VIVI!!! She needed this win, she's been struggling quite a bit lately. Hopefully she gets back the form she showed at the Australian Open this year.

Good win for Virginia, but what the hell was goin on with Elena. We all know, that especially on hardcourt, Elena should not be losing to her.

Vivi!! :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: I'm so happy for her!! She got off to such a good start to the year, but has barely won a match since. She really needs some big wins before the end of the season or I don't even want to think what her ranking will be like after she loses all those QF points from the AO in January! :eek:
Let's see what she can go against Maleeva later! Vamos Vivi!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

That is a terrible hard court loss for Elena! :mad: I'm beginning to think that Elena just doesn't have what it takes to be a bigtime tennis champion. :(

Elena does have troubles playing against Virginie... I remember last year at US Open Elena needed 3 tough sets to defeat Virginie.... No more luck this time though!!!
I believe Elena doesn't like to play against players who like to use backhand slices.....
its just a bad match up fro elena, kind of like all the players who spin with her, like schiavone, who she recently beat, good job, but vivi is tough for her, off pace and spinny, id imgaine grande might be tough for her as well as serna, elena likes pace you know, dont get discouraged, she fought well, and at least she didnt tank it you know, but GO MAGGIE TODAY!!! :hearts:
