Still no big clay court title for Vika but she did good this week considering what happened in Madrid.
Serena's BH was a monster, it won her this match and Vika unfortunately kept playing to it instead of going to the FH. I'm sure Sam picked up on this as well.
That said I'm glad she got way more match practice in Rome than she got in Madrid.
If Cibulkova isn't closeby in the RG draw, SFs should be more than possible. Perhaps even final depending on the opponent.
