What a choke from Nadia :spit:

She served for the match at 62 *52 but managed to rescue with a win in the TB.

Anyway, got it done, GL in R16

Phew, Nadia.

VRP was quite the pesky opponent for Nadia.

Nadia served for the match at 52, had 3 mp's at 53, the was broken at 54.
She has to play better on big points vs Ivanovic, but Nadia is very capable of winning this next match

Il Primo!

Seriously? :o
Let's hope she won't have to wait another year and half for the next R16.

The last time Nadia played Wimbledon she lost a close QF to Sharapova in 2005. This should be Nadia's best surface. She has a good serve and good volley.

It's not as if Ana were playing great tennis on grass.
Nadia will be the favourite for their meeting.

Nadia is a very good double player. She has very good serve and volley. I think she has a good chance at Wimbledon.

Nadia had a very easy first 3 rounds. Tomorrow the tournament really starts for her.

I watched the match since 5-3 in 2nd set and I think Nadia didn't choke...Vivi played well in that last games, no errors, some winners and her lobs (she made 3 or 4) were always in close on the line...

But Nadia deserved to win...Good luck in 4r!

Even if Vivi played well, you have to serve out the match. On grass, the server has an edge. You have to serve it out.
Nadia was lucky today. Against Ana she has to play better on key points.

Bit tougher than what I would have liked in that second set, but still well done on coming through against a potentially difficult opponent. Now it's time for the big matches :armed:
