Why is Gabriel Urpi out?

Glad Flavia pulled through. Patches of great play from her.

mental strenght was missed tonight in Doha...did anyone know where those two girls left it? :lol:

anw Flavia did a nice job closing it out, she had more winners and less errors and still was one step away from losing :lol:

My impression of the match was that it was surprisingly low quality, although nevertheless entertaining for its competitiveness and the likability of the players involved. That impression was pretty much confirmed when Flavia was interviewed. It was pretty obvious from the interview that while relieved and happy to have got through Flavia was not pleased at all with how she played.

Flavia! :rocker2:
Awful quality match really. Flavia choked away the whole second and tried to choke again in the third, but Domi did a better work at it. :tape:
Anyway the draw is quite good for Flavia, if she finds the form she needs, because of the recent stop with the back injury, she could go further. :)

^ flavia is a rythm player so i'm not surprised she didn't play well ;)

Ye ah

Feb 14th, 2012, 08:54 PM
terrible match :lol: both girls tried with efforts to lose it...Domi successed in it :tape:

Good for Flavia's confidence :yeah: but I think she won't go further here in Doha :sobbing:

oh thank god. I was worried when domi kept breaking her, but domi choked on cue each time. Few.

What a bad Doha day for Slovak players. Domi sucks lately and Daniela never wins after having won Pattaya though

Congratz Flavia i guess *sigh*
