Good win for Flavia. :clap2: Her serve wasn`t all that good, but she did a good job of keeping it together and getting the win in straight sets. So this is a good start for Flavia.

BTW this is the first post i`ve ever started here. So i hope it isn`t too bad.

Kvitova has no game. ´Smash the ball as hard as i can, even though they are pratically hitting the back fence all the time´.

Flavia serve was ugly, but Good win :yeah: win the tournament

Flavia :banana: :D :)

this wasn't a good start:tape: so few first serves in and 8 df's :weirdo: no way she will beat Roby playing like this.
Kvitova :tape: what's so special about her??:rolleyes: moves so bad and altough is so tall has a bad serve:o

Kvitova must play tennis on football court, this is the ideal court for her shots, the actual tennis court is too small for her shots....

Well done Flavia. :D

Flavia :D This tournament is right up her alley.
I thought Petra was once hailed as the next best thing from the Czech Republic. What happened? :scratch:

Apr 13th, 2009, 04:35 PM
Flavia still up and down especially her serve.She took advantage of UE machine like Petra.
Maybe she at her best when draw Benesova.

I think Roby has a good shot at beating Flavia....she ahs been so consistent lately, I don't care who wins, they both need a good tournament, though Flavia must win it if she wants to get close to the top 10

Kvitova's tennis :help: (sorry her fans :hug:)

Fla :yeah:

Good start for Flavia but what happened to Petra since winning Hobart.

Apr 13th, 2009, 05:46 PM
Good win Flavia! She didn't play that good, but at least it was enough to beat Kvitova.

Flavia :clap2:

Flavia :hearts:
Keep going!

My hope for Flavia is that she can keep it up and I cross my fingers that she could take home the title in her home turf in Rome.

Good start for Flavia. Hopefully she can win this title and that will be a springboard to a fantastic clay season.

Apr 13th, 2009, 08:10 PM
From the stats, I am almost glad I didn't see the match ;) But serving like that and still winning comfortably in 2 sets will do for me. Now pick it up for the 2nd round please.

seems petra can challenge safina in the UE machine stakes, had to watch the men after a while cus this was horrible.

Apr 13th, 2009, 08:42 PM
Flavia :yeah:

Apr 13th, 2009, 09:39 PM
Great job Flavia!Hope she'll gain confidence and will win the title.She should gain a lot of points at this stage if she wants to be the first Italian to reach the top 10.C'mon girl!

Flavia :yeah:
