Re: Ioana Ducu

Thanks to Colette Lewis

In the third set, Black was up 4-1 and serving, only to again lose five straight games, with Ducu's variety, and especially her drop shot, proving the difference. Ducu refused to hit two balls at the same pace or height, alternating a moonball with a penetrating backhand, a slice or a volley. But it was the drop shot, executed perfectly regardless of her court position or the game score, that produced winner after winner, and in the final game, with Black serving at 4-5, Ducu hit two drop shot return winners, the final one on match point, giving the 17-year-old her first trip to a Grade A semifinal.
