Kate played her own game, serving well, and getting nice away spin on her groundstrokes,

While Pome is fitter and more determined, Kate had her playing catch-up tennis all match and conquered her own nerves.

I absolutely ache for a time machine to take her back to the White City grass; she and Petra would have been literally unbeatable there, swinging the ball in the air as well as off the court.

Anyway, enjoy this gorgeous creature in full flight:






A massive dark cloud is forming on the horizon though; the arch-nemesis awaits in the next round.

Katya beats Domi 6-2 6-7 [3-7] 6-3. Never in doubt.

Dare I be cautiously optimistic that Cutie Katie is finding a touch of singles form again?

I know Errani wasn't at her best, but from what I saw (and I was going back and forth between Kate and Kaja) Kate was playing well regardless of what was going on with Sara.

Retirements suck, but Kate

And glad she and Lena were able to see through that three-setter in doubles

Cruised through he first set, had a bit of a wobble in he second but seemed to have things back under control when Sara had to retire.

Think that first set took something like nineteen minutes so thought this would be a quick one. But Alexandrova played a lot better in the second. Her serve looked like quite a weapon.When it was working.

Some good play from Katya. Plenty more points to defend though.

Kate defeated Katya, 60 46 61. A bit of a hiccup in the second; couldn't recover after getting broken early on, but eventually recovered in the third.

Not much to remember on the singles front in 2016. But we are optimistic - as we are in Melbourne.

A match between the WTA Finals winner/AO finalist and the True Queen of Melbourne (no offence Angie) could be one to remember. Assuming they both get that far.....

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

Last year, Kate's confidence seemed to me to be shattered after losing what she and we then thought to be a very winnable 4th round against Konta.

With 12 months' hindsight, given what JoKo has achieved since, it looks a different story. She should now look back and congratulate herself for pushing Konta that hard.

But I still think our Ekat has it in her to be a top 10 player.

If only she could play on greentops like the early rounds of Wimbledon last year all the time.

Fingers crossed, lovely lady!

Very tough section, in Serena's quarter. But she is capable of winning these 3 matches

AO main draw:

(6)Dominika Cibulkova v Denisa Allertova
Karin Knapp v Su-Wei Hsieh
Sara Errani v Risa Ozaki
Ekaterina Alexandrova v (30)Ekaterina Makarova

GL to Katya! Fourth round points to defend. Tricky first round.
