At least the wrist seems to be good. With a few matches under her belt, hopefully she'll iron out the kinks in her game in time for the Aussie Open. Man, I miss the Stuttgart '11 days....
She's not as off-balance 2nd set as she was in the first. But she's just not capitalizing on Knapp's lackluster moments.
