Re: Pattaya R1 : Anna Chakvetadze def. Jill Craybas 6-1 3-6 6-3
after being broken in the 1st game of the match i was like 'oh god', then she raced away with 6 games in a row, not even letting jill have a game point in any of them.
the start of the 2nd set was tight, but chak got the break for *2-1 on a longish game. then all hell broke loose, chak df'd away a game, let jill hold to love and before you know it was 2-4* down. she got the break back but was broken againa and that was set 2.
set 3 they both held opening serves, chak held for 2-1, then broke for 3-1, then god knows what she did to get broken in about 40 seconds, jill holds and it is 3-3, with mental chak back. she got herslef together in the next serve and broke jill and sevred out to love. but those last 3 games could so have easily gone the other way.
im very happy she did pull out the win, it is her 1st MD win since the us open. still lots to work on, and the load of df's in the 2nd set when she was leading was very worrying.
still any win is a good win for chak.
oh and this win is dedicated to boreas, i know how that troll just loves to see anna win.
