The DFs are worrying, but she hit a lot of aces too. She hit some amazing winners and shiteous errors. All in all, an expected performance by someone who hasn't been on the court in a very long time.

Your comments in this thread are the only report I have been able to find about what happened in this match. Thanks....

Both. This is Ana after all, so choking at one point in a match is inevitable

Maybe in between the games and sets she has fun with the crowd and with her opponent, but during the actual match, she plays how she would anywhere. Unless it's getting really one-sided a la Woz last year and for the sake of the fans she takes it easy

I did not see the match so I am speculating based on the little bit I was able to read here.

I'm glad Maria was able to get out and do this. She'll get it together for January.

Any, Maria fans did not really know what to expect, so they have no choice but to go with Maria's self-assessment.

well, she's relevant enough at least for all the WS trolls to create 125486 threads about her on the first page every day. That's a pretty good stat for irrelevant player to have, don't ya think?

Her ranking is disproportionate to her success, that's been established
