Bucharest R2: Patricia Maria Țig upsets title-holder Anastasija Sevastova 6-2 7-5

You heard it first here, I predicted this after the first round matches! Sevastova with a thriller against Bogdan and young mother Țig very solid and motivated against Anna Bondar.

Wow. Great win. I knew Tig was playing well but her opponent had routined her in the past.

Re: Bucharest R2: Patricia Maria Țig upsets title-holder Anastasija Sevastova 6-2 7-5

Nastija played pretty poorly today (especially in the first set), barely any first serves and her backhand was leaking errors. But it was still a very entertaining match, and full credit to Tig. I was especially impressed at her defence and then how well she was able to turn that into attack. Was she dropshotting this much in her previous matches? I often notice when someone plays Seva they will start doing it a lot as well.

Wonder what she said to her at the net? (No drama, it looked like some nice words).

No one is safe in WTA. Doesn't matter where the match takes place.

At the interview she said Sevastova is one of the players that has inspired her.

This girl is more powerful than Sevastova, is tall, could be like Buzărnescu in short time although we will see her on away courts.

Also a match with about 15 good drop shots, at least 7 from both...

I don't think Sevastova was playing poorly at all, but also I also don't think she's 100% in her best shape. Today the Latvian was better than 2 days ago, but met a player with great power.

She was the last top 50 player in a tournament this week, right? Sevastova was a match away from the top 10 last week and now this.
