Nice choke by Claire, who was up 4*-0 in third :hug: Must feel quite sucky to blow such an opportunity to make R3 of a Slam. :hug:

Oh Claire what a choke :o Up 4-0* broken just once in the match and then she forgot how to serve :bigcry:

Decent quality match overall (watched most of it)...Nina played very clean, only 14 UEs for the matches. Good luck in R3 :yeah: Second GS R3 of the year :)

Claire you f*cked up Suicide Tennis for me :sobbing:

Awful match! Bratchikova is such a powerless player, while Feuerstein is up then doooooooown, down, down, then a little bit up and again she goes down.

Third set was :weirdo: Feuerstein 4-0 up, then Bratchikova *5-4 and in the end she managed to win. Neither should be in R3 :rolleyes:

What's going on with Bratchikova and the Slams? :lol: Another R3.
She's never lost before R3 at a Grand Slam (main draw). :worship:

Saw some of the end. Claire has 0 weapons, plus couldn't keep the ball in.

Nina screams like a warrior woman out of Game of Thrones :lol:

If you saw the first set you would realise that she does have weapons... she has a decent serve and an excellent whip angle forehand.... you saw her when she was choking like mad.

What? :spit:
Feuerstein has a lot of weapons. Her problem is that she is inconsistent. Bratchikova was only returning the ball in the first set, Feuerstein was owning her. Now, she colapsed and lost in the end.

Yep, and has never played the main draw of Wimbledon or the US Open. At the rate she's going, will be Top 50 by the end of the summer :hearts:

Two Slam 3Rs and will still be barely in the Top 100.

...that is unless she beats Kvitova, which she probably will. :crying2:

Bratchikova is better than I though. She always goes for the winner, and doesn't even make a lot of errors.
Feuerstein can be a Top 100 player with very hard work, but nothing more I think :shrug:
Nina in R3 :spit: She must get a bit of continuity, if she doesn't want to become a living joke :p

I remember seeing Bratchikova losing at USO qualies a few years back. nice to see her finally doing well in slams.
