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...
The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
