Wimbledon R1: Petra Martic d. Elena Baltacha 2-6 7-5 6-3

Really? Choking against a slumping grass court newbie like Martic? Pathetic.

Judging by this and Anne last year, being a DA doesn't really make much of a difference after all.

Strange strange strange match. So many momentum shifts. I don't know if it was a choke because Martic was actually the better player out there when trailing a set and a break (which in itself sounds very strange ). Strange all round.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Baltacha seemed to lose her nerve, after being in such a commanding position.

She was playing pretty well until serving for the match, then her game just got caught up in nerves and she struggled to do anything. That would hurt.

Good for Martic though Hopefully she can win some more matches now!
