The stats for that match are so weird. She wins 17% of her second serves in the first set and 70% in the second? What's up with that?
And, she actually won 51% of the points in the second set, had the better stats for both 1st and 2nd serves and was still broken twice and Czink only once? The stats must be wrong, because I can't see how she lost that 2nd set. F'ed up!
It's interesting that the only "big" match she's won since Birmingham was against Sloane and that as the LL. Then, after getting her ass kicked for a set and a half, hammers Sloane in the 3rd. Then it's back to playing crap against U. Rad. !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WTF!
I use to think "mentality" and "fighting spirit" were the same thing. But Mel has taught me they are separate. She's the biggest, damn fighter I've seen, but she's also very good at undermining her chances to win.
I don't know...
do what you got to do Mel

A good win. She had leads in the 2nd and 3rd before getting broken, but came back in both to win the sets. Good serving day, winning 75% of her 2nd serves against the world 59. Good to see her making a turnaround.
26 64 63 against Silvia Soler-Espinosa
