Hannah in command. The slice is proving to be effective.

Also some great insight from Laura Robson on comms

Convincing win against the 3rd seed and 6th in junior rankings who is 4 years older.

Hannah really has got everything - big serve, huge grounstrokes on both sides, great defence and a slice. Just needs to develop moving forward on the court as she is good at the net(apparently)

Fantastic win. She was really solid throughout. Took a few match points to get it across the line but she got there. After yesterday, it's nice to have a (relatively) straightforward match. Plays 10th seed Samsanova in the QFs next.

Hannah really seems to have come on from the summer. This heat is a killer for everyone though!

Hannah's quarter-final is against one of the two Caech girls who dominated Tennis Europe under 14 events last year. Laura beat Hannah fairly easily in the European U16 Summer Cup final a month ago, but that was on clay, which is Laura's best surface.

So QF's for Hannah in both singles and doubles. That's very impressive.

Hannah is the featured article in the ITF coverage today. Also Colette has written the following in the Zootennis blog;

"Klugman got a big win today, exacting revenge for a loss in the Wimbledon Junior Championships with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over No. 3 seed Sayaka Ishii of Japan.

The 14-year-old, who lost to Ishii 6-4, 6-4 in the third round at Wimbledon, said she came up with a new strategy before taking the courts today.

"I was really excited, I wanted to get revenge of course," said Klugman, "and I went into the match knowing more about her. I think I played really tactical, changing variations, heights, slicing, bringing her in more. I think at Wimbledon I got a bit into her flat game."

Before playing the J300 in Canada last week, where she reached the final, Klugman spent a week training in Miami, which helped her prepare for the heat and humidity that has descended on New York this week.

"It's really hot out there," said Klugman, who is a career-high 23 in the ITF junior rankings and the only 14-year-old in the Top 100. "Luckily I got a pre-week in Miami, got used to it. That definitely got me prepared."

Although New York is known for its noise and its energy, Klugman said playing at Wimbledon is a more distracting environment for her.

"Wimbledon's more chaotic a little bit," said Klugman, who lost in the Wimbledon girls doubles final to her quarterfinal opponent Thursday Laura Samsonova of the Czech Republic. "I know everyone. And I felt there was a bit more pressure there for me, because I want to do well, because I live there. But I love it here."
