Interestingly, both of Sania’s wins against Tamarine have come in the Thai girl’s backyard, in Pattaya, Thailand. The last occasion was in June 2009, when the Indian girl prevailed in straight sets, in a quarter-final match, with the final score reading 7-5, 6-4.
Sania’s other win came at the same tournament in 2007 when she needed three sets to get past her Thai opponent in the second round. The Indian girl took the first set 6-4, only to see the Thai girl rebound by winning the second 6-2. Sania was too string for Tamarine in the third set and closed out the match with a facile 6-1.
The first meeting between the women took place in a first-round match at Eastbourne in 2005, when Sania began well taking the first set 6-1. The Thai girl was lucky to win the second set in a tie-breaker, barely edging it at 8-6. The third set was a hard-fought 7-5 victory for Tamarine.
