Heartbreaker :bigcry:

Until the 3-1 lead in the 3rd and maybe even that GP at *3-4 everything went according plan. :sad:

At least she shows she's capable of playing close matches against top players again. Next time she'll win. :cool:

:hug:

Good luck in 2R Aleks.

Great win for Aleks :) Stats show that both played quite well with a higher amount of winners than unforced errors. Monica also only missed 2 first serves in the entire 3rd set, and had a very high percentage throughout the match...Good fight at the end for Aleks though, could have let it slip away after missing some chances early in the 3rd but she kept plugging away and pulled it out :)

Good luck against Martic :)

Aleks winners/UEs ratio was negative at 1-3 in the third and ended up positive, so really Aleks must have raised her game level :yeah:

Monica :hug:

Yeah. Ditto. I thought Monica had this match in her back pocket. But it looks like Monica suffered meltdown once again. Very disappointing. :awww:

Not that it matters but interesting to note given the score that Monica actually won one more point that Aleks. Of course, when you drop five games in a row from 3-1 up in the third that tends not to count for very much. :sad:

Still I'm optimistic about the grass season. :shrug:

Well done Aleks. Nice fight back. :yeah:

Thanks God, that would've been a disaster to lose to Niculescu on clay. Especially since the draw is opening up nicely. Go Ola! :yeah:

Can i just say that i'm very impressed with the avatars in this thread:lol:

Wozniak throw is some spirited performances from time to time. Shame for Niculescu that it happened at RG, at a Slam where a good run wasn't inconceivable.

I would have wanted both girls to lose against almost everyone else in the draw :ignore: Still glad to see Wozniak got the win over Niculescu.

Shit....another chance blown.:sad:

The draw was looking good for Monica, shame she couldn't take advantage. I hope she can have a good grass season, hopefully she can make the most of her unorthodox game this time, because really, it should be quite effective on the grass courts.

I'm curious as to whether you play tennis yourself? I play competitively and think nothing of trailing 3-1 in the third. Nor do I think 3-1 is a safe lead in any set. Let a 5-1 lead slip and maybe it"s ckoking. But losing from 3-1 up in a match where your opponent hits more winners than errors, especially on clay hardly seems like choking!
