Vamos Pova! Goodluck!
Andami ko na palang na-miss. Nagclose na yung 4th thread ) Anyway, mamaya pala laban ni Masha, first match sa Manolo Santana Court. Come on, Maria!
Wala pa pala na livestream mamaya, excited pa naman ako mapanood ulit si Mash. Ang tagal na nung last match niya eh. Sana makalayo siya dito sa Madrid and di katulad nung last year na 1st round lang.
Vamos Pova!!!!!!!! Cow on Ice FTW!
Start na! as usual, hirap maka-hold si Masha. 0-2.
Okay na pala na walang livestream mukhang nagkakalat lang din naman si Mash. 0-4 1st set. Gutom siguro si Mash baka gusto ng bagel.
Don't lose hope yet. Dapat sing lakas ng mentality ni Masha ang mentality nating mga fans. She leads 4-2 in the 2nd!
OMG. Maria takes the 2nd set 6-3. F*cking yes!
Syempre naman may tiwala ako kay Mash, madrama lang talaga ako na parang akala mo wala ng pag-asa siya manalo. Chos!
Sorry Mash! Congrats na din 26 63 62! 2nd round na tayo Team Claypova!
2-6, 6-3, 6-2 in exactly 2 hours. Come on, Maria! Surprisingly, she had less double faults than Arantxa Rus. Great win. Next up is the winner of Makarova-Wickmayer match.
2nd round opponent Makarova!
Ganda nung stats niya vs Wickmayer eeehhh!
1st serve %: 72%
1st serve won: 87%
2nd serve won: 53%
Good luck naman Claypova!
Sabi na nga ba, Makarova. Kasi naman Wickmayer's footwork on clay is worse than Masha's. Anyway, mamaya na ang laban nila. Akala ko bukas pa. Head to head is 0-0. Goodluck, Masha!
"Arantxa started off the match really well, really aggressive. I was the tentative one. Playing my first match on clay in a while and against a lefty, it was tough - I had the same situation last year and lost the match."
