I don't have much faith in Petra beating Mayr-Achleitner on clay here.
Last time they played Austrian took a set and it was even indoors.
Of course Petra would win if she played at least decent tennis but we all know she is playing poorly most of the time.
Rain in the 4th game... The worst thing is that with these tournaments played on high altitudes you can't really know how long it's gonna take to stop raining, or to start again. But based on what I saw (people walking calmly around) it doesn't seem to be pouring. It's more like boring.
What an error fest from both. The only difference is that Mayr plays like crap and still wins the match. Petra just plays like crap - first Budapest, now this. I really wonder if there's a chance for her team to get her into some sort of form fast enough to win a match in NYC, cause that's the only thing that would justify and save this summer claycourt campaign catastrophy. She is barely hanging inside top 100, and based on what we saw today, doesn't seem on a path to anything better anytime soon. The bottom line is, unfortunately Petra didn't deserve to win this match. What a strange day - Ana wins a tight one against #179 and Petra (our #2) loses in straights to #199. Nuff said.
