They showed it on cable in Australia and I was so happy they showed it.... they started showing it just as Monica was starting to get out of the hole and from that point, she just started playing less safely and started hitting out more... up to that point, she was hitting too short and mainly away from the sidelines and that allowed Schwartz to get to the ball dictate and expose Monica's lack of movement with her own big groundies.
Something I noticed and the commentators noticed was that Monica was having trouble moving to her forehand but I thought it might have been lingering effects from her injury. I was very worried cos I didn't know what implications it would've had for her in that match.... but once she got into the tiebreak and esp the third set, she started hitting out, was more aggressive and hit the sidelines. I'm so proud of her and so happy she won!
