Slava is definitly the worst choker on tour. Shes never going to get to top 20 anything soon with a head like that sadly. Absolutely dominated this match, then whenever it was a big point you could almost guarantee she'd hit an error and she duly did every time.

Had *3-1 30-0 in the last set too.

Good match, but the last few minutes were just sad.

Complete choke from Slava.

Re: US Open R2: Vinci def. Shvedova 3-6 7-5 7-5

A third consecutive Slam cake draw for Shvedova but this time she fucks it up. Her luck in Slams has probably run out now. R1 Azarenka or something at the AO.

Shvedova is extremely overrated. Hopefully TF has learned a lesson.

Sadly, I have to agree with this

Really good match though.

Slava choked, but Roby stayed strong and fought till the end nicely done Roby

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Slava
Roby seems to be in quite a good form. Good for her

But if the earth ends in fire
And the seas are frozen in time
There'll be just one survivor
The memory that I was yours
And you were mine

Vinci did step up her game from 3-5* though, hit many forehand winners to close the match. Enjoyable match overall!!!

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

What the fuck are you talking about? Vinci is not a "cake" draw. She came into this match having won her last 12 sets.
