Samantha Stosur avoided a bagel in the 1st set when saving 4 sets points at 5-0 down but managed to win a game but then on her serve Caroline won the 1st set 6-1. In the 2nd set, it was even 'till Caroline at 5-6 ( serving to go on a tiebreak ) 30-40 lost her serve to the only breakpoint she faced during the entire match which caused the loss of the 2nd set for Caroline. In the 3rd set, it was Caroline all over again who took advantage of all the opportunities she got, she even hit some great winners, she converted the breakpoints she had without much difficulties. She went up 5-1. She served for the match and didn't fail to close the match by winning the set and match confidently 6-1, 5-7, 6-1.
Caroline hit 25 winners during the match. She also it "only" 15 Unforced errors.
A good win against an inform player !
Still don't get it why some people tend to call her a "pusher"
Good luck in the next round Caroline ! She will play versus Ekaterina Makarova ( RUS ) in the Quarters ! In the previous round Makarova upset Mauresmo 7-6, 7-6.
