I'm not surprised at all that this match between Lauren and Sloane has been so close... Lauren has never lost to Sloane if memory serves me right. I think she's at least 2-0, possibly 3-0 against her if you count junior matches as well as professional.
Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale
Despite the scoreline, I honestly think Sloane ego has gotten into this match. I don't think that she thinks she needs to do anything special to win this.
She was successfully running the girl all over the court but Davis has got a little more behind her shots right now. Looks like Sloane is a bit tired and Davis looks like she could play another 2 hours.
