Really, Petra?

Really, Petra?
So you're in a Tier I QF, coming through qualifying and defeating two quality players to get to this stage. You're facing a top player severely lacking confidence who you took to three sets this summer.
And then, during the match, you double fault 9 times. Really? Really?! You won 7 out of 18 points on your second serve, which means Ana only won 2 points of her own merit... Really?
You got 70% of your first serves in, which is good, considering you're known as an up and comer with a big lefty serve. And then you win 43% of those points. Really? 43%? Really? What a letdown...
