Did you guys follow this match on the scoreboard? It was a thriller
Zi jumped out to 4-0 lead in the 1s but a mini-choke let Eleni to 4-3 ... then Zi closed out the 1s
in the 2s, Zi was up a break multiple times, including at 5-3. She had 2 MP on Eleni's serve at 63 53 40-15 but Eleni saved them and forced a 3s
in the 3s there were some breaks and holds to start but it was all even at 3-3, then 4-4, then Eleni up 5-4 and Zi held to force 5-5. Eleni had 2 MP when she was up 6-5, her advantage but Zi saved them, including one on her 2nd serve ... I was so nervous
in the tiebreak, Zi was down 2-3 but up 5-3 but Eleni caught up to 5-5 before Zi won the last 2 points ...
anyway, amazing Zi is the first alternate to reach WTA Tier I QF
but why stop there ... Safina or Bartoli is beatable
