This. One of the 2 times I ever cried for WTA. RG 2008 and Cincy 2010, but I think Cincy was much worse.
I remember RG 2008 and how frustrating that match was and I remember my panic
at 7-6 6-7 2-5 0-40
I was very young at the time, so it was understandable that I cried
As for Cincy, the minute the rain delay started I knew it was all over and that Kim would find a way to get away again. I started crying at the beginning of the 3rd set, what a mess I was
