FO 1QR: (23) Vickery def. Liu 4-6 6-3 7-6(10)

Epic 3rd set from these two!

Liu led by an early break to go 3-1 up but Vickery got it back to 3-3.

Liu serving at 4-4 had 15 deuces, saving 8 BPS!! I thought Vickery would fold like a cheap tent in the next game but held for 5-5.

Vickery broke Liu to serve for the match at 6-5 but got broke back to 30.

Liu up an early minibreak in the tiebreak and held that to lead 5-3. Liu had match points at 6-5 7-6 and 8-7 in the tiebreak but Vickery dug deep to win it 12-10 on her 3rd match point having had match points at 9-8 and 10-9!

Liu wasted a couple of match points last year too in RG 2RQ

Vickery could barely move by the end but Liu flopped the first two MPs with nothing return errors, and Vickery nailed a desperate pass on the third.

Vickery’s sportsmanship was pathetic and attitude completely unprofessional. Liu isn’t going anywhere losing to her. With that said, that was one of the most dramatic matches I’ve seen in a while

I didn’t believe anybody fell for her act anymore. She is ALWAYS dying inbetween points but is never actually that hindered during the rallies. In addition to that, today she was having a non-stop dialogue with herself about how stupid she is, how she can’t win a point and so on, all of it while staring directly at Liu. I kept thinking how great it would be if it was Cirstea on the other side because she would’ve shut the drama queen down.

The funny thing though is that Liu gave no fucks about her antics but lost anyway. That’s all you need to know about where her tennis is at these days. Ridiculous net approaches off the randomest balls, unexplainable return errors and not a single dropshot against somebody retrieving miles behind the baseline.

I mean I'm glad she won because I got her at 4.333 live in the 2nd set but my god that third set was so dramatic and nerve-wracking for me!

Liu Hopefully she can get some momentum going on the grass because she's had a rough stretch for about nine months now. Defending 75% of her ranking points between now and the US Open.

Yeah Saschia has the most negative attitude on court. I wish she'd stop moping, it's so unpleasant to watch. But hey it works for her.
Liu has a high risk game it seems, so she can lose to anyone. Her whole thing is rushing to net. At this level, girls have really good passing games so don't think she can ride on that.

Everything about Vickery is just plain awful. Pedestrian game and poor attitude.

They actually played each other in Wimbledon qualifying a few years ago and I'm pretty sure Vickery's mother was trying to put Cirstea off. Either way the umpire got involved and Sorana wasn't very happy with Team Vickery's antics.

Claire is playing worse tennis than she did when she was in the juniors. Yikes.
