Dreadful. Two losses in a row to Kirilenko is shameful for a standard top 20 player, let alone a double grand slam champion. Enjoy being the former for a while now, Sveta. Maybe it’ll give you a much needed kick up the ass :o

Disgusting :o
Really disappointing to see, Kirilenko again did not much at all, just kept the ball in in the end and it was enough :o
Sveta wasted it all, *20 in 3rd set, had it all under control and then she started to suck again, really terrible 2010 so far...
Well, she won at least 2 rounds, should have lost already against Petkovic, but she was too stupid to keep the ball in at MP!

What a great win for Makiri. :clap2: I`m really pleased with how poise she was in the tough situations throughout the match, especially when she was down 0-2 at the beginning of the third set and then saving those BPs later on. I`m really happy for Makiri that she got herself another big win in a GS. :)

I only started watching around the end of the 2nd set. I'm still shocked several minutes later after the match's over. Heck, i was shocked that Kuzzie got behind in the 3rd. ...and honestly, I guess her next real shot at another GS trophy would be at Flushing, New York. Nice work by shortie Maria though.

At the Oz she defeated Safina who's now out of top-10. At the French she defeated Kuznetsova who is now out of top-10. Bold prediction: at Wimbledon Masha will defeat Dementieva who's gonna be out of top-10 too.

Btw, Kuznetsova's loss means that for the first time since US Open 2003 there will be only 1 Russian in the top-10.

Well fully expected Kuznet just delayed the inevitable but I'ld have prefered a victory of Petkovic over Kuznet in the previous round, good job Lil' Masha. :yeah: Kuznet out the top 15 well she's been playing like a top 30 player and not like a top 10 player lately so future ranking fully deserved.

Sveta :sad: :( was hoping she would get her game together after digging out a win against Petkovic the other day, but she still seems to be lost on court. Hopefully she can pick it up during the 2nd half of the year :shrug:

Happy for Maria though. She's already done well at the 1st 2 slams this year; anything else would be a bonus. If she can reach the QF here that would be :hearts:

Dulko aways beat 1 good player in the slams, next round she'll loose.
