After the match, the Bulgarian girls stayed on court and practiced a little. Then there was an one hour break between matches, very boring
There were free newspapers for the spectators so I took one to pass my time... Luckily, I was saved from boredom by the Belorussians who came to practice in approx. 15 minutes.
I really enjoyed my time at FedCup but seeing Vika was the icing on my cake
She seems to be very demanding to herself and to those who work with her, really hardworking. Amazing shots, very powerful yet precise and deep. I'm a fan now
So Vika was hitting with Olga for about 20-30 minutes.
Ani vs Govortsova
As in the previous match, some choking from Maret again, but very solid win overall. Olga was a little slower and less powerful and it was the decisive factor.
Kanepi vs Azarenka
Amazing start from Vika, great shots. Kaia had no idea what to do with Vika's power first 1,5 sets.
At 3-1 in the second Kaia broke and Vika was very disappointed about that. She started to hit waaay more UEs (she almost didn't have them in the first) and she was very angry at herself whereas Kaia stayed very calm and she was just doing her thing. From 3-all on Kaia dominated the game, she was hitting a lot of winners and making Vika hit errors. Vika was nearly crying, it looked like she has no idea what's wrong with her because she was trying very hard but in the third set she could barely hit a winner, most of her shots went either out or to the net but I must give Kaia a credit as well, she had a lot of amazing shots.
Of course I wanted Estonia to win but I really started to like Vika
She's an amazing player but it was not her day obviously.
Vika left the court very quickly, I didn't even notice how
The stands were full and everyone was giving Kaia and the whole Estonian team standing ovation for quite a long time. Amazing atmosphere it was!
