U Radwanska (POL) d B Jovanovski (SRB) 36 64 76(6)
Definitely the match of the day, this being the 1st match,the day was a kinda anticlimax after this
I think Bojana played even better than the Malaysia match
attacked both corners, and return was really sharp too. Very impressed.
So I of course rooted for the underdog Ula lol. And she fought hard.
Huge defensive effort returning those sharp drives. Screamed, gestured to the coach
that she just had to punt an easy overhead because of the sun, etc lol.
In the 3rd Bojana just couldn't make the 1st serves, and Ula kinda attacked Bojana's 2nd. And what's more, Ula just couldn't nail decisive pts to win it
I think she had 2 mp in the 3rd 5-4 or something lol. But I wouldn't call it a choke, Bojana
was just THAT good (well Ula did miss some easy putaways
)...Anyway Ula later on played more confidently, evidently read Bojana's shots (her shots WERE sharp but it was fairly predictable, methink, since it was almost always left to right, right to left lol)..
Had to sacrifice almost an entire 1st set of the following doubles to watch this match, although I was sitting on court 4 (doubles match)
(have to thank the organizers for this, I could watch both matches simultaneously
