Vera :sobbing:

such a close competitive match. I'm really proud of the way Vera played out there, she definetely seems out of her slump at the moment. I hope she carries this form into the Australian Open. With a nice draw she could reach 3rd round maybe.

Congratulations Patty! :yeah:

Although a loss, it's still a great result & tournament for Vera :yeah:. Pushing a top-10 player to 3 tough sets is another sign that Vera D. is back to playing well again. Hopefully she can keep this form up.

Congrats Patty :yeah:

Nice job on the win Patty. Probably should have been easier but maybe Vera will do better this year.

Patty :help:

3 sets needed to defeat Douchevina. :o :tape: :smash:

Well a win is a win I guess.

Patty wins her opening match of the season for the 10th consecutive year.

Douchevina has fallen down to #100, i had no idea she was struggling that badly. A year ago she was ranked in the mid-30s. She has one of the worst serves i have ever seen for a tall player, much worse than Lena D's.
