Nearly choked this match away!!!:tape: So glad Mahree's back, just please shake off the rust and fast :p. She has another winnable match to make the quarters here, and then will likely die vs Sharapova. I'm just happy to see her name in draws again and her playing matches :yeah:.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:34 PM
finally Mary :hearts:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:34 PM
What a fight! :bowdown:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:35 PM
good job mary

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:35 PM
Mary :woohoo:

Dust of that rust! ;)

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:35 PM
This is definitely a time for "a win's a win". It's so good to have her back and it's great to see her fight her way back into a match she should have probably already won. She didn't give up and that's a huge plus :bigclap:. Good luck in the next round Mary!

:sad: Sybille, great effort though.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:36 PM
Well done, Mary. Good to have you back.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:36 PM
What a fight for almost 3 hours, after such a long injury.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:36 PM
:D Well done Mary, at least this proves she can cope in a long tough match so quickly in her comeback.

Good fighting by Mary :) Got a bit of a helping hand from Bammer who coughed up her only breaks of serve in the last 2 sets whilst serving for them both, but credit to Mary for not letting the slip up of mp's in the second set allow her to crumble in the third. Showed what she's made of :)

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:38 PM
yes, the score doesn't count

her moscow win wasn't easy either;-)

Woot!! :bigclap: :clap2: A very tough match, but way to gut it out after missing those match points in the second! Welcome back Mary!! :) :worship:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:44 PM
almost died after following this match, but in the end, im really happy Mary had such a tough match. she always seem to play well after pulling out great wins like wimbledon last year after beating Vakulenko.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:45 PM
Allez Mahree! :dance: We'll take it. ;)

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:47 PM
Allez Mary!!
So proud of you!!

Rest, and good luck !

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:49 PM
A win is a win ... woohoo ..
Mary showed a) she can gut out a 3 setter
b) She still has the heart and spirit to battle just like last year.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:49 PM
Good job Mary, not the biggest fan of yours.. but you definately have a great heart and a splendid fan base.

KEEP IT UP!! :woohoo:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:50 PM
I'll give some vcash to anyone who uploads this match.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:50 PM
with mary all is possible ... like her match against likhovtseva in moscou last year (she was leading 6-0 in the TB of the last set)

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:51 PM
ohh marry you'll kill me....

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:52 PM

Aug 2nd, 2006, 10:53 PM
Congrats Mah-ree!
amazing scoreline, showed she could still grind it out at her age and after such a long injury break! First match since February!
Welcome back! :bounce:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 11:36 PM
Well Done Mary its so good to have you back, well done on fighting thru this victory. Just the type of win she needed to get back into it

Aug 2nd, 2006, 11:46 PM
:lol: Mary, you do know how to make a return dramatic.

I'm glad you won :hug: Good luck in the next round!

Aug 2nd, 2006, 11:47 PM
perfect score for Mary IMO. Showed great form in the first set and then got a real workout in the next two. These tournaments are really about staying healthy and being ready for the US Open. At this point the more tennis she gets the better.

Aug 2nd, 2006, 11:58 PM
:hearts: Allez Mary :hearts:

Aug 3rd, 2006, 01:12 AM
Wasn't really a choke from Mary... more like alot of rust. She played some high quality tennis in the third set to get her back in it. But Bammer played a nasty game to lose serve at 5-4.

The good news is that Mary appeared healthy to me, and she was moving fine. She just needs to lose a little weight.

Mahree :hearts:
