Seems like it was all hysteria about Peng last week, even though I've no doubt that she did indeed play outstandingly against Clijsters. Every dog has their day, so to speak. I remember when Katarina Studenikova played as well as Steffi Graf for one match against Seles at Wimbledon 1996 - and never again.

I agree.. Remember Alex Stevenson? Karolina Sprem? Shuai Peng is on that same list except that she has not even reached a slam QF or SF, which K-Lina and Alx did.

You people are so sad. One week you are all raving about Peng, and the next week you are writing her off already. :eek:

Newsflash: Peng wasn't SUPPOSED to beat Schiavone, Fran being the seed. ;)

a bad loss happens. schiavone is no pushover. peng is actually really good...definitely a top 10 player. i saw her play, if she keeps it up and plays a full schedule, she WILL be top 10.

Shuai is the real deal. It would be tough for her to have another great week after her first Tier 1 SF. Give the girl a break. She has all the talent for Top 10...

Considering Lepchenko hits almost as hard as Shaui, but with less consistency, I wouldnt say it will be a "bye."

Fran's one-handed backhand is getting better by the way. Saw her playing Patty Schnyder at the Acura and she was hitting it very well and mixing in the slices too. GREAT WIN FRANNIE!!! :hearts:

Peng :sad:

Shuai :sad:
If you knew anything about her you'd know she was good, but you cant expect her to be consistent yet. Fran is a good player on hardcourts and she reached the US Open QF once so its not like its a horrible loss.

Typical Fran score. Loses first. Hangs on to take second. Takes third at the end.

The other perm is win first. Falter in second Pull out third or lose.

iIs odd because she has the shots to win in two but instead she wears them out in 3....
