Ultimate choke match from Sammy.
She was up 4-0 in the blink of an eye in the opening set than lost the next games to go back to 4-4. Somehow she won the set 6-4.
In the second she established a break towards the end of the set and was serving at 6-4 4-3, however she choked that away and was forced to save set points when serving at 6-4 5-6. She ended up losing the tiebreak and so it went to a third.
There she had chances to break early, set up a 4-2 lead and then almost lost her serve again. However she got through that and was lucky to record the win. Good fighting from Sabine, but seriously not good serving statistics for either (10 double faults and only around 50% of first serves into play).

Good luck in the quarters Sammy :bounce: :armed:

Sam served terrible, 10 DF's, think 1 or 2 aces, can't serve like that and keep winning. Happy with the win though. :)
