Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Roby lost 6-1 6-3.

Time to dust off the clay (good riddance!) and head for the grass.

I hope her foot is ok

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Well Kiki won both singles and doubles in Nurnberg so it makes the loss sting a little bit less.

Formidable draw for Roby with her meeting the dangerous Kateryna Bondarenko first round. Potential opponents in subsequent rounds are tough but she cannot afford to look ahead.

Roby has a 2-1 lead H2H but they haven't played since 2009. Hoping Roby will bring her 'A' game, get past Kateryna, and pickup some momentum and confidence to make it to the second week.

FORZA! ALLEZ! VAMOS! (Is that last cheer allowed?)

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Roby lost 6-4 7-6(4) after leading 4-1 first set.
She battled back from a break down to even the second set at 5-5 and had a 2-0 lead in the tiebreak but Kiki played a great match so kudos to her.
Hopefully a good draw for RG!!!

Roby opens Nurnberg three set win over Barbora Krejcikova 6-2 2-6 6 3 in the first round.

Lots of points to defend and a tough matchup with Kiki Bertens awaits next round. Good luck Roby

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Assuming no one ranked higher gets a WC for Nurnberg, Germany, Roby will be the second seed there behind Kerber. Hopefully she can win a couple of matches and gain some confidence before heading to Paris.

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Roby got rid of the nerves in the second set but Johanna came up with some big serves and shots at critical moments in the second to win 6-0 6-4. Hopefully a better draw and some wins in Paris before grass and hard court season starts. Carry on!

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Johanna Konta will be a tough second round matchup in Rome but I trust Roberta will persevere tomorrow

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Disappointing loss to Kovinic in the first round of Madrid, 6-4,6-2. THe match lasted an hour and a half with lots of deuce games; however, Roby won only 1 of 9 break chances.
Unfortunately Tennis TV did not cover the match due to "broadcasting rights"
On to Rome for some home cooking, followed by a week off, then to Paris. Forza!

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Roberta drew Danka Kovinic first round in Madrid.

There only meeting was in September 2015 just two weeks after Roby's incredible performance at the US Open. Roby triumphed 5-7 6-1 6-3 in the first round at the premier event in Wuhan. This began another winning streak of four matches, two over higher seeded opponents, Kvitova and Pliskova, before losing in a third set tiebreak to eventual champion Venus in the semis.

Forza Roby!

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Very good showing in Stuttgart making the QFs. A bit hampered by an ankle injury, Roby has wisely withdrawn from Prague where she would have been the top seed. Madrid appears to be the next stop unless she needs additional time to recover.

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Great escape against Lucie Hradecka and a third round exit to a formidable Madison Keys.

Another jump to #8 in the rankings

Now some much needed rest before clay season. I believe Roby's next tourney is Stuttgart.

Re: Forza Roberta!!!

Roberta has moved up to 9th in the world!

Bye in first round in Miami then Genie Bouchard or Hradecka in Round 2. Tricky.

If seeds hold, Bencic is Round 3.
