she should be totally proud of herself. She is keeping it very close against a top 30 player. if she can take the 2nd set anything can happen.
finally we have a talented player who is not a head case!
though i love the headcases
Totally agree with the things in boldface! She saved another BP in the first game of the 2nd set and takes the lead. Absolutely no reason for her to fall apart, she is on level terms with a quality player.
Donna is clearly playing well and taking advantage of whatever Vesnina's giving her but she just cannot seem to break. That's not a bad thing, especially since this something most people wish their young favourites could do at 16. I certainly do.
