Patty has won 10 straight games and in that stretch Dechy has literally won only about six points! Patty has lost only 1 point on her 1st serve (94% winning 1st serve points). She is serving her opponent off the court in a way that you rarely see in women's tennis.
Yay! Come on Patty!
Let's hope she has enough magic tricks to last through the weekend!!!

I'm going out, I'm going to drink myself to death
And in the crowd I see you with someone else
I brace myself 'cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse
The 211 kph is not true LOL - but Patty is serving awfully well. She's been hitting consistently hard serves in the 170s, the fastest i saw was 177 (about 110 mph). Patty has been killing opponents with her serving for about the last 6 months. Even against Tanasugarn at the USO last year, which Patty lost, she was serving great - her ground game was just off that day.
Patty had a glitch there against Dechy but she recovered her form in time. Scratchy at the start and finish, but for 10 games in the middle of the match, she was untouchable.
starting to look like Rainer Hofmann might not be such a bad coach after all
