Chan lead 5-1 in the first set, then Elena won 9 games in a row to lead 7-5 3-0 :haha:

Good test for the Olympic Gold Medalist, keep it up!

It was a good quality match. Both of them hit amazing shots and played long and entertaining rallies.

At least it was better than Craybas vs. Date-Krumm. :rolleyes:

Even with Chan up 5//1 in the first, I knew Elena would win the set and the match in straights.

WTG Lena!

I'd say it's more of typical Chan. But well, at least she was finding it back to get to 5-7 3-4*, rather than letting it go easily. Btw, she looks lovely with new Lacoste outfit. :kiss:

No doubt. Elena's the better player. GReat mentality (?) to stay calm and win it in straights. :)

Is she still playing with a Wilson stick?

By the way, I still think she and Chuang made a HUGE mistake by breaking up their doubles team. They were more successful together than they ever will be apart.

I thought she'd stay with Adidas but she's now with Lacoste, and I always love Lacoste.(And she's speaking French during the time-outs with her coach quite fluently; thats another surprise.) :hearts: But yes, she is still with Wilson.

Well, we can't do nothing on it. It's their decision after all. The only thing we can do is to hope for the best.

I swear to God Lena has 7-5 scorelines when she has a bye. Lena, Lena, Lena, why do you love to take years off your fans' lives?

Why is Elena even playing here ?

Surely she'll want as many points as possible...

And Sydney is a premier event.

No, that was typical Yung-Jan. Latisha would have closed the set out.
