OMG Nicole just beat Conchita her nemesis!
I thought she'd put up a good fight like 6-4 7-5 but I never expected her to topple Conchita! Conchita has always owned Pratt! With Conchita up 6-4 3-1 its seemed like my thoughts were gonna be pretty close but Pratty stormed back to tack 5 of the next 6 games and the 2nd set 6-4. Final set was the same, Conchita yet again stretched out to a 3-1 lead before Pratty clawed her way back to take the match 4-6 6-4 6-4!
Awesome victory, before this match Nicole was 0-3 against Martinez
2000 San Diego Hardcourt R16 Conchita Martinez (ESP) 4-6 6-0 6-3
2001 Charleston Clay R16 Conchita Martinez (ESP) 6-2 6-3
2003 Fed Cup Clay RR Conchita Martinez (ESP) 6-1 6-2
I remember their first meeting was a fiery one. There certainly is no love lost between the two. So happy for Nicole, this was a deserved victory for all her hard work!
