Re: Miami R1: Yaroslava Shvedova d. Sara Errani 63 57 76(5)
Slava's 1st win since knee surgery. Obviously a very big win for Slava and I'm delighted. I saw Sara play Clijsters last week and she played very well so I do take this victory as a very positive sign in Slava's gradual return to form. But the most important is right now Slava needs matches to get back into the swing of things and it's good she will have at least one more match this tournament. And her next match against Groth looks winnable too so there is a possibility Slava could find herself in the 3rd round here.
I do however feel quite sorry for Sara. She is a gutsy player who always fights to the end, but she does seem to lose a disproportionate amount of these down to the wire type of matches.
