Istanbul final: Vesnina-Pavlyuchenkova. 3 parts, no need to join
They are mkv files, good quality image, I'm using VLC player to play- I turned deinterlace on to remove the combing effect, but it's not really necessary to do it.
My comments so far: I've only watched the first 4 games of set 2 so far (I will eventually bring myself to watch the rest), and I have to say that Elena was playing magnificently. Backhand in particular was outstanding but really she was whipping through the ball with lovely racquet speed, superb depth, power and placement on all her shots. I guess after I watch the rest I'll be able to comment on what happened after that. If she can just figure out how to play like that most of the time, she'll do fine- but as we know, that has proven much harder than it would seem for her. But really, her groundies in particular were amazing.
