Kata had two break points and a second serve on the first at 2-2 in the third. Justine saved both with four aces in that game and that was the turning point.

This match sounds exciting as FUCK to watch, I really want to see this. There had to have been so many delicious winners and volleys from both.

I'm proud of you Kata; she fought so well, so so so well. This has to be a confidence booster, to know she took the world #1 to the limit.

A win is a win!

Kata is a very talented player. I hope she takes something from this and has a good next tournament.

Pffff, Justine always gets through these kind of matches.

Katarina fought sooooo hard for every ball and would have deserved this match soooo much.

Great fight for Katarina against the world #1. Really impressed with her effort. Gave Justine a big scare.
