Zheng was up a break twice in the 2nd set... but couldn't hold her own service game to consolidate the break......
A good showing by Zheng in a Grand Slam event after all!!! :D
Keep it up, Zheng!!!

this seemed to have been a difficult match. lots of breaks and deuce games etc. congrats zheng for a fantastic tournament; hope you have more success in the future. as for paola, she's having a really good year. she's become really consistent.

I really wanted Zheng to twin so she could earn a few more dollars, but a good showing indeed. Good luck in the future, Zheng.

Aww...So sorry to hear that she can't past Suarezm I guess it is due to lesser experience. :tears: But it is a great great accomplishment already, she has been impresssive so far and she marks the history of Chinese tennis.
But I have never seen her play, I have just checked her stats, her serving speed is kinda slow compared to other players, it's around 120 - 130 km/h which won't be able anybody :o, hope she would get more power to her serve and get some free points from serving.
Good luck to her!! :hug:

Actually, I was having more problems on who to support, but i was more towards Zheng as Suarez has always been consistent and done well. But Paola played well, to win the match as it was tight.
Paola, you gotta cut down the unforce errors, cos Maria has a very solid game! Good luck to you! :yeah:
As for Zheng, this is a wonderful run. I know you fought hard, but you still lost. Hopefully, you continue this all the way and I hope to see you in the top 40 soon. :bounce:
