Re: Yanina Wickmayer takes her 2nd title of the year,defeating Kvitova 63 64 in Linz
Yanina looked tired for a portion of this match. In the ist set she jumped to a 3-0 lead, only to have Kvitova win the next 3 games. Yanina was hitting all her shots down the middle in the ist 6 games of the first set. Yanina woke up in game 7 and starting playing her usual corners game, applying pressure. Wickmayer won the last three games of the first set with 2 unreturned serves in game 9.
Yanina appeared sluggish in the ist 3 games of the 2nd set trailing 2-1, but the key games was game 8 with Yanina leading 4-3 on service for game 8. Yanina trailed 0-30, but Yanina stepped into a two backhand shot down the left sideline for a winner. That shot would carry Yanina the rest of the way. Both players held in their next service game with Wickmayer winning 6-3,6-4.
