Set 2: 2-6
Robson's erratic play still ensues, and struggles to win the longer rallies. It seems like Kvitova's fitness has improved. In one point, she ran from the back of the court to scoop up Robson's drop shot, which was pretty decent, and directed it down-the-line. Kvitova was fast! And she mostly won the rallies of 5 or more shots played. While Robson complains: "why everything is so late!"
And so it is, Kvitova triumphed with her improved fitness and power, and helped by Robson's charecteristic errors.
Thanks for the write up... whilst it's a little early to get too excited I've always said fitness is the issue, everything else, confidence, mental strength consistency etc will all click into place if she could just get match fit.
