Re: Beijing 1r: Anna Chakvetadze d. Iveta Benesova 6-4 7-5
got the win thank god. was clearly the better player, but has absolutely no confidence, she looks like a ghost of her former self on court.
she played some brillant backhand DTL winners and constructed some great points to lead by a set and 4-0, then started slapping at the ball and going for way too much and let iveta back in. held it together in the end which was good. shes so talented but is just totaly gone mentaly right now, this match was won on her ball striking abilities alone as her mind is a 0-15 deficit in every game.
good luck in your next match chak and mission accomplished as far as getting a win on the board again.
