Pretty much down the whole match Nicole somehow dug deeper and deeper to fight this 2nd round match out.

down 6-4 5-4 she manages to scrape it to a tiebreak which she wins. Then Castano grows a big lead in the 3rd set, up 4-1 the points for 5-1. Nicole comes storming back, she breaks Castano back once to get to 4-5. Castano is then up 40-0 on serve. Pratt then saves 3 MP's in a row, and the a 4th, final breaks Castano to get the 2nd break back then cruises the last two games for a 4-6 7-6(3) 7-5 win.

Incredible performance, undoubtedly Nicole is one of the biggest fighters on the tour!

Funny thing is Molik nearly did it too! Comin back from 2 breaks and 5-1 in the 3rd only to fall in the tiebreak to Nagyova!

Hope Pratt pulls up ok, Davenport who got passed Jankovic 7-5 6-3. If Pratt beats Davenport she would become Aussie number 1 again!

She surprised me with that win, proves fighting spirit can play over the mind of surface.

I think she also is one of the best tactical players out there, that's a part of a tennis player's game which seems to be underated these days.

Good luck against Long-sleeved Lindsay :hatoff:
