Well done Alla, the AO marathon queen :D Fought hard all the way, dealt with Emma's moonballing tactics, and once again gets through a marathon match here (beat Cibulkova 9-7 in qualies).

The match finished at around 11pm, and it was still about 33 degrees or so.

Emma is a talented player, but just didn't take her chances. Served for it at 7-6 but lost serve to love. It was all Alla from then on. An entertaining late night match.

I think this puts Alla in the top 100 now :)

Poor Emma was in tears afterwards and smashed her racquet on a wall a few courts away afterwards

She smashed it on the ground about 5 times repeatedly when she walked off court, so no surprise to hear she was still giving it a good workout a few courts away! Still found time to sign some autographs for the kids though, so that was good to see.
