RE: Wimby quarters: Sloane vs. Bartoli
This is such a hard one to pick. Sloane has had grit here by winning a lot of tight matches. Yet, she hasn't really faced anyone she shouldn't have beaten. Bartoli has obviously done well on grass and is a former top 10 player.

I would love to pick Sloane but I think it will be Marion in 3.

I think Sloane will take this, but it won't be easy. Probably a 3-setter.

I'm hoping for Sloane to take it, and I went for her in 3. Bartoli is such an odd-duck, but when she's on she's very dangerous. I hope Stephens steps it up.

Meanwhile, in this match after going w/ serve for 8 games we are in a tussle on Marion's serve. A marathon of a game that has been going on for 10 min.

Finally Marion gets the AD and holds. 5-4

Now we are in a marathon game on Sloane's serve. It's Deuce and the rain has come so the match is suspended.

Bartoli is holding tight, so is Sloane. Result is a very tight match.

and here comes the rain!

What I was trying to say the other day, Sloane plays at the level of the player across the net, the other day it looked worse than junior tennis but today...

March resumed and Sloppy Sloane returned from 0-40 to break Bartoli for 1-2 score in the second set.
Back on serve, Sloane needs to win this set to even the match.

Sloppy Sloane returns. She gets the break back at 4-3, but goes down 0-40 and gives it right back. Marion to serve for the match.

Sloane is like a version of Wozniacki...defend defend defend or run down everything.Has a poor serve and the second serve is attackable.

Marion only made 6 winners the entire match? That can't be right. She makes a living hitting winners.

I didn't see the match, but that is a suspicious number, yet it can be verified here:

Stephens only winning 21% of second serve points seems like the fatal number.
