Re: ACE QUEEN Sveta dispatches Radwanska in 3 SETS, will probably face SERENA next
Overall, a terrific match - both had more winners than UEs by a good amount, and some wonderful points in there from both.
Sveta lost her way a bit, tactically, towards the end of the second set and it cost her the set. Then Radwanska definitely felt either fatigue or the blister problem or both and was flat at the start of the third. Then Sveta managed to go walkabout a bit before refocusing to serve out. The end of the third set was the scrappiest it had been all match and was a bit of a shame - Sveta needs to work on getting it done from a good position - she can give the opponent too many bites at the cherry.
But, in the main, a very engaging encounter with some great tennis that didn't quite engaged the crowd as much as it should have done, I think - they seemed a bit quiet.
Well done to Aga to make it such a good match and to get through yesterday over Bartoli - well done to Sveta for pulling this one out and, in the main, playing an excellent match.
