really bad 2nd sets but it seems like Petra started to play much better. Nice come back in the 3rd, could have been easier though! Good Luck in the MD!:D

Becca's done a pretty good job of winning first sets this year, but she also seems to have a bit of a habit of dropping that second set, often pretty fast too...Wonder if she's letting up a bit too much after she wins that first set? I think she still has to work a bit on keeping up her focus and intensity, but overall pleased with the result and glad to see she'll get a shot at the MD :)

Becca :yeah:

What ever happened to Cetkovska though? Didn't she beat Dementieva at this tournament just 2 years ago? :o

Yay Becca :D

She'll play Makarova in first round then Azarenka if she wins this. One of the toughest Q spot but it sure would be 2 interesting matches!

Not the spot I would have liked, but Makarova's game can be very hot and cold so I guess we'll see which version of her shows up for that one. Either way, more experience for Rebecca :)

Excellent result for Becca advancing to the main draw with this victory. Dropping second sets easily seems to be becoming a bit of a worrying trend lately though..... :scared: Tough first round assignment against Makarova, hopefully she gets that serve % up and has more focus! :yeah:

Great to see Becca winning back-to-back matches after what happened in Memphis. Makarova is a tricky lefty, that could be a tough one if she plays well.
