and Kiri lost in three sets, 6-3, 6-7 and 3-6
maria had a breakpoint in the first game of the 2nd set, but blew it....then she unfortunately gets broken, despite having a gamepoint: 0-2
She levels up to 2-2 then, and to 3-3.
At *3-4 then, Maria was up 40-0 in her service game, but still managed to get broken
Again she fights back, playing some great tennis, to reach the tiebreak. The momentum was with her, but she played a terrible tiebreak.
In the 3rd set, Kiri served first, and she was up 40-0 again. AND yeah, guess what, nadia breaks her
I was so furious then, that I didn't want to watch the rest of the match. I guess it was a good decision. I just checked the scoreboard at *2-3, 15-30, 2nd serve Nadia, so I guess kiri had other chances for a turnaround..
This loss is frustrating and was unnecessary!!
I mean, two times broken from 40-0...
Now she has to win against Zheng? Or what if Nadia wins over Tsveti in two sets? Then Kiri can even lose tomorrow to reach the SF, am I right?
Maria will play again the first match tomorrow, 3:50 PM local time, (2:50 CET)
Davai Kiri, we believe in you
