FQR: (8)Alexandra Cadantu def. (4)Mona Barthel 6-2 6-7 6-4
Nevermind, party time!!
OK, just to help my brain realizing:
-2nd Top 100 win, highest win ranking wise
-First WTA main draw on indoor hard
-Top 100 super close now
Of course the cameras weren't on at time, so that I had to rely on scoreboard watching:
Alexandra serving GOAT Cadantu only losing 4 points on her own serve, only 4 points?
And this after losing the first sets against Jurak and Klepac!
A mixture between holding and being broken to 0 with Alex finally serving for the match at 6-5, DFing twice (probably on underarm
) and broken to love. Then, a MTO, probably from Alex to get some time and break Mona's rhythm.
Mona hold to 0, though and i expected the worse...
Like in Set 1, Alex with a fast 4-1 lead, but then her usual choke to not leave the court too early and gain some more experience!
At 4-4 Mona served for an epic game where Alex at first squandered 4 BPs, but also saved 2 further GPs and finally broke...
Then, she served for the match, DFed again, but was unbelievably able to take her first MP to win it all!
This match must have been so epic! Damn cameras!
And now draw Yakimova or Minella!
