Re: Brussels QRD2:Sania Mirza bts Rodionova 6-0,2-6,6-2
I was at this match - I like Mirza, so have seen quite a few of her matches over the years, and the first set was amongst the best I've ever seen her play. She was hitting winners all over the place with not a lot of errors, the clay giving her lots of time to set up her forehand which was doing all sorts of damage. The final two sets were far more up and down, pretty poor and nervy from both.
Rodionova took an injury time out after a couple of games of the second set, and gave her usual running commentary throughout - complaining about the ball kids, Mirza's shots hitting the lines, bad bounces etc. I'm pretty sure that after one of Mirza's winners she said to her coach "she never played like this in the doubles"!
