Wuhan R1: Peng Shuai ousts defending champion [11] Petra Kvitova, 76(7) 67(5) 76(3)

3h 34mins of tennis just for Petra to lose this one.

She won one 3h+ match against Kerber last year en route to the title, and now she loses one, so I guess it evens out?

But nevertheless, Petra's results in this tournament have been quite weird to say the least... W-R3-W-R1 I guess that's Petra for you, lol.

Peng played very well, deserved this win with the way she just counterpunched excellently. She was able to read Petra's serve very well and she hit quite a few stunning winners herself.

Overall this was a very great match, Petra played well and Shitra rarely showed up (although there were some patches she sprayed, but overall was quite good), Peng was just better on the bigger points and in the third set tiebreak was just a little more consistent as Petra tired.

Impressive that Peng's form didn't fluctuate by an inch in the entire 3h 35 min match. It was Petra who was blowing hot and cold.

Ouch that hurts! Well done Peng though! She's having an excellent comeback year.

Another third set TB loss.

Peng extremely lucky to win this. Petra should have won the first set and then steamrolled through the second, instead she choked away the first and was then exhausted by the time the third came around.

Very low level of play from Petra today, serve is just so hit or miss this year. Today it was all missing. Pretty embarrassing to lose to Peng for the first time especially in Wuhan. But whatever, every dog has its day.

Apart from the random USO QF she has been in absolutely dire form since Birmingham, barely winning any matches. Needs to reevaluate over the off-season.

that took long, but it was entertaining. I was rooting for Peng at the end as Petra might not be that relevant tomorrow, she seemed exhausted.

Shuai. She hasn't been playing physically at her best in the last month or so but this is a huge win for her.

As for Petra, the tough season continues with her ranking suffering now a lot after failing to defend her points from last year. She has lost her last 2 matches in 3rd set TB. Hopefully she can do better in Beijing.

Sweat-ra was red hot. I mean, she was red and hot. I needed a shower after looking at her.
Kvitova now out of the top 16 seeds for AO - ah, well: she'll avoid Serena early on!!
