Yes but she also hit 41 winners (and 59 yesterday).
Daniela: 41 W / 63 UE
Pistolesi: 13 W / 23 UE
This shows that she is at least trying to make the plays and win the points. Some you win, some you lose. Looking at Pistolesi's figures, it seems she was content to let Daniela make all the plays and the mistakes. You can't blame Daniela for not trying. She saved several match points when down 3-5 in the second, and also managed to break back to 5-5. At least she went down fighting, and yesterday she too showed great fighting spirit after being down 0-5 15-40 in the first set to bring it back to 5-5.
She has shown more nerve and determination in these last two days than many other players, so please, get off her back and give her a break and some credit where credit is due.
