As Dexter said, Vera should have won in 2 sets; there was a simple tactic to use against an injured Schivaone but she didn't use it in the opening set. And the tears came back, accompanied by some racquet throwing
Anyway, congrats to her.
Good effort by Fran, considering the injury - I hope she does well in the doubles
tell me more about it 1st set was all over her... she was arguing about the calls with the umpire (I agree there were close and maybe even unfair for her but still ), the racquet met the floor a couple of times, few tears also. classic Bepa
OMG Vera is just such a brainless player, it must be said. Does she have any idea what to do against an injured player?? Every shot straight up the middle.
Fran, why the hell did you play here?
Awful awful awful match.
