LOL another jinx Stunning upset of the steadiest teenager around
Larcher de Brito's results from the very few tournaments she has played seem to indicate she's a little more than "just another ballbasher". I just hope she'd tone down the grunting and we won't have another Sharapova, one is more than enough.
I think Shahar will win. Most of time after such a result (for the opponent) the intensity drops a little. The last example from Shahar's praxis was... Radwanska, after she ousted Sharapova in the US Open.
This will set up a 5th encounter vs Sveta (now that I've written this Vika's chances have improved considerably ).
Shahar won 60 62 . Never got broken, she totally thrashed Michelle in the first set but contrary to Katya & Aga, she managed to stay strong and stop Michelle's attempts to come back. I like this Shahar, I am really looking forward to see her 2006-2007 (till Miami) form, I hope this is finally her time.
Well done .
