Regarding the Dani Choke Watch ...

4-4 30-40, Dani's volleys. That was the moment.

Agreed. But I think anyone would have choked after missing an easy point like that.

That was inexcusable. She is one of the top ten players in the world. How does she miss it?

It was quite low, though still unforgivable.

Because her legs wouldn't move towards the ball at all. A natural reaction when you are nervous as hell - you can't move.

So true. When you're nervous your entire body feels like it's standing still.

Uhm... She was on that ball, just didn't knew what to do out of it, fatal hesitation.

Re: Regarding the Dani Choke Watch ...

I don't think she choked in this match at all...just an unfortunate misser at a critical moment. I didn't feel like she gave up in the last game. I mean, she was kinda consistent throughout the entire match. It was a key point, but not a choke
