How the fuck did Petra get through this match I will never know
She was just such a MESS in that first set and in the early stages of the second set up to 3-1; then she tightened her game up and played better. Got broken twice more for 5-4 and 6-5 in the second set before PEAKtra emerged in that second set TB to clinch it (6 points in a row). 5 of her 7 points won in the TB were from her winners
That third set I felt was a great level from both ladies, especially from Petra. How she regrouped from that dismal first set despite running on fumes and outgrinding Wozniacki is just so incredible. This woman is an inspiration tbh.
Caro played like she always does against Petra, which is push push and push and wait for the UE. It worked for her in the first set and a half, then basically Petra just took the match out of her hands as it should always be whenever Petra is in the zone against Woz.
Wozniacki's whining and complaining today again, though.
12 match win streak and counting!!!
50W/59UE for Petra (she was 8/16 in the first and 22/29 in the second IIRC, so the final set was 20/15 which was amazing)
Meanwhile, Woz was 14W/30UE
she didn't play particularly well either but had her chances.
Final against Mug should be interesting. Has a 3-1 H2H record over Garbine and the last two matches were pretty straightforward wins (6-1 6-4 and 7-6 6-3).
I'm pretty sure she'll withdraw from Dubai now though, she's not that crazy to play 4 weeks in a row
