Re: Womens Tennis in General
Petrova wins 6-7(8), 6-1, 6-4 after more than 2Ĺ hrs. The decisive difference was Vinci going 0/10 on BPs.
Caro - Petrova final at 5 pm CET tomorrow. I'm glad it's NP rather than a second match against Vinci, it should be the two highest ranked players contesting the title. But all things being equal, I consider Caro a pretty big favorite. Not only is she 4-1 H2H, NP has also played matches going the full distance the last three days. That can't help but leave a mark on a 30 yo, however strong she may be.
It's a little odd to wait for a match where Caro should be the better rested! How many times haven't we been worried about Caro's stamina late in a tournament where she has been grinding out one long win after another? Or a new tournament starting soon after a deep run in the previous one? Now for once the shoe is on the other foot!
