Not that anyone cares about Fed Cup, but this performance would seem to justify her inclusion in the US team going up against Italy.

Likewise, Mattek held her own against Venus, in the sense that she wasn't humiliated in straights.

Maybe American tennis isn't in such a wretched state?

Alexa :yeah: I like her game and her attitude. Fed Cup was no fluke. And she could really be a threat on grass.

Flavia:hug:. She was injured. Her left leg was strapped. But she's a fighter, and a weaker opponent would have let her into the match.

Alexa didn't.

One big difference was that Alexa fought off 9 of 10 break points. That's the advantage of having a big game.

It's not like she was limping around the court out there. She was not at her best, obviously, but she was healthy enough to go on court and play an entire match without medical attention. Glatch was great today as well.

First of all i have to give credit to Alexa Glatch for playing a great match. She came out very strong right from the start. On the other hand, what an absolutely pathetic performance from Flavia. :( I can`t believe that she would get beaten this badly on her favorite surface. :sad: She was pretty much beaten mentally in the first set and ready to get out of there early in the second set. I don`t know what else to say. Flavia has been very disappointing on the clay this year other than Acapulco.

I'd like a new american to come through, but honestly, I don't think Alexa has the talent to even be top 30. Good win though.

i agree...this is even worse than the loss against Pratt 2 years ago :tape:

sucketta and shitkiri is just a hell of a team :worship::worship::worship:

Nothing, nothing can be worse than losing to Pratt on clay, I never knew that Flavia hit that low in her career... Alexa is a way better player than Nicole, so this canīt be worse, no matter the score...

Also, Alexa had some very convincing wins this season, so itīs not that bad

Pretty stunning and surprising result. Alexa seems to play hot-and-cold tennis. Hopefully, consistency will find its way into her game. This is a great win, and should be a confidence booster.

Sad for Pennetta, as I really like her. For those thinking she should have won with an injury, you obviously don't play much tennis. If she had a bad injury, it affects your play in major ways. I think it's clear that Glatch has the kind of game that can be overwhelming at times, though, so perhaps that was the main problem out there today for Pennetta.

Great win for Alexa. I really hope she can restore some faith in the USTA.

Glatch is certainly asserting herself as a deserving player to participate at the FED Cup final...

In her interview, Glatch said she was inspired by the upcoming USA vs Fed Cup final. Wanted to make a statement that she could play on red clay and not just on fast indoor courts like Brno. Said she wants to see Venus and Serena play so USA can win, but just really wants to be part of the team.

Glatch Top 50 wins this year: #14 Pennetta 6-1, 6-1(Red Clay), #22 Suarez Navarro 6-3, 6-1(Hard Outdoor), #29 Benesova 6-2, 6-1(Hard Indoor), #45 Kvitova 6-1, 6-2 (Hard Indoor).

Alexa has obvioulsy had a good couplee of months and I don;t mean this disrepsctfully to her but on clay, if I saw a 61 61 scoreline, i would have thought it would be Flavia that would have won.
Did anyone see the match?
Was alexa great or Flavia terrible or a bit of both?
I am shocked.
Very up and down year for Flavia, some shocking results to be honest...WTF is going on?

2 Fav's out, RG this is f'ed.

Well done Alex! Definitely did not expect a result like this. Keep it going for US tennis! :cool:

I watched Glatch play last year (I think) in Stanford against Sugiyama. She most have improved loads since then. Cause her game then was of the :help: variety.

Flavs must be suicidal now. Her quest for Top 10 just got loads harder.

Well said. I think it will be interesting to see how Glatch responds to this big win.

I'll bet the Italian team are feeling terrible about their chances in the Fed Cup final now. :unsure: They can't even have an advantage on clay. :help:

Alexa sounds like a young American on the rise and if she does well at the French she will give MJ plenty of food for thought for the fed cup final. I know it's not until November but they will be playing on clay and Alexa results between now and then will be worth watching. I heard she's being coached by Robert Van't Hof and if that true no wonder her results have improved. :)

I saw that too. That match was just a laugh riot.

I suppose that, when Glatch is serving big (stats for yesterday show her fastest serve at 193 km/h :eek: ), letting it rip with her FH, which I suppose has improved, and actually getting those BH slices and assorted junk in, she can be very tricky to play against as she'll give her opponents no rhythm whatsoever.

Preview of Fed Cup final! :devil: Get used to it, ITALY! :ras:
nope...the final is quite far and Flavia will refresh her mind...if it's not we have many other good clay courters so don't worry about our upcoming victory:lol:

Doesn't make any sense. Flavia was injured I guess. What kind of an injury?
wrist problems but moreover a 2cm strain and the thigh
I want Flavia as top 10 so badly , but she wastes chance after chance
we all, Flavia's fans, are accustomed :o
I'll bet the Italian team are feeling terrible about their chances in the Fed Cup final now. :unsure: They can't even have an advantage on clay. :help:
i don't think so...we had worse matches we won anyways so i think we could win...btw i think Glatch will lose next round:tape:

Alexa was coming back last year off of what were some really bad injuries from a motor scooter accident and is only now regaining the form that had many of us thinking she might be the next big thing from the US of A.

So you probably didn't see her at her best. Though she can still go into :help: mode sometimes.

What's wrong with Flavia? I thought she would make the top ten this year but the season was very disappointing so far!
