Re: Sydney R2: Svetlana Kuznetsova d. Caroline Wozniacki 7-6(4), 1-6, 6-2
Great 3rd set from Kuznetsova, especially on serve. First two sets were not so good. Wozniacki still not there yet in her attemtp to finding the right mix between aggression and defense. Nothing has changed on her defense againt heavy topspin or moonballs on either side though. She just cannot control or time these balls, especially on the backhand. The shanked moonball that Sveta rushed to the net behind on setpoint was the perfect example.
