What a win for Beth! Looks like the win yesterday was just what she needed to get some traction in Singles again. Outstanding scoreline against Top 100 opposition really!

maybe Ajla's loss wasn't that bad after all... ;)
well done, BMS
Flipkens on the other hand... had won twice against BMS previously so I didn't really expect such a beatdown..

Wow. Good for BMS! It's always been a mystery to me how she never had a more successful career in singles.
At the end of the day I always found her technique off the ground too wonky and if she could not get forward it was always difficult for her to hold her ground against Top 50 level players.

For whatever reason I think her shot selection has always been bad too. It's like she has too many options.

That possibly too. A great arsenal but without the perfect technique execution was always gonna be difficult. But she is just a pleasure to watch when she is confident and attacking.

The timing of her knee injury was so unfortunate career wise - she was playing really well and had a chance to make the 4th round of a slam. Wondered with her age whether she would be able to build momentum again, but not shocking to see her put out some quality matches. She has talent even if she has gotten many WCs
