She will have to attack the Italian's serve and not get involved in too many baseline exchanges. It will be tough.
I wrote a more detail observation, but by the time I posted it I lost connection.
I just wanted to say that I disagree. Simona plays good tennis from 4-All in the first set, until the end. If you are in the USA and have ESPN, you can watch the Replay on ESPN3. I missed the match LIVE but just watched it.
I am very please, despite the usual problems. She is improving. I noticed a few positive changes.
I think, if her ankle holds, she has a pretty good chance of knocking out ERrani. I feel confident.
