Great stuff from Burdette! :cheer:

Hits like THUNDER.

Lucie played okay, but return game was poor.

So impressed with Burdette. She come out of nowhere and just wins.
I like her serve, it looks like Karlovic's serving.
Also fantastic game of ground. BRAVO, GL in next rounds!

Wow, very impressed with that girl.
Stanford will allow her to play in some pro events, she should make the most of it.

Still, she should keep calm as Beatrice Capra one had a run to the 3R and that meant nothing.
Enjoy the moment.

Embarrassing performance from Lucie. She didn't even show up until halfway through the second set. The best chance she ever had to reach the third round of a slam and she looked like she couldn't even be bothered :mad:

Burdette is very good. A lot of firepower and her serve is impressive. Good luck to her.

Well...shit. Lucie was disgraceful. When her serve's getting broken, you know she's not playing well:sobbing:

No doubt they'll put her R3 midday on Ashe trying to replicate an Oudin. :lol: Luckily I think she'll do better than Capra.

You mean hits like THUNDER as in hits really hard or as in hits almost as pathetic as Karatantcheva?

Well, anyone facing Sharapova in 3R would be on Ashe. :lol:
Unfortunately for her, I don't think Maria will ever allow herself to lose to another up-and-coming American at the Open.

Good to see Mal isn't choking like she does in college. :lol: Interested to see how she fares against Sharapova.

oh c'mon she won an ncaa team title clinching match freshman year & 2 doubles titles (though yes she did blow a huge lead in an ncaa team title clinching match as a sophomore & a huge lead vs Gibbs in the NCAA singles final as a junior)

You are right about the return game. Final game of the match, Burdette's points were an ace, a winner, and 3 errors off the return for Lucie.

Thank You Mallory. I am officially a fan now.

Credit to Burdette who did play well, but Hradecka on a bad day can lose to pretty much anyone. She played horribly today.

WOW! Really unexpected! I read she has a good serve and she sometimes screamed after Hradecka's errors...

She earned (http://www.gostanford.com/sports/w-tennis/spec-rel/080512aab.html) her wild card. You could say it's a good way to award a wild card.;)

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that she had worked it out with the school to play some ITF's in the fall, but my memory may be failing me.

Great win for Burdette! I don't really understand why some people think it's bad for her play here(and whichever other few tournaments she plays) and just see how she goes... she's obviously decided to continue her studies and work around that, so why not also have a fun pop at winning some matches on the side?

If anything, some good results here will help her mentally when/if she graduates and turns pro - if she's doing well at this level in her present circumstances, I'm sure it will give her a lot of confidence for the future whatever path she goes down.

Some parts of her game remind me of Molik.

Don't think she can be consistent enough to trouble Pova though.

She won't be able to, since NCAA prohibits collegiate competition once you declare pro level.
