She did well up until 5-4* when she pissed away the last 3 games of the set. That's where the gulf in quality between the two players becomes apparent. The lower ranked player self destructs and the higher ranked player just runs away with it by keeping the ball in play.
Liv has a nice game though and I like what I saw in that first set, but we really should lower our expectations a bit.
Hopefully she will keep improving and get a decent draw at AO and whatever events she plays after that. Otherwise she has a lot of points coming off over the next 5-6 weeks
