Agree, Maria definitely improved from yesterday
Happy with her play until 7-5 4-4. Also happy with her play in 3rd set until 3-0. Then Ivanovic`s bathroom break totally threw her off. Thank God Maria was mentally strong and won the last 2 games. Proud of her big fight. Also like you said Ivanovic played some excellent tennis. We should not forget that.
