Shame about the Safarova result, but what an awesome win against Pennetta.
Anything's a bonus at the FO, so to equal her best effort in what'll be one of, if not her last FO.
She'd have to feel good going into the grass court season.
I have a feeling this arm or shoulder problem is worse than we think, reading TA article Pratty mentioned possibly pulling out of Birmingham and/or Eastbourne to get it right for Wimbledon. Hope she can rest after doubles and it's right to go for Birmingham as she should do well there and i'd love to see her seeded for Wimbledon.
Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:

Unfortunately Pratty has withdrawn from Eastbourne...she must still be suffering from that injury. Hopefully another week's rest will see Nicole raring to go at Wimbledon. But this must be some cause for concern in the Pratt camp
