Does anyone have any info on what happened in the 3rd set? Did Sam find another gear or did Peng just choke? Anyway, winning from 1-4 down is hardly a huge turnaround, after all it was just one break of serve.

Good for Sam and that one lonely fan from airport (just kidding I´m a fan too) .

Addicted to tennis, now and forever.

I guess ShuShu's failure to win titles applies to third-place titles and exhibitions too .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Yep, but that wouldn't be a smart strategy against someone like Sam. She's always going to attack, and if Peng didn't keep the pressure on I think Sam would find it pretty easy to take control. That's probably what happened.

Still a great effort from peng given her last result against stosur. Cause she's double handed on both sides, she can't deal with the kick from sam
