Liv had a point for 5-1 too
Backhand and serve really held up well for Liv. Theforehand had a bad patch in the 2nd set and she needs to be brave enough to come foreward and/or kill balls in the air.
Pretty much agree with all of this. I watched the whole match & I was very impressed with her serving in particular, very solid & a big improvement. It basically came down to Liv not having a huge shot to finish the ball with, or when she would try to come in & finish the point at net it was a disaster - if she can work on either of those aspects of her game she will win matches like this.
