She played really well the 1st half of the match, then she stressed a bit and Stosur was playing better. The 3rd set wasn't so good with many UE from Stosur but i liked the fact that Maria took her opportunities when she could and that she didn't give up after the 2nd set. She'll have her chances against Ana who played poorly today according to the commentators.

Yeah Ana did not play that well at all. Robson was overpowering her and Ana was even down a double break in the 2nd. Could be a good match.

Maria :worship: :woohoo:

Honestly I thought she would have lost after the 2nd set choke. But thanks god I was mistaking ! I'm so happy Maria stayed calm and finally win this match. Stosur was clearly beatable today, it was a great opportunity to beat her, and Maria did it :worship:

Good luck tomorrow against the other beauty queen of the WTA. Ana is beatable theoritically. Come on Maria :cheer:

In that case, I don't think it's relevant, because it was a clean winner. She's done it before, like vs Masha in AO 2010. I've seen other players do it.:shrug: Novak does it as well...

Thanks, Maria stayed focused and Ana was playing really badly, especially on her backhand :help:

It's ridiculous that even though its a QF again we won't be able to watch her play.

It's a disgrace :mad:
She's not playing against random players, Ivanovic former n1 and slam winner (plus she is pretty and consequently very popular), Bepa former n2 and solid top 10... But no way too see her play...
