Quite boring match imo. Melinda was too inconsistent.

Well done Flavia, very solid, looked like just another match for her:cool:

Now vs Petkovic, that will be interesting.

Too vulnerable with her movement out-wide to the backhand from Czink. Anytime the ball was driven deep into her backhand corner, she looked instantly incapacitated, having neither the footwork nor hand-skills to dig out a decent enough defensive shot.

Some nice flashy hitting, but it's rarely sustained from Czink. Her backhand can get late and mishitty. It's too much of a weakness against Pennetta who is able to hit with depth, decent margins and change direction well. Pennetta always exposes these kind of players, very much like she did against Kleybanova last week.

Melinda doesn't work... She has 76 points in this year. The last year was great, but this...:awww::help:
