this is really starting to become worse than a joke now. Vika was up a double break at 4-0 in the 3rd set, and has since served for the 3rd set twice and now the score is 5 all. I hate to say it, but she's become one of, if not the worst choker on tour
Good to see she won this one i wasn't expecting much from her today after her 2 long previous matches. It would have been nice if she'd made the third set much more comfortable than it was, but at least she is winning ugly whilst not playing her best and coming through these close 3 setters.
My feeling on Vika are at the end of last year she allways seemed to nervously loose tight 3 sets matchs now she looks to be very efficient in getting the wins in theses, wich I'm happy for yet I still feel insecure on her mental improvements since she still has thoses matches management problems (tanking leads etc..) and thus making things a lot more difficult than it seemed to be. I wonder how great her AO will be if she repeatitively does that ?
Hope Vika gets an easy win against Elena, even if that would be quite of a delusional tought since Elena is allways very tough to handle and if she looses well she'll just have a very well deserved rest as we'll be entering serious matters.
