Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!
7-5 6-4 over Norris
That's a match she would have lost 2-3 months ago
Then she won FQR over (6) Alexandra Stevenson USA (#412, former #18 and Wimbledon semifinalist) 6-3 6-4
Obviously Stevenson is not the player she used to be, but it's still a good win for Valentini
I thought Valentini would struggle against Stevenson's serve (she set the aces record in Quebec City qualies last September, so her serve is still good even though the rest of her game has gone downhill), but Valentini broke her serve 6 times
I followed the scores from 6-3 *4-3 and Valentini got broken so I thought she would blow it then, but she broke back right away and then served it out
MD R1 vs. (7) Eri Hozumi JPN (#174)
It will be tough. Hozumi has beaten the likes of Bencic and Tanasugarn recently, among others. Valentini has nothing to lose though
