Thanks for the match report, ajmo. 2-5 and six match points?!?! Good grief--Marjana sure is addicted to drama! I'm glad I didn't watch or follow live scores.
Did they save any match points in the super TB? It was 11-9, so maybe they did?
First set was really close but they just couldn't break, they were 0/7 on BP's. Other team took their chance as Czink served a double fault on a break point.
Second was a total broke fest. And they were losing close games, got down 2-5 and looked like it's all over, but came back and won a couple of deuce games with a deciding point. At 5-5 30-30 Czink served 2 DF's if I'm not wrong and they got broken again, but broke back on a deciding point for 6-6. In tb they were never in danger, Mirjana served a couple of serve winners, Czink with some good volleys and Lucic return won them the set.
In third they quickly got to 5-1 with serve but Czink played bad next 6 points. Yes, you could blame Mirjana for one or two but they got 5-7 down. Some good stuff from Mirjana and then also Melinda got them to 7-8. They won next two points with good play to go 9-8. After 9-9 Czink gets them next two points.
Mirjana was quite passive last two points, she seems scared to take a volley and was letting Melinda rally from the back of the court.
Otherwise she played really good, booming return winners both cc and down the line. Served could have been better. Anyway, Czink didn't seem much into while Mirjana was enjoying. There weren't many people but they seemed to be supporting Czink/Lucic-Baroni.
