Third-set tie-breaks should be abolished

Being clutch is a skill which, hopefully, she will figure out soon. Possibly at the moment she might have a little mental hurdle to overcome in third set tiebreaks, since she has lost too many of late.
Exactly and it seems like my faves are fighters but the opposite of clutch player .

Hope you're right I'm very anxious by nature and I'm afraid that these closing issues would be recurrent issue that would haunt her career

So proud of Nastya !! She is such an amazing fighter.

At the age of just 16, she has all the time in the world to overcome this little problem with third set tiebreaks.

Omg, what am I waking up to I'm really glad I chose to go to bed (checked the score one last time before falling asleep at it was 4-6 3-4* ) because I would have been fuming so much after this I probably wouldn't have managed to fall asleep

Indeed, she is an amazing fighter But ugh, those 3rd set TB losses need to stop like NOW, because I'm afraid they'll end up carving into her brain indeed otherwise...

4-6 7-5 6-7(4)

Absolutely insane final set, with Nastya coming back from 0-5 MP down to 6-5 30-15, only to lose it in the TB

Queendrance's grunt-o-meter has gone up to almost 2012 levels

She was up 30-15 in that game, but to a TB we go

6-5

Amazing mental fortitude to dig herself out of a 0-5 hole, especially after losing so many games she should have won early in the set
