First set was BOOOORING! But Vee played ugly to win it 6-3. Some crazy first serves, no rhythm on ANY shot (many shanked fhs and taking bh too early on many occasions)... oh, except the smash, Vee had that DOWN! even with the sun, but Aga had it worse with a dicky fh and terrible serve!
In the second, Aga seemed to have NO energy early on. Vee got her serve going to an extent (she didnt hit the baseline or bottom of the net NEARLY as much as the first set
) and towards the end of the match she REALLY started firing those 115-120s with quite a few aces/unreturned, and started feeling her groundies. Aga continued being a mess. Not a good day for Miss Radwanska! Oh, and Aga REALLY needs to learn not to dropshot Vee so much!
A big problem for Vee in this match, the first set particularly (a recurring problem, actually) is that she plain-out REFUSED to budge off the baseline, and Aga was playing a lot of balls deep. If vee had just taken ONE step back when on the defensive, it wouldn't have been such a huge effort!
In a nutshell: Vee played below average, but it was all she needed. Aga SUCKED!
Dear Oprah, we thankyou for stopping the rain ! And also for allowing Vee to overcome her toughest opponent... her own fh Hallelujah, praise Gayle, Amen!
