Really held her nerve down those two match points. Beltrame was very solid in the third so credit to Sophie for fighting her way out of it. Feel a bit for Severine at 6/7 she played an awful game.

Sev Really should have won this, being up 5-3 in the third, and serving for it twice.

Possibly an easier match up for Steph in the next round, though. On the other hand, Letcher will be pumped.

Congrats Sophie!!

Beltrame was up 5-3, then 5-4 40-15 then served for it again at 6-5. She was playing quite well I thought until four errors in a row to lose the match.

Well done Sophie.. she's come from nowhere to top 300 after this and hasn't even played outside Australia for 18 months!

Damn! Had to go drive my brother somewhere at 6-5 and missed the finish. Oh well great fight Sophie! She'll be in this draw next year without a WC I'm certain.

Soph I like her temperament, she is fiesty yet oddly calm. Loved her dress by the way!
