OMG! What a choke!

Watched the entire match. What a choke from Sveta in set
#2! And she sort of lost all her confidence and just dumped
shots in the last games of the 3rd set. The forehand got
worse and worse.

The Russian crowd doesn't seem to know how to lift their
team. Dour faces. Maybe Yuri Sharapov is what they need!

I feel so bad for Sveta -- in front of the "home" folks too. Too bad the Russians couldn't "lift her up" as you say.

Just curious -- where are you getting to watch this?

I'm based in Singapore, and it's on the local cable sports station
here. The usually show FED CUP, DAVIS CUP, AO, and RG live.
