That really wasn’t the first match you want, but she stepped it up in the third.
Overall I think Maria played very well, maybe a little to defensive in the second but you can also blame the wind for that, and of course her opponent, it’s very typical that Maria brings out the best tennis in someone.
Well done Maria!

You knew the winner would be the one who controlled themselves better over the course of the wind and the match and it was MARIA!
What a thriller! Like watching an old school desert novel unfold in front of your eyes!
The sand. The spectators loved it all! They all stayed until match point!
