View Full Version : Cincinnati 1R: McHale def. Pironkova 7-5, 4-6, 6-1

Raise your hand if you're happy that Tsveti won a set.

Total points: McHale 100, Pironkova 74. I couldn't see the match, but I get the feeling Christina was the much better player and just choked away the second. This isn't a terrible loss for Tsveti, but oh, how I would have loved to see her upset Woz....

Christina :cheer:

Aug 15th, 2011, 11:09 PM
Knew McHale could do it! :woohoo:

Aug 15th, 2011, 11:11 PM
Not again...

:woohoo: Way to close it out in the 3rd X-Tina :bounce:

Xtina :hearts: Taking out the trash!! :bigclap:

Great composure to dominate the third after choking away the second. :yeah:

Putting together a nice summer. Stanford R2, Carlsbad R3, and now R2 in Cincinnati. Doing a good job beating the players she's supposed to beat. Hope she has fun against Wozniacka in the next round.

Tsvetana was god-awful on return today :smash: I don't know how she managed to win a set.

Hopefully she won't get demolished in New Haven. :help:

Much like the typical "No seed, no win" phrase we use for Gise, this is a case of "No Venus. no win" for Tsveti. :hug: Glad she won a set.

Xtina :yeah: GL against Rory's fuck buddy! :banana:

It always hurts watching the other tournament results for Tsveti when the second WTA QF for the year is over.:ignore:

Looks like Christina did way better watching the stats.Still hurray for Tsveti for getting the second set after trailing 2-4.:clap2:

83% winning on 1st set and 6 aces!Christina!:worship:

Good win for Christina. I'm glad that she's doing well for herself. I like her game a lot.

Nice job Xtina !

Aug 16th, 2011, 12:31 AM
Well done, Christina. Probably should have taken that second set.

Aug 16th, 2011, 12:41 AM
Pironkova had no chance whatsoever there was no V Williams in the draw that could inspire her to play well.

I was here. Check my thread for my report :)

Good job Xtina :). No surprise ;).

She won't be able to keep the ball in enough to beat Sunshine though.

Aug 16th, 2011, 06:42 AM
:lol: Pironkova turning into Venus-lite? Only able to shine at Wimbledon?! :eek:

Aug 16th, 2011, 06:57 AM
Congrats Xtina :)

Tsveti had chances in the first set :shrug:

Aug 16th, 2011, 07:29 AM

Christina will be fine as long as she keeps on beating higher ranked players.
