I meant dropshot from Vera. At her having a double breakpoint at 15:40, 4:4. She had Kim completely ouf of sight, she had a very short ball, probably center of the court or even closer, and she chose to play a droppie, instead of simply putting it away and netted it.
I say Bovina-Foretz match, and that was the worst match I've seen all week. Very mediocre play from both sides, not much pace in groundstrokes, and even with that they could not keep the ball in play for more than 4-5 shots. And both were so slow, moved so bad, they would not chase very reachable balls. Bovina, compared to any other Russian player I saw, looked so immobile, so slow. The sole determinig factor of the match was Bovina's serve. When it deserted her in the middle of the second set, she looked completely hopeless, having no clue how to win points and lost 7 games in a row. Given what I saw of Schiavone, that it takes 3-4 winner-like shots of Dementieva's forehand class to get the ball past her, I just can't see what could be Bovina's percentage play in this match. If she serves extremely well, it could be close. Otherwise Schiavone will win pretty easily. Dementieva and Panova had to run so much, chase so many balls to keep it close. Bovina is simply not capable of that.
