I just looked at the match stats. It looks like Laura's serve wasn't great (although much better than it has been until recently). The DFs crept back in (6 in a fairly short match) and 56% win on first serve, which isn't bad but needs to improve, as does the 25% win on second serve.

The winners and UE error stats are again clearly wrong as they obviously count only the aces as winners and the DFs as UEs

I don't want to sound too negative though as Laura pulled off a straight sets win against a potentially tricky opponent, which is all you can ask really.

Fantastic. Now I have my new Password and I can write again.

But more fantastic Laura had very good weeks. I had my doubts about getting a turnaurond. But she is playing the level, which we can expect from here. She is beating opponents, who she should beat and that without losing a set(or almost )

Maria is a tough Opponent. She is playing more a defensive Tennis. She is playing a lot of slice with her backhand. So Laura has to minimize her faults and she has to be aggressive and she cannot allowed to get frustrated from the playing style of Maria.

For example Jankovic get frustrated from this playing style at the French open.

So Good luck Laura for this match and it would be a huge sucess, if they could get in the main draw.
Who would thought four weeks ago, that there is a real Chance, Laura can Play in the us open main draw!

Great

Wow, just logged on and seen the result. I feared the worst with this match but a straight sets win is fantastic. As Mr S says, Tatjana will be tough but if she can beat Shinikova I think she can beat Tatjana. At the very least, Larua has show that finally she might be coming back into some good form. Surely winning the two titles last week and these two wins will have connived her that she really can still play and win.

I succumbed to sleep and had either dream or checked the live scores when very groggy and thought Laura had lost the first set. So when I woke to find she won in straight sets I was very surprised but relieved!

7 matches! She hasn't lost a set since the Tara Moore match.

She will be playing Maria, who seemed to have a much tougher time in her previous match, getting bageled in the first set but coming back to win. Still, I think it's going to be tough but at least Laura has played her before, so she will hopefully come up with a good game plan.

The rain is the problem at the moment. I just hope Laura's match can play today.

Yup. I think she's looking to see what will happen this week at the Open to decide.

Maybe she wants to play doubles with Freya. Maybe the priority is entirely notional as she expects to withdraw from one of the tournaments before the deadline.

Yes, that is smart. Plus the following week is Albuquerque which I assume she will enter and she will probably have to go through qualifying there, so makes sense to play a tournament where she can get into the MD before that. Also there are more USTA 50ks later on in the season anyway.

I think she has to start looking up a bit, in the end confidence has always been the problem with this comeback, hence how at times she could compete with decent players but also lose to dreck.

You don't want to get too excited about her win, but in the end the confidence finally looked to be flowing, she still has the game.

50k isn't really that daunting.
