This girls enjoys walking the tightrope it seems. Two matches in a row she has won after losing the first set 0-6. WTF?

Good luck in R2 anyways. :lol:

:haha: LMAO. I wonder if this match was as bad as it seemed on the scoreboard? Mel had so many chances to consolidate about 100 breaks of serve in the 2nd set but blew it.

Is Michelle really touted as a future #1? No really?

I wonder why Michelle plays the 1st set... It would be more useful if she went for a ride and then come back to play something in 2nd and 3rd set... :rolleyes:

She even said that she likes to go to the court without knowing how her opponent plays... I think the bagels are already explained... :tape::tape:

Michelle :worship: Do your best in your 2nd round match (so, try to win the 2nd and 3rd set and try also to don't loose the 1st set by 6-0) :p:p

Comment from Sarah Borwell on GB Tennis Girls having actually watched the match.

I have just returned from Mels match and I was intrigured to see what you guys were saying about it:) the words failure and British mentality sprung to mind and unfortunatly i wasnt wrong. i can understand by watching it maybe by the point by point score tracker you could easily think that Mel choked and started playing poorly,you thankfully would be very wrong in your assumption. The match was possibly the most absorbing match I have ever seen, fought on so many different levels and at the highest standard throughout.The young girl hit her way out of trouble on numerous occasions and didn't play badly at all in the first,mel just defended well and made the girl have to hit one more amazing shot each time. If you had been watching you woudl have realised that the second set was going to be a *** fight. 6 0 sets are always hard and never really give you the full view of the match, if its against 2 good players. Mel didn't sit back, she didnt choke and she didnt let her standard drop, she was immense and as brit I am amazingly proud of how well Mel played today. First match in 7 weeks, you would never have guessed!

I just wanted to write and let you know it is not all doom and gloom, there is no failure on Mels part and i think after the disapointment of losing, she will be very proud of how she equipped herself!!! The stats and score tracker never really gives the full picture and in this instance it certainly didnt.

Yes, and lost her serve to love next... and that happened every time she broke Michelle serve. In the last set Michelle had chances to break to lead 5-2 and 5-3 in the next game... had match point at 5-4 and wasted 4 at least 5 match points. I don´t remember when South had an advantage to win the match.

I think for a 16 year old girl with a terrible attitude congratulations are quite in order. She is able to come back in many matches and be mentally strong, something this generation of girls is missing. Tennis is 99% mental and about 1% piggy squeels.
Plus the fact that she is able to go on court and figure her opponent bodes well for her future. Should be nice to see a player that doesn't throw their service toss to the right as to catch a glimpse of their player box.
