2. Anabel Medina Garrigues vs. Patty Schnyder
3. Polona Hercog vs. Alexandra Dulgheru
4. Marion Bartoli vs. Arantxa Parra Santonja
...5. Yanina Wickmayer vs. Angelique Kerber
harder than it should have been but she beat Kerber 46 63 63
Yanina was in GOAT mode on serve after getting broken to lose the 1st set,didnt face a Bp since then
However she had quite a lot of problems to return Kerber´s 2nd serve .Whatever,a win is a win,and I am looking forward to her r2,she will face either Petrova or Ivanovic.In both cases,it will be their first meeting
Yanina is usually a very tough cookie but today i think she should have felt and noticed that Caroline was doubting herself at 4-5 down and at 5-6 down and she should have played with a little bit more caution. She played some bad shots at those moments wich have cost her a possible 3rd set.
Who knows what could have happened in the third.
By the way, I find that commentator on livescorehunter David Mercer a bit annoying and lets openly shine through who his favourites are. I felt like he didn't talk with a lot of respect for Nina.
Usually he idolizes all the English speaking players and of course his sweetheart Caroline. I think Annabel Croft is a much more fair commentator.
Yanina tried and tried but even the netcords were against her .Still proud of her and the tournament she´s made,and also agree she could have done more on *45 *15-30 and *56 *15-30 on Wozniacki´s serve in the 2nd set,but...
She saved 3MPs fearlessly with 3 winners before falling to a good serve that gave Wozniacki the match.She needs rest,and hope she does well at home
