A high quality match (not higher then the Budapest's one but the two girls have been tired) between two very good clay players.

Vinci was dead tired and a bit injured in the end but Begu is a good player i see her as the favourite for the tournament now, she can easily beat the corpse of pennetta in the final (if she makes the final)

At least she took revenge, but I would have prefered winning on Sunday... :spit:

When she choked away those 2 MPs at the end, I feared the worst, but she was able to close it out this time! :D

Next one is AMG who she beat at Budapest. Would be too ironic if she takes revenge to Vinci now, but therefore loses to Anabel who is probably one of those players you don't want to face if you are tired... :unsure:

She'll more likely face Pironkova, in which case Tsveti would be the favorite.

Roby. :sad: But I'm confident she can produce some good form on the US hard-courts. :) I really hope she'll break the top-20.

Nice way to avenge last week. She hit the ball very well and should have a good chance to win.

At the moment between Tsvetana and Flavia, Pironkova is the favourite, Flavia almost lost with Johansson, but i still think Flavia will win

finally i have to say that Vinci's new fitness trainer is doing a miracle, one year ago she wasn't even able to play a match at her full potential because she wasn't in shape and wasn't able to mantain an high level through all the match, and now in one month she won two titles 3rd round at wimbledon 2nd here, so isn't it 14 wins and two losses? Plus all the doubles! Great job really

This Begu somehow reminds me Safina playing style wise - solid off both wings and has a nice BH slice DTL. Doesn't make silly errors and is a tough competitor. Could have a nice future on clay and win French Open one day if stars will align for her

Very smart from Begu to wear down Vinci in the Budapest final. Instead of winning the 3rd set 6-1, Begu extended the match to suck the life out of Vinci and then hunted her down. Followed her all the way to Vinci´s backyard, and finished her off in brutal fashion in the 2nd round of Palermo. Vinci might have won the battle, but she just lost the war. :p :worship:

:woohoo:

And I just complained about the fact that we won't see her again in her thread because Errani seemed to be fix on CC! :spit:

I like and respect both players but as Roberta has already picked up two titles in the last couple of months I'm quite happy to see someone else get a crack at this weeks event. Roberta could do with a little break anyway. Hopefully she can continue her good form on the US hard courts and crack that top 20.

As for Irina she really does look like she has a heck of good game on clay in the future. It is very easy to see her in the top 30 within the next year and from there who knows how much further she will progress. I don't know if Irina is going to win this title or not but I don't believe it will be too long before she does win a WTA event. She does seem to have all the necessary qualities to be a formidible player on clay for at least the next 5 or 6 years, perhaps more.

the vital point is it is in Vinci´s backyard. its like a Sicillian revenge drama. the match has no importance, only the matter of doing it in front of her family and friends :yeah:

Roberta:(:hug: The only one seed who didn´t make QF.

7 out of 8 seeded players advanced QF @Palermo :cool:
All top 7 seeds were knocked out in 1st round, only Pervak (seed 8) survived @ Bad Gastein :help:

Good stuf from Irina. :cool: She's looking more and more impressive with every week.

A Hercog-Begu final would be great.
