Nice choke from Simona in the first set, wasting 3 set points and after that

The choking from Halep started at 5-3, 30-30 when she was serving for the set. She hit two DFs in a row (her first two of the match ). Then she went on to waste a triple set point in the next game (had 0-40 on Cornet's serve). She went from 5-3 to 5-7, 0-4, losing 8 straight games.
Cornet played pretty well in the second set.

The blackness that falls is coming to stay

That's maybe one reason why her serve stats where horrible in the past weeks.

Well done, Alize. The stream kept dying, so I didn't get to see this beyond a couple games.

I personally think Halep is a better player than Cornet, but it is always interesting to watch Cornet's game because of her losing her temper on court and her screaming and swearing.
