Re: New Haven R2: Caroline Wozniacki def. Sofia Arvidsson 7-6 (4) 6-2
Got to see this live too. Woz was really subpar today, served and played pretty poorly, but she got the job done. It was vital Sofia took the first set if she was going to have any chance because she was getting into 5-10+ ball rallies with Woz early on (and losing majority of them) and Woz was just tiring her out. Midway through the second set Sofia went really hot shortening the points and (lol) overpowering Woz. She went up early in the TB and she really had the momentum on her side winning like 5 out of the last 6 games or something to matter, but couldn't close it out. Second set was telling, Sofia looked tired and absolutely imploded especially in the last 2-3 games of the match going for shots landing halfway up the net that just weren't there
First time seeing Woz live and crazy to see how even someone with average power like Sofia can overpower her at times. She'll have to play a lot better against Domi. Also random, but called down Piotr in twice and imo wasn't even needed. Imo, not gonna win a Slam that way.
