Wimbledon R1: C. McHale def. [28] E. Makarova 2-6 6-1 8-6

Acetina McHale

0-40 in that last game, and gutted it out with some great serves.

And props to ESPN for staying with it till the end.

Good win! Thought we had another Makarova/Ivanovic on our hands for a while.

Nice solid and steady effort to get the win by Christina. From what little I saw, that was more impressive than I expected.

Makarova once again proved to be a loser when it comes to nerves

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Congrats Christina.
Three terrific first serves to save 3 BPs in that last game.
Plus, she has a great defensive game.
