Iveta was cruising 6-1 1*-0 and then. :tape: :tape: :tape: :tape:
This is a new low.

Raluca is a great young player. Nothing to be ashamed about losing to her. If you mean the match points and choking, then I see what you mean. :hug:

Don't know which devil's curse is put on Iveta, but presently she would even give away a 6:0, 5:0 lead - one has to love her anyway.
