No words :help:

Meli had a 6-3 5-1 lead and a 5-2 lead in the TB of the 2nd set (wasted 4 Match Points).

In the final set she wasted a 5-2 and a 6-5 lead :help:

Tamira┤s choke was not that pathethic.

Jelena had a lot of luck with the netcord and fighted very well.

So no comparison with Tamira :p

Klaffner has tor retire. Should get punished for such matches. Never seen somebody who is mentally so weak

Wow. what a crazy match & great fight by Szavay.

But all in all it seems like Austrian Players really love playing in Austria & have very good results there (Meusburger, Klaffner, Mayr, ... ) :)

But was really a heavy choke. She could have won the match quite easy :o

Tamira and Sybille should have played here as well ... but i guess even here they would lose in the first round :lol: :tape:

Agnes :hearts::kiss: :hearts::kiss:Yay for you-congrats for barely escaping a straight set thrashing at the hands of someone so lowly ranked as this! :yeah::bigclap::clap2::bowdown:

Seriously Agnes, time to get in gear!! So many points that will need defending in the next few months...

Why must she be a headcase? Well I guess it's better to be a headcase AND a fighter than just a choker. Still Agnes...:help:

What a dramatic match... I am not sure about a choke here. It seems both of the girls fought to the last point, however I did not see the match. Good run for Melanie here :hatoff: and congrats to Agnes for the win :yeah:

I┤m fed up with the nail biter-losses from the Austrians this year (Tamira x 2, Melanie, Patricia)

┴gi: a win is a win but still... :(

Even though Melanie was defeteated in the end she almost beat a player who is ranked more than 300 places higher than her. so Melanie :worship:

Well done Agnes :yeah:. Better than a loss to Klepac but such a scoreline is terribly, terribly embarrassing ... No actually this choke wins it all :lol:!

Szavay is ranked too high. Her game is pretty boring and nearly getting trashed by somebody ranked outside the top 200 is really embarassing.

Choking is a rite of passage for all players. How you respond to these losses is what defines your career.

Melanie :hug:

I saw her playing here in Argentina in Fed Cup last February and she impressed me. She lost a match and saw her crying, because she knew she could won, so I felt so pity that she took my heart :hearts:

I think she has a lot of potential, I she`s one of my favorites. So sad she lost so badly today, but there is another girl at the other side of the net, and she wants to win too.
