Had us scared there in the end, but a win is a win ... Her service stats are quite impressive ... Best of luck in the next round babe!

Interesting second set.... I wonder if she was trying to become more aggressive there but could not convert....

Scores don't matter in the early rounds, good chance to experiment with B and C strategies. She got the win thats all matters..

Good win Martina, I'm guessing Nicole played pretty well on the fast surface and you felt like giving her self-esteem a boost in the second set. ;) Keep it up against Na next round.

Na has to beat Stosur first. (GO NA!!)

Well played Marti :)

Good win nevertheless for Martina!

Martina said she is trying to be more aggressive so perhaps she had a few more errors in the 2nd set?

Hingis served 2 aces in her opening service game :eek:
It was great! Well done Martina! Keep improving, :hearts:
