high quality match from both, with many long rallies...a really nice match to be watched...
here the interviews in italian :p
Flavia Pennetta: ”Sapevo che Alona è una giocatrice solida e che dovevo giocare meglio di quanto avevo fatto ieri se volevo batterla - ha raccontato la numero uno azzurra -. Nei momenti in cui mi sono trovata in svantaggio, soprattutto quando lei ha servito sia per il primo che per il secondo set, credo di aver dato il massimo e di aver giocato il mio tennis migliore. Soprattutto non ho mai mollato: una regola base nel tennis di oggi dove nessuna ti regala niente. Proprio in Fed Cup - ha aggiunto la 27enne brindisina - bisogna entrare in campo sempre rispettando l’avversaria, perché in questo tipo di gara i valori possono venire completamente stravolti. In qualsiasi momento”.

Alona Bondarenko: ”Mi aspettavo che Flavia potesse giocare così - ha detto la maggiore delle sorelle ucraine -. D’altronde lei è una tennista che vale le top ten. Certo ho qualche rimpianto per le occasioni che non ho sfruttato di chiudere il set."

translated -sorry for eventual mistakes-
Flavia: "I knew Alona was a solid player and i had to play better than yesterday to beat her. In the important points, mostly when she served for the first and later for the second set, i played my best tennis. Most of all i've never given up: that's the basic rule in tennis, none gives you anything. in fed cup you have to respect your opponent because often the ranking means nothing here and the values can change, in every moment"

Alona: "I expected Flavia to play that good, she's a girl who deserves the top 10. i had something to complain with myself, mostly when i was serving for the set"

:p

Flavia is pretty decent as a pusher. She just waited for Bondarenko to self-destruct. And if it didn´t happen, she negotiate some points to her favour.

Alona was leading 5-4 on her serve in both sets and somehow managed to lose them :o If only she could calm down those nerves and focus on the game. Funny how she was arguing and yelling at her team all the time. She's a little :cuckoo:
:help:

She was in this match. Who controlled the majority of the rallies? It was Bondarenko, who won and lost the majority of the points. That doesn´t make Pennetta a pusher as such, just like Aga is not a powerhouse, because she hit a few more winner than usual against Wickmayer.
