Oct 4th, 2006, 11:28 PM
what a lame perfomance fran..losing to a joke like benesova is pathetic :help: :eek:
Oct 4th, 2006, 11:31 PM
Benesova isn't a joke. I know she hasn't been playing well lately, but the girl has still got some game when she's confident.
Oct 4th, 2006, 11:31 PM
when was the last time Benesova won a match in a Tier II or higher ?
EDIT: looked it up
she beat French WC Parmentier @ Roland Garros and WC Ancic in Miami
she beat slumping Vento-Kabchi in Antwerp

Yay a rare win for Iveta this year. I actually thought she might win this match but not by retirment of course.
Hope Schiavone is okay.

Iveta Benesova is known to play better agst higher-ranked players: prepares herself well and stays focused. When she's playing down, she takes less care to prep: parties the night before, barely warms up, and tries too often to "wing it". This year, she dispatched Mary Pierce at the AO and played very solid sets agst Mauresmo in Antwerp. Her tactic is sound too: get ahead early and stay ahead. This match the was the same: up 3-0 in two of the sets. Well done Iveta :yeah:, regardles Fran's wrist injury. Wish Schiavone speedy recovery.

It's the wrist injury :sad:
Oct 5th, 2006, 06:46 AM
I just hope that it's not a serious injury for Fran.
Oct 5th, 2006, 06:48 AM
Well done Iveta :kiss: Hopefully this will give you some much-needed confidence boost :)

was fran playing with a leg instead of hand :help:
Oct 5th, 2006, 02:17 PM
does anyone know how she got the injury? was it progressive? or did she fall on the wrist? it all seemed very sudden, so i was guessing a fall maybe?
Oct 5th, 2006, 03:35 PM
Poor Francesca... :hug: She really has had a tough few days.
Get well soon!! (I REALLY want her to win a tournament, and hopefully very soon indeed!! :) )
All the best to Iveta for the rest of the tournament.

Fran :sad: :sad: :sad: Guess I'm not really surprised. I just hope this injury doesn't affect you in Moscow. That surface is perfect for her game. And I'm confident she would reach the final and lose :)
