Hana's Comments after her loss to Cho in Midland last week

"I had my chances but (Cho) made the good shots in the tie-breaker," Sromova said. "I was real nervous early and I made too many errors. It was a fight for every point in the end."
The unseeded Sromova fell behind 3-0 in the second set after having her serve broken once. She broke Cho's serve and narrowed the gap to 3-2 but Cho broke Sromova's serve again and held on for the win.
Sromova continues to improve as she reached the semifinals two tournaments ago, was a finalist in her last tournament and finishes as a semifinalist in Midland. She's travels today for a tournament in Memphis, Tenn.
"Every match is different at this stage," Sromova said. "I'm having the best results of my career. I'm happy right now."

After that match with Nagyova, Hana won her first Grand Slam Singles Match! 3-0 ret. over Morigami ;)

Hana had the biggest day of her tennis career today, she faced Justine Henin-Hardenne infront of 15,000 people and did very well! She lost 7-6 6-1 but was playing very well until she rolled her anke at 1-1 in the second. Hana didnt retire though, and completed her first Grand Slam main draw match. Well done!!

Hana is playing with Emma Laine in the doubles. :D

Hana lost to Maria Jose Martinez in Acapulco 6-1 6-1 last week :sobbing:

But it's okay, at least she is back from her ankle injury since the Aussie Open! It was her first match since and also her first match on clay since September last year.

Tomorrow Hana faces Emma Laine in Indian Wells First Round...her doubles partner in the AO! Come on Hana!!
