Very dramatic match! Tanya led 4-1 then Vika fought back to take the set 6-4.
Then Tanya rushed through the second 6-0.
Vika led 3-1 in the third, then Tanya broke back and led 5-4 and had 5 MPs on Vika's serve but couldn't convert.
At 5-5 Tanya was down 15-40 on serve but fought back to hold.
Vika had a gamepoint on her serve at 5-6, and Tanya needed another 2 to win.
Vika lost the match on a double fault ... her 14th in the match :eek:
Both players had TERRIBLE breakpoint conversions: 9/23 for Perebiynis & 6/21 for Vika.

Congrats Tanya :bounce: So proud you finally won this match! :D

Yes totally. No points to defend for a while, so I hope she can keep healthy and gain on her ranking. She's already lived up to her ranking here, anything else is a plus.

Great win for Tatiana! :yeah:

Really interesting draw for this $100k ITF event.

Maybe in a few years time they will put a WTA event here, after all the Bondarenko sisters are getting better and better all the time.

end of match was shown on Megasport.

Perebiynis looked like she was gonna lose after she missed 5 MPs but Vika went on a double faulting spree in the last game, including doublefault on match point in the bottom of net.

Vika played many great shots on MPs of Perebiynis at 4-5, one backhand passing winner that hit the tape and flew over, another time came to net and volley on the line but in the end she lost because she can't get her serve in!

Tanya is from Kharkiv and it was a big crowd for her

Vika is the most beautiful Ukrainian player :hearts:
