Both had three match points (Rezai at 5-4) before the match was suspended at 7-7 :scared: Both had serving struggles after the resumption and Nadia eventually served it out.

Nadia Petrova the most consistent Russian this year :hysteric:

StephenUK
May 29th, 2010, 11:41 AM
Only saw it today so can't comment on the rest of the match. Tepid ending from Aravane whose inability to win her own serve meant that it was just a question of whether Nadia would continue to choke. This was always going to be a tough match as Nadia has been on good form on clay too and is so much more experienced. So the caravan must go in for a few repairs, she still needs a bit of fine tuning!

Just hope Nadia is not too tired and is ready to face Venus Williams as I am sure she is well capable of beating her on this surface.

Midnight_Robber
May 29th, 2010, 11:41 AM
There was some great ball-striking by both, but Nadia should have won this over but finally asserted herself. She deserved her win. Nadia was hitting the ball extremely well, and her movement is looking very good. Whoever emerged from this match is going to be sharp.

There is nothing worse than people proclaiming that a person is going to win the entire tournament just because they win 1 tournament before a slam. It is known that top players do not exert themselves a few weeks before a slam. When the draw came out & I saw this potential match up I knew that Rezai would lose. She has never beaten Petrova their h2h is now 3-0 in favor of Petrova. The hype machine has been silenced.

Congrats Nadia:cheer2:

Petrova should have won it in 2 sets yesterday, but at least she got job done at last. I dont hate Rezai or anybody else from players, but reality check is good for her and for her fans also. And all this hype was ridicilous anyway, zillion Rezai- threads , articles and interviews everywhere like she was some most important person in tennis 2010 or future GOAT.Well, she is not. She is just a good player who managed to win big tournament right before slam, nothing very special or extraordinary here. It happened before , it happens again.
As for Petrova, good fight from her, but she`ll probably go out in next round.

Aravane doesn't get enough credit.She had a great clay season, dealt relatively well with the pressure of playing here as the only french hope (coming off her big win in Madrid), and only lost 10-8 in the 3rd against an in-form nadia.Talking only about her results, she did pretty well.

Before Madrid she beat Ruano Pascal, Morita and went 1-1 with Malek. She also lost to Vinci and Petkovic. After Madrid she beat El Tabakh and scraped by Kerber. The 1 tournament in between was certainly great though.

And what about this match now? She lost it but she proved she was able to keep up her Madrid level of play. She just ran into a very good player. She can't win all the time, it's just stupid to write her off because her winning streak is over. No one is invincible.
If Aravane had an easier draw, she could have gone far. I know it's easy to say that but just don't forget how well she has been playing for the last days.

We'll see how she deals with the grass season now.
I totally agree with homogenius' statement.

Rezai is a tremendous player, but things can get tough when you face "The Matron." "The Iranian Soldier" has a bright future ahead of her. Rezai has already earned over a million dollars this season with the money she earned at Roland Garros. She has already proved she can be quite an entertainer in a sport that desperately needs it.

Nadia will never beat Venus, Aravane would have had a better chance.Maybe, but she has beaten Serena in Madrid and Beijing, and beat Kim and Sveta at the AO.
So if she beats Venus, it looks like she is a player multiple slam winners cant assume is an automatic win

Mjms was injured.Rezai could easily be in the quarters had it been for a better draw,even so it took a choke to lose to an in form experienced clay courter.

Petrova choked too, even worse in the sense that you could say she was clearly the better player during the entire match.

Expected result.

I had Caravane losing to Petrova at the prediction thread.

Caravane was unspeakably awful in those few games they played today. All Petrova had to do was to keep the ball deep enough.

soo much hate for caravane lol

I don't hate her because the tour needs some fresh and new blood. some girls that will step up to the plate and rock it out. Not girls who just trash talk. Let your game do the talking.

Go see "In the locker room" with Verdasco as the picture.

Petrova's facial expression is EPIC.
