Left for a meeting with Marta 6-4 5-2 up and seemingly well on her way to R2, came out of it to find she lost 5 games in a row to send it to a decider, and didnt fare much better thereafter.

Did anyone see it? Was it more Laura raising her game, Marta dropping off, or a bit of both?

Not surprising that this happens to a young player against Siegemund. She is one of the players who never give up so you have to play well until the final point has been played. An important experience for Kostyuk I'd say.

Oof, looks like she picked up a thing or two from her countrywoman Svitolina.

She's still young, hopefully she will learn from this.

Nice effort from Laura! Always fights til the end and experience paid off.

Re: Luxembourg R1 disaster: Siegemund d. (Q) Kostyuk 4-6 7-5 6-2

Kostyuk didn't actually play super-well to go up 5-2, Siegemund was making a ton of bad errors. Kostyuk took her foot off the gas just a little and Siegemund raised her game massively, and then Kostyuk lost the mental battle.

Huge contrast to Gauff's mentality last week - I'd also hoped Kostyuk could make her mark in a similar way, and to be inspired by what Gauff is doing. But that doesn't necessarily mean anything long term. People are very quick to designate teenagers as "mentally strong" or "mentally weak" at the start of their career.

I like both girls. Too bad one had to knock the other out. Let me do the draw next time. Don't pit my girls against one another.

This was sad to watch after Martha failed to serve for the match, and Laura was prancing around like an a***

I wonder what kind of lenghts this disgusting player went this time in order to make Marta choke. Fake MTO?, wrong marks?

It’s sad but she has to rely on bad gameship to win matches very often
