Safina choked so bad.

Lead a double break @ *4-1 in the final set and served for it at *5-4

Classic choke job Oafette

what a bad scoreline, 7-6 0-6 7-5, Alona seems like she tanked that second, but Dinara should have won

Dinara.
I thought she had this in the bag at 5-3 in the 3rd.

Nice little comeback from Alona.
Especially after being bagelled in the 2nd set.
