this win is more important for Laine. Her career is still in it's early stages but it's stalled massively over the past year and she needs to get it going again.

I watched major parts of this match live and it was very exciting. It was my first time seeing Brenda live and I fell in love. So old for a tennis player yet so fit, she has a great attacking game chipping and charging on opponent's second serves. Every now and then she hit a beautiful drop volley, but too many errors, too many openings for Laine's greaty lefty forehand passing shots, not enough first serves in.

But she was 2 points away from winning at 7-6, 5-4*, 15-30. Thought it would happen there. She was still sweet and signed for me and my friend after the match because we had been cheering her on. She thanked us for coming out to watch.

Love ya, Brenda.

I am very sad for Brenda, because I really wish for her playing a GS-MD again and now she lost again in Q1 :sobbing: :sobbing: :sobbing:
