What a match these girls has been playing! Monica won a very close first set, and now Elena is fighting back.

C'mon Monica!

I'm having palpitations. Wow.

At 30-30 Elena served a fault but Monica broke strings during the attempt of return. She switched racquets and Elena got a first and second serves. She proceeded to serve 2 DF's. So now we're back on serve at 5-5 in the third with Monica serving.

TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Sometimes people write about choking.
Well this is a great example of choke from Vesnina. She was serving very well during the match. And when she needs to hold serve and eventully win the title, she served two double faults in a row and before that she missed a easy forehand at the net.

Come on Monica
