Roland Garros R2: Petkovic def. (25) Hsieh 4-6 6-3 8-6

Wow, brilliant match So much intensity, so much drama. I was sure Andrea was going to lose after she smashed her first MP into the net Hsieh was only two points away from victory multiple times in the third set.

Epic match between two great girls, huge atmosphere on Court 14, and no drops in intensity.

What a shame SW couldn’t convert her many BP opportunities early in that 3rd set. She was even two points away from the match on 2 different occasions. This slam is so cruel to my faves lol.

She probably wouldn’t have been able to get through Ash anyway, but hopefully she can STILL end this fortnight with a CHR at the age of 33!! Shot of the day for that lob, and the doubles title wouldn’t hurt either.

Hats off to Petko who played her best match in… well, ages, and definitely needed this more. She was so sturdy in the longer rallies and hitting really aggressively today, as well as stronger on the big points. Thoroughly deserving of this win.

I'm so glad Petko finally got a reward for all the hard work. 🙂

You know what inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan has to say about them...

Petkovic and her stone hands win with a dropshot winner.

As she missed that smash I was really afraid to
And then she hit such a good dropshot.

Great atmosphere out there with lots of Petko fans

Re: Roland Garros R2: Petkovic def. (25) Hsieh 4-6 6-3 8-6

nice job by Petkovic to take advantage of this soft section in the draw and pick up a 230K check, but i really hope Barty takes care of business with her in the next round... Petko would be a walking bye in R16 against Williams/Kenin, and it's better to have the top players around for the second week. Pretty sure Barty can get through based on today's performance, DRC is a tougher out than Petko these days.
