Wow, what a fighter. Can't believe she won that match. I hope that she'll be OK to play again in the next round. It must have taken a lot out of her, but it's really good to see that attitude. Marion wasn't the one looking beaten at the end, even when she had the three match points against her.
After the match she said that she didn't want to lose because it's her dad's birthday today. How cute.
Oh God, Marion........
Such a terrible match to follow. She was playing too well at the beginning, I knew it would hard to keep it on. Yet I was really disgusted at the way she let exterior elements enter her mind in this second set : her Sony Ericsson patch, her skirt, her serve and finally this dizziness... She wasn't focused enough, it should have costed her the match.
Sugiyama really helped her at some points. To save the match points and to get the rebreak especially.
Bravo Baba .
Still very proud that she kept fighting. Important win. It can only bring her more mental toughness.
