did she just say that this was her first match after Wimbledon? :lol: Guess she really wants to forget about that Stosur match.

Na looked sharper today. Good work.

I loved how the umpire was pronoucning Safarova - Zha-far-zuh-vuh. :hearts: That's correct, yes?

She is still in the cloud of the RG celebration.

She can't remember anything after signing so many endorsement contracts:lol:

Yeah, but you're a fan; you're probably more nervy about Na playing than I am. ;)

What is with all the sucktastic performances from WTA players here? :hysteric: Yesterday we had the abomination that was called Petkovic/Gajdosova and now Lucie puts on shitfest too.

Na played pretty well, aside from the brainfart right at the end. She's actually a pretty underrated mover - she brought quite a lot of balls back into play, frustrating Safarova into errors.

I can see her testing Serena in the next round (assuming Serena doesn't get bored and tanks to Hradecka or Stosur).

Awful performance from Lucie but uncharacteristically solid from Li there. Will be interesting to see who she faces in the third round - she would undoubtedly lose in straights to Stosur, but should she play Serena, there's no doubt that she will raise her game as everyone always seems to do.

It's not that Na raises her game for certain players, it's just her game matches up with Serena's a lot better than it does Stosur's. Na doesn't cope with spin well at all, partly due to the fact she's relatively short... whereas Serena's serve/shots fall into her "wheelhouse" (hate that term) more naturally.

With that said, even if she plays Stosur, I'd expect Na to give a better account of herself than last week, because the faster surface here makes Stosur's game less effective.

Agree, Li Na preformed way better today. Not so for Lucie. She seemed more fierce in her last match.

Appalling serving stats from Lucie. :o I can't remember the last time she had under 50% first serves in, win or lose.
Nevermind, maybe just never got going.

Li didn't play very good. Hitting balls out quite often

Well, Li played better than in Toroto.
Her first game have each set is :o
But won 5 games in a row in each set :lol:

At 5-2 she played two awful games, oressure to win... Lots of forehand error through the match but some decent GH winniners...
Congrats Na!
