Re: Tati-Sveta: 9 breaks in a row - is that a WTA record???
Wow! Words cannot describe how poor this match was. Nine breaks in a row?!? That may be fine for challengers, but, in a match between a GS Champion and a Top 20 player, it is unacceptable. WHY IS ESPN2 SHOWING THIS MATCH?
I believe there were 9 (or 8?) breaks in a row in the second set of 2005 Filderstadt QF between Mauresmo and Dementieva. That was the worst match between two top-tenners I've ever seen
Being picky here (sorry!). It was the SF between Amelie and Lindsay. There were 9 breaks in a row in a 6-4 set - the only time anyone held serve was when Linds served it out at 5-4
You're right though - one of the worst displays I've ever seen! It's very rare you get both players serving so badly at the same time. Plus it was indoors so it wasn't as if they could blame it on the wind!!
