Re: Olympics R1: SAFINA Dinara (RUS) def. SANTANGELO Mara (ITA) 6-3 7-6(1)
Catfina started a catfight on purpose. She was up 6:3 3:0 DOUBLE BREAK.
Her BH DTL was on from 1st point and never went off. She hit that shot at will especially on any point after 30:30.
Santangelo's FH was so hit and miss. Sometimes she would hit a brilliant winner and then miss easy shots to the open court on it. Safina needs to work on her DFs though, that is what got her into this tussle.
