The conditions will only deteriorate further as the high humidity and drizzle continues, the court will get slower, the ball will get heavier, until it actually splashes when it hits the super saturated clay.
Pova plays for a QF slot in a tournament, that if she wins, will finally give her that post-surgery Major, a Career Slam and the #1 Rank. The girl has to find extra motivation somewhere for playing tennis in a cold quagmire.
But don't forget she played Justine also on a rainy day and allmost won, don't see Masha losing tomorrow even on slow clay, she still can generate pace, it's not an advantage but still.., let's hope the weather changes.
