Honestly, I'm really pissed. I so wanted her to reach the semis here, she had the perfect QF opponent to do so... and I can't believe she lost to that mug. She wasted a 4-1* 40-30 lead in set 1 and lost 5 games in a row... Should have been 6-1 6-1.
17-31 in points. Needless to say, very bad 1st set. Couldn't deal with Svitolina's ball depth, missed some unmissable sitters, made many wild UEs from the baseline, and was really bad at the net (I don't think she's won a point there so far ), even though it's good to see that she's looking to move forward.
Hoping for a better showing in set 2, idemo!
