Choker Scheepers had the Lead in the first set and could close it out

Huh :eek:

I check the scoreboard and Scheepers was up 4-1* 40-15 and she could win a game from there in the first :eek:

Nice fight. Scheepers is a solid player who has been doing well in 2012 so this is a good win for Christina. I have no doubt she is going to beat Peng and set up another match with Jankovic. :yeah:

Great job Xtina!!!!! ;)

She continues to beat people she should, and has a really good chance against Peng, who she has beaten before and is nursing that injury

Chanelle :hug: Tough opener, McHale has been playing very confident tennis, I've been impressed with the improvements she's made in her game in the past year - Definitely moving in the right direction right now

Lol....Im pretty sure Peng handed McHale a bagel in Tokyo...and didnt McHale choke like 4 games to Yakimova at Fed Cup?? Her wins against Peng and were close, so hate on bitches who think McHale is a shoein for the 3rd round...Im sure ShuShu wants a third round against JaJa, especially after that WO she gave her in Cincy last year...Go Shuai!!

Took the words right out of my mouth. What I like is that she beats those she should ( very mentally tough) and can still pull the occasional upset over higher ranked players. Just needs to get a bit stronger and develop her all around game, especially the service.

I've always thought Christina's serve is pretty strong for her height and in general.

Good job, Christina

I saw a self assessment she made at the US Open last year and she said she needed a bigger serve as it was not up to the level of her strengths such as her forehand. I do admit I have not seen many of her matches this year so I cannot say if it has not improved in 2012.
