Re: Annika Beck

2-1* in the second set, as expected much closer now. I'd love to see a "distance run" statistic for Annika, it's crazy how much she invests into every point.

Re: Annika Beck

Very good hitting from Safarova...going to be tough, she needs to weather this storm

2-3* Safarova is playing now more patiently.

Re: Annika Beck

Broken but breaks right back *3-3, but Safarova was punishing her serve brutally, holds will be tough with Safarova hitting like that. Good tennis from both at the moment.

Re: Annika Beck

Luxembourg line calls are incredible. But Annika can't use the gifted point, Safarova holds for *4-4.

She mustn't get too erratic, but also not too defensive. Difficult job now.

Re: Annika Beck

She's just too passive at the moment, waiting for errors, but Safarova isn't making enough of them when she can play from the middle of the court all the time without having to move much.

Re: Annika Beck

Broken, Safarova will serve for the set.

She pretty much broke herself with her pushing in that last game. Safarova just had to stand there and hit.

Re: Annika Beck

Pretty much the same pattern as her losses to Kvitova, she just cedes control of every rally when the matches get tight. Third set coming up

But whenever she tries to get control of the rallies she gets too erratic.

She could still leave herself some margin for error but at least move Safarova...Safarova spends most rallies just standing in the middle of the court, carefully picking her targets. She's making life for Safarova just way, way too easy this way.
