Well done Varvara. Simply amazing. Fran is soo tough to beat at Roland Garros, this is just amazing. She keeps fighting and these wins against Jankovic and Schiavone are truly deserved. GL for your next match :)

Pironkova should have beaten her the other day, but the brain got in the way.

Fran is so hittable. A lot of noise but not much pace.

There's usually enough on her shots.. what she lacks in pace, I think she makes up for in direction and spin.

Anyway, I'm sad to see one of my favorite players to watch lose, but Lepchenko is also fun to watch I'm learning.

Varva played some amazing tennis if you forget about the nerves when serving it out :lol: Sooooo happy for Varve's! Her father looked as if he was about ready to have a heart attack :hug: They've been through so much together :awww:

Franny :hug: I'm a huge fan of hers. Hopefully she'll get into better form this summer and play the 2013 season :)

Thats a very sad result for franny supporters and to go out probably of her last french open like that sad

Lepchenko is doing the buisness though well done.

i feel really sorry for Fran, mostly because going out on her last RG on a horrible match like that probably wasn't her hope...but Varvara kept moon balling all the time and it turned out to be the right strategy, though the show was horrid because of that

Why do people feel so sorry for Fran? She has been playing shit tennis for awhile now and her ranking is back to reality...160 points is actually too generous for this tournament anyways considering how horrific her results have been...Pironkova should have taken her out in R2...Schiavone is a washed up irrelevant hack and everyone knew her ranking would plummet here...Great job Varvara for taking out the trash and keeping the OG dream alive...Schiavone, congrats for returning to your rightful place among the irrelevant shit tennis club players...Good riddance, Bitch

Didn't see the match, but the result is not entirely unexpected, she has been struggling for form all year. Still, most would die for her RG record of recent years, so she can hold her head up.

Not the best tennis but still entertaining final set.

So many long matches for Lepchenko! She did well to get across the finish line in this one as I thought she had blown her chances serving for it the first time. I don't think she will have much left in the tank for Kvitova...

Kvitova's draw :rolleyes:

Every top player's draw to the quarters is a bit of a joke except for
Section 3 (Aga) and
Aga, Sveta, Ana, Errani, Venus

Section 7 (Serena)
Serena, Gorges, Wozniacki, Kanepi

Made even worse by most of the lower seeds failing to live up to their seeding. It's not localized to just Petra. :rolleyes:

Love Franny, but met Varvara in DC and she was really nice. She's been through soooo much. Am over the moon for her about this tourney...and really, really hope she makes the team. (Like Sloane too, but she's young and will have another chance.)

Didn't get to see this match (demmit!), as we had a tornado go down our street yesterday.Fortunately it only took out lots of trees and some roofs and no one was hurt. But... No power. (Am @ MickeyD's stealing their wifi and catching up!) Fortunately, I've learned that it's strong enough to stream...so likely we be hanging out here some. ;)

I am not a real fan but I love her story and she deserves it
Sloane is young and will make Rio
I see a potentiala upset of Kvitova for Varvie but not one of Sam for Sloane

Lepchenko is really playing some good tennis, but to be honest she had so much luck playing against Empress and Fransexa. Otherwise I doubt she would be in R4.... I hope she snatches the OG place :yeah:

Jun 2nd, 2012, 03:27 PM
I just some of the 2nd set. In the 7th game Fran had BPs, should have taken her chances, to try and win in 2.

Varvara!!!

Who would have thought the American women would have put up such a good fight on clay. No Williams, but McHale nearly got Li Na, Varvie takes out Schiavone, and Sloane is into the fourth round.

Amazing tournament for the non-Williams Americans.
