New Haven Q1R: Raluca Olaru (ROU) d. Iveta Benesova (CZE) 1-6 7-6(7) 7-6(5)



OMG! *faints*

Thank goodness, Raluca!

But wow.

Iveta led 6-1 4-*2
Raluca led 6-5 in the 2nd set with a SP on Iveta's serve
Iveta led 5-1 in the TB with a MP at 6-5 in the TB
Iveta led 3-1 in the 3rd set
Raluca had 2 MPs serving for the match at 5*-4 in the 3rd, but Iveta broke and held

Haide!

don't forget olaru's match points at 5-4, including one that she double faulted on.

poor iveta. this loss will probably prolong the slump.

Massive chokes.

Iveta was cruising 6-1 1*-0 and then.
This is a new low.

Most heartbreaking loss of the year for Iveta. She should have won it in straights

Raluca is a great young player. Nothing to be ashamed about losing to her. If you mean the match points and choking, then I see what you mean.

Don't know which devil's curse is put on Iveta, but presently she would even give away a 6:0, 5:0 lead - one has to love her anyway.

Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishing I was somebody else instead.

Raluca Repeated chokes from both players, but this may mean a new breakthrough for Ralu
