Awesome turn around Anne! And great 3rd set, won most games to 15 :D :D :D :banana:

First Premier QF for Anne, great for her, and a winnable next match v Olaru or Georges!

Very good come-back and result form Anne, against a player she has previously struggled against. Looks like she finally worked out how to play Craybas, although it looked like she was helped somewhat by a whopping 13 DF's from her opponent (ouch! :eek:).

Brilliant result Anne! Lets get the semis and play Masha (hopefully) :)

Sam saying on eurosport that she reckons its the first brit in a WTA clay QF since mid eighties.

Anne :) I was a little worried at the start of the second set but she pulled through.

I remember seeing Anne vs. Craybas in St. Paul Minnesota, 50K way back in 2003 I believe. She has come a long way. Great to see her doing so well!

Great stuff Anne ;) I would expect Olaru or Goerges to both be tougher opponents than Jill on clay, but they can both be very patchy too so Anne definitely is in with a chance if she can play a solid match :)

who would have thought anne's first big quarter-final would come on clay? lol

would be amazing if she could get to the semis here, although goerges will be tough to get by (presuming she beats raluca)

Definitely a winable QF against Olaru.

That should show all the players who hate the red stuff that with some proper training they can do well on it.

Go Anne, hope she reaches semis and gets to play Maria :D

Great work, Anne - that's 120 points in the bag so far, great to see her taking advantage of this weakened Premier draw despite the fact that it is on her worst surface. Looks like she's heading back into the top 50. Let's hope she can beat Olaru next - presumably the Romanian will be shattered after her see-saw win over Goerges. :D

Its not like she has benefitted from the weakened draw yet tho, so really its cool :D

Anne :kiss: A year ago a QF of a tournament of this level, on clay, would have sounded ridiculous! Very winnable match against Olaru, best of luck

forget Evert, or Henin...

Keothavong is the clay GOAT! :p

i'm so proud of you Anne, though i can't see you getting past Olaru if you're going to be so inconsistent...the girl just doesn't seem to miss!

Lol, no Raluca is one of the most inconsistent players usually.
