Well done Dechy :clap2: Coming back in the TB was very impressive :yeah:
Peng was hopeless in the TB :help: Well, pretty much in the whole match, only her BH was good :tape:

shuai :smash: she insisted in playing on nath's Forehand instead of backhand...so frustrating. shuai has the talent but she can't think! so frustrating!

Shuai's shot selection is the worst I've ever seen, including club level tennis! :help:

7:6* in the TB. What does she do? Moonballing on carpet. Ball goes two meters long.

I've watched the match and trust me, the idea of Chinese people being mentally strong is a myth.

What a :crazy: tiebreak! :lol:

Nathalie was down 0:5 and 1:6 and saved 6 SP!!! :eek: :)

In first set Nathalie won the set after Shuai was leading 40:0 on own serve.

Nathalie :yeah:

I left when Peng leading 6:1 in 2nd set tie-break,and I thought it was going into the third.When I came back a few minutes later the score vanished :unsure: ,I wondered if anyone had retired.Couldn't believe Nath did close this out in 2. :eek:

Shuai has the most awkward movement for a top100 player for sure. She made Nathalie look like a prima ballerina.

True. For someone that plays bothhanded she should really have better footwork and movement :help:

Wow Nathaloche, her best win in ages :yeah:. She was not even playing that well, just very solid with a high first serve %. Peng seemed so exhausted on the other side. Congrats Nath'!

RU kidding? Le Placid Parisian could sometimes give Smash competition as a backboard. :o (OK, she's not from Paree, and Big Brown Eyes lives with her hubby in BEL now, its poetic license. Pauline Parmentier :hearts: is le real PP Francais anyhow). I don't know who's more unpredictable, Pretty Peng or Na-na-na. No wonder Chang "got out of Dodge" as China Doll's coach. :help:
