Well not exactly surprising, considering that Japanese and Chinese haven't been on the best of terms in the last...oh well, a few centuries... Hopefully she'll get through, to play probably Schmiedlova, and we'll get to see her then.
Really respectable stats by Petra again today, 62% of 1st serves in, 6 aces, no DF's, 62% of the points won after the 1st serve...but to say that it's a tight contest would be an understatement. I've joined minutes ago but have a feeling most games so far went at least to 30:30.
In the 10th game we saw two Morita's, one who couldn't hit anything and got Petra to two BP's, and the one that got herself out of trouble with some nice hitting and precision. This one got Petra to start swearing (surprise, surprise...) and even attempt breaking a racquet.
Petra's service game after that was pretty solid, some net play in the mix as well, but her groundies down the middle tend to get long.
