Perebiynis looked like she was gonna lose after she missed 5 MPs but Vika went on a double faulting spree in the last game, including doublefault on match point in the bottom of net.
Vika played many great shots on MPs of Perebiynis at 4-5, one backhand passing winner that hit the tape and flew over, another time came to net and volley on the line but in the end she lost because she can't get her serve in!
Tanya is from Kharkiv and it was a big crowd for her
