    Unbelievable. I would LOVE to see Sam win it after letting it slip away to 5-5.

    There's only one way to Stosour win this match.

    10 consecutive Unforced Erros by Zheng.

    The funniest thing in AO is to see Stosour losing, haha. For any reason, ESPN Brazil thinks broadcast all of her matches.

    Stosur should have taken the medical timeout.

    OMG, another shanked forehand. Most players who meltdown like this, I get disgusted. But, with Sam, I just feel like giving her a hug. I'm SO glad she got her Slam.

    Wow some really close women's matches here. Jankovic just battled her way to win the 2nd set tiebreaker...going to a deciding set now. Watson also going to a deciding set after winning the breaker 9-7.

    Watson takes the tiebreak 9-7 after 97 min 2nd set. Heading to a 3rd set.

    Jankovic ties the match against the portuguese Maria João. I've saw her qualifier match against Rodionova, she didn't impressed me at all.

    Who cares about Watson/Pervak match. Zheng/Stosur is far more exciting !

    15-40. The end is near. I think Stosur is going to cry. I feel for her.

    And, a double fault to end it. That's just icing on the cake. That was ugly.

    If you include Sharapova's previous match, she won 22 games without dropping one.

    I've only seen Watson play once before. She's got a nice mix of shots. Not much for power, but good strokes.
