Re: Cincinnati R2: Kuznetsova def Yastremska 46 76 62
Sveta played an incredible match. Really they both did. Very high quality and every point was a battle. Both players gave it their all as if their careers were on the line or even the rights of possession of Crimea were at stake. For someone who hits as hard as Dayana she makes surprisingly few errors and most of the errors she did produce came after very long hard fought points. But then practically every point seemed to be a long hard fought one.
Sveta played ridiculously well, better than I seen her play in a long, long time. I thought she played a great match against Sevastova but this was even better. Her ability to retrieve whatever Dayana threw at her and send it back with interest was scary. After a match like that, and considering Sveta's age, I would be surprised if she could maintain the standard she showed today in tomorrow's match. But if she can, I give her a great chance of getting past Stephens or Putintseva tomorrow.
