Vera
It'd be nice to see tiebreaker videos, but... Probably not

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Veteran @ 21.

Well done Vera. Second set should've been 6-0 or 6-1.

Good effort from Jamea. Vera pretty much choked in the second set at 4-0 up from what I could tell on the scoreboard. Should have closed out sooner but I guess it shows that Jamea was willing to fight for it. Nice little comeback for Vera this week.
