2011/9/25: 1R: Shahar Peer  def. Krystina Pliskova [WC] 46 75 61
# this is the same one as that I posted GM thread
I don't think Krystina choked but Shahar did great comeback. Shahar raised her level drastically in latter half of this match.
In former half of this match, Shahar was bad. She committed many unforced errors and her return was not effective.
Krystina showed some big serve and strong shots (especially forehand).
But the turning point was in the 6th game of 2nd set.
Shahar's return became good and she had no less than 8 BPs in the game, Kristyna saved 7 times, but finally Shahar broke.
After this game, Shahar's strokes suddenly caught the lines and almost all returns turned strong and went deep.
In the 10th game of 2nd set, Krystina saved 3 BPs from 0*-40 and had 1 MP, but she can't close it.
In the 3rd set, there was another long game (4th game), went 6 deuces and Shahar succeeded to convert her 5th BP in this game.
After that, Krystina seemed to be out of gas and lost her concentration.
