Re: Marathon match R2: Schiavone def Marino 6-3 5-7 9-7
What a great fight and effort from young Becca in just her second grand slam main draw
Saved match points in the second set, and really pushed Schiavone hard in the 3rd, just a little bit of inexperience on some of the big points off the baseline made the difference. Certainly nothing to be disappointed about, she has a very promising future if she can keep building on these moments and getting that consistency on the big points
Congrats to Schiavone, a lesser player may have fallen away in the 3rd set after losing so many chances, can always count on Fran to fight it out to the last point no matter what
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But he loves you."
