Na had never played a WTA Main Draw match on grass before today ;)
Today she defeated Mashona Washington to move on to the 2nd round of the Birmingham tournament :hearts:

In the first set there was likely some grass court jitters as Na lost the first 8 points on Mashona's serve and found herself down 1-3 :eek:

Mashona is a good player on fast surfaces so I was very worried at this point :tape:

But then Na found her footing and rallied 6 straight games for 6-3, 1-0

And she finished off Mashona in an hour

Now she is headed toward a collision course with top seed and 2-time defending champion Masha Sharapova :scared:

It's really great to see Na win this match so easily

She'll fit into the grass court much better in the next match

First Daniilidou has to win her 1R match. Then we will see what happens :rolleyes:

Of course it didn't. I'm Na's #1 hater. I must trash whenever possible :fiery: ;)


We certainly will, I see disappointment for you :p

Firstly, this has nothing to do with Fran.

Secondly, Fran will reach Top 10 and how's your Asian mole fave doing? I mean how many wins since Miami??? :tape:

:lol:
career WTA titles
Schiavone - 0
Li - 1

:tape:

Fran = Moscow, Sydney, Amelia Island, Hasselt & Bali runner up in 12 months. Wins over Mauresmo twice, Dementieva, Kuznetsova twice, Petrova, Schnyder, Pennetta twice, Likhovtseva, Dechy and many others.

Na = Schnyder win.

Discussion ends.

When were you involved? :o

Unsurprisingly your wrong. I don't hate Na. I'm not a fan at all cos her game is boring and she's over-hyped.

And it's got nothing to do with her being asian. Tanasugarn is one of my faves. I don't mind Ai, but when her main fan constantly bitches about my fave, I have the right to bitch about his :)

On the contrary, Na has always been underestimated instead of over-hyped if we look back into the past two years since she came back from colleges. She plays regularly only recently in this year and I don't see anything that could prevent her from being a top 15 player, except injuries.

As for SCHIAVONE, it's really intresting to watch some of her games although I don't think she is mentally strong enough to win a title.
BTW, I do not hate her but I think she's really really ugly. With that face it's even painful to be a man.

This has not been a good day for my favorites at Birmingham :(. Mashona :sad:, after such a good tournament here last year. She's got a ton of points to defend during the grass court season so hopefully it comes together @ Eastbourne. Blah, whatever we're on faster surfaces it will get better.

Nice win Na :yeah:

Obviously you dislike her, if you call her really ugly :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: It is extremely unnecessary. Fran looks fine. The amount of stick she gets is riduclous. She looks fine. There are many uglier players than her :rolleyes:

Mashona is in deep shit right now. Quarterfinal points to defend at Eastbourne and 3rd round points to defend at Wimbledon. First round losses at both of these events and she'll find herself at around #170 and right back in 50K's again.
