Id she can in this still in 2 sets, I'll forgive the choke, cause that 1st set looked nasty for hampton.

But if she has to take it to 3 sets...I'll be very very pissed.

She certainly likes to keep it interesting.

Few. OK crisis averted. If she plays like in the first set - massive assumption she played well I know - she can win this.

Whew! I did not want that to go to a third set, I really didn't. Weird scoreline. Hard to say what was going on, but my guess is that Hampton was going for broke on her serve, which only started firing in the second set. I think Sam would have won a third set if it had come to that, but I'm very pleased she didn't have to.

^In the first set not at all, but at the start of the second set she was winning all her second serve points. Unfortunately it seemed to go off the boil a bit towards the end, which is probably part of the reason why she struggled to close it out. I had the impression that Hampton was serving very well for most of the second set. Except for the 2 games when she was broken she seemed to be holding more comfortably than Sam.
