Båstad Q3: RoGOATska def. Bovina 2-6 7-6(8) 6-2, Saves 4 consecutive MPs
Poor old struggling Olivia Rogowska (AUS) had a good come-from-behind win yesterday against former top 20 player, Elena Bovina.
Elena had played a marathon match the previous day lasting 4+ hours. She started off well against Liv, going out to a 6-2 4-1 lead. Liv somehow managed to get back into it and had 3 SPs at 6-5. She couldn't close it out and the 2nd set went to a tiebreak and Bovina had 4 MPs at 6-2! Again, Liv came back and took the tiebreak 8-6 and then won the 3rd set easily.
Nice to see her back in a WTA main draw. She drew Pennetta in R1, so don't like her chances, but still, a good effort from a slumping sister...

Reason: She actually saved 4 MPs I've been told, not 3 :)
