She beat Bovina 6-3 5-7 6-4! Unbelievable result against a former WTA #14! A bit of a choke after leading 6-3 5-2* and four match points at *5-3 in the second set, and was also up *4-0 in the third before it went back to *4-4, but she got the job done.
I made a GM thread . Bovina is former Top 20, even if she kind of sucks now I almost think it's better that Belinda was able to win this after all the choking, rather than a comfortable 6-3 6-3 win. She's definitely a strong competitor.
Thank you! Were you at the match? Can you give us a report?
Of course I was there, but I prefered to watch other Slovak girls (Kristína Kučová and Lenka Wienerová).
Well, I came to this match when it was 4-0 for Belinda in 3rd set. As I came, she lost this lead but her father/coach was supporting her all the time. She seemed to be little nervous (and started making mistakes) but at the end she found inner strength and played some amazing shots that secured her victory.
This girl has really a lot of talent, she just needs more experience but I am sure she will be a great star in few years (let's hope everything will be ok with her health!).
