GOAT:bowdown:

Second time in four matches she's come from match point down to win.

Sori:hug:. A win over the FO champion and then this fight today is certainly showing an upward trend on her previous form.

TB score in the 2nd set was 8-6, not 7-4 ;)

Kuznetsova once again barely escapes, next is Makarova. You can't blame unlucky draws for her fall in the rankings I guess :lol:

Sveta :yeah: :D Once again saving a MP in the 2nd. :unsure:
Sorana was definetely playing with less pressure with her FO QF points being off it seems. She will bounce back.
Makarova trashed Petrova. She will be another tough one. :unsure:

Unbelievable. I donīt know how often Kuznetsova had managed to get out of a tight spot. Is she the luckiest player ever or is that one of her weapons, that you have to "kill" her twice and even then itīs not sure she stays dead.

Contrary to her "choker" status, Kuznetsova is one of the best comeback players. Of course most of them occur against lower ranked players but still...

:lol: Agreed.

I hope it was a case of Sveta coming back rather than Sorana choking. Sorana is one of the most clueless, unconfident and talent-wasting players I support but I have never thought of her as a choker.

This. It's amazing that Kuznetsova still gets branded as a headcase and choker when there's very few, if any, players on the Tour who are on the receiving end of so many chokes.

I saw this match (and Sveta's doubles as well). In the first set and a half Cirstea with her flat groundstrokes was overpowering Sveta. Sveta was not playing badly, but Cirstea was just too good and got herself a break to serve for the match. But from that moment on, Sveta started mixing up throwing slices off both sides and, to a surprise to a lot of fans who had watched this match for >1hr by that time, won the set. In the final set, or the first part of it, Sveta was all over the ball, mixing it up, serving and volleying and playing like a top 10 player. Cirstea called for a trainer on one of the changeovers at that point, but was just given some medication - not sure what. At 4*-1, Sveta for some reason decided to go back to the tennis they played in the first 1.5 set and found herself very quickly at 4*-5 as Cirstea yet again was overpowering Sveta. The last few games were just nothing but some ue's on both sides as both of them got really really nervous. Overall, it was a good win. Cirrstea does hit really well - when she was playing a practice set against Kim earlier in the week, she was actually beating Kim as well by overpowering her. I'm a bit surprised she has not reached more at this point - she looks like she has a lot of potential. And yeah, I hope she drops that Ajdes... They are annoying.

Sveta looked like she really really wanted a win. For the first time I saw her being so emotional on court.
