:lol::rolleyes: I expected Roby to win, but Flavia...this is embarassing...9 DF and 0 aces...she is not improving, and this is was "her" BArcelona, she should have won the tournament.....I do notknow what is wrong with her...win the title Roby !;) clay is one of her worst surface, so maybe we can expect a great grass court season from Roberta

At the start of the year there was a small but clear window of opportunity for Flavia to get into the top 10. I am afraid with this loss it looks like that window has closed shut, at least for the forseeable future. Shame. :sad:

Really surprised to see Vinci playing so well on clay. But it wouldn't surprise me right now to see Roberta have an outstanding grass season. None of the seeds will want to face Vinci, in this form, in the early rounds at Wimbledon that's for sure.

Vinci is surprisingly good on clay ATM. :D Her game is so suited to grass so maybe she can do a Tanasugarn at Wimby.

Flavia :o

Well done, Roberta! :yeah:

She played really well against Jelena in Marbella, so this result doesn't really surprise me.

Flavia, get it together!

good win Roberta

though i would have thought her game would be ore suited to clay than any other service...

i don't understand how she is well suited to grass, she doesn't have any big weapons does she? or none that i can remember...

Hmm..This victory doesn't necessarily surprise me, but the score line does. Flavia seems to be falling apart like most of the Top 20.

When you see Medina #18 in the rankings you see there is something going on in the Top 20 :haha:

Thanx for the sympathy:hug:

I fully expected a loss, but the scoreline is bad :o


Flavia's getting worse it seems. Hope she fixes herself (and her serve:p) soon:awww:

She slices her opponents to death :pRoby used to S&V a lot on grass too, but she seems to use that tactic less often recently. When I saw her at Wimby qualies last year she hardly did it at all.

I have to say that sucky is an understatement on how badly Flavia played. :( :help: I had some concerns about her entering today`s match, but i didn`t think that she would stink up the joint. I really hope that Flavia can get her game, mainly her serve, straightened out soon. Otherwise she`s wasting a good opportunity in what should be her best part of the season.

One thing i've noticed with Flavia- she struggles to generate any kind of power off no-pace, floating shots. So strange for someone with such good footwork and generally great racquet preperation.

Vinci has a beautiful game, especially when she runs around the backhand to hit the forehand. Has such competent skills at net too which is a treat to the eyes. Really exposed Flavia's lack of a passing shot today.

Eek... That's horrific :weirdo:

The bottom half of that draw is really wide open now... maybe Vaidisova can take advantage? (I'm actually rooting for Kirilenko, but unfortunately she's in the top half.)

Flavia its official YOU SUCK. Get it together for the Fed Cup girl and the rest of the clay season otherwise bye bye to the top 20.

Vinci was playing well in Marbella from what I've seen. But I didn't expect Pennetta to get trashed like this.

Well done Roberta! Flavia :shrug:

Flavia not being able to pass a player like Vinci on red clay of all surfaces.
