Re: Cheering thread: AO - WDR3 with Makarova!

Lena had Kate had an excellent record against H+H. It's a shame they split up.

Don't know how this one will go. Could be tricky if Kate has another draining match against Konta.

Re: Cheering thread: AO - WDR3 with Makarova!

I also was watching Makarova, but when I saw Lena, who was broken at 4-3, broke back to serve for set 1 at 5-4 and I switched to Lena's match. And as I watched I could see Brady was outplaying her by a lot. So in the 2nd set I went back to Makarova/Cibulkova. But Kate has a tough draw.
Lena had a nice looking draw, but you have to hold serve and play better in a tie break than that
Anyway, Kate is playing well and maybe they can win some doubles matches

Re: Cheering thread: AO - WDR3 with Makarova!

Didn't really see much of the match thanks to her doubles partners antics on Rod Laver.

But every time I did tune in Lena was making an error...

Oh well, a couple of (hopefully!) winnable doubles matches coming up.

Re: Cheering thread: AO - WDR3 with Makarova!

Lena was outplayed and it was clear who the better player was.
On to doubles

Re: Cheering thread: AO - R3 Brady / WDR3 with Makarova!

Fell 67(4) 26

Couldn't hold onto two breaks in the first set, and failed to serve it out.

Such a missed opportunity to reach Rd16 again. Welp, at least she reached the third round.

Re: Cheering thread: AO - R3 Brady / WDR3 with Makarova!

Lena is playing a US player, just served for set 1 and was broken, 5-5

Don't like Lena playing a qualifier. These are the sorts of situations she has struggled with in the past.

Fingers crossed!

Final score against Minella: 63 63.

Qualifier Jennifer Brady is next.

Re: Cheering thread: AO - R2 Minella / WDR2 with Makarova!

Nice easy win in round 2. Now its showtime, the rest of the way

Re: Cheering thread: AO - R2 Linette or Minella / WDR1 with Makarova!

I was so confident New Improved Lena wouldn't mess it up I went to bed after the first set.

Mandy Minella next.

Re: Cheering thread: AO - R1 vs Bogdan / WDR1 with Makarova!

Defeats Bogdan, 75 62

First MD win here since 2013.

Re: Cheering thread: ...

Assuming Aga reaches the 4th round its hard for me to imagine Lena getting past her, but if Lena can find some of last seasons form there is chance here to at least equal her best AO runs. Fingers crossed...

The doubles draw is pretty stacked but don't think that has worked out too bad for Lena either. Their quarter:

(3)Makarova/Vesnina v Aoyama/Ninomiya
Huber/Sanchez v Brengle/Rodionova
Golubic/Pliskova v Bondarenko/Ostapenko
Rogers/Townsend v (14)Bertens/Larsson

(12)Hlavackova/Peng v Doi/Nara
Knapp/Minella v Broady/Watson
Dabrowski/Krajicek v Kalashnikova/Krunic
Klepac/Martinez Sanchez v (7)Goerges/Pliskova

On a good day Makarova/Vesnina beat all these teams. Though of course with Lena and Katya its rarely straightforward.

When the MTO was over I did flip back to whatever other match I was watching, so I didn't see her retire, but figured it was more a precaution before AO.
