They fought well but not well enough in the last game.
I feel Zi let Jie down at times, but at times Jie too. But I think they were aiming mor at Zi when possible...
I'm so crushed They served for the first set, too... What the hell man.
Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours
Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.
Yep, I was there yesterday (seems like a lot of the forum were watching; we should have organised a day out!?).
To be fair I thought Sfar volleyed very well, but Jie really carried Zi yesterday.
Zi needs to learn to lob more; she just seemed to try and blast the ball at the other girls, who were so close to the net I was screaming to myself "LOB THEM!!"
I'll post a link to some of the photo's I took yesterday.
Saw Jie win her singles, very well played.
Wished her luck afterwards & she smiled and said thanks.
