Lost 5-7 5-7.

I'm really pissed, because I reckon she should have won this match, or at it least it should have gone 3 sets.

1st set was really close. She had quite a few BPs, Monica had less, but Monica managed to convert one while Elitsa couldn't. It was very much a case of bad shot selection in the last 2 games.

Then, at the start of set 2, she played a really poor service game and got broken straight away, struggled much in her 2nd service game but managed to hold saving several BPs. She broke Monica back in the 4th game to get back to *2-2. I stopped watching at 3-2* 40-30 where I saw her wasting another BP, because I had to go.
Then I followed the rest on livescore - more or less closely. She broke again at 4-3* and served for the set at *5-3. Was broken. Then I saw she was up 3 SPs at 5-4* 40-0. Missed them all. At 5 all I just stopped following because I was so pissed off. In the end, I checked the final score and saw she lost the match 5-7 5-7.

So. many. opportunities. wasted.
She has some game, really, from the part of the match that I could see, it was only just a case of bad shot selection and not being incisive enough at the net. In the part of the match that I couldn't watch, she had many more opportunities, she basically had the match in her hands, and I don't know what the hell she did (I don't want to know actually), but she threw it all away.

Making a WTA QF would have been a huge confidence, money, and ranking points boost. She defeated herself there. Nothing more. I mean, she was not troubled at all by Monica's innocuous slices. If she can fix her head, she will the results that she'd deserved. It's only up to her.
