Amanda saves MATCH POINTS...advances to 4th Round! WHAT A FIGHTER!!!

I nearly died when I was watching the live scoring today...Amanda lost the first set 6-4 and struggled through the second until Marrero was serving for the match at 5-4. i thought it was all over and I felt even worse when marta went up match point. I thought...ok here we go another loss to a player she should beat. Amanda saved that match point, but then there was another and I thought that this time Marta will finish it. but Amanda just wouldn't give in. She broke back...then held and broke comfortable to take the set 7-5.

there were some close games in the second set but Amanda had the momentum and the confidence and won every game in that set to win 4-6 7-5 6-0 . What a great fighter she is!!!!! She won the last nine games of the match

hopefully this match will kick start Amanda's year and she will start to play better next up she has a tough match with Alex Stevenson, whom she lost to earlier this year (in a thrid set tiebreak). If Amanda can take some confidence into this match I think she can make the quarters ....she is so great...this sort of match reminds us of why we are all fans of hers...she never gives up

Go Amanda...always!!!! Beat Alex Tommorrow!!!

I am glad I didn't follow the live scores (I was sleeping ) cos I would have been close to a heartattack!

When I saw the score this morning when I woke up, I just knew it was the old fighting Amanda That's a good sign I think

Now lets hope she can set up the clash between our 2 favs!

What would you say if we could make
something amazing
