is obnoxious as it gets, how nice is it to dance (waving your ass) infront of a beaten opponent? real classy

A set and a break up Anne! :sobbing:
Also, Andreas winning dance pissed me off. I only find that sort of thing acceptable if she'd just defeated Henin. ;)

Jan 19th, 2011, 05:15 PM
great fight back Andrea :)

Jan 19th, 2011, 06:06 PM
Anne :sobbing: Good effort against a player very much in form though, and a positive week for the year too. :yeah:

Jan 19th, 2011, 07:29 PM
excuse me but Anne was 48 in the world when she had a really bad knee injury, she was improving all the time before that and it's a shame. But Andrea is a great hitter of the ball and i expected her to win from the start but well done Anne you should be proud of yourself!!

Jan 19th, 2011, 09:21 PM
Good effort by Anne, but happy to see Petko win. Hope she can beat Venus now :)

Jan 19th, 2011, 09:35 PM
Petko wouldve lost this last year. Shes maturing. Good chance against Venus.

Anne :hug::hug: Good effort!
Andrea :yeah::banana: Beat Venus now!

Jan 19th, 2011, 10:20 PM
Oh Anne! I went to bed with you cruising. New it would have been too good to be true :sobbing:

Jan 19th, 2011, 10:27 PM
Oh Anne! I went to bed with you
