Ok, enough's enough.
Fourth round at the Australian Open - this girl deserves her own thread!!! :bowdown:

Mara continued her winning ways by knocking off another seed. Last night she defeated the Greek Goddess (Eleni Daniilidou) in three sets to move into the Round of 16. Here are her results so far:

128 W Magui SERNA (ESP) 6-7(3) 7-5 6-4
64 W Barbara SCHETT (AUT) 7-6(3) 0-6 6-3
32 W Eleni DANIILIDOU (GRE) 6-4 5-7 6-3

She next faces the Justine Locamotive. Can she derail yet another seed? Stay tuned...

Go Mara!!! :sport:

Yes, she mut be an extremely good player and she's handled nerves very well. I'm also happy because she beat Daniilidou and Serna, two players that I don't like...

GREAT JOB MARA SANTANGELO, KEEP GOING GIRL! :bowdown:

She has been amazing so far. To be a qualifier and reach the fourth round, beating Serna and Daniilidou on the way is worthy of applause! :bigclap:

How does she play?

She's a beautiful player to watch. She's an all-court player, who can really hit the ball hard and she attacks the net beautifully. Plus, she mixes it up nicely with slices, etc.

Ok kidding ;)

hehe, OK so she beat my girl, but hey I've always liked Mara...I first saw her in qualifying last year and she impressed me so much! She obviously likes playing here...yay! I wasn't there watching live, I was in the city shopping (:o) with my cousin and getting score updates on my phone...and cursing out loud in the mens fragrances section.

Go Mara! :kiss:

Congrats Mara for this excellent play in 2nd set. Henin was so anxious about a third set and it was sooooooooooooo close to that at 2-4 and 4-5(spt).

wow, top50 should be in reach early this year !

Nuno, she's quickly becoming a fave of mine. I really like her grit. With a little luck she could have forced a third set but this was a great learning experience for her playing against the world's number one. She put on a good show. Next time she'll win. ;)

I hope not ;) :kiss: But I was really impressed :bounce: She was not afraid of playing Juju and gave her all. And she could have won that second set ... she was staying with Juju in many of those baseline rallies and winning them :eek:

I didn't get to see it. What happened give me details?
Was NNR-DEN pissed off for being hijacked into a 55 minute
second set with tie breaker? What was the facial expression?
I read she disputed line calls?
