i can give you a detailed report if you want. i was not scared they played bsad because mary beat jenny the day before and it was the last touney for maggie so she was very relaxed and didn´t put so much pressure on her. and she also beat chanda so both could be relaxed. mary started with an early break, maggie came back at 4 - 2 i think and up to 5 - 5 noone knew who would win the set. maggie tried some net attacks but mary passed her very often, although maggie plays good voleys thanks to her doubles success. mary broke and closed the set 7 - 5. in the second set maggie started to play more aggressive and that worked. she was up 2 - 0, then 2 - 2, but she played really well then and was up 5 - 2. at that point mary injured a bit and was short before quitting the game. i was surprised she didn´´t do it really. you know about maggie´s nerves but this time she was not nervous, mary fought so brilklantly and ther were some points i really stunned. maggie had some set points, the last one in the tiebtreak but mary played brilliantly there a´nd finally closed the match. i hoped to see a third set but sadly maggie didn´t reach it.
