i can't believe i missed this. hopefully someone posts a video
Lucic simply overpowered Vesnina. Vesnina tried mixing it up, especially in the second set, but Mirjana handled pretty much everything. She won a few long rallies, but mostly kept the rallies short. She teed off on Elena's serve, hitting many outright winners off the return. She even won a battle of slices on one pt. Seriously, Lucic hit two slices in a row and won the pt. You know things are going right when that happens.
Someone has put a 10 minute clip of the match on youtube, but it is only the last two games.
So so so happy for her! What an amazing match for her!
I think it's cute that she now has a bit of an italian accent, probably from the hubby (that ah after she says a word)!
Just have fun out there against Na!
