Anyway, it's already a success for her at this rate to hold for such a long match on WTA level. I wouldn't have thought this was possible a couple of weeks ago. Let's hope for a great claycourt season.
It's not about losing the tiebreak, it's about her not being able to win the match without going into the tiebreak or into the third set at all.

I have to disagree about seeing this match as a succes for Alex. It was a huge succes for Medina, instead. When you hold a 7-5 4-2 40-30 lead and you're on serve you are expected to win, not to let yourself dragged into a deciding set. Unless you're a Romanian (see Cadantu - Watson match in AO this year or Cirstea - Watson match in Miami, last year). Same shitty story once again.
