I know less than nothing about Hampton, but she took the second set against Azarenka. Do we have a potential upset here? VA broken in the 3rd set.

Edit:    -   VA broke back.  Now going with serve.


No upsets!!  VA up 5-2.

Nice match from Hampton. Seemed her back issue really prevented this match from becoming a classic. Good looking player.

Laura looked comfortable there, breaking to get back in the first set, now 1-4.

Sloane couldn't handle being up 4-0, got nervous, gave away court position, and now has no confidence.

4-4

Stephens must win this set. Surely Laura will win the 2nd set. I know Sloane is fit, how's Laura's stamina? She's a big girl.

Laura Robson turns 19 next week Babs,Laura's stamina is getting better but i'd say it could improve.Give her another year & this will go up.Robson & Stephens know each others games very well,this match could go either way.

I like Laura a lot. She has the potential to be one of my girls! I like Sloane, too.

Tight match right now. Huge point at BP against Laura.

Looks like Stephens has the upper hand in this one @ 3-1 up in second set.Time to swap channels for Fed,looks like Robson comming second in this match.If Stephens wins this match i hope she goes deep for you folks in the USA :)

3-1. Laura looks frustrated and is just swining away right now.

Robson clearly had the jitters in the beginning, being down 0-4 at one point.  She did well to pull back, and put up a good match.  Stevens outplayed her & deserved the win. 
Both Robson & Watson did well to get this far.
Hampton played very well against Azarenka, but eased off due to a back injury, I think. I saw some of this match. She had VA worried.  And I'm unimpressed with VA's comments in the court side interview - to the effect that JH wasn't really injured.  Graceless.   
S. Williams has had no effective competition thus far & her results are no surprise.
I was sorry to see Vinci go out.

Robson-Stepens!!!

Where's Dallas!

:popcorn:

I watched it.  So far I still have 3 of my favorite women in the draw:  Serena, Stephens, and Victoria!  I hope at least one of them wins the entire thing!  My Preference: Serena, Stephens, and then Victoria...but I will be happy with either one of them winning in the end.

Stephens looking pretty good right now.  Victoria looked good earlier... Hopefully Serena will look great tonight!
