nevetssllim : Quite impressed by Siniakova. Best shot is her BH DTL. Anticipates well, hits well on the run, has good hands and a decent first serve. Hopefully she grows out of her junior player temperament. Toys were often thrown out of the pram when things weren't going well!
Today it was enough ,,tangled'' match. Right at the beginning I was winning 3/0, but in a moment she won 3 games to 3/3 and it started to be balanced, I finally lost the 1st set 5/7. In 2nd set it started for me not very well, she was still leading. In score 2/5 she had 2 matchpoints, but I didn't give up, then in score 4/5 she had one more matchpoint, which I also didn't give her and I turned it to 7/5. It seems that I should be up now, but 3rd set I started bad. In a few minutes it was 0/2, but I was still fighting and I turned, now to 5/2. It finished 5/7 7/5 6/3 ... I'm very happy that I won and tomorrow I'm playing quaterfinal
