Kvitova led 4-0 in the first set and then inexplicably started hitting every shot into stands. She was 2 points away from winning the 1st set multiple times and led 40-15,30-0 in almost every game but did everything to throw away those opportunities. Hey, when you are shoe-in for Singapore, why give a damn to win a match even though crowd is entirely behind you, chanting "go Petra go" in every break like you are their fed cup heroine ?

That said, Vinci played pretty good giving Petra nothing for free. She read Petra's slow serves like a book and herself served pretty well and capitalized on Petra's pathetic ROS which is probably the worst ROS in the top 20 right now( would have been top 50 if it weren't for Garcia) .

Garbine can now become the new #4 replacing Petra by winning the title which isn't implausible. Go Garbi. :cheer:

Wow, this tournament turned to shit really fast for me. :sad:


But Roberta played a good match, she is the justified winner. No excuses here, she defeated Petra with an excellent strategy, dragging her in slow paced rallies, defusing Petra's entire power game and capitalizing on her weak serving. :yeah:

Vinci the conqueror! :yeah:

Don't be hard on Kvitova though, she does have Mono and Vinci played really well.

I really didn't expect Vinci to back up her US Open run but that's a great week for her so far :yeah:

now that kvitova is out, this section of the draw should open up for venus if she makes it to the semi-final.

Petra you scrub, losing after a 4-0 lead, and indoors too. I thought she was dangerous on fast courts, guess not.
If she can lose to Jankovic on GRASS at WIMBLEDON after winning her previous rounds 6-0 6-0, she can lose to anyone on any court at any time in any kind of climate. :crying:
