Well, right now, she is tied 1-1, but just got broken (after she broke Jennifer) the problem she is going to have is her serving. Maybe it is the nerves, but about half of her serves are going into the net.

Francesca was fun to watch; she has a lot more fight in her than most of the players who've been beaten to pulp by the top players these two weeks.
Amazing how she can actually make a big hitter like Jennifer look silly at times as they chase those angles and slices. Sky TV commentators wondered about her going for too many winners and her serve - she might do better to hit the first serve slower but get it in more often? She hit 2 111mph serves at least. If she had taken 1 morebreak point in the second set and produced one more good service game the third set could have been rather tense for Jennifer. Fran was even more impressive against Kim and Serena in the spring so if she can ever get to hold her own serve she is proving she can break anyone. Wonder if she will learn how to take the top 5 out (she downed Kim and Monica in the Hopman cup once) and if she gets there at this stage of her career or becomes an elder giant killer like Testud when she is older?
