Yes, she won two three set matches. But in both cases, she tanked the second set after getting behind in order to conserve her energy. I mean, no I did not see the match, but it was pretty obvious what's going on there.
Anyway, you would do well to remember that just a couple weeks back Pierce was talking about how she wasn't fit enough. One cannot overhaul their fitness in a matter of a week or two, no matter how hard they work.
But the only thing that matters is that she won. and it is true that she beat two fast players that wouldn't give it away.
