Wow what a match!
Match of the year for me.
Both had some great moments and some average moments, overall it was really exciting.
Serena should have won it in 2 though, and some would say Stosur should have won the 3rd. Stosur missed 4 match points, 3 of them with consecutive double faults at 3-6 7-6 *5-4 40-0.
The biggest drama was at 6-3 *6-5 30-30 when Serena's first serve CLEARLY hit the net, made a sound and the net chord even moved, yet the umpire completely missed it. It's like everyone was waiting for the obvious call of "Let, first service", but it never came.
Serena seemd to handle it very well initially, just took a deep breath and composed herself, but when she lost the game she did complain to the umpire, but to no avail. When she lost the tiebreak she complained again and looked pretty frustrated. And in the 3rd set she just seemed to go for broke until the close stages where she started to try a little more. Stosur played really well and stayed very composed and solid throughout the match- except for when she served for the match and missed break points for 6-5.
I thought Serena would have handled the let incident a lot better than she did, but she did very well to claw her way back into the match.
The crowd really got into it
