Maria and Nadia [5] won their first round match against Govortsova/Voskoboeva (BLR/KAZ) 63 63 !! :)
let's hope it can give her some confidence for the singles match tomorrow...
pennetta leads by 5-2 in the head 2 head series, and she won ALL of the last 5 matches :(
..but all of them on hardcourt, and I don't know about her fitness, wasn't she lightly injured lately? so come on kiri, put an end to this series, you can do it! :)

first set goes to pennetta!! awful service game by kiri, maybe she already was in the 2nd set in her mind...

I had to leave the live stream after pennetta broke for 5-5, I was so frustrated and it was hurting so badly :bigcry:

another huge choke from kiri, letting go away a 5-1 lead....I guess she will never stop with those chokes :rolleyes:

but it wasn't easy for her, the crowd celebrated EVERY single point from her local player, even on unforced errors from maria..

poor kiri :hug:

now put all your focus on the doubles, and get back some self confidence, go girls :cheer:

peterlein
May 16th, 2012, 10:08 PM

so of course, the crowd will be on the Italian side again. It will be a tough match, but yeah, why not a win? ;)

KIRIII, NADIAA! :cheer: :cheer:
