Re: SF: (3) Hsieh/Strycova d. (1) Babos/Mladenovic 76(5) 64
HURRAH! Their first slam final together!!! And first ever for Barbie. They didn't even face a break point throughout the match... and no sets dropped this entire tournament!
First set was super close, both teams defending service games phenomenally well. Came down to who played steadier in the tiebreak.
In the second set Team SuBora were just applying the pressure in every game, as Babos/Mladonna lost a bit of confidence.
Barbie was probably the strongest player on court, impressive that there was zero letdown after her singles SF. Babos hit Barbie SQUARE in the chest with an overhead on the first match point and knocked her down. I think it just gave her more anger/motivation when Hsieh served for the match in the next game. Great sharp angle winner from Su Wei to take the match!
