Match report:
Former Wimbledon quarter-finalist Michaella Krajicek cruised through her first round women’s qualifying match at Australian Open 2010 on Thursday, posting a comprehensive 6-3 6-2 win over Frenchwoman Claire Feuerstein.

Dutchwoman Krajicek, who turned 21 last week, played a solid serve-volley game to easily advance to the second round.

It was 23-year-old Feuerstein who grabbed the early advantage in the match, breaking Krajicek in her second service game.

Krajicek then stepped up a gear, breaking Feuerstein in successive service games and then setting up set point with her only ace of the opening set. She took the set 6-3 on the next point.

The former world No.30 didn’t let up in the early stages of the second set, breaking the Frenchwoman in the third game to take a 2-1 lead.

Krajicek, who won 85 per cent of points on her first serve in the second set, took advantage of Feuerstein’s errors to break again, and then served out the match 6-2, sealing the victory with a volley.

Krajicek, who is currently ranked No. 129, reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon 2007 at the age of 19, but has since been afflicted by a series of injuries. She will meet young British sensation Laura Robson in the next round after Robson toughed it out to defeat Australian Sophie Ferguson 6-4 2-6 6-4.

Michaella Krajicek from the Netherlands is one step closer to her fifth Australian Open main draw appearance after downing teenage British sensation Laura Robson 6-4 7-6(7) in the second round of qualifying on Friday.

It took some time for both the players to settle in to the match, as both lost their opening service games. Robson was the early aggressor, with Krajicek scrambling to defend and counter-punch. With scores level at 4-4, Krajicek made her move, changing her tactics on break point and chipping a second-serve return that forced Robson into error.

Robson continued to go for her shots at crucial times, and produced a special passing shot to save one set point. Krajicek steadied on the next point though, serving at Robson’s body to take the first set 6-4.

“Against Laura, you really have to serve well and play well in every point, otherwise she tries to hit it away,” Krajicek said.

Robson’s serve was immediately tested in the first game of the second set as Krajicek sensed an opportunity to pounce after the Brit opted for a medical timeout for treatment for a left shoulder complaint.

What followed was an epic game where Robson saved nine break points before hitting the ball into the net on Krajicek’s tenth break point opportunity. A pair of Krajicek double-faults in the next game immediately gave the break back to the Brit.

Robson looked like hitting her stride late in the second set as she held comfortably in the crucial ninth game, threatening to take the match to a decider.

Instead, Krajicek fought hard to force a tie-break, and eventually overcame Robson’s aggressive shot-making to prevail 9-7.

“It was very tough, Laura is a very talented girl, as everyone knows,” Krajicek said.

“It was a great match and I played very well, I was very happy with my performance.”

Krajicek said she was relieved the match did not go to a third set.

“Laura played better in the second set and it could have gone either way, it was up and down, so I was very happy to pull it out in two sets,” she said.

“I had to tell myself [to serve well] as it was getting hotter and hotter and the sun was getting more in the middle and it got much more difficult to serve.”

So dissapointing :(
She played bad, made lots of UE's. Kerber was just bringing balls back and either Misa hit a winner, but most of the times an UE :o

Goodluck in doubles with Domi :inlove:
